Polaroids, these days, are really Impossible Project, rebranded as Polaroid. They also now have cameras that shoot different format sizes, but you are no longer limited to using vintage cameras. You can do the full-sized Polaroids, but consistency on the film batch-to-batch may not be as good as with Fujifilm. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
That said, if you really truly want oldtimey Polaroid feel and square prints, I would forego Instax and take a chance on the new Polaroid (fka the Impossible Project) cameras. The main issue will be the expense and consistency of the film. Fuji's much better, but the prints are tiny in comparison to full-sized Polaroids, even the square and wide formats. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
If you care more about the quality of the instant film print, then I'd say go look at the current Polaroid cameras (rebranded Impossible Project products, really). - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
I bought it here, but I think mine was limited edition. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
If you're looking for something more in the $100 price range, maybe consider getting a new Polaroid or a Fuji Instax printer for her smartphone. Instant film/polaroid nostalgia can be fun, and this gear is brand new, and relatively low cost. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
I would actually recommend a completely different thing, which may or may not appeal. But maybe an instant film camera? Like a Fuji Instax or Polaroid, rather than a digital camera. The Fuji Mini LiPlay can actually be both a camera and a "printer" for a smartphone user. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
There, there. You can buy a new one for yourself these days. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
You have two choices of instant film cameras. Polaroid cameras https://us.polaroid.com/collections/instant-cameras and Fuji Instax cameras https://instax.com/ You could also use an instant camera that has a built in ZINK printer. https://zink.com/ https://www.amazon.com/stores/ZINKZEROINK/page/FAABB415-3F62-479C-AED2-06FA9CFF4A61. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
Nope. Fuji uses different sizes of film and different, incompatible packs. To use Polaroid instant film, you'd have to get a Polaroid camera. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
Off at a tanget here, but those polaroid cameras are for sale again. I saw them in a photography shop just a couple of days ago. I was surprised. https://us.polaroid.com/collections/instant-cameras. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
