    In these days I was wondering about the practical use of the new square instant film format and its size is really similar to 56x56mm. It could be something really useful to have new instant backs for our cameras, maybe a Kickstarter project could help us? I'd honestly spend some bucks on that kind of products.

    Someone'll bang something together. I'd love to throw some 'roids into the back of my Broni.

    I'd love to do that with my Hasselblad, for both creative and technical purpose.

    Mercury Camera has already adapted several Instax format backs to fit Graflok 2x3 and 4x5 cameras. They have already said they will be looking at doing the same for the new format.

    The world will seriously benefit from a universal, or near universal instax back right now. It would likely be 3d printed, so you might as well make a few different mounts..
