What lovely memories must be stored. I am quite happy to offer my services to convert these movies to DVD. Whilst most companies would not touch Polavision cassettes, I am able to do this no problem.  Please contact me regarding quantity, etc. and I will give you a reasonable offer.

Is it still possible to get film for thexample Polaroid 95a cam eras. And do the batteries come with the fI'll as they do in their current instant cameras

They haven't made the roll film for these cool old cameras in a long time but there are conversion instructions online that let you adapt it to use available pack film. Check it out here:

Photo Dates

These were added at the time of development. The digital technology did not exist to build the capacity into the camera.

I want to buy a polaroid polavision land camera that takes small cass. I was wondering how difficult it is to find cass. tapes and to get them put on dvd??? I also was wondering if the videos give you that...

Polavision is a totally dead instant movie system which was discontinued over thirty years ago. If you can still find any original unused film cassettes they will very likely be useless even if they have been kept refrigerated for all of that time. Whether the camera will work reliably on your hard to get film will also be highly questionable.

Unless boxed and in absolutely mint condition, complete with all original accessories, the camera is utterly worthless. If it is in factory fresh condition then it's still likely to be near-worthless unless collectors are competing to buy it.

As you plan to convert any film you shoot to a digital format anyway, you'll be far better off using a modern digital video camera and then using software to create the old amateur home movie look that you want.

I have an old Polaroid Land Camera model 95A. I need help with the "anatomy" of this camera. Where is the shutter button, and what is the red switch on the back for?

It's been a long while since I played with a 95A, so rather than making guesses you may wish to click here for a free user manual. The red switch was to release the film to allow the photo to be pulled out after being taken.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance to you and that you're able to briefly spare the time to rate my answer.

Polaroid 600 Camera, won't take a picture.

How old is the film in it?

Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).

If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.

I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.

How do i fix my instant polaroid camera it just stoped working it is old do i need a new one

Those cameras run on integral film cassettes which contain the film and the battery. If you have a working cassette in your camera and it does not work then it is likely to be a battery problem. In which case you need a new cassette(long discontinued and are quite expensive). If your cassette is fine, then your camera is broken(less than 5% probability, these cameras don't brake on their own). In which case, there is nothing you can do but get a new one on eBay or Amazon. Like I said, these cameras don't just stop working, they are built to last for centuries(i still use Land cameras from 1950'). Do not throw your camera away, though, As it may still have a chance to be used again. The Impossible Project is attempting to make a new integral film cassette for 600 Model Polaroids which will be fresh and of similar quality to discontinued Polaroid 600 film. Should be any day now.

Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture

Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck

Polaroid Pictures

Hello dapnoh1969,   I also have old negatives, prints and Polaroids. I invested some money into an Epson Perfection scanner and am now copying all my neagtives, slides, Polaroids, prints to my computer. I also had to buy a larger external harddrive to save all my pictures, but the results are great. If you don't feel like investing into a scanner and other peripherals, may I suggest your local photo lab. They could probably drum scan your Polaroids into 100 MB Tiff's and blow them up to poster size. The last idea is a bit more expensive. Hope this helps.
