    Here she is PR144-10. I bought the colorburst 50 today and started trawling and found this thread. Thanks for the links to modify was curious if the Instax worked as a possible replacement.
    Fuji Instax is basically Kodak Instant Film; Kodak licensed the technology to Fuji, and Fuji was never sued by Polaroid so kept on making the film for sale outside the US and Canada. For a while, Fuji film packs could be modified to work in a Kodak camera. This is no longer true.

    Anybody know anything about the TIP (team impossible project) or Summit for possible instant film production for discontinued products and would pr10/800gt/ace be manufactured?

    The Kodak Instant Film is completely different from Polaroid so I can't see the IP folks getting involved. It would be nice if Fuji manufactured Fujix film packs that worked in old Kodak Instant Cameras, but I just can't see that happening.

    Kodak DID sell Trimprint Instant Film that allowed you to separate the image from the rest of the picture unit, but this was far different from the Polaroid peel-apart film.

    Just to confirm then with regards to the current production line of Fujifilm instant film there is no direct replacement for there discontinued 800gt/Ace film packs? I emailed TIP so would like to hear what they have to say from a purely positive standpoint it can only be good for them as there seems to be a untapped niche market for either the 800gt or the pr10 just my guesstimate.

    Kodak Instant Film/Fuji Fujix Instant film works completely differently than Polaroid films. The only thing they have in common is the word 'Instant'.

    Fuji COULD make film packs that worked in the old Kodak cameras but I doubt the market is big enough to make it worthwhile. After Kodak lost the Polaroid lawsuit I suspect people just threw away the cameras.

    There is a thread here somewhere that describes a method of modifying a Fuji pack to fit a Kodak camera. It involves trimming off a tab and using a neutral density filter over the sensor among other things.

    Unfortunately, that style Fuji film pack is no longer being made.

    I think they changed the picture unit size and no longer make the old size.
