Fuji introduced its new Mini LiPlay Instax camera this week. The new LiPlay camera uses the popular Instax Mini credit card sized film but turns to a digital sensor, which reduces some of the bulk compared to analog Instax Mini cameras. [Read more…]
Fuji announced that it is bringing black and white film back to market with the introduction of its new NEOPAN 100 ACROS II film.
“This 100 ISO film will deliver unsurpassed resolution, fine grain and sharpness, with exceptional detail satisfying a broad range of shooting scenarios and exposures. The 35mm and 120 format film will be introduced in Japan this fall, with other markets to follow, based upon demand.”
This is certainly a step in the right direction for the film enthusiasts out there; however, we still have to see enough demand before it shows up outside of Japan (although you can still find some existing stock of the original ACROS 100 in the US).
If that happens though, maybe we will someday get our beloved peel-apart Fuji FP-100C film back…?
One year ago today on May 30, 2018, Canon ended sales for the EOS-1v SLR film camera. It was the final film camera that Canon offered for sale.
Few 35mm film cameras (from any brand) remain on the market today. In fact, the only SLR film camera that B&H Photo currently offers in new condition is the Nikon F6. A handful of Leica rangefinders and Ansco point and shoot models round out the 35mm options. Fortunately, the film camera options for used equipment are bountiful on the likes of eBay, including tons of listings for the Canon EOS-1v.
So, pour one out for the Canon EOS-1v today as we move into the next generation of mirrorless cameras that stand on the shoulders of these workhorses from yesteryear.
As digital imaging continues to mature as a market, we’re still sorting out the back and forth of analog media. Portable printing is becoming a big deal and several companies, including Kodak, are offering some impressive ZINK printers, which I’ll touch on in a different post.
Kodak also has a few solutions for scanning your images to digital files, some of which have been on the market for longer than others. [Read more…]
Lomography has unveiled a new 35mm black and white film, B&W 400 35mm Berlin Kino. It is actually cut from an old roll of German cine film and casts delicate grain and soft tones.
The new film should ship in early December 2018. You can find Lomography film here at B&H Photo.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 is the follow-up to the incredibly popular Instax Mini 8. The overall size, shape and look of the Mini 9 closely resemble the Mini 8; however, there are a couple additional features that make the Mini 9 a more user-friendly camera than the Mini 8 out of the box.
