Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera

So while I was flipping through flyers last week with my mom because my washing machine had broken down and we needed to buy one immediately to replace it. I came across the staples flyers and saw that the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 polaroid camera that I have been wanting to get for a REALLY long time was on sale for $79.99 only! The camera is originally $99.99 so about over $100 plus tax if I were to buy it in regular price. Good thing was staples was having FREE shipping too so I saved about $23 in total! =D I was originally planning to maybe wait and buy this camera in Japan because I can probably buy it for a much cheaper price in one of those discount stores for cameras in Akihabara but I decided to get the camera here instead as I might not have enough luggage space to carry it back to Canada, lol. XD I can't wait to test it out and take photos with it! Gonna bring this out with me to High Park next weekend and take some cherry blossoms photos with it.

After I bought the camera online, I was looking on eBay for a case for the camera. Gotta protect my baby from getting scratches and any of type of damage! =P I found this really nice pink leather case that also comes with a close-up lens with a self shoot mirror. OMG HOW INGENIUS!!! This is the PERFECT gadget for every camwhore girl out there! LOL. Japan, you seriously make the BEST things ever when it comes to finding ways to look good in self-portraits. I was actually just thinking how am I going to take good self-portraits of myself with this camera without knowing how I will look it in since you know there isn't a front screen or anything for me to check myself out to make sure I look good in my photo and that I am getting the angle right and not taking a photo with only half of my body/face in the photo. Well, fear no more for messing up on bad angles and wasting films to take crappy out of focus and ugly self-portrait photos of yourself. With the mirror lens attached at the front of the camera you can see yourself easily and take the PERFECT self-portrait shot ever! With films being so expensive for this camera, I do NOT want to have to take like 5 photos to get a perfect shot of myself when taking self-portraits...that's going to cost me a lot of money! T___T

Can't wait for my case and lens to come! I bought one that is shipping from Hong Kong so it'd probably take about 2-3 weeks to come in the mail. Love how you can buy everything from eBay! =)
