If Kodak Tr-X is my heroin, then Fuji Instax is my Methadone. Instax keeps me going in between hits when I’m waiting for film to be developed. Fortunately, Instax isn’t anywhere near as expensive as class A drugs and it certainly isn’t as damaging to your health – you can pick-up a good second-hand Fuji Instax for less than £50. I get my film off Amazon for £15 for a pack of 20 shots. Each shot is a truly individual.
A technical note to anyone wishing to experiment with class A analogue – although Instax is an ‘instant’ film, the image can take up to 2 hours to fully ‘come-up’ and show all the colours and tones.
