Where to Buy Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Films in Bulk?

instaxfujifilm2Using the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is truly fun and remarkable. Just when we thought that filmed cameras are a thing of the past, we now have the growing popularity of instant cameras.

One thing that makes instant cameras really unique is its ability to immediate provides us a tangible picture.

When I first had my Instax Mini 8, I was really delighted on how it performs. There are a lot of features to enjoy as well.

However, the camera is as fun as its films. So when you run out of film, using the instant camera isn’t as good as it is. Therefore, if you want to continue enjoying your Instax Mini 8, just like in my case, you need to buy a fresh pack of films.

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 had my films ordered online. This gives me more convenience. But when buying films, I highly recommend that you buy in bulk since this will give you more savings in the long run. If you still don’t know where to buy these films by bulk, let me give you the sources.

In addition to this, I’ll share some thoughts and reviews pertaining to these products.

1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, 50 sheets

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, 50 sheets

This product will let you buy films in bulk. In the box, you’ll get 10 sheets of film in 5 packs. Here are the other specifications.

  • Compatible with Instax Mini Cameras
  • Compatible with Lomo Diana Instant, Polaroid 300 and Polaroid Mio
  • Film speed of ISO 800
  • Full color
  • Image size: 62 mm in length and 46 mm in width
  • Fresh films, not expired

Pros

  • Exactly what I expected – well, of course, if you pay for something, you expect that it’ll be the same product you pay for, right? I’m just happy to receive exactly what the description from the online market says. You see, some products bought via the internet are expired and sometimes, in really bad condition. I had the same experience of that when I bought film online for my Polaroid 600 where almost all films are as good as trash. So, I’m a bit more appreciative with what I get now for this product.
  • Cost-effective – buying in bulk gives you more savings in the long run, instead of buying one by one. You can save as much as 10% in your purchase, plus it will take longer for you to run out of film – that’s less time going to and fro in a store.

Con

  • Packaging issues – if you look the into promotional photo, you will see only one box. This is exactly what I get when I first bought the product. But when I bought another batch, the package comes into two boxes with one pack outside the box. So you have 2 packs in each box and one pack outside the box. Maybe the company tries to do some cost-cutting efforts with this tactic. Thankfully, the pack not included in the box is in good condition. So it’s still a good buy.

2. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, 100 sheets

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8, 100 sheets

This is almost the same as the first product, but it has 100 sheets. It has 10 packs with each pack having 10 sheets inside. Basically, the features are almost the same.

  • Compatible with Fujifilm Instax Mini Cameras (including Polaroid’s and Diana’s instant cameras)
  • Has a film speed of ISO 800
  • Full color
  • Film size is 86 mm in length and 54 mm in width
  • Image size is the same with the aforementioned product

Pros

  • Works for multiple cameras – since the whole package comes with 100 sheets, people who have multiple cameras will be happy to buy this.
  • Cost-effective – buying per pack will give you around $1 per shot. However, if you buy this product, you’ll be spending below $0.75 for each shot. Of course, this is not too much, but if you think about it, in 100 sheets, you will already save $7.

Con

  • Image quality – when it comes to image quality, it can provide great images. However, if you’re difficult to please, you need to realize that instant cameras are not made with high resolution in mind. It’s more on the vintage effect and the fun of shooting and printing.

Conclusion

These are the two places where you can buy Fujifilm Mini 8 film by bulk. If you’re thinking which of the two products will be the best choice, I would say the product with 100 sheets. You can save a few cents with it, but I don’t think you will feel the difference. So, if you’re a bit short in budget, you can just go for the 50 sheets per package.

    We have a Polaroid cameras that the kids LOVE to use! It’s that instant gratification thing, I think. This is perfect. Buying almost anything in bulk really helps the budget!

    This sounds like great film. I am a fan of buying stuff in bulk. I loved my Polaroid camera I had as a kid.

  4. says

    My daughter has been interested in film photography for a while now. I have been thinking about getting her a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 and you have convinced me to do just that!

  5. says

    I do not have to buy film thanks to my new printer it prints pictures beautifully. But i will definitely recommend to my friends because this looks like a great product.

  6. CourtneyLynne says

    omg film?!? This is something I haven’t seen in awhile!!! Glad to see you can still get it and in bulk :)

    This is so cool! How fun. My daughter would love these. I thought Polaroid style prints were gone. Thanks for sharing.

  8. says

    You’re right – I didn’t think there were any more cameras like Polaroid instant – I loved that – and now you make me want to get into it again! Thank you for this update for me :)

  9. says

    Good to know you can get the film on Amazon! I still have some for mine, but I wasn’t sure where I’d get it once it runs out.

  10. says

    Oh my kiddo got one of these two Christmases ago and she loves it BUT very honestly it is the hardest thing in the world to find film for. It’s so very popular that it is always out at the store when I got to buy her some. This is wonderful and timely news for me. I can use this immediately. Thanks!!

  11. says

    I’m so glad I came across your post. I received the camera for those a few months ago and ran out of film so quickly. Buying in bulk seems the most ideal for this.

  12. says

    I just got an instant camera for my son (he’s 21) at his request. That’s what he wanted for his birthday present (he’ll be 22, lol).

  13. says

    Getting a tangible thing out of it is really underrated I think. We all have thousands of pictures on our phones, but when do you ever really get them printed out. I know around here, we are sorely lacking in actual prints of photos, this is a great way to get them.

  14. says

    I have had one of these Instamax on my wish list for a while now. I take a Slam Book with me when I go on road trips. I would love to be able to have instant pics to put in them. I miss the whole Polaroid experience. Great info on the film.

  15. says

    This is an interesting product. It sounds like something that would be great to put on a few tables at an event such as a wedding. Let the guests take photos and then take home the ones they like.

  16. says

    When it comes to items like this – printer ink, printer paper, and other similar accessories and supplies, I order online…and usually in bulk. This way, I increase my chances of getting the best price.
