With the Instax Mini 90 you have some interesting options, including a double exposure mode, allowing you to create artistic photos without the need for post processing image editing as you have to do with a digital camera.
Each film pack contains 10 shots, and the Instax Mini 90 creates instant prints. You can purchase the Instax Mini 90 NEO Classic for a price of about $200 (Compare Prices), while 10-sheet film packs cost about $7 each.

Nikon is now offering a strong thin zoom camera of its own, as the Nikon Coolpix S6800 features a 12X optical zoom lens in a camera that measures 0.9 inches in thickness.
The S6800 is very similar to the Canon ELPH 340 that I mentioned in my blog yesterday. The S6800 has 16MP of resolution in a 1/2.3-inch image sensor, a 3.0-inch LCD, and the ability to shoot 1080p HD video.
The Coolpix S6800 is now available at an MSRP of $219.95 (Compare Prices), and it's offered in black, white, or red camera bodies.

Not many thin cameras can match the 12X optical zoom lens that you'll find in the recently announced Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS.
The ELPH 340 measures only 0.88 inches in thickness, making it a strong thin zoom camera. It also has 16MP of resolution in a 1/2.3-inch image sensor, a 3.0-inch LCD, and full HD video capabilities.
Look for the ELPH 340 to be available now in black, silver, or purple camera bodies at an MSRP of $199.99. (Compare Prices)
