The best instant cameras are an essential part of any photographer's kitbag, offering something that you just can't get from point-and-shoot, mirrorless, or DSLR models. That's the instant gratification of holding a photo in your hand, which is surprisingly exciting for a generation used to digital images, and for those who remember the classic Polaroid days. They're always a hit at parties and weddings and make for a simple but heartfelt gift when placed in a frame and given to friends and family or just stuck to the refrigerator.
Unlike a classic Polaroid, these modern instant cameras also have other features, such as the ability to add filters or to connect via Bluetooth to your smartphone so they can double as a photo printer for your smartphone shots. That's why we listed the best instant cameras to collect your sweetest memories in Polaroid.
