    All these films above are diffusion materials. This causes the reduced resolution and sharpness.

    The Land List is a pretty exhaustive reference on which cameras use which format. The Type 100 pack film cameras will take the Fuji packs.

    But a new interest in instant film photography, yes, absolutely.
    Growth rates of 20-25% p.a. both for Instax film and Impossible Project (CEO Kaps said in an interview).

    As instant film was the film type declared to be dead already in 2008 by all "experts", the impressive resurgence of instant film can give us some hope for conventional film, too.
    But the film manufacturers, the film distributors (Freestyle, ars-imago, ag-photographic, silverprint, Fotoimpex, Maco etc.), the labs and we film enthusiasts have to do much more in marketing for film to achieve such a real film resurgence.
    Impossible and Fuji have been successful because they started massive campaigns for instant film. And they did this quite clever.

    My experiences in Germany have been quite different. Much better situation there than in most other countries I've been (especially much better compared to the US and other European countries).

    You are right, Germany is still in a very good position concerning local film availability in general, even in small places. (Though not for Instax.) It is getting worse here too though.

    But I have never ever seen anybody with an Instax camera. Actually I only once saw somebody with a film camera at all this year.
    An experience which has to be taken into account to make the picture.
