    The film has better color rendering (IMHO), is sharper, scans better, lasts longer on the shelf (after expiration). The downside is that the only camera is pretty crappy compared with an SX-70.

    While I haven't used either the Instax or the Instax Mini formats, I did happen to see an Instax 200 camera in a local store a few months ago. The camera itself was much larger than I expected - not what I had in mind as a suitable portable instant camera, personally, so just something to be aware of. I'm guessing the Instax Mini cameras would be much more compact.

    (I believe Zoey Deschanel's character in the recent movie "Yes Man" was using an Instax 200, if you want to see one in action and don't mind Jim Carrey.)
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Luckily it still seems to be available in Japan. I've seen Polaroid films of all types and sizes at the big stores like Yodobashi camera, and 600 is still available at smaller camera shops.

    I have no idea if it will be discontinued in Japan anytime in the near future, but I hope not.

    The plants that made Polaroid films worldwide have been closed and dismantled for some time now. All polaroid film you find is remaining stock. It is all discontinued.

    The Impossible Project is by no means a done deal. They've got some technical challenges ahead of them. See a recent discussion by Photo Engineer and others in the photo chemistry forum.

    I hope you're right, but they have a difficult task to perform.
