That's why the cross between old and new presented by the Instax Mini 9 is perfect for your personality.

Gemini: XP-Pen Artist 16 Pro 15.6 Drawing Tablet
As someone who is born under the guidance of The Twins, you love to be both methodical and spontaneous. But your true love? Art. Captivated by creating works that speak to both the body and the soul, a drawing tablet like the XP-Pen Artist 16 Pro 15.6 provides you with a tool that helps express your voice.
Cancer: JBL Everest Elite 750NC
People often claim that being emotional is a fault, but you certainly prove them wrong. Cancers may be sentimental but because of your empathy, people are quick to trust and pledge their loyalty to you. Despite this, those born under this sign are still not the social butterflies people expect you to be. You are deeply in touch with your individuality and your own introspection, so headphones like the JBL Everest Elite 750NC helps you stay grounded and have time with your own thoughts when you're not out taking care of your loved ones.
Leo: Huawei P30 Pro
It's no secret that Leos are trendy and oozing with confidence. And nothing satisfies bold babes like you than a gadget that can keep up with how 'extra' you can be. That's why the much-coveted Huawei P30 Pro with its 50x zoom lens function is just right up your alley. Boasting features that beat out its competitors, causing buzz for both tech-geeks and lifestyle enthusiasts alike, it fits the Leo's lifestyle to a T.
Virgo: Apple MacBook
People often turn to you for your practicality and unparalleled analytical skills. And because methodologic planning is your greatest skill when it comes to solving issues, the state of the tools that help you in data gathering significantly ups the calibre of your thinking process. This is why the latest MacBook is your best bet. With it running in the snappiest Intel Core processors, Turbo Processing amped to 3.6 GHz, and its attractive thin design that's easy for travel, this device moves just as quick as you and will undoubtedly be the Watson to your Sherlock.
Libra: Sony XB41 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker
One of the things that people often get wrong about you is that you actually love close-knit groups and are not an extrovert at all. Still, that doesn't mean you're not the life of any social gathering as you know how to establish great rapport no matter what kind of personality you come across with. Just like music, you know how to make people come together, making something like the Sony XB41 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker the perfect contraption to aid you in setting the mood and sparking up conversations.
Scorpio: Kindle Paperwhite
Scorpios like you are known for loving solitude and peace, with your homes often the symbol of your sanctuary. You find bliss in serene moments and being alone with your thoughts, with a good book in hand. However, in today's world where everything is fast-moving, you find it hard to secure a safe space. So having your own mini-library in the form of the Kindle Paperwhite no matter where you go gives you the escape you need.
Sagittarius: GoPro Hero7 Black
As the one who dons the daredevil crown, you love everything that has to do with adrenaline and hair-raising excitement. You're a patron of adventure sports and travels. So having a trusty camera like the GoPro Hero7 Black to record your wildest affairs is without a doubt your gadget match.
Capricorn: Casio G-SHOCK GA-2000
"Discipline is key," as you would say and it shows when your ambitious streak is at its peak. You have an innate sense of independence and leadership, making you a reliable colleague, friend and even loved one. It also means that you value time, harbouring it as your greatest ally in order to set all your roles and tasks with great efficiency and effectiveness. Casio's G-SHOCK GA-2000 matches you just right, with its analogue-digital Carbon Core Guard structure that mirrors your tough accord and performance to outmatch greatness.
Aquarius: Olympus Tough TG-5 Waterproof Camera
Following the element that significantly represents your sign, you can both be as calm as the sea or as electrifying as a raging river depending on your mood. You love trips by the beach as they provide the right balance between earth and water, leaving you feeling both grounded and thrilled. With this, you need a gadget like the Olympus TG-5 Waterproof Camera that can keep up with whichever side you are showing, capturing both serenity and adventure if need be.
Pisces: Leica M10-D
Known as the quirkiest and most creative of the bunch, your artistic choices — whether in fashion, beauty, or any other art form — may not be everyone's cup of tea but they can't deny that your taste is impeccable. Just like the Leica M10-D, with its mix of "digital body, analogue soul", your eccentricities may be overwhelming and seem complex at first, but they eventually evoke a certain warmth and emotion that captivates everyone who gets to know you.
