    Not quite black and white

    A few important notes on it: * Works in all Instax MINI cameras (Mini 8, 25, 50s, Neo 90, Lomo'Instant, TL-70) and printers (instax SP-1, SP2), NOT available in WIDE format * Each pack contains only 10 shots (unlike the common "20 packs" of instax mini (color) film) * The price of 10 Monochrome shots is about equal to 20 Color shots, so keep it in mind. * Retail price should be 10 shots for 10 bucks.. Don't give in to the sellers asking more than that. Using it, it's nice! It's not as nice as some of the earlier black and white films in other formats (like the peel-apart films they discontinued a few years ago) but it's a good change from the color shots. The film itself has a ~2-year expiration date. The packs I received were all dated mid-2018 (and the instax films tend to be good until after that) While the film is Black and White.. I found it to not be true black and white. It has tints of other colors in it (most noticeable, a greenish tint). This sometimes happens when you have a contrast with the black and white but I do wonder if this is true Black and White film or if fuji simply re-worked the color film (as has been hinted at) which is causing this. I was a bit disappointed as I did want a true black and white film without any other color tints. Besides the Instax Monochrome, you can print black and white photos onto Color film using the Instax Share SP-1 or SP-2 printers (and selecting the Black and White option). I found the black and white look from the Instax Monochrome was better than the SP-1/SP-2 prints (on color, but printed in black and white) due to the reddish tint I got from the printer. While the black and white option is nice, and I did buy more, I was hoping for a bit more from it. The higher price, mixed with the odd tint was a bit unexpected. LEICA is releasing their own Black and White instax mini film in November 2016 (at a higher price.. approximate 16-bucks for 10 shots) which I'll definitely be trying out. Until then, if you want black and white instax, direct from a camera (not using the SP-1/SP-2 printers), this is your item!

    I love the monochrome Fuji Film. I love the idea, when I discovered that they took this product out for the Fujifilm Instax Mini camera I needed to try it out. One thing that I do advice when or if you decide to purchase this item. Is to choose the correct setting when you photograph outside or cover your flash with black tape. I once tried taking a picture by a white painted wall outside, (and it was sunny). The photo obviously came out to over-exposed. Other than that the film is awesome to for that black and white image.

    This was a lot of fun to play with, and for people comfortable with the settings of the fujifilm you can get some great looking shots. However if you are new to the fujifilm or still getting used to it I would advice holding off on getting these. If you can't properly adjust your camera's settings for the lighting you could wind up with some very dark or overexposed photos.

    The Instax camera is a fun, instant camera and nothing more. It isn't designed to be more, doesn't have the features to be more, and doesn't cost what more does. It's an instant camera that takes instant 2x3 pictures. My daughter loves the camera and the monochrome film for more "artsy" shots of her friends and our dog.

    This is a fun item. Neater and cooler than the old polaroids and more cost effective. The film could be a little cheaper,particularly the black and white, but good clean fun for the kids or the young at heart.

    Got this for my 6 year old daughter for Xmas, she loves it. Was very enthusiastic to take family photos. Unfortunately black n white film that comes with camera sucks. Going to try color film tomorrow (purchased from somewhere else).

    Even though the prints themselves are small, the B&W is neat and looks good taken with my little Instax Mini camera. Unlike the Impossible Project film this really does develop in minutes, with the full image developing in under an hour. Neat.

    Great film. On sale as well so that was a plus. Easy to install and use in the camera. Good quality for an instant camera photo. Love the monochrome.

    This film is very nice, although it feels a bit trickier to work with than the color version. I would definitely make it a point to shoot outside on sunny days with this rather than inside with flash though.

    My daughter enjoys the black/white quality. It’s as good as the color one and the results are great. Especially if you have someone who loves to stick them on the wall this is the one to get.

    It is great to have a B&W option for the Instax camera. The quality is excellent when the exposure is good. I do find you need to be a bit more sensitive to getting a correct then the color film.

    This film fills a niche for the Instax cameras and provides a nice balanced b&w film that edges to the blue side. The size format takes away from the effect a bit but it's what it is with the Instax.

    Good film, wish the picture size was a little bigger and the picture was a bit brighter, but overall, it still take's a decent picture, worth the buy for the price!

    My daughter bought these for her camera so she could take pictures of her hipster friends. Who knew polaroids would ever be a thing again! She likes them.

    I noticed when my daughter would take pictures outside the lighting would be so bright that they didn’t come out too good. The pictures indoors look much better.

    Great and fun. Very different from color. With the right photo moment this can look perfect. I would say really close up portrait photos would work best with this format

    The black and white film is great to use in this modern era. This was a free gift with the Fuji camera purchase. It is quite expensive purchased separate.
