Vintage from the 1990s

Description

The instax 200 holds 10 instant color photos available in the Fujifilm Instax 200 Instant Color Print Film Twin Pack. (There are 10 film sheets in each pack.) You insert the included batteries under the grip, drop a film pack into the back of the camera, and you're ready to rock. The most difficult part is attaching the neck strap, which I failed to master.

The camera offers basic but simple controls. Press the red power button, and the two-position lens pops out. A gray button lets you toggle between a subject that is 0.9- to 3 meters away or 3 meters or more away. (Labels on the camera controls are in meters only.) Another lets you lighten or darken a print, useful for reshooting a picture. There's also a switch for the built-in flash. An oval LCD indicates your choices and the number of remaining shots. The camera retracts the lens and powers off automatically when idle for five minutes.

The instax 200's moderately wide lens (around 35mm) is convenient for photographing a group of people at relatively close range. The print image occupies 3 7/8- by 2 7/16-inches, which approximates the aspect ratio of a widescreen TV. These are not the square-like images of a Polaroid Swinger. Including the white borders, the photograph is 4 ¼ by 3 6/16-inches. The non-glossy space below the picture is ample for penning a caption.

The film is usable from 41 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. When I took a picture outside by a fruit stand with the temperature hovering at about 41, the image didn't appear until I went inside. You can't use the old Polaroid trick of sequestering an undeveloped photo in the warmth of your armpit since there's no protective sheet to peel away.


Yet, the instax 200 is the kind of camera you could easily keep in your car to document everything from an accident to a house find. Among Fujifilm's targeted markets are law enforcement, insurance, real estate, modeling agencies, event marketers, party photographers, and auto repair shops. To that list I'd add the casual photographer like myself who misses the pleasure of being able to take a picture and pocket the tangible results or hand someone a photograph on the spur of the moment. Also, because the camera is relatively inexpensive and built like a tank, it makes a great gift for children as well as adults who want to have prints in their hands right away.

Finally received it this morning before the mail goes out for the entire condo complex. It was a pleasure to choose from Eastside Vintage Flea for a wonderful Hanging Canteen that brings empathy into my enthusiasm. One of a kind finds are very exceptional for my insight through life!!! It was packaged and shipped with extreme care. Thank you for your kindness in a way that all customers should be treated. Daniel Straight Arrow Lessard
