My own experience with Fujifilm
The first camera I bought was the Ricoh GR II & then the Ricoh GR III A small digital camera that doesn’t really well in black and white and with flash. My next cameras were the Fujifilm x100f that I use almost every day. In terms of Polaroid cameras or instant film cameras, I have to favorites – both are Instax cameras. It’s the Instax Mini 90 and the Instax square SQ10.
My primary camera today is the Fuji X T 3 and here is the list of my favorite lenses that goes with it. My two personal favorite lenses from FujiFilm is the 35mm 1.4 for street photography and the 56mm 1.2 for portrait photography.
The X-T3 from Fuji is a mirrorless camera, but so powerful and can film up to 4K 60fps.
The quality of the Instax mini 90 is better, but I’m a sucker for the retro film look the Instax square cameras produce too.
I’ve also made a complete list of great gifts we wish as photographers.
