    Fuji Instax camera?

    I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask, but here goes. Not long ago, I found a Fuji Instax 100 on sale in a bargain bin for $20. Wanting to play with, I bought it and some expired film they had next to it. If you're not familiar with this camera, it's sort of a Fuji competition for Polaroid. After buying this camera, it occured to me that Fuji may not make film for it anymore. I've tried looking on Fuji's site, but they don't seem to make any mention of instant cameras. Does anyone know if I can still get film for it?

    I'm not sure about the camera or what kind of film it takes. But, I buy Fuji instant color film all the time for use with my 4x5. The type I buy requires a Poloroid 550 holder; I buy it from Calumet.

    The Instax 100 was followed by the Instax 200 and I think there's a professional model as well. The film is certainly still being made and is available here in the UK so I would have thought it was available in the states. If not I guess you could order it from the Uk on line. www.silverprint.co.uk have it and so do many others. There is also a mini version as there is a line of Fuji instant cameras which give very small prints. Neither of these films are the same as that referred to by roteague.

    Fuji Instax

    I think the problem is that Fuji doesn't sell Instax products in the U.S.
    The film is available here in Canada, as are the cameras.

    There is always Instax film for sale on ebay.

    I just checked, and Henry's, a Canadian mail-order photo dealer that ships to the US, has the film. Search on "instax" to find it. I'm in the US so I don't buy from Henry's much, but I did buy something from them once. Aside from slow shipping, I had no problems.
