Digital Cameras Are The Hottest

Late ’90s and Y2K fashion has been trending for a while, with plenty of people re-discovering old fashion faves or trying out new styles for the first time. The “newest” trend? Digital cameras! Before most cell phones had a camera you could carry in your pocket, digital cameras were the way to capture your best memories. They’re back, bringing that nostalgia and distinct color palette with them. There’s something about digital cameras that filters just can’t recreate!

aespa’s Giselle

aespa member Giselle’s Instagram is the epitome of Gen Z style, filled with photo dumps and a relatively uncurated feed that screams cool in a casual way. She’s also a fan of this Nikon digital camera, an item that tons of “It Girls” are using these days to bring a little spice to an otherwise bland feed. She’s a trendsetter for sure!

Stray Kids’ Seungmin

An idol who’s a fan of an old-school digital camcorder, Stray Kids’ Seungmin used this camera to document his recent trip to Paris. Handheld camcorders like this one might not offer the same fancy zoom tools and digital stabilization of other, newer video cameras, but you can’t beat the nostalgia.

(G)I-DLE’s Yuqi

Another idol who’s a fan of a good digital camcorder—(G)I-DLE’s Yuqi! This upright model somehow holds even more nostalgia, like it comes right out of an early 2000s rom-com. The vintage cameras can be hard to get ahold of, but if you can find one, then you know that the memories you capture will feel even more precious.

NCT’s Jisung

Another Gen Z icon with the Instagram feed to match, it’s no surprise that Jisung of NCT has a digital camera too. They’re more work to carry around and maintain (remember to keep the batteries charged and the memory card empty!), but they add such a distinct look to photos that can’t be recreated.

LE SSERAFIM’s Huh Yunjin

Talk about iconic! Not only does Huh Yunjin of LE SSERAFIM own a digital camera, but it’s in hot pink—a totally 2000s color! The iconic digital camera capture features in a ton of the photos on both her Instagram and the profiles of other LE SSERAFIM members, proving it’s an in-demand item.


Something of a photographer hobbyist, SEVENTEEN’s Wonwoo has a super impressive camera collection! Alongside ultra-modern cameras and vintage film cameras that would make any photographer jealous, he also has this smaller digital camera for more portable use. He’s always prepared to capture the shot!


If Jennie’s on the trend, then you know it’s serious! The BLACKPINK member brought this camera along on a Paris trip, and several photos using it feature on her Instagram. The bright flash and saturated colors make it easy to pick out, along with the slight blur that gives a snap the old-school cool look.
