  1. I had the instax wide 300, and I was just walking around town, taking random photos. I came up to a classic car parked at this gas station. I wanted to take a picture of it so I waited around for the owner to show up. When he came out, I asked if he mind if I took a picture of his car. He said go ahead, it's what it's for. Like I said a classic car, this red car reminded me of an anime that the main character owns a yellow version of it. So I took the picture, it came out awesome, had excellent lighting conditions. I ended up showing the owner the picture then I took another one then gave that one to him. He was very happy with it, said he wanted some camera like that to take with him when he goes to these classic car shows. Told him where he can find the instax wide 300 and the film. Made me happy to give him a nice instant photo of his car. That made his day and mines. I actually liked the car so yea, I have a copy of it. Instax photography is fun!

  2. I study photography and recently got a mini 8(it was the only one i could afford), and I love it! I even used a reuined one(it came out black) to write a message on it.

  3. I think you nailed the mistake of not giving away the photos. Just recently, I took a polaroid of a young boy and he was absolutely amazed by the camera and how it works. I gave him the picture even though I was quite sad about not having it anymore (plus these impossible films are extremely expensive…) and I guess it really made him happy. 🙂 So this kinda made my day and I think I realised that sharing these photos is what makes instant photography so special. I'll never see him again, but I'll definitely remember this moment. 🙂 Maybe I should just use my Instax camera next time, these films are affordable at least 😅.

  4. Just to add to #1 tip. You can get instant film w 5% discount by taking advantage of Amazon's subscribe and save feature. the best item to subscribe for at the moment is 36.68$ for a pack of 60. Comes out to like ~.58$ per sheet.

  5. Good video and great that you've been publishing a lot more often recently Lauren & Rob!
    I just wish there was a nice album option for instax wide film that you could link to… 🙁
    The only thing I hope you guys could get to test, is one of the more advanced made-to-order custom instax-wide cameras that use an old Polaroid 600SE or Mamiya Universal Press cameras, with adapted backs originally made by Lomography for their Belair camera. In fact, I understand Lomography may not be making these crank-actuated backs at the moment, so the people making these conversions are either trying to use Polaroid instant backs for Impossible film, or heavily hacking and modifying a whole Fujifilm instax wide 210 or 300 to serve a sort of "powered instax wide back".
    The cool thing about it, although very heavy solution, is that one can finally focus manually via a rangefinder, and even change lenses. You should check https://www.fb.com/InstantOptions or http://www.instantoptions.com Also, these aren't cheap solutions given all of the hand labor and technical expertisse involve in these mods, so there's that litle detail about balancing the cost of being able to shoot and focus fully manual vs. the actual limits of the instax wide film itself in terms of resolution, color rendition, etc…

  6. I love aaaaaaall your videos, they've helped me a lot to get to the ultimate decision of buying the instax mini 90, and these tips came in handy! I would love to buy the lomo automat glass, I loved the results you got with it and the design looks so cool, it was love at first sight, but honestly, CR2 batteries are such a pain to find in my country, I think is such a shame they don't use a rechargeable battery for their cameras 🙁 lomography has such great funny designs, I've been looking forward to the mini 90 for quite a while, I LOVEEE its vintage design, but wanted to make sure I was making the right decision
    Anyway, thank you so much for all your videos, when it comes to instant photography I come to watch your videos, I love your energy and the way you talk, it definitely shows how much you love instant photography… not to mention the pile of film in front of you and the amount of cameras right behind you haha!
