Sharp, colorful images from a instant film,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm Instax Wide Film Twin Pack (White) (Old Packaging) (Camera)
I tested the Fuji Instax 200 film versus the Polaroid 600 at a party and the Fuji won in every category. Clear, sharp, colorful images in and very easy and fast loading application. The instant print pictures are "wide format" and print just a bit larger than the old, familiar Polaroid prints. The Fuji prints still leave a nice little white area on the bottom for writing captions, which is nice.
My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the price. It costs about $1 per picture unless you buy it in 50 to 100 bulk. Even in bulk the price drops to only about .75 cents per picture. AND I have only found the film for sale online, so plan ahead and purchase enough film for your special event because you won't be able to run out to Walgreens to buy more last minute.
You're not going to get 35mm or digital print quality from this film, but in the world of instant print, this Fuji film is a winner.
I've had lots of questions on whether or not this will work with a Polaroid camera. I've never tried it but the film packaging says "Instax Wide Camera Only" which is the specific Fuji camera this film is made for. Hope that helps.

Did anyone find out if this film works on a Polaroid 600 camera? I'm very curious.

Wow, sorry for the late response....3 years late.
I haven't tried it in a polaroid, but this is a wide version film, so I imagine it would not. I just looked at the film packaging and it says Instax camera ONLY.

This is specifically made for the Fuji Instax Camera. It's a wide format film, so I don't think it will work for anything except the Fuji camera.

Just to drive the point home... Fuji Instax (integral) print materials absolutely WILL NOT work with Polaroid cameras. There are three reasons...
They simply won't fit.
They have no battery.
They expose the picture from the front, so even if they did fit, the final image would be flopped.
The FP-100C peel-apart material is an excellent product -- sharper, with more-accurate color and a wider tonal scale than any Polaroid material (though I still miss Polaroid's ProVivid, with its extreme saturation and good skin tones). It works in any camera that takes Colorpack materials.
This is the definitive answer from someone who took Polaroid photos for almost 40 years. Ignore anyone who says otherwise.
