Digital cameras and smartphones created an excess of images. We take so many, not really thinking about the light or the pose. We hope that, among 100 shots, adding some filters, one at least will be ok. But there is something nostalgic in seeing a picture that slowly develops in front of you, with dark colors that come into focus.
Despite all the technology, the magic of creating something tangible and unique to share is still strong and instant film can add the fun of the analog charm to the digital world.
Fujifilm Instax Mini
Currently one of the best and most used instant film is the Fujifilm Instax Mini, with the size of a credit card (62mm x 46mm) at the portfolio fit and the classic white border/Polaroid style. Fast, precise and comfortable, each cartridge contains 10 photos with fine grain and bright colors (ISO 800), and an accelerated development thanks to a system that speeds the result.
This instant film is now compatible with all new instant camera on the market, such as Fuji Instax or Lomo Instant, the instant camera I’ve got to use them.
The instant photo is a joyful experience: try it!
