Looks like used ones are available for $15. Film costs nearly $2 a piece though, ouch.

Mediocre reviews.

Has been posted on SD by staffer for same price from same seller previously to 10TU reception. This round seems to have had an insta-Popular +4TU boost.
No digital saving per last thread, but product description lists scanning as a feature...can anyone explain/clarify?

$2 a film is pricey, instax is about $1 per film. Does anyone know if there are much differences between this and the instax? If not I'll probably get the instax printer that can connect to your phone

How does this compare to the other line of instant film cameras? My girlfriend wants one for Christmas.

Imagine carrying this thing around with you. Wow is it bulky.

Maybe I'll get this and buy those old brick looking "car phone" and drive around with them in a 1980 Cadillac

Yes, this uses "Polaroid" film, so much bigger prints than the Instax ones.

Probably not a good idea to get into this unless you're willing to accept the quirks. A shot will run you about $1.75+. This camera sometimes comes with the charm of uneven print development, off exposures, and/or aberrations in the print. My research finds that some ppl encounter problems with the battery. Some claim that it loses its charge after a single day. An image will take 20-30 minutes to develop. I believe this camera was $99(?) when it came out. I suspect the reason for the price drop is the problematic battery.

This vs Fuji? Fuji seems to be more reliable when it comes to exposure. This camera spits out a square image, while Fuji has a wide ratio. I believe Polaroid/Impossible has the instant square format trademarked (don't quote me on that). Fuji instant also develops faster. Fuji is completely automatic. This camera is fully automatic too, but you can connect it to an app that allows you additional features that Fuji doesn't have, such as manual exposure control, double exposure, light painting, remote control, etc.

That said, I'm in! Wink

Most comparable format for instax would be the InstaxWide which doesn't get enough love from Fuji. The InstaxSquare is a bit smaller than the polaroids.
I have an Impossible Film 600 which is a refurbished old school Polaroid that they modded because these guys can't get the dam chemistry right for their film. This camera that B&H is selling is branded Impossible Film which is partly why it's being liquidated. They have since rebranded under the Polaroid brand after obtaining the rights to the Polaroid name.
As far as quality of the film, Fuji has it down. The old Impossible Film and newer Polaroid branded film are not consistant with their exposures and at $2 a pop it's not acceptable IMO.
