Instax 1:1 (square format) announced

http://www.fujifilm.com/news/n160920_01.html

Love it. I wonder if Leica knew about this one coming right after their announcement of Sofort.

I was thinking about getting the SP-2 but looks like I'll wait for a 1:1 compatible camera/printer to come out.

With the GFX announcement, I say Fuji is on fire!

Is it...Polaroid Rebooted?

I hope so.

Interesting ... much more interesting than the Leica Instax camera

Cool but the image is still pretty small.

Current Instax Mini is 62mm by 46mm

The new square one is 62mm by 62mm.

I'm still in though!

Spring 2017? This gives plenty of time for Lomography to make a 1x1 compatible camera.

Even more evidence that Fuji was *totally* right in their assessment that the market doesn't need FP-100C due to low demand

Neat! Now the MiNT TLR instant camera can be revised for the new film and have the proper format. ;-)

This is interesting. I wish it was 76mm X 76mm like IP film, but 62mm X 62mm ain't bad. Of course if the put the film in a junk camera, like the current Instax stuff, I may stay on the sidelines.

curious to see if anyone will dive into adapters to run instax in SX-70. I'm thinking we've got some competition between fuji and impossible. Lets just hope fuji doesn't take over the market then kill it years later.

Screw this.

And screw Fuji(Film when it suits us). I'll stick to supporting Impossible, who at least continue to innovate with their emulsions and have a love for instant photography AS WELL as da filthy lucre.

There. I said it.

Very Interesting... As others have mentioned, if the price is reasonable count me in as well. I absolutely LOVE polaroid and square format as well. (I currenty own an SLR680) I just don't love anything about the price.

Great format! Let's just hope the new monochrome emulsion will be offered in this format as well. Id really like an Instax back for the SLX!

hmm. An Instax film back for my SWC would be darn cool. As would an Impossible back as well. I wonder if it could be done...

It's kinda lame how they trying to sell it as artistic and trying to support photographers but are willing to kill an entire format.

Would prefer that they kept 100c alive and bring back 3000b.

Or

Make it the same exact size as the impossible film to work in all the Polaroids.

From the Fuji datasheets: resolving power:

FP100C 15 lines/mm
Instax: 10 lines/mm

Even FP100C isn't vry great, but compared to Instax it is visibly better. And there are a lot of decent cameras available compared to a couple of plastic lens things with something that has to pass for a viewfinder.

I could understand the need to go to Instax because of chemistry or production reasons. But not keeping it compatible is just silly. (I can understand it, they earn much more if you buy an Instax camera than if you buy film and put it in another camera)

Methinks it would be very tough to achieve a Hassy back for this. Essentially you would hack an instax camera, remove the lens assembly and mate it to the back of the hassy. The biggest problem is that the hassy backs film plane is something like 2mm recessed and that gives you little room to work.

Rollei TLRs would be even harder because the film plane is within the body.

Not sure what other 6x6 cameras have it better in this situation.

New batch of prints arrived today so I've put them together to test the fit. I've got a bit of adjustment to do to the right side to match the curve of the body but otherwise I'm happy with it. by Steve Lloyd, on Flickr

Thanks. I'm using the adapter lens from a Lomo Diana Instant to move the flange depth back by the few mm needed to accommodate the Instax film cartridge. Without that you lose infinity focus and end up with a focus range of about 0.5m to 3m. The initial testing I've done using the adapter lens looks good for sharpness although the surround can cause vignetting so I need to make a new one.
