Actually I am not really familiar with Instax Mini 20. But based from what I know it also uses Instax Mini Film, since the film area and image area is same with Mini 7s, 25s and 50s. I came across this article online, I am hoping that somehow it will help you :)

Hi! I just inserted my first lot of film into a new Instax Mini 7S and shot the first "blank shot" to remove the cover but have just realised that I actually may want to use some other special character film for an event coming up soon... So I was just wondering if I can remove this plain film before it is used with it still remaining unexposed while I use up the special character film? In other words, can I switch film packets while keeping them unexposed for future use? Thanks! :D

Hi Megan,

As soon as you've taken the 1st shot (blank shot) you can't remove/replace it with new film. The blank shot serves as the protection for the films to remain unexposed. It is better that you consume all the films first before inserting a new one.

Anyways there are more ways to decorate your plain film and make it as colorful as the character film. You may use pens and sleeves in this case.

Hope this helps.

Hi! Should i remove the battery when the camera is not in use? or is it okay to just leave it in the camera?

Either way it will do no harm to your camera. Removing it will make it's life longer but even if not you can still use it for at least a year. I've been using my camera since February 2012 and it's batteries has never been replaced/removed up to this moment. The batteries still works perfectly! :)
