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.

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…]
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…]
I am still super bummed about Fujifilm’s decision to stop production of FP-100C packfilm. It’s the last peel-apart instant film on the market. Once it is gone, an entire category of instant film cameras become obsolete. However, The Impossible Project, which saved Polaroid 600 instant film, is trying to save peel-apart packfilm as well.

It’s a sad day folks. As I have waded back into film photography over the past year, there is one film that I’ve really grown attached to: Fujifilm’s FP-100C.
Today, however, Fujifilm announced the end of production for FP-100C. It is the last peel-apart film on the market. As such, it was the only film available for many Polaroid Land Cameras and medium format backs since Polaroid has long ago stopped making peel apart film. [Read more…]
