Reviewing Instax Mini Printers!

Hey everyone!

Today, we are going to talk about a topic you might be surprised about: instant film printers!

Although we love our instant film cameras (whether mass-produced or specially modified), instant film printers are actually useful! It can be used to print out memories not captured on instant film, and not only that, you can print as many copies as you want, which is great for giving gifts! Furthermore, some instant film printers double up as functioning cameras, meaning they are able to capture and shoot film instantly! Quite often, these devices will also allow the photo to be edited (e.g. by adding filters, funky borders and stickers). 

We wish to highlight out that we are not sponsored by Fujifilm or any of these brands whose products we are reviewing today.

Trying out a Modified Instant Wide Back for Mamiya Press Lens!

Hey everyone!

We recently got our hands on a modified Instant Wide film back made for Mamiya Universal Press (MUP) lens! Using a Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 camera, the camera modifier had hacked out the lens and replaced it with a 3D-printed adapter for MUP lenses. We had a somewhat unpleasant experience with a previous camera modifier who was unable to replicate the same setup without encountering issues such as light leaks, and naturally, we were cautiously optimistic about this modified camera.

Comparing Instax Square Cameras!

Hey everyone!

Ever since Fujifilm announced the Instax Square film in April 2017, this increasingly popular medium has been making headway into mainstream usage. When Fujifilm announced the Instax SQUARE SQ10, many users were left scratching their heads at its apparent “digital-analogue” nature. Lomography quickly pounced upon the occasion and announced the Lomo’Instant Square, a fully analogue camera to be used with the Instax Square film. Not to be left behind, Fujifim announced the Instax SQUARE SQ6 in May 2018, which returned to its roots with a fully analogue camera to boot.
