(unknown member): Polaroid will NEVER get a single dime of my vote for this action against Fujifilm. You failed as a company and now are basically trying to extort, how fricken embarrassing you are. I hope Fujifilm indeed wins this judgement and this move turns out to be yet another greed driven bumble of a decision for Polaroid.

No wonder ! when money smells good !

Fujica: We will see what happens.
Many people here think that INSTAX is something 'new'.
Not knowing that Instax Mini and mini film already exist since 1998.

It dates back to analog, however smart marketing attracted the young who never saw instant film. Therewith Instax is a popular format right now.

The new square format may look much like polaroid film, but the so called patent holder never filed any complaints against the former 'Impossible Project', which directly infringed all previous Polaroid patents.

The impossible project only recently was acquired by the 'patent' holder.

In Japan, Fujifilm introduced their own line of instant photographic products in 1981 starting with the Fotorama line of cameras. The name Fotorama came from photograph and panorama, as the film was a wide format compared to the square Polaroid SX-70/600 films. These Integral films developed similar to Kodak's with the back layer first. Polaroid also has a separate suit with Fujifilm and their instant film patents in Japan. When Kodak lost, Fujifilm was able to work with Polaroid to allow their cameras and films to remain in the market, provided that they have a technology sharing agreement. Polaroid was interested in branching out to magnetic media in the boom of the videotape era and had acquired a company called MagMedia Ltd. Fujifilm has a long history in magnetic media dating to the mid-1950s. This led to Polaroid having access to Fujifilm's extensive electronic, video tape and floppy disc magnetic products. This allowed Fujifilm access to Polaroid's film technology.

Just remember the Kodak Film vs Polaroid in the 70s:

"Polaroid filed suit against Eastman Kodak in April 1976 for the infringement of ten patents held by Edwin Land and others on his development team relating to instant photography. In September 1985, the United States District Court of Massachusetts ruled that seven patents were valid and infringed, two were invalid but infringed, and one was valid but not infringed by Kodak. Kodak appealed but was denied and an injunction prohibiting production of their instant film and cameras was put into effect. Kodak's appeal to the Supreme Court was denied a few months later, and in January 1986, Kodak announced it would no longer be producing their instant line of products. In 1991, Polaroid was awarded $925 million in damages from Kodak." (Wikipedia).

An inexpensive lens vs the Nikkor AF-S 10-24mm DX ED ?

It has VR that the Nikkor AF-S 10-24mm DX ED doesn't; and lighter but no weather sealing.
