    I sell them at my shop--people seem to love them. I really want one for myself. The results look great and the camera has a surprising number of features for what it is. I love Polaroid as much as the next person, but with a finite amount of film out there (currently anyway) the Fuji seems to be a great option--and not too pricey for the film. Just over a buck a shot is kind of amazing if you consider what goes into making the stuff!

    it's great, I love it, it's as much fun as the old polaroids. image quality and colours are even better than polaroid. the rest is pretty much alike. I wish fuji would make a better camera, a folder like the sx70. that would be gorgeous. in any case: get one and have instant fun at reasonable prices.

    kind regards

    I just ordered a used Instax 200 myself. From what I can tell, it's nearly the same camera, only it lacks a close-up filter. I just need to find a good source for the film.

    Regarding Polaroid, I'm hopeful that The Impossible Project can improve their films to the point where they are more widely marketable, which would lead to larger production runs and lower costs.
