Taking photos with your Fuji Instax Mini Camera is so much fun and its unique ability to print the photo right away allows you to instantly capture a special moment or scene.  As with all instant cameras, this requires you to always have a fresh pack of Fuji Instax Mini Film loaded in your camera.

Many people have asked me for advice on where to purchase the Fuji Instax Mini Film, how to ensure you have the best quality film and last, but by no means least, how to get the best deals when purchasing film packs.

Today I want to share with you on the various film packs available, look at the pros and cons of each and help guide you to choosing the best film pack for your needs.

The 3 most popular Fuji Instax Mini Film pack options are explained in the table below, together with a “cost per photo” comparison.  I highly recommend that you buy your film packs in bulk to take advantage of long-term savings.

FUJI INSTAX MINI FILM PACK OPTIONS

There are different places where you can buy new films for the camera. You can go to your local retail stores, shopping malls and of course, the internet.

I always order my films online from a reputable source which is important because the Fuji Instax Mini Film packs are sensitive to light and heat exposure and you want to be sure that your film packs have been carefully handled while shipping.

Let us review the options available and weigh up the pros and cons:

1. FUJI TWIN PACK, 20 SHEETS

This Fuji Instax Mini Film twin pack contains two rolls of film that take 10 pictures apiece. This order would get you 20 pictures.  Here are the other specification details:

  • Ordering this 20 sheet pack online from a reputable source such as Amazon will ensure you have a fresh film pack which is not expired or damaged by exposure to high temperatures or sunlight.
  • This option is the least expensive in terms of initial cost, which can be good if you just want to test out your instant camera or are buying a film pack as a present for a friend or loved one.

CONS

  • This is the most expensive option in terms of cost per photo, costing up to 12% more for the “cost per photo” which does not even take into account the extra shipping costs and hassle of ordering multiple times online.

2. FUJI VALUE PACK, 60 SHEETS

This Fuji Instax Mini Film value pack contains six rolls of film that take 10 pictures apiece. This order would get you 60 pictures.  Here are the other specification details:

  • Cost-effective – this option will reduce the cost per shot from $0.67 to $0.61 per shot which is about an 8% saving.  Of course, this is not much, but if you took 60 photos it would already save you $3.60 and potentially more when you factor in the shipping costs.

CONS

  • This option requires a higher initial outlay than buying the 20 sheets, something to bear in mind particularly if you are buying it as part of a present or you are simply not sure how often you will use the camera.
  • This option is not as economical as buying the 100 sheets.

CONS

  • This option requires a higher initial outlay than buying the 20 or 60 sheets, something to bear in mind particularly if you are buying it as part of a present or you are simply not sure how often you will use the camera.

CONCLUSION

I always opt for the 100 sheets option when placing my order for Fuji Instax Mini Film packs because it offers the best long-term savings, reduces the hassle and time spent ordering online AND I can save on shipping costs too.  This would be the option I recommend.

If you are short on budget, or still not sure how often you will use the camera then the 20 sheets or 60 sheets options could be better for you.
