The new Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 makes it easy for any on to click a retro-style photo. This new-age instant camera removes the concept of manual exposure adjustments and replaces them with auto-exposure. And that's how you can trust kids or inexperienced folks to click photos without worrying about the exposure much. As with any electronics like smartphones and TVs, your deed is not done simply by buying the device. To get the most of this instant camera, you will need to invest in some accessories to add value (and a bit of fun) to the camera.
Fujifilm's case for the Instax Mini 11 is perhaps a safe bet because it's an in-house case. Here, you do not have to worry about the fit or the cuttings.

Like most Instax Mini cases, you won't have to take the camera out of the bag when you have to capture a photo. You simply lift the lid, clear the lens of any obstruction and click.
It's made of faux leather, which ensures a flexible and soft case. It comes with a shoulder strap, using which you can hang around the camera around your neck when not in use.
The Fujifilm Instax 11 case comes in an array of pastel colors and goes incredibly well with the original colors of the Mini 11.

Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film packets are the ones for you if you want to experiment with different film types. These films come in a pack of four, with the monochrome one being the unique one in the group. For less than $40, you also get your hands on a twin pack of classic film packs. Each film measures around 3.5 x 2.3 inches.
Apart from giving a fun twist, these photo packs also make great gifts, especially for young children.
However, when it comes to the monochrome film pack, you have to be especially careful with the background, and ambient colors as photos tend to appear washed out when taken in dark environments.
