A 75 CENT DOOR OPENER

FUJI INSTAX

I’m going to be honest with you. I have never understood the appeal of the FujiFilm Instax Mini film and cameras. Yeah, they’re cute and all but I wrote them off as a hipster craze. As proven time and time again in my life, I’m a moron who can miss the point.

On my recent trip to Marrakech, Morocco I was asked if I wanted to take the new Neo Classic Instax Mini 90 camera along for the ride. Full disclosure, I was in Morocco to shoot for Fuji with their new XT1 camera. Instax is a completely different division from the digital camera side of Fuji that I have worked with. This is not a paid endorsement or anything like that. This is a completely independent take on something that happens to fall under the FujiFilm name. My job was to shoot with the XT1. The Instax was sort of an after thought that I could take or leave. Cool? Cool.

Photography News // Five Reasons Why We Need to Keep Medium and Large Format Instant Film Alive

I’ve been experimenting this past week since it was #roidweek: I was playing around with my Polaroid 210 Land Camera and Fujfilm 100C and 3000B Instant film. On a whim, I took photos of friends, co-workers, people I just met at a bar, and landscapes during the rain. And with each pull of the 3 x 4 inch film through the rollers and enduring the waiting process of anywhere from 15 seconds to 2 minutes followed by the final reveal, I saw faces light up in people who were never even into the arts.

And though digital photography does give us something essential, we need to understand that photography is also about falling in love and that sentimentality coupled with acceptance of all formats and others needs to come first. After this past week, I feel that we need to keep parts of us as a photographic community as a whole alive.

Here are five reasons why we need to save Medium Format and Large Format Instant film.
