Unlike some older Instax cameras, the Mini 40 is also now fully automatic. If you're looking for a fun, easy-to-use instant camera that's stylish to boot, this is an excellent choice.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 is a more grown-up alternative to the Mini 11. Automatic exposure and a variable-speed shutter return take a lot of the uncertainty out of using instant film. An adjustable lens barrel adds the extra versatility of close-up shooting – without the need for easily lost attachments.

Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
The Mini 40 is an entry-level instant film camera with only two settings and two buttons. What sets this camera apart is its vintage film camera look, complete with a plastic faux leather body and metallic-looking plastic rails. The camera's all-plastic housing makes it very light and easy to take anywhere.
