instant photo gratification

Taking this Remains of the Day class got me thinking about easier ways to journal photographs. Although digital cameras are very convenient and I no longer have to leave the house to get film developed, there are times when I just don't want to go through all the steps to get a photo printed (wait for computer to boot up, find the right cables to connect the camera, curse at crappy photo editing software, curse at printer for running out of ink halfway through the picture, curse at myself for not taking a better photo in the first place, etc). I recently found out about the Fuji Instax Mini Camera which looks like a fun and simple alternative and would be great for journaling on the go.

And because I would have to embrace the wabi-sabi nature of instant photos, my perfectionist self can just accept what comes out of the camera and not have to fuss with editing, etc. Now if I can just get someone to buy one for me...

You should try a pogo printer...I got one and love it. It prints out a 2x3 picture that seems to make most pictures look darling.

This looks like a fun new camera. I have a Pogo printer but am having problems with the cable connection to my camera- ugh!!!! I ordered a new USB cable for the camera and hope that solves the problem. Thanks for sharing this information.
