Spoiler: They’re both exactly the same. Recently Andrew bought me the new Polaroid 300, a cute little instant camera similar to the older ones, just with a new shape and new photo dimension. Unlike its square predecessors, the new Polaroids are wallet sized and shaped. I didn’t realize how much fun I’d have with it until I started using it. The Polaroid brand film pack is quite pricey, $10-$11 for 10 exposures.
I zoomed through my first pack and LOVED IT. I must admit, watching the chemical process develop the image within seconds always gets me. This film, it being Polaroid brand, beat the pants off of the Impossible film. For a review I did of that go here.
Anyways, I definitely dig this film. Being the cheapo that I am, I searched the internet for a cheaper price. I came across Fuji Instax brand at 20 exposures for around $12-$14, much better. My question was would it work in my Polaroid? Fuji makes a camera that is EXACTLY the same. The only difference is that one says Fuji and one says Polaroid. It’s the same camera. Both are priced between $60-$70. So yeah, it works. I don’t know why it was so hard to find a straight answer to this in the far corners of the internet but it was. I decided to make your life easier and just flat out tell you – Instax film will work in the Polaroid 300 and Polaroid 300 film will work in the Fuji Instax.

There you have it. 🙂
