    I just discovered the Fuji Peel film and thought I'd try and shoot some before it's gone.

    I really wish that they would keep this in stock (and that the price would go down)

    I bought a Polaroid 100 Automatic Land Camera to use when I visit my mom in May..she's 87 and not expected to last substantially longer. I shoot lots of film whenever I visit.

    It would be great if Impossible would nail their film to be the same as the polaroid of yesteryear.

    I have the same camera, 20 packs of colour film, 2 batteries and 8 flash bulbs, it's fun to use and I like the saturated images it produces. Have fun with yours!

    That's the camera that got me back into photography, and hooked on instant. Someone had given me an older Polaroid 800, and when I found out I couldn't easily use it, I bought a refurbished 100 pack camera.

    I now use both (I had the 800 converted to a 110a with a 600se back), and I buy film whenever it's below $20/pack. I also shoot a lot of instax in the 800 when I don't want to use peel apart.
