Who Really Puts Instax Film in Their Mouth?

Sometimes I forget that I’m 35 years old and that my fellow millennials have done some stupid things like going to Fire Festival. But when I look at the new warning label on Instax film, I wonder if Gen Z didn’t learn from the tide pod trend from years ago. Not long ago, Fujifilm issued a new warning on the back of their Instax film. It specifically tells customers that they’re not supposed to put the film in their mouth. But isn’t that obvious?

“The process of shooting film is fascinating”, says Dingsheng WU, Business Development Manager of the NONS SL42 camera line.

The Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Shoots Instax Film with an f4.5 Glass Lens

The photography market finally has another glass lens camera of some sort with the Lomography Automat Glass edition’s announcement today. It joins the Diana F+ and the Mint TL70 as a few of the only offerings with glass lenses on the market. But beyond the lens, it also has the fastest aperture of the bunch coming in at f4.5.

PS: Don’t forget about our Instax Portrait Photography Workshop this weekend!!!

Very recently in the history of film, Fujifilm discontinued their 3000B peel apart Instax film–which was highly loved by so many photographers. In fact, I personally was shocked when the discontinuance was announced as I always found it much more appealing than 100-C color peel apart film. In contrast to the peel apart film, Fujifilm told us that Instax sales are very strong. However, Instax Mini and Instax Wide film is currently only available in color.

Why?
