Glazer’s Holiday Gift Guide: The Best in Analogue & Instant Film
In the past few years we have seen a massive increase in the love of creating images on film. In this digital age, we are embracing the creative process and slowing down by using film as a format. Glazer’s offers a broad spectrum of used Film and Digital Cameras, the selection varies daily, we suggest visiting on a regular basis!
From finding awesome older, 35mm cameras like a Nikon FM2 or a Contax, to larger cameras like Pentax 6×7 or Hasselblads, the wide variety of cameras we see is quite spectacular.
Along with this variety in cameras, we stock a lot of varieties of film, in 35mm, 120 & 4×5; From Kodak to Fujifilm to CineStill to Ilford and beyond. We also carry chemistry and darkroom equipment; everything you need to begin developing and printing your own film at home, if you want to!
Perhaps you want to slow down in your image creation process, but would still love that instant gratification of seeing what you created, fairly quickly. This is where you may consider adding an instant or hybrid camera to your collection.
In 2017 the Impossible Project, rebranded to Polaroid Originals, this included the release of an updated version of Polaroid’s One Step, now called the One Step 2. Since then there have been some technology updates, with the One Step 2 + which has the option to trigger via their bluetooth app. The Polaroid Originals One Step 2 is available in White or Graphite.
Polaroid Originals creates a variety of film stock, which works in older Polaroid cameras including 600 series, Spectras and SX-70’s; as well their newer i-Type cameras. The release the very well known white frame option, but do smaller batches of film that include fun frames. For summer they released “Ice Cream” and for the holiday season we have Red Metallic and Gold Metallic.
Another great option for Instant film fun would be the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9! Available in a variety of colors, these cameras are great for kids or adults. It’s a lot fun seeing these small prints pop out and develop, then sharing them with family and friends at parties.
Bringing together digital technology and instant prints couldn’t be more fun!
The Fujifilm SQ10 is a hybrid camera, containing a small digital sensor, but creating instant prints. This camera provides the option to capture a multitude of images but print only the ones you want, or print multiple copies of your favorites on the newer Square Instax Film.
If you want the pure analogue experience with Fujifilm’s newer square format, also consider the Fujifilm SQ6, which is fully an instant camera.
The Fujifilm SP3 Instax Share Printer is the newest in the line up of Instax Share Printers. This printer exports the newer Square format instant film from Fujifilm. You can print images from your smartphone, through their Instax Share app (available for iOS or Android), or you can print directly from select Fujifilm Cameras. This little printer is fabulous fun at parties, or travelling!
