The Mini 90 continues a very popular line of instant film cameras from Fuji using Instax Mini film; however, the Mini 90 separates itself with the retro-styling that has won over crowds in Fuji’s X-Series digital cameras.

Red Giant recently launched ‘Tempo,’ which is a clever short film that highlights what’s possible with its video software suites.
You’ll no longer be able to develop a roll of Kodachrome, which ceased production in 2009. The last developer in world with chemicals to develop the iconic film will run out of those chemicals . . . today.
Check out the great video below that gives you a little taste of Kodachrome history. [Read more…]
Polaroid instant cameras are finally back in town. The new Polaroid PIC-300 is the first instant camera to be introduced since the old Polaroid died and was born anew (recall, however, that we were teased with the Polaroid PIC-1000 mockups back at CES 2010). The Polaroid PIC-300 is a consumer-oriented camera that uses the aptly-named Polaroid 300 Instant Film. However, all this comes at a price.
While the camera will only set you back about $90, the film will suck you dry at $10 for a 10-pack. That’s $1 per exposure folks.
Ah, yes, now I recall why Polaroid died.
The Polaroid 300 format is also smaller than the traditional Polaroid sizes from back in the day. Instead, you get Fuji Instax Mini sizes – about the same size print as a business card.
No doubt that there’s a fun factor to the new Polaroid PIC-300; however, you’ll have to be committed to your nostalgic ideals to jump on this bandwagon. The Polaroid PIC-300 gives new meaning to the expression “make every frame count.”
Updated: It’s also available from Amazon.com here.
