    Fuji Instax

    I am a huge Polaroid fan. I shoot the integral and pack films. My stock of 600 film is running low but I still can get it. I was wondering what you thought about the Fuji Instax system. How does it compare to the Polaroid 600. Thanks

    I got an Intstax Mini to play around with. The print size is small (a little bigger than a business card) so it is hard to evaluate image quality. Color saturation is good, the images are nice and rich. It seems like the image comes up a little more slowly than the 600 films.

    This camera is great fun at parties. People crowd around to get their pictures taken.

    Glad to hear you like it! I was looking into the regular instax as I thought the mini would be way to small.

    Another problem with the mini is that the cameras and film are not distributed in the US, so you have to buy them off Ebay. I think the larger instax is available from a few camera stores here.

    The mini is indeed small, but fun.

    I've seen it in New York at the new Lomography shop. I would assume you could find it on their website at www.lomography.com. The color looked pretty good.

    The colour is good, but I am disappointed with the camera (I have an instax 100) - that said my reference is a polaroid spectra pro and there isn't an equivalent camera made by fuji so it isn't really a fair comparison...

    My same feeling as David. The film is fine - I hate the camera.

    The camera is crap. It's too bad they don't make it in 600 size. Fear not though, there is a plan to make more polaroid like packfilm again as you've probably heard.

    Yes, but at what cost?
