Custom Instant Camera by Patrick Putze

Shooting with the camera in NYC

One thing I forgot to mention in the video is just how SHARP the lens is— really makes a huge difference when working with Fuji Instax materials.

  1. I have two rangefinders with excellent viewfinders so was wondering how bright the double image focus zone is? Is it easy enough to focus? Love this video, I am getting my converted 110b at the end of this month. Thank you.

  2. Hi Stephen, like your work, especially the low-rez black and white dream-like shots (girl at glass house). I ordered and paid for a Pathfinder Instax camera by Patrick Putze but he doesn’t reply anymore since before Christmas. It’s 3 months and 2 weeks since I paid and I don’t know if I will ever see my camera??! In the offer it said 4-5 weeks. What do you think?

        Thanks for the optimism, it worked. I received the camera now and it is great. Of course it is “worth the wait” but I would expect to receive a shipping confirmation and additional info when 5 weeks turn into 3,5 months. I also installed the voigtlaender meter, works well. Even in the impropable case of Fuji producing some kind of “FP-1 Instax” it wouldn’t have this long and brilliant 127mm lens and it would be even more expensive. So this is close to the ideal camera for me!

  3. I’ve also been wondering about my camera. I know he had a terrible 2017 and I hope he’s doing better. But I paid and sent him my camera April of 2017… and it’s August of 2018. Has anyone else been in the same boat? I’m sitting on a few cases of Instax and wishing I could shoot what you describe in this article.

    I ordered a camera in April 2017 and have still not received mine. I was promised it would be ready in June 2018 but still no camera and have no correspondence for over a month. I’m so looking forward to using one as I hear great things but can’t join to fun yet.

    +1 to someone who paid and is still waiting on a camera , surprised he would keep selling more if he has people waiting from 2017 , and I paid early 2018 , hopefully everyone at least receives a camera, probably a good guy but a terrible seller
    Beware if your thinking of ordering plan to add 50-100 weeks to quoted date apparently
