Amazon shoppers adore retro Kodak camera with ‘very good’ instant photos

It’s no secret that retro is coming back into fashion – with people around the world digging in their lofts to see if they have kept anything which could now be worth a small fortune.

Clothing is a massive market in which once old and outdated garments have started to trend again, with influencers trying out 90s Levi’s and colourful sports jackets once more.

Video games consoles like the Gameboy Colour and the PlayStation II are back with a bang, as are the games that we all spent countless hours playing in our youth – while people are ditching downloads and choosing to listen to their favourite tunes on tape and vinyl.

Vintage cars are as popular as ever, while people are digging out their old Polaroid, Pentax and Olympus cameras to take memorable photos on as opposed to their smartphones. And if you’ve misplaced your old Kodak, then we may have found the perfect product which brings the memories back – and it’s super practical too.

Enter the Kodak Mini Shot 3, which is retailing for £122.99 at Amazon. One of the biggest names in the world of camera, this instant camera has a two in one function as a portable photo printer too. Unlike other instant cameras, the product gives you the option to choose if you like a photo before printing it off, so you’ll save on ink and paper cartridges – and it comes with 68 sheets to get you started.

It also allows you to print 3×6″ photos directly from your phone via Bluetooth, so if you’re struggling for that perfect shot with the camera, you can always use your new iPhone or Android instead and send it to the printer. 7Pass technology allows printing to take place in seconds, and they come out on laminated ribbon to protect against water and fingerprints in storage.

You can also shoot bordered or borderless photos depending on the mood, albeit the borderless option tends to print a larger picture. And with so many fun features, it comes as no surprise that the Kodak camera has achieved a respectable four star rating on Amazon based on 2,717 reviews.

Many customers praised the device for its ease of use and portability, as well as its stunning retro look.

One ecstatic customer said: “I bought this for my six-year-old to take on a short trip away and document it in a scrap book… it far exceeded my expectations in easy to use and picture quality, and then to be able to use an app to send photos from my phone through to the camera and print out is genius as there were many times when I wanted my son to be more present and not be thinking about taking photos and I could do it for him with my phone.

“I do recommend a bag to put it in as it can get knocked on quite easily which will use your battery, but with a battery pack and the wire that’s still not a mega issue. Absolutely love this camera.”

A second added: “Simple to use and takes great pictures for those memorable moments,” while a third wrote: “Great little camera. We wanted it for our wedding guestbook and worked a treat! Photos are adequate quality for the price and really impressed!”

A fourth said: “Purchased as a present great instant camera quality of pictures very good.”

Some customers complained that the battery life isn’t the best, while others noted their mechanism jammed – but overall, 61% of all reviews were five stars.

If you’re looking for a new camera but the Kodak Mini Shot 3 is a bit out of budget, then fear not – as a number of other retailers sell other reasonably priced digital cameras. The Kodak M35 Reusable Camera 35mm Film Camera is about as classic as it gets, and will set you back £24.99 from Argos, while the EASYPIX Aquapix W2024 Splash Compact Camera at Currys is one of the best point and snap products on the market for its price point of £74.99.
