Are these any good? Do they compare to the Polaroids?
I've heard they're deceptively large and annoyingly amateur in function. They'll take polaroid style instant prints but thats about it.
the cameras and prints are fairly big, a lot bigger than I would want. if you're looking for hand-held size check out the instax mini series.
I like mine.
I would hold off in hopes that The Impossable Project works out okay because they will be producing Polaroid 600 film on the original Polaroid equpment. You can still buy Polaroid film at places like CVS.
fuji instax mini/polaroid mio is a wonderful camera and film.the larger size is bulky and awkward (the instax 200.) the film is wonderful, great colors, not really like polaroid but a different kind of charm (i love it.) really oversaturated color. i buy fuji instax mini film from hong kong on ebay for cheap.
Don't forget that the impossible project will not be producing Polaroid-quality film. They are planning to produce a film with imperfections, that will give different results with every picture, sort of a film Holga.
Instax film (like all Fuji instant film) is manufactured to the quality standard that we are used to, viz: sensitivity, color balance, and saturation very close to the same from picture to picture, pack to pack.
So they are different films (assuming Impossible ever gets off the ground), filling different functions.
Polaroid was not toatally perfect...no two images could ever be the same.
