Their new Instax Mini 9 instant camera is now available for pre-order for $69 with free shipping, in five pastel-y color-schemes at Amazon by Amazon itself.
As of 2/22/17 recheck, this sold out…

It’s only a matter of time before we start getting movie trailers from Black Friday retailers, but at the moment, Amazon is happy to tease us with press releases. They list items that will be offered at any point in time between now and December 22 in 2016. I have no clue when the items mentioned will be offered. Of camera and photo interest, they tease two products:
+ Fujifilm Instax Mini 26 film camera with Film Bundle for $49.99
+ 52% off on the “National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary” by National Geographic and Stephen Alvarez (website)
+ the list price of the hardcover book is $40, so assuming it is 52% off that, the sale price will be $19.20. The current price of the book (as of the time of writing of this post) is $27.19
+ published October 2015, 400 pages, 9.6 x 1.2 x 11.3 inches
I will be keeping an eye out for these, but I have no clue when they will be offered…
Instant film cameras continue their mini resurgence (pun intended?), as a brand new option from Fuji, the Fujfilm Instax Mini 26 + Rainbow Film Bundle is now in-stock and ready to ship for $70 in four different camera-body color-schemes at Amazon by Amazon itself.

The Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 Instant Film Camera is currently on sale for $87.50 with free shipping by various at Amazon (including Amazon itself) and Adorama and B&H Photo. It looks like a price-match that propagated through.
Speaking of instant cameras, the 30pk of Polaroid Zink photo paper goes for $13.55 at Amazon. Note this is for Polaroid cameras, not Fuji.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera in the yellow color scheme has dripped down a bit more, now going for $50 with free shipping with a limit of five units per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself.

The Impossible Project i-1 instant film camera is now in-stock-ish from the Impossible Project website. You can purchase it right now with a shipping estimate of 1-2 weeks ($300 is the option without any film, the $350 and $400 prices include film with them).

Speaking of instant, one 10-pack of Polaroid PIF-300 Instant Film goes for $12 at Adorama (plus shipping) or two 10-packs (total 20 exposures) for $24 with free shipping at Adorama and Amazon (the usual free shipping terms).
From the Impossible Project, the Polaroid 600 Camera is bundled with one Color Film Pack (eight exposures) together for $130 with free shipping at Stacksocial with a limit of three bundles per customer.
PS: it is interesting to go back and forth between digital and instant, where you can take near infinite pictures without additional cost, versus paying additional money for every exposure. This could make an interesting photography essay/exploration for someone to write!
One of the main (aka the ones that run all day long ~ unless they sellout) Amazon Gold Box Daily Deals is a sale on various Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Cameras. The camera-only goes for $100, while the bundle with a 50pk of 2×3 ZINK paper and pouch go for $113. Limit three per bundle per customer. I believe some colors sold-out since it went live, so don’t sleep on them. Offers end at 3am ET on Wednesday or earlier if sold out.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 Instant Film Camera in the yellow color option is on sale for $99 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit five per customer. If yellow is not your color, the sale also includes the blue and white camera bodies that go for $100 each with a limit of five as well. A 3rd-party seller has them for the same price, so you can get more from them if you need more.
TIP: this looks like it may be an automated Amazon price-match of the 3rd-party seller price, so it’s completely unpredictable how long this will last.
Among the longer non-daily deals at Woot, there is a mini camera sale good until 4/28/16 at 12am central featuring three models:
+ new condition Canon SX530 HS superzoom for $190
+ refurbished yellow Fuji XP80 waterproof for $90
+ refurbished white Fuji Instax Mini 8 instant camera for $50
The limit is three of each camera per customer. Shipping is $5 flat for everything you buy from Woot in April 2016, so if you already bought something, you won’t pay shipping again in April 2016. This may be an experiment to try a monthly/annual membership or a competitive counter to the $5 per month Meh.com MVP plan (they funnily call is VMP rather ironically!).
We have a “mini” instant camera theme now, first with a real camera, and the next post below with an imaginary camera. The real instant camera is this, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera currently on sale for $49 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of five per customer. This is available in black, blue and pink at these prices.
Instant cameras may not be edible as instant noodles, but you can’t take pictures with the noodles (or can you???). The Fujifilm INSTAX Wide 300 Instant Film Camera is bundled with 20 sheets of Instax wide film (two 10pks) for the same price as the camera-only, $100 with free shipping at Adorama. Is this the vinyl-comeback equivalent in photography? Details at 11 🙂
Film is making a solid comeback, vinyl is making a solid comeback, when are the flip phones going to make their comeback? The answer to that I do not know, but I do know that the Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia 100 Color Slide Film ISO 100 (35mm, 36 exposures) is on sale for $10.64 with a limit of ten per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. The usual free shipping terms apply (Prime membership or $35+ order).
An instant camera is more fun when you have more film 🙂 So with that in mind, Adorama is bundling the FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 Camera (available in multiple colorful pastel-y colors) with the Daylight Film Twin Pack (20 exposures) for $75 with free shipping.
At the bottom of the list there, you will also find the Fujifilm INSTAX Wide 300 Instant Film Camera bundled with the Instax Wide Instant Color Print Film for $100 with free shipping.
You can find them all at the Adorama Instax Sales. Offers end by 12/25/15 at 11:59pm ET.
It is a bit interesting that two of the hot non-smartphone photography segments at the moment are instant cameras and action cameras. Which just goes to show that the market works in mysterious ways. Which brings us to the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera on sale for around $60 with free shipping in different color schemes at B&H Photo (click on the color tabs over there to switch colors in-page) and at Adorama where you can even find the Winnie the Pooh edition for $60 as well.

As of 5:24pm ET re-check, this Electronics Woot-OFF offer sold out…

It is powered by two CR2 batteries, and jumps on the selfie bandwagon by including a “selfie mode” with a built-in selfie mirror.

One of the Best Buy Daily Deals for Monday 9/21/15 is the Fujifilm Instax WIDE 300 Instant Film Camera offered for $100 with free shipping or free store pickup (where available).
Being creative (in the eyes of the unwashed masses) is sometimes all about image (of course it shouldn’t be, but that’s how the world works). So if you are lactose intolerant and can’t have that upside down extra foam half-calf unsweetened almond milk with dry soy foam latte (a drink only a true creative would get), the next best choice is to go hipster. Which brings us to…
… to the eBay Deals party we return where we find Buydig’s eBay store offering the new condition Fujifilm Instax 8 Color Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera for $59 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer, with five different color choices available.

Depending on color scheme (seven options) and the actual seller, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera start at $64.50 (yellow) and go up to $70 at Amazon… Meanwhile the Mini 8N bundles range from $67 to $71… Prices fluctuate as they change at each seller and for each color… These are instant film cameras (I’m sure someone somewhere has a question at Yahoo Answers on where to put the SD memory card in these because they can’t find the slot or it doesn’t fit)…
