The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 is the follow-up to the incredibly popular Instax Mini 8. The overall size, shape and look of the Mini 9 closely resemble the Mini 8; however, there are a couple additional features that make the Mini 9 a more user-friendly camera than the Mini 8 out of the box.

Check out our latest Will Work for Film T-Shirt design for your analog roots. It’s shown above in dark heather gray, which is my personal favor color and fabric blend. It’s nice and thin for staying cool in the summer. These run a bit small, so if you are trying to decide between one size or another, go bigger.
There is also a color version of the Will Work for Film t-shirt, which gives you some brighter options if neutral colors just aren’t your thing. These are available in both men and women sizes.
Fuji’s Instax series has been incredibly popular since it was brought back to life in the US back in 2010. Just recently, Fujifilm updated the Mini 8 by launching the Mini 9 – both of which feature the popular credit card-sized prints. Fuji previously teased us with the tidbit that it was going to give us a square format in the Instax line and now it’s here – the Instax Square SQ10. [Read more…]
According to Lomography anyway, today April 12, 2017 is the fifth annual film photography day in Lomography Gallery and Embassy Stores around the world. If you’re in NYC, there’s a Sacred NYC Tattoo Party Pop-up happening at the Lomography Gallery Store on 8th Street.
If you’re not near a Lomography Gallery or Embassy Store, it’s still a good excuse to dust off your film camera and shoot a couple rolls or sheets. [Read more…]
Fuji’s new Instax mini Monochrome file is now shipping from Amazon. It’s the same Instax mini format that we’ve grown to love for the Instax Mini 8 and Mini 70, among others. As with other Instax mini film, it’s not exactly cheap. You get 10 exposures for around $15. But, hey, now we’ve got some black and white action for our instant cameras again.
I’m not sure if the going rate will remain at $15; however, you can still pre-order the film from B&H (not shipping just yet) for $9.99.
B&H has the discontinued Fujifilm FP-100c peel-apart instant film in stock for $19.99. This film had previously spiked upwards of $30 per pack after the announcement of its discontinuation earlier this year. B&H says it has limited stock of the film, which prior to the discontinuation sold for around $11 per pack.
After the final run of film is out of stock, expect remaining supplies to skyrocket in price (the previously-discontinued FP-3000B goes for $40 or more now). Check out FP-100c film here at B&H Photo while it lasts.
I make my living photographing things and people that move. I do that with a Nikon camera in my hands. Currently my D810 and D5 bodies take 95% of those frames. I am very OCD when it comes to details of the scene, the lighting and how my subject fits within that rectangle.
However, for the past eight years, sitting quietly in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator tucked away in a thick plastic bag has resided 45 exposures of old (and expired), Polaroid Type55 PN black and white 4X5 film. A tool that is anything but perfect. Using such a tool takes a substantial element of control out of my hands which in turn takes me far out of my comfort zone. [Read more…]
