P.S. When they say don't point the camera at the sun, really don't. I caught the sun in one of my photos and it was a beautiful black circle in the sky. Haha.
UPDATE: So I contacted Fuji Film's support department and they told me to ship the camera in with a description of the issue and a copy of the purchase order (Amazon order screen). They took about 2 weeks, shipped me a new one and gave me a replacement cartridge of film. If you encounter the E issue, and are within warranty (one year of purchase) you may be able to do the same thing. Still frustrating that this error seems to be fairly common though.
If I try to use it for photos other than the ones I describe below, it's rubbish. I'm better off getting out a smart phone (ughh), really. The camera's automatic shutter speed system with a single f-stop offers far less exposure flexibility than people have become accustomed to in the digital photo era. When you're shooting film, you need light, period. And, Instax is pretty much a daylight balanced film, so in anything but a fair amount of sunlight, you're liable to get color shifts. Again, digital has gotten pretty good at automatic "white balance," so people aren't used to dealing with this aspect of film. Even with the ability the camera offers to lighten the exposure two clicks, darken it one, and turn off the flash, the most likely outcome for large field use or scenes with wide ranges of shadow to light is blown out highlights and fuzzy images.
For composition, it's best for people when I'm around 4 to 6 feet away, and not trying to capture anything more than the upper half of the model, or even better the upper third. For street and interior scene work, the entire composition of interest needs to be something I could fit into a semi trailer, shooting from the door end, with at least 60% of the interest elements in the 60% of space that's closest to me. Any scenes bigger than that, with models or in the street, gets lost in the small image size and relatively low detail of the film.
For interior lighting, it is best when the subject is already well-lit with window light and the camera is not straight-on at the subject, but off at an angle by at least 45 degrees so the flash fills in from the darker side. Straight-on interior flash shots of people will usually give bluish skin, and interior shots lit mostly with normal incandescent/LED bulbs will be orange.
I have gotten away with exposures of ceiling-lit rooms (think a small diner) by turning off the flash and lightening two clicks, but the shutter slows down to the point where I have to factor in quite a bit of motion blur.
Low light work, inside our out, really stretches the shutter speed, and the colors go in weird directions as a result. Instax film color-shifts more like color slide film than color print film. It's weird, considering how high the ISO is.
For exterior work, it's really happiest after sunrise, before sunset, with no or very limited haze or cloud cover, and a scene that's pretty uniformly lit. Not a lot of shadow detail available. The flash is not up to the job of daylight fill work, so I always just turn it off; otherwise it will often over-light the closest object in the scene. A light-colored subject that's brightly lit with direct sun will almost always over-expose, so I use the 1-click dark option there.
If I just follow those rules, I get photos people will linger over and absorb. I'm glad I bought the camera, and lately I throw it in my briefcase or carry-on wherever I go. I run across a couple good scenes a week, just in my day-to-day life, without even trying. Can't beat it.
I've used several other Instax models, from the wide-format 210 to the previous highest-end model, the Mini 50S. I've got to say that the Mini 90 blows the others away in every regard. I've never seen shots from an Instax come out so consistently vibrant, crisp and in focus until I tried this model. I haven't even gotten around to experimenting with the new shooting modes yet and I'm still getting far better results than I got with the 50S, and believe me I've shot a lot of pictures with that model.
The Mini 90 is by far the nicest-looking Instax camera and also the nicest instant camera available on the market today. The body is mostly made of plastic, but it's high-quality and certainly doesn't look cheap (it's rather stylish and retro) and feels good and solid in the hands. Ergonomically it's much better than the 50S, with the shutter release in a much better place. The rechargeable battery is a godsend; no strange disc batteries to replace and no heavy AAs to weigh it down.
It's definitely on the high-end of price, especially compared to the other models, but given the relatively high cost of instant film, having a camera that consistently gets the shot you want rather than ones you need to retake is worth every penny. Recommended whole-heartedly, not just to photographers but to anyone who wants to bring a little bit of magic into their lives.
