    It ain't Kodak but....

    ...I bought my 11 year old son a Fujifilm Instax camera today and 10 "rolls" of film. All this for his birthday. Another film shooter in the family. He loves it and thinks it is way better than a digital camera.

    Nice! Instax (or polaroid/impossible) is fun anyway. Get'm hooked and then bring on the good stuff!

    I have to admit, it is a real blast watching the film develop right in front of your eyes. I really wish Fujifilm made a serious instax camera. I'd buy it for myself real quick. The film is serious (gorgeous colors) but the cameras are toys.

    Wow...I never heard of this camera until your post. Very interesting. I dont know much about Fuji's peel apart film. From what little I have read, it has been discontinued a lot. Down to one sole type of film?

    Quite a cool looking camera! There's even one for sale here in Shanghai. Amazing.

    There are still 2 types left; the color FP-100C and the black-and-white FP-3000B. They discontinued the 4x5 versions, but the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 versions are still in production.

    Aside from the FP-1, there are a few other cameras that deliver the same manual controls for instant prints. They are the Konica Instant Press and the Polaroid models from 180-195.

    Who knew that instant photography was still alive and kicking
    My son had a digital until he broke it, which goes to say a lot about the digital he had.. (Canon Powershot A560 I think)...
    He was 2 when I paid $5.00 for it, and he later picked out a Pentax Espio 738... Which he loves to us.. ($5.00 again for it)..

    I also gave him a Herco Imperial 620 snapshot camera, which he also seems to really like the box design (and he knows that he has to wind the film on from frame to frame and line up the numbers in the red window)..
    Plus I also gave him a Kodak Brownie Starflash 127 camera...

    My wife has a Fuji Instax Mini 50s which I bought her and she loves it. Says the film is a little pricey for it (not really in my eyes) but she really likes the "instant" photography...

    The film and lenses with that camera are very sharp! Really do like using it.. Scans well for enlargements!

    APS, 35mm, 120, 4x5 and a Deardorff & Sons 4x5 Special under restoration.

    I don't care the format, as long as it's film!

    Bronica Polaroid back

    These two films work very well in the Polaroid back made for the Bronica SQ series although the image size is limited to 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (6 x 6). I can scan the FP-100C prints, post-process and print them as 8 x 8 in. with surprisingly good results.
