instax is more than just a camera/printer. It's our travelling partner!

How to take care your instax

While the memories are priceless, the camera and film can be expensive, so we want to take care of them. Thus, keeping our camera and film in good condition will ensure our photos endure the test of time.


Here's a few tips we share to help you take care of your instax!

 

1. Watch Out for sands

Spontaneous beach date with your besties? However, keep an eye out when you’re on the sand, as leaving your instax on a sandy bath towel may leave you with a scratched lens.


But, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

With range of camera case accessories, you can protect your instax while you snap up beach memories with your besties.




2. Ways to keep the instax films

The film is sensitive to both humidity and temperature, so you’ll want to ensure it’s stored in a cool, dry and well-ventilated place. It’s perfectly fine to use (and store) our film anywhere between 5℃ - 40℃.


Do you believe that you can actually store your film in the fridge? And, it's true! However, if you do choose to store your film in the fridge, here’s a pro tip: We strongly suggest that you wait for at least 12 hours before opening the film that’s come from the fridge as it may be affected by condensation.




3. Keep away from direct sunlight

Your instax device is built to withstand temperatures as low as 5℃ and up to a baking hot weather at 40℃. It might affect the camera batteries and photo quality under such extreme temperature conditions.

Hence, make sure to store your camera and film in a cool place during the summer days! And, it’s best to not leave your instax and film packs in direct sunlight or in your parked at outdoor.




4. Going on a vacation?

Yay, we're now ready to travel again!

But, how to safely travel with our instax?


We'd strongly recommend bringing your instax camera and film in your carry on bag. As some airport baggage inspection equipment uses x-rays that may cause damage to your film, including streaking in your photos. The scanners used to check carry-on luggage tend to use a weaker radiation as compared to those used for luggage. This why we recommend taking your instax and film with you on the plane.


Passport? Check. Boarding pass? Check. instax? Double check!




5. Timeless moments for precious memories

A personalised photo wall is one of the fun ways to display your photos. What better excuse to whip out your DIY skills and keep your memories safe?!


However some prints may slightly fade over time if they’re displayed in bright areas or exposed to direct sunlight. Keeping them away from direct sunlight will help to maintain the vibrancy and colour of the films.





Thanks for reading peeps! Hope you enjoy your instax, xoxo.
