So apparently the metaverse is coming for your everything. Which is why tangible, irl stuff is just going to get more ubiquitous—and important. Instead of capturing a moment and sending it to the virtual exile that is your prefered cloud service, Fujifilm’s Instax cameras create a one time only, non-fungible picture that you can hold in your hands. Hang it up somewhere and look at it until it’s destroyed by fire, chewed by dogs, or tucked in a box when you move only to be discovered by your descendants after you’re gone.
The Instax Mini 40 even looks cool with it’s super retro Jimmy Olsen’s camera vibe. Load up one of Fuji’s Instax Mini film packs (ten images to a pack, eight to ten bucks per pack) point at something worthy of commemorating and after the 90 second development time, you’ll have something with a memory that will outlast a thousand phone pics.
