We are disappointed to learn that FujiFilm has discontnued its production of FP100c film, an essential medium for lovers of Polaroid instant cameras like Andy Warhol. It is our hope that the large, loyal and passionate community of instant camera photographers can rally to persuade makers of film that there remains a market for this unique medium.

Pack film cameras have defined half of my photography history.
For five of the ten years I've taken photographs, my Polaroid 195 has been my number one camera of choice and source of photographic inspiration. It was a sad moment when fp-3000b and fp-100b were discontinued, but at least the best of the three remained: fp-100c. I once scanned the recovered negative from a shoot and it was used in a two page magazine spread. I think it was sharper than any of the digital two page images in that issue, and it had a unique look to it as well.
