Instax Mini
First launched by Fujifilm in 1998, Instax Mini (£29.50 for 40 shots) snaps offer wallet-sized prints measuring 54 x 86mm, while the actual picture area is a tiny 46 x 62mm. You get 10 shots in each pack and one pack usually costs just under a tenner. Instax Mini offers the biggest range of different films, including monochrome and scores of different coloured borders, many of which are limited edition. Takes around 90 seconds to develop.
Instax Square
Bringing Instax tech to a bigger print, these square-shaped snaps measure 86 x 72mm with a picture size of 62 x 62mm. Like its Mini counterpart, Instax Square film (£17 for 20 shots) takes around 90 seconds to develop and offer 10 snaps per pack, with a price tag of around £15. The film comes in both colour and monochrome, and there are also a few options with different coloured frames.

Theatre people will be as glad as anyone to see the curtain close on 2020. Melbourne is rightly proud of its performing arts culture, and until March this year – before the longest theatre closures in modern Australian history – it was in full bloom.

Last summer feels like a distant era now. Looking back, it exemplified a dynamic, outward-looking, globally interconnected hub of performance Melbourne had come to take for granted.

It's hard to quantify just how damaging 2020 has been for the Australian theatre sector.
Performing arts workers — from writers and directors to ushers, stagehands and lighting artists — lost work overnight, after theatres across the country went dark in March.
Due to the short-term contract-based nature of their work, many were let go without severance pay and were not eligible for JobKeeper.

In-house teams: Polaroid on building a "modern analogue brand in a digital world"

In 2008, a small group of die-hard fans saved the last remaining Polaroid factory, located in the Netherlands, from shutting down.
Calling themselves the Impossible Project, the small cadre of instant photography fans became the “brand guardians” of the nine-decades-old Polaroid name. The team focused on producing film to begin with, and it wasn’t until 2017 that Polaroid began making cameras again.
“Most people don’t know the current iteration of Polaroid is different from the company they remember from the height of its fame 30 years ago,” says creative director Ignasi Tudela.
Since its relaunch, the Polaroid in-house design team has been growing and is now tasked with all elements of the much-loved brand, from physical products, to packaging, advertising and e-commerce. It is a “labour of love”, according to Polaroid chief design officer Ignacio Germade.

THE IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT Launches This Week


THE IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT Launches This Week
The website that documents creative endeavours that were made impossible  due to COVID-19.by BWW News Desk
The Impossible Project, a website that documents creative endeavours that were made impossible due to COVID-19, launches this week.
Developed by designer, artist and creative producer Anna Tregloan, The Impossible Project is both an archive of projects that almost existed, and an exposition of creative process. The site documents the stage that creative projects reached before being abandoned, cancelled or postponed, as well as being accompanied with smaller Impossible Tasks and Impossible Sketches which are almost a "prediction" of the possible creative form.

Polaroid Announces a Tiny New Printer That Promises Prints With a Much Better Lifespan

Card image cap


Polaroid has just announced a tiny new printer: the Hi-Print, measuring just under 7 x 4 inches and producing 2.1 x 3.4 inch prints, it’s perfect for those “not so serious ideas,” and prints are guaranteed not to fade over time.
The Hi-Print is Polaroid’s first ever dye sublimation printer, a method that should give the resulting print a longer lifespan. The printer pairs with an app on your smartphone and the prints are also stickers, making it perfect for those who like to decorate their laptops.
The dye sublimation process should be an upgrade on the thermal Zero Ink technology often found in smartphone printers which are known to produce prints which fade quite quickly, as seemed to be the case with the Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer released back in 2015.

5 best instant cameras 2020.

Card image cap


Ten years ago, instant cameras were nearly extinct. And then, somehow they joined the nostalgia parade, hopping right up on the same float as vinyl and cassette tapes. As a result, over the last few years a whole new generation of instant cameras have been introduced, with a range of prices and capabilities. To help you determine the right instant camera for you, we asked seven professional photographers to tell us which cameras take the best pictures and, maybe more important, which cameras can be the most fun: “I encourage a novice to focus predominantly on the aspect that makes it fun for them to use the camera,” says Wesley Verhoeve, a photographer and curator.

Best instant cameras 2020: fun cameras for instant photography

2021-03-26T23:34:08Z
In the era of digital photography, there is one breed of camera which harks back to a bygone era, producing real tangible prints, that you can actually, y’know, hold in your hand. 
We’re not talking about analogue cameras with 35mm film that you have to wait to be developed - oh no, we’re far too impatient for that - we’re looking at so-called “Instant” cameras. 
The past few years has seen somewhat of a revival of these quirky little cameras, and in 2019, there’s actually a heck of a lot of choice if you fancy picking up one of these kooky little gadgets. 

