FUJIFILM INSTAX Compared to Polaroid ZIP with Zink Paper


I am going to do a long term light fade study with INSTAX and ZINK prints.  As you will see in the video I have printed the same files on both machines and now have them hanging in the window and will check on them over the next year to see any degradation occurring and report back!  
The files are not match prints since that is basically not possible but in the spirit of taking a look at what happens over time the images will do.  I expect to see a noticeable difference in them and that will be what is judged compared to their original state.  And I can always reprint the file next year to check status.  This is thoroughly unscientific and a personal curiosity.  No company mentioned is involved in any way whatsoever.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome....

You can see here the batches of prints from each unit.

 The Polaroid Zip did give me an alert to slow down - which I did and the files were fine after a few minutes.

 Hanging in the window are outward facing files from each printer and a back facing copy as the control item.  They are in regular print file holders.
