Leica Monochrome Film for Fuji Instax Cameras- £7.97 (Prime) / £11.96 (non Prime) at Amazon

Not going to be of interest to a great many people but it's a good deal for what it is, coming in about 20% cheaper than Fuji's own monochrome film (the cheapest I can find that is £9.50 also from Amazon, and £9.99 or higher everywhere else) and when you're paying for every press of the shutter, saving a couple of quid on every pack definitely helps. While it's Leica branded, the film is made for the Instax Mini format and works with the full range of Instax Mini cameras and not just Leica's £250 monstrosity.

Leica do some amazing lenses, so I'm absolutely trying these! Haven't tried the Instax monochrome so have nothing to compare it to. Thanks for posting!

Well Leica was renowned for cameras and lenses, and Fuji was renowned for film stock. So it feels a bit bizarre that the brands would be used like this. Seems a bit like Tommy Cooper's Stradivarius and Rembrandt

Worth a try though, right?

I shoot exclusively with monochrome film in my Instax (I tend to dislike the results from the colour film compared to the lovely contrasty monochrome film), so I've picked up three packs of the Leica monochrome to start with and will see how they compared. Nobody seems to be sure whether or not they're the same film under different branding, so I'm interested to try it out!

They've got to be the same film stock.
Setting up the production lines for this stuff is horrendously expensive and has a very limited return.
I just finished a cartridge off today - don't bother, pick up the Fuji Mono film. The Leica mono is completely washed out and lacks any contrast or detail. Bit of a shame, you'd hope that you could trust the Leica brand, but give it a miss.