Film Photography Can Never Be Replaced

Card image cap


The long tail of archaic technologies is normal. Some people still use typewriters and phonographs, never buying into their replacements. Others, like Balkowitsch, fall for old-school methods when they discover communities of committed antiquarians.
Yet more than mere legacy is needed for an outmoded technology to become popular. The standard explanation for retro trends, which has been used to account for the return of vinyl records and analog film, is that the future is coming on too fast. And as much as rapid-fire advances seem unavoidable, the arts can provide a refuge. Nostalgia is a balm.
Just look to the plethora of digital filters that make your shots look like film. The Huji Cam app purposely corrupts perfectly exposed smartphone pics with simulated light streaks (and a faux 1998 date stamp). The more sophisticated VSCO emulates the color gamut of dozens of films, many out of production, so you can set your phone to capture a shot with the high saturation of Agfa Ultra 50 or the soft skin tones of Kodak Portra 150NC.

Review: An Impossible Project

Dr Florian "Doc" Kaps.
(The article continues below - Commercial information)
Doc is a Viennese biologist and analogue enthusiast who was the key person behind the revival of Polaroid. The company had invited him to a party organised to mark the closing of their last factory in Enschede, in the Netherlands, in 2008, the year after the iPhone was first launched and the year in which Eastman Kodak was starting to demolishing its buildings. Doc didn't want to see it go and managed to gather a group of friends and raise the €180,000 needed to buy the factory off from Polaroid, which was about to sell it for scrap.

In 1977, The Rockford Files on NBC was entering its fourth season. Playing the dashing but down-on-his-luck private eye Jim Rockford was veteran Hollywood actor James Garner. The gig made the handsomely weathered Garner one of the most recognized men on the tube. So when Polaroid hired him to pitch its latest product, Americans sat up on their sofas and paid attention.

PHONOCUT – Cut Your Own Vinyl at Home

Card image cap


A million years ago (the ’90s) when people had big ol’ box computers and brick phones, PCs suddenly could burn CD-Rs, and soon after DVDs, for archives and backups. What initially was meant for storage of digital files and photos, soon became the new blank cassette for music lovers. Now, you could burn a greatest hits CD from your collection of multiple CDs and even old cassettes. The iPod wouldn’t arrive until 2001, but there were definitely plenty of download sites slinging MP3s; and software like WinAmp, Musicmatch, and Soundjam for Macs (which would eventually become iTunes) that enabled you edit and rip from your computer. Then of course, there was Limewire and Napster and all the other fileshare P2Ps. 

Gold palm trees adorn the monochromatic interior of Darial concept store


Towering gold pillars shaped like palm trees, ivory carpets and black lacquer screens fill this dramatic concept store in Barcelona, which has been designed by haute couturier Djaba Diassamidze.
Called Darial, the 1,500-square-metre lifestyle store takes over the ground floor and basement of Casa Tomàs Roger, a 19th-century building in the city's Dreta de l'Eixample neighbourhood.
Conceived and founded by the Paris-based haute couturier Djaba Diassamidze, the minimalist store is described as an "experiential" retail space.
It sells an evolving selection of clothing, books, art, furniture and design objects by hundreds of different brands, and also boasts a brasserie-style restaurant and event space.

This Barcelona Boutique Channels an Art Deco Film Set – SURFACE

Card image cap


On Offer: Immense golden palm tree-shaped pillars, coromandel screens, and original furniture by 20th-century masters Pierre Chareau and Serge Roche set a cinematic vibe at this multipurpose concept space in Barcelona’s Dreta de l’Eixample neighborhood, inspired by the decadence of Alain Resnais’ French New Wave film, 
Last Year in Marienbad. Fashion designer Djaba Diassamidze puts his eclectic curatorial eye to use, resulting in a melange of wares: earbuds by Swedish brand Happy Plugs, Mariage Frères teas, rare design tomes, Impossible Project polaroid cameras, and apparel from leading fashion labels, among other offerings.
Standout Features: Furthering the trend of blending retail, art, and hospitality, a gallery housed in a cement arcade hosts rotating exhibitions, and the brasserie-style Le Léopard restaurant turns out contemporary European cuisine inside a glamorous space fitted with refurbished 19th-century red velvet banquettes and gold leaf ceilings inspired by Italian theatre director Luchino Visconti’s eponymous 1963 film.
