On article Leica-branded instant camera rumored to launch soon (43 comments in total)

Notwithstanding I have a Fuji Instax mini 90 I want one as my own Christmas present. The design is gorgeous. Something different when compared to other cameras that use Instax mini film. Perhaps a little expensive for a rebranded Fuji Instax but you only live once.

GuitarCamera Man: Exciting news, they have given me more incentive to buy an instax camera or Lomography Instant camera.

The Instax mini 90 is very good and Lomography have a kickstarter campaign running for a Lomo Instant Automat.

Attila Orhan: Are those Fuji cameras printing every shot taken? I'm looking for an instant camera for just printing the selected shots, not every shot taken. Is there such an instant camera on the market?

Fuji Instax cameras are analog. Polaroid has digital instant cameras that prints on ZINK (Zero INK) paper. If you just want to print selected shots, the Polaroid Z2300 is the available option. Other option: use smartphone, print selected picture on a printer. Polaroid has the Zip, Fuji the Instax Share. There are also other manufacturers of portable printers (Canon, LG, ...).

Calvin Chann: I've never seen it as cheap as you say it is. Retail is more like $10 per pack of 10.

I have to buy 5 double packs of instax mini films and then it costs 90 €. So it is 15 € for 1 double pack of 20 pictures. But buying just 1 pack of 10 pictures price is 11 €. It is at a well known shop in Antwerp.

vscd: Fuji rocks. Fuji Acros is one of the best b/w films available today. Velvia and Provia still rock and the retrowave is still coming up, I think. @Fuji: PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING FILMROLLS! Please.

Instax goes strong. Last year around this time there was.a shortage of Instax (mini) film. Fuji has build a new factory for production of these films early this year.

The specifications look good. However I would like to see some samples of a production camera by a user. I participated last year in the Kickstarter campain for the LOMO'INSTANT that uses the Fuji Instax mini film. I still regret it. A lot of vignetting, flash pictures bad, diffcult to use., etc. I hope they have it right for the Wide camera.

I could not resist, I pre-ordered one. Just love those Instax mini's.

My first digital was a Kodak DC 130 Blueberry, it matched my iMac. After 2 or 3 years its viewfinder broke. After that I rediscovered film photography but also have a number of digicams like a Leica M8 and Fuji X10. However they do not get much use. I still prefer film. But I must admit I use more Fuji film than Kodak for general use. On certain occasions however I find Portra film the best color film available, I would miss it.
I'm also a big fan of instant photography. But what became of Polaroid? They came back with classic instant. Just a rebranded Fuji Instax mini 7s and rebranded Instax mini film, all made by Fuji.
What about Kodak printers? Perhaps they are available in the USA but I have not seen one in my country. It is all Canon, HP and Epson.

snegron: Looks like big corporations won at last; film is dead. Now we have no choice but to use digital 100% of the time. I'm sure the higher ups at Kodak knew this way in advance and more than likely had some back door deals with other investors. Thanks a lot Kodak.

Film is certainly not dead. Who could have thought that after 110 film was gone in 2009 it is back in 2012 in B&W and color at the Lomography company. I wonder who is making the new 110 film. A fact is that prices of used Pentax 110 SLR's are reaching an incredible height on auction sites. I still have my complete set. The only question is who can develop these 110 films...
