I’ve been getting a lot of hits from Google searches like “instax mini 25”, “how much for the instax”,”instax mini manila” and a number of people have actually emailed me asking where can they get a limited edition Hello Kitty Instax Mini 25 just like mine.
Unfortunately, my hubby bought it in Taiwan when he went there for a business trip and to be honest, I really have no idea if it’s available here in Manila. You can, however, buy online and have it shipped if you’re *really* desperate.
But I’ve been researching and I’ve come across this local website that sells Fuji Instax Cameras and other Toy Film Cameras as well.
The website is the Lomo Loco Shop.
If you want an Instax Mini though, you can order from Instax Manila and Polaroid PH
Lomo Loco Shop for the price of PHP4,000 and prices range from Php4,000 to Php7,000 depending on which model you get. The shop has it in Blue, Pink, Choco and White. You can also buy Instax Mini Films but I find them a bit pricey at PHP780 Php800 for a Twin Pack (2 packs of 10 films).
If I remember correctly, I bought my Instax Mini Films at 220NT (Php330) per pack in Taiwan. But THEN you’d have to go to Taiwan. Or if you know anyone from Taiwan, you can ask them to ship it here to Manila. It’s also available in Singapore. I remember seeing a couple of shops selling films in Sim Lim, though I wasn’t able to ask how much the films were.
But if you’re not going to Taiwan or Singapore any time soon, then
PHP780 PHP800 seems reasonable enough if you factor in travel fare or shipping fee.
Aside from selling cameras, the website also sells films for Holga and Diana cameras.
