What film do you need for Instax cameras and which is the cheapest?

All Fujifilm Instax Mini cameras - that includes the popular Mini 11, and the Mini 7 - will need a pack of Instax Mini film. The film comes as a 10-shot pack, but most retailers offer package deals, allowing you to purchase up to 60 sheets of film if you desire. Other Instax models, such as the Instax SQUARE, will take a different type of film, so make sure you purchase the right kind for your camera.

Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart are just some of the retailers you can purchase Instax film from - basically anywhere you can buy a new Instax camera, you can also buy film. As seen above, lots of bundles and kits on Instax cameras will also include a pack of film to go in the camera, with anywhere from 10 to 60 sheets included. Make sure you do your research before buying a bundle, so you know just how much film you will get when it arrives!

Are Instax cameras worth it?

Whether or not you think an Instax camera is worth investing in is of course completely subjective and up to each individual. If you’re a more seasoned photographer who already dabbles in film cameras and film processing, you might find yourself limited by the easy-to-use functions of the Instax. Due to their universality, the instant cameras are designed to be used by anyone, which means that their functions don’t really allow for much experimentation with different photography styles, light levels and subjects. 

However, if you’re after a camera that will let you take photos of yourself and your loved ones with ease, and can be swiftly printed out - without needing to be sent off for processing - then the Instax is a great way to capture these memories without going through too many steps (or knowing much about photography at all). They’re also a great gadget to take away with you on holidays or on short trips, as they’re a great size for traveling, and you’ll be able to see your photos immediately without waiting until you get home.
