This is a Polaroid 600, sometimes called the 'land camera' in an older guise, and this is the film and battery.

See, the battery in this camera comes in the film package. It is on the bottom of it, when you take out the cartridge when you have taken all 10 pictures (it only holds 10), you will see a paper and silver bag left at the bottom. There's your battery.
So if it really is a polaroid 600, when you replace the film, you replace the battery. If the battery quits before you used all 10 prints, there's nothing you can do but replace both of them and waste the rest of the shots.
I have worked with photos for years, and never seen a cartridge with more than 10 prints in it, for that camera. Not saying it's not possible, but I think you'll find there's only 10.
Good luck!

Poloroid 640


Either your camera is broken or those film packs you used have gone bad. I hope it's the later case which can be fixed by using a different film pack. Impossible Project makes new film packs for Polaroid 600 series so better use those than old expired Polaroid film packs.

I have a poloroid camera and need film size 600 and the cost price.


Original Polaroid manufactured film is long out of production and now very expensive and unlikely to work due to flat batteries and stale chemistry. Chemistry may be fresh if the film has been cold stored, but cold kills batteries even faster so such films can only reliably be used in cameras modified to accept an external 4.5v dc power supply.

You can buy new photo packs from "The Impossible Project". Click on the link to see details and prices. Note that this film is not exactly the same as the original material, and if you wish to keep images permanently you must scan them as they will fade quickly.

How to change the battery


Hello,

These types of Poloroid cameras do not have batteries. The batteries are actually included in the film packs. Whenever you replace the film, you will replace the batteries.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Here is a picture of the battery in the film pack:

Battery compartment


Hello,

You won't find a battery compartment. Poloroid instant camera have the battery as a part of the film pack. When you load the film...you get a new battery.

If you have not already found out, the film for these cameras can be pretty expensive.

Thanks for using Fixya.

95 Film Polaroid captiva SLR


You can find Polaroid 95 or 600 on Ebay. It is very expensive. A lot of 600 exposures will run $1500.00 or ther was 40 exposures for $200.00. Needless to say it isnt made anymore. The battery is actually in the film pack. No film, no working camera.

What powers the polaroid 600 camera????????????????????????


The battery for the Poloarid is in the film pack.
Each film pack has enough battery power to shoot the film in the pack.
The problem is that if the pack sits around for too long the battery will die making the film pack useless.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Where do i buy a new batery????


Hello,

Poloroid instant cameras do not have a separate battery. The battery is actually enclosed within the film pack. It is intended to be able to power the camera for the 10 pictures it takes per pack.

For reference, here is a link to the camera manual:

Polaroid 600 instant battery change


The batteries that power the 600 format cameras are in the film pack, not in the camera. When you insert a new film pack, you're installing new batteries at the same time. hope this helped
