    I have three words for this camera, and they are eccoed by my wife (a first I might add): "I want one"

    My kids have Mini 50s' and love them to bits. And I can understand why. They want to make scrap books and diaries (girls). And the instax system fits the bill nicely. And at social gatherings they get to give away prints. Much like I do with my Polaroids at parties. Much to the pleasure of friends and family. Even more so nowadays, when hardly anybody ever sees a print if it is not on a wall at a gallery.

    Can you get Instax film locally? And if, even the Mini version?

    While the Instax cameras are out of my budget, if they did a similar re-design in the wide format I'd be seriously tempted.

    There are 5+ shops that carry Instax in my local area, FWIW. I've seen it at major big-box stores on down to the little mom-n-pop used photo stores in the neighborhood.

    I pretty much only see Mini versions in stock. Local shops don't carry wide, which is the one I prefer.

    they need to make some instax (wide) b&w film! and while the last design of the instax camera looked like globular leftovers from a sperm bank, I think the whole new 'vintage' thing is really gimmicky and in my opinion, a little tacky. but that's just my opinion and doesn't seem to agree with the rest of popculture today that insists that everything must look 'vintage'

    If they want 'vintage' it would have to have full manual control of exposure. Even if it only has a 3 element f8 lens give us user selectable shutter speeds and aperture control. That with the instax wide format would be true retro and you could actually sell some to people who care.

    Oh yeah, what Alex said too, B&W
