FUJI INSTAX WIDE FILM INTRODUCTION

Taking photos with your Fuji Instax Wide 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 Wide Film loaded in your camera.

One important thing to note up front is that the Fuji Instax Wide Film can be used in a range of cameras, including ones not made by Fujifilm!  The Instax Wide film is suitable for the following cameras:

  • Fuji Instax Wide 210 Camera
  • Fuji Instax Wide 300 Camera
  • Lomo Instant Wide Camera

Many people have asked me for advice on where to purchase the Fuji Instax Wide 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 Wide pack options are explained in the table below, together with a “cost per photo” comparison.  As you will see from the comparison it is actually cheaper to NOT buy your wide film packs in bulk.

FUJI INSTAX WIDE 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:

WHICH INSTAX WIDE FILM SHOULD I BUY?
