Polaroid 669 Film vs FujiFilm FP-100C

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Polaroid 669 Instant FilmAs many of you may already know, Polaroid discontinued their line of 669 film and it is no longer available. You may still be able to track down some old packages online, but it isn’t being manufactured anymore. The replacement that we are using for our Polaroid 669 cameras is FujiFilm FP-100C. It is a direct fit replacement.

Many people have asked me how the quality compares. Polaroid was known for making high quality instant film. From what I have seen, the FujiFilm FP-100C quality is just as good as the Polaroid 669 film and seems to hold up just as well. Each cartridge holds 10 film sheets.

FujiFilm Fp-100C Instant FilmThis should come as some relief to many of you who have instant film cameras that used Polaroid 669. We have been selling FujiFilm FP-100C for over a year now as a replacement and there are absolutely no complaints from our customers. None whatsoever.

You can find our FujiFilm FP-100C cartridges by going here. Do you still have questions about Polaroid 669 film and FujiFilm FP-100C? Call us at 1-800-658-8788 to speak with one of our photo ID specialists.

Polaroid 669 Film Replaced By FujiFilm FP-100C Instant Film

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Everyone’s favorite Polaroid 669 film has been replaced. Sad isn’t it? Although it has been gone for several months, we do get a lot of questions from customers regarding a replacement. Do not fret, there is a great replacement available.

Earlier this year Polaroid confirmed that they would stop making “Instant Film” that many of our photo ID and passport cameras use. Apparently this once popular film has fallen victim to the digital camera revolution. Polaroid 669 film was no exception.

Many people, however, really like the film. It requires no printer and can easily create instant photographs on site for identification and passport purposes. For this reason, we still sell a lot of Polaroid-style ID cameras (found here).

Still in need of instant film? You’re in luck. FujiFilm has a replacement that will work in all cameras that previously used Polaroid 669 film. This new film is called FujiFilm FP-100C Instant Film. We have a lot of it, it is priced about the same as the 669 film, and there is no indication that it will be going away anytime soon.
