We’ve been sad this last year as we’ve watched Polaroid film disappear from the store shelves and when it has reappeared it has been ridiculously expensive. We currently only have one pack of film left so I started to look into alternatives. For Christmas this year I got Paul two new instant cameras.
The first was a vintage Polaroid 600 SE that is clunky and heavy but uses Fuji instant film and takes really really stunning pictures. Jonathan Canlas was really kind and answered a lot of my questions about this so I knew which one to get. (Paul took his Film is Not Dead Workshop in 2008.) So far we’ve only used the FUJIFILM FP-100B with it.
The second was the Fujifilm INSTAX MINI which is a darling little camera that takes credit card sized photos. I had heard good things about this camera but was surprised when I really really loved using it.
