  • When I take a picture of the sun it develops as a black spot. Is my INSTAX instant film faulty?

If you take images of a scene that has a very bright element such as the sun, it will overexpose that part of the INSTAX instant film. This will result in a little black mark shown on the film. This is normal, but to avoid this happening, do not shoot directly into the sun or bright light source. If you really want to capture the sun in your image or similar, you can try holding some sunglasses over the lens while shooting as this can help reduce the chance of overexposure.
