This is a good price, so heat from me.

That being said, one big thing to note is that this is not a true instant camera, but rather it is essentially a conventional digital camera that prints photographs onto paper in an instant photo style. This could be a good or a bad thing depending on your perspective- you get to review photos before you print them saving you from wasted shots, store the photos digitally and upload them to your PC/phone, you can choose whether you want colour or monochrome in each shot because it's printed, and the "film" is cheaper than its biggest competitor, the Fuji Instax system. However the camera lacks the charm of the real "instant experience", the prints don't have the trademark analogue feel of a true instant camera photo, and, most importantly, in my opinion the photos just don't look particularly good. Whether its the combination of poor quality sensor, the shortcomings of the printing medium, or a combination of both, I personally do not like the look of the photos these cameras produce at all. This is a very subjective thing of course so your mileage may vary, but if it were me I would pick up an Instax Mini 8 for an instant camera at this price (well, the price of the red and black models) then use your phone for digital shots since it will take substantially better photos than the Snap anyway.

I love instant photography, my Instax Mini 90 saw almost as much use as my £2000+ mirrorless setup last year because I really like the charm and personality of the photos, so it's definitely something I recommend people try out. It's just a case of picking the best camera for you!

Not bad!

I have one of these and it's quite fun to take out to places.
The flash isn't great, so photos can be grainy in low light when compared to the Instax mini photos - but the advantage of the Snap is the photo paper doesn't expire and the camera is rechargeable.

I get mine from Amazon, which is about 40p-50p per photo.

Is there any reason why the white one is cheaper other than the colour?

Dreadful waste of money which just keeps on costing - until they stop making the paper. 40-50p / (very poor)photo - crazy!

We have the snap touch, love these, and the photo paper you can stick on to things, like making a scrap album , magnets etc. Real pictures you can keep not hidden in phones etc
Amazon are price matching the red and black versions
