You might have come across many instant camera reviews on this blog, so let me introduce you our blog called polaroids.xyz (everything about polaroid or instant camera). We usually do reviews, comparisons, writing about the camera at your budget, guides and much more. This time, we got the Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 for review. I’m a fan of instant cameras manufactured by Fujifilm and that’s one of the main reason why I write detailed articles which will let you understand what the camera really is.
Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 is a great camera from the house of Fujifilm, though this device wasn’t really performing in the market like the Fujifilm Instax mini 8 and Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic but still It’s a great camera in the market right now. I’m more impressed by the retro style of this camera which is a bit appealing. The quality of the pictures taken is really good, you can’t expect these kinda cameras to take sharp photos like your smartphone, but as an instant camera, the Fujifilm instax wide 300 is a great polaroid camera to try your hands on. The picture quality and other details will be posted below.

The Fujifilm instax wide 300 comes with a great lens and machine inbuilt which is potential enough to take great pictures. The quality of the pictures are better than Fujifilm instax mini 8, also it’s kinda sharper than the Fujifilm instax mini 90 neo classic. But as I said, you can never expect the quality of your smartphone camera or an SLR camera. Instant camera is for the heart, you just need to click a picture, it will be printed automatically, and there ain’t much stuff programmed inside so you cannot expect DSLR quality in any of the instant cameras out there.
The Fujifilm instax wide 300 is W I D E! Yes, it’s comparatively wide from other Fuji models, the size of the films is double the size of Instax mini. The film size of the camera is huge which means that the camera is huge. Yes, the camera feels kinda huge and it’s kinda uncomfortable to handle. You’ll be getting a strap which you can connect to the camera and use it by hanging around your neck.
Selfie Instant Camera
One of the primary features of this camera is that it comes with an accessory (a lens) which can be attached to the lens of the camera in order to take selfies. As we all know that selfies are a part of our life, so a camera without selfie support would be a waste. This lens is kinda solving that problem, as it increases the focus of the lens to take close up selfies. So if you’re looking for a wide selfie Instant camera, then Fujifilm Instax wide 300 would be the best choice.
This instant camera totally works with batteries, it comes with 4 AA batteries which cannot be recharged, so you’ll have to buy batteries whenever the battery of the camera currently in use drains out. This is one of the worst things which I hate about instant cameras, very rarely these cameras come with a rechargeable battery or a recharge port with it. I don’t think it will be a big deal for them to make up something like that, especially you can read the review of polaroid snap instant digital camera here which can be recharged like you charge your smartphone.
- It got a great lens which can take great pictures without many worries, it’s comparatively better than many other polaroid cameras available in the market.
- The size of the films is double the size of Instax mini. Join 2 credit cards and you can see the approximate size of films which is being used in this camera.
- 4 AA batteries are required which will help you take more photos with great battery backup.
- Inbuilt flash which is ON by default. Bright flashlight makes photos even better.
- Dark mode helps you take photos at dark, light mode helps you take images at the light. You got the button too 🙂
- LED display to show the remaining films available.
- Selfie lens which I’ve explained above.
Focus control is one of the most important feature of this camera, just like you zoom and adjust focus in your DSLR camera, you can control the focus of the lens of this camera. You got options to turn the lens right to make it more focused, basic focus options are available in it to take better photos. This feature is not common, so this might be another reason for you to buy this stuff.
As you know that the polaroid or instant camera are a bit expensive, but in my point of view, it’s totally worth the price you spent provided that you use it socially. You can get the Fujifilm instax wide 300 for the price tag of around $100 (check price). I don’t think $100 is expensive for this kinda camera because it comes with great features. Comparing to the other models, this camera is not cheap and not too pricey, it’s perfect!
If you’re looking for pretty big, focus controlled, the instant camera then this is the one for you. The picture quality, battery backup, basic features etc are simply like the other Fujifilm instax cameras, but the focus control feature, the size of the film will surely make you think! Take your time and think about it.

You cannot simply buy the camera and look at it smiling, you need to have the films loaded in it and you need to protect the camera with a guard (c0ver). Sometimes we can find some combo packs which will help you grab the deal without spending many dimes. So here are some of them,
You probably need the films loaded in it, each film can take one picture so I recommend you to buy the twin film pack which is the best way to save money buying films. This pack which I’ve added below is the perfect one! take a look at it,
Protect your Fujifilm instax wide 300 with a great cover or case (whatever you wanna call), the case usually comes cheaper but saves bigger, because if accidently something happens to your camera, then it will be a loss! 🙂
