How are they MORE expensive, you can get an instax mini 10 pack at Walmart for $15 where the Polarood (TIP) film is $24 for only 8... Plus the image quality of the instax is way higher than Polaroid.
Honestly if you are shooting either camera they are really about the look of them more than image quality since all of the instant cameras are pretty bad if you blow them up bigger than their actual size.
Anyway just wondering why you thought TIP was less expensive?

Maybe he is referring to the expired polaroid stuff you can find on ebay and not TIP?
