Save Polaroid 600 Films!



In the process of digging for laser discs in our storage rooms, my mother had unearthed a diamond --

... well, make that TWO diamonds.

These days, everyone's got a flashy DSLR or a lomo. Because of that, I'm not too excited to get either of them. But even if I'm still sort of hung up on owning a DSLR, I would gladly forego any other analogue camera for a Polaroid 600 series model. These babies I have here have NEVER been used since we got them because the family thought films were expensive (they were gifts).

Nothing says "vintage" more than a Polaroid and I absolutely long to shake-shake a Polaroid picture.

Does anybody out there know how I could get a hold of films for these locally? I've heard that production had ceased, but I know there are still dregs out there.

If you're a Polaroid fan like me, help save the films by going to SavePolaroid.com

wow those are totally awesome! Only true blue photographers have these gadgets now... Polaroid photograph's are Old school's finest, and a new age's envy!
the camera isn't too pricey but
the film would usually cost you more or less 40USD... Films are definitely hard to come by these days. I guess you should ask from the people of the camera club of the ph
