Fujifilm Filmpack, memories.

Fujifilm Filmpack, memories.

 

 

With Fujifilm confirming the demise of FP-100C, I was sifting through photos I've taken from many different film pack cameras that I had. I tweaked most of them, they were "Frankenroids", or Polaroid Land Cameras with manual lenses grafted on the front of them. I enjoyed each one entirely, each had an individual process of learning and as a result, I really enjoyed the photos from all of them. They've all gone now to new homes, and so have all of my regular Polaroid back equipped cameras (180, Pentax 6x7, RZ67II, etc). I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to use the FP-3000B and FP-100C stocks before they were discontinued. Having grown up and used Polaroids when I was a kid, the Fujifilm Filmpacks were the closest thing to the old Polaroid, which is still about twenty times better than Impossible. The excessive hate for Fujifilm is pretty comical in the sense that it was doomed all along once digital took over, very optimistic people supplying their e-mail addresses for a cause that is really irreversible. 

All I'm left are the memories and the positives of this great medium.

Though all isn't lost, I just picked up a Graflex XL with intentions to put an Instax wide back on it, Fujifilm still makes Instax Wide format and just recently released a new camera for it. The same principle exists, I want more control!

So sit back and enjoy my work with Fujifilm FP-3000B and FP-100C through the past few years.
