    Two completely different technologies. The B&W peel apart is based on Polaroid technology; the integral picture unit Instax is based on Kodak Instant Film technology.

    The one thing I take away from this is I'm really glad to hear that IP is committed to improving their product. They've come a long way but obviously still a lot of room to improve. The test shots they posted from the new 600 film do show a lot better colour than the old stuff.

However as apparently they couldn't make a profit from their excellent Neopan 400 35mm film, I can't see them introducing a B & W film in instax formats. So I don't think the Impossible Project have anything to fear.
    Yeah, I think Fuji makes more money with their FP series because they are the only ones doing it and the Instax arent selling as much. At least they released a new mini cam. Maybe that'll spark some interest.

    Instax has to be selling waaaay more than the FP film. You can find Instax film in stores all over China. It is EVERYWHERE. It is almost like the old days in that you can just pop into a store and grab some film on the fly.

    Even in the camera malls there are maybe one or two stores with a few boxes of FP film in stock. It's not even close.

    I'd be lucky to find any FP in local stores here. I've actually seen them in two local photo speciality stores. One is pretty much film gear only (used mostly). I have seen some mini Instax in stores like Target, but I think might have stopped carrying it. So I don't thik they are selling that well in store fronts. I think the more hardcore shooters order online.

    Here in Germany and in Poland you can find tons of Instax mini films and cameras in "Saturn" store and in some other shops as well. Other instant films - only fotoimpex.

    Have not been at Saturn lately, so I don't know.. Other than that Instax film is hard to find for me. And where it is offered it keeps sitting on the shelves.

    Never ever saw anybody usiing Instax cameras.

    Not true, at least here in Poland. Finding fp100c is not a big problem. I've seen some Impossible Project films, too - but "Impossible Pricing" would be a better name.

    Last time I was in Saturn in Zlote Tarasy couple of months ago in Warsaw they had a lot of Fuji Instax mini films and cameras, but of course on allegro you can find everything. I agree about prices of Impossible films, but that is as it is .

    Hope I don't sound stupid for asking this but…Does this film need to be shielded from light when it is ejected from the camera like the others did?
