Background and Identification
The Fujifilm Instax Minion was released in June 2017 alongside the Despicable Me 3 movie. This camera is exactly the same as the original Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 with the exception of a unique bright yellow coloring, a minion picture on the upper right, and a removable blue pants accessory that acts as a stand.
This camera succeeds the Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S, and precedes the Fujiflim Instax Mini 9. As such, it is not guaranteed that parts from the Mini 7S or the Mini 9 will work with this camera (e.g. the case). However, parts and guides for the Mini 8 are guaranteed to be compatible with this camera. The Mini 8 is smaller than the Mini 7S and it only requires two batteries in contrast to four with the 7S.
