The Top Ten things to Know about Fujifilm Instax Film by Robert Hamm

A few months ago, my brother came to visit. It was a special time because I had not seen him in so long. He was also brought his three boys. Adding my two “little men” and myself to the party, our total soon grew to seven. Boy, were we rolling deep!

Humor aside, I wanted something special to document the occasion. Going out on a limb, I chose to photograph most his trip on the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 as well as Instax Mini film. I had to buy the system since I didn’t own the camera or the film. Thank goodness for price matchinI.

I did not know how capable the film and camera would turn out to be. After over 800 images, and a lot of research, here are the TOP Ten things I have learned:

#1: What Is Instax?

Fujifilm describes their Instax film as “…an ISO 800 credit-card-size integral daylight color film designed for use with Fujifilm Instax mini cameras. This glossy film yields superb results under both daylight and electronic flash conditions. Though small, its improved picture quality and greater ease of use make it ideal for snapshots and portraits. Furthermore, it’s easy to-file-and-carry size makes it an excellent choice for documentary or archival purposes, as well as a wide variety of other applications.”

#2: Who is it for?

TheCameraStoreTV Fujifilm X-T20 Review: “A Fantastic Winner. Beautiful, Capable and Affordable”


TheCameraStoreTV tested the Fujifilm X-T20 on the streets of Tokyo and the Fujifilm Taiwa factory!

Here are some excerpts… but check out the full field test at their youtube channel

  • Intuitive and fast to handle
  • very fast focussing
  • smaller and lighter than X-T2, which is why it makes it more appealing for travels
  • touch screen “fast enough”
  • delay when switching between EVF and LCD… could be faster
  • Great video, but 4K not as sharp as on X-T2 (NOTE: I remind you that the X-T20 uses “half line skipping ” in 4K, as opposed to the X-T2, which reads every line on the sensor. This is to prevent the smaller X-T20 to overheat. Fuji Guy Bully says here 4K with half line skipping is technically possible also for X-Pro2)
  • A fantastic winner, that is beautiful, capable and affordable

P.S.: Episode filmed on the Fujifilm X-T2.
P.P.S.: The Fujifilm GFX 50S episode will follow soon
P.P.P.S.: this blog post was written right after I left the eye doctor for a visit. I can hardly read what I wrote, so pardon me if you will find even more typos than usual… but for you guys, full dedication… I’ll write even half-blind :)
