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!

Where do the batterys go in a 600 camera


I presume that you're asking about the Polaroid 600 series instant camera and not a Sony product (as per the title).

The battery is built into the photo pack, so that you get a fresh battery with each pack and have no risk of running out of power halfway through an expensive photo pack.

All original Polaroid photo packs are now so long out of date that they have flat batteries and so are useless unless the camera is modified to accept an external power supply. Some sellers claim to have kept the packs fresh buy storing them under refrigeration: this will extend the life of the photo chemicals but cold kills batteries even faster.

If you want guaranteed fresh film with a good battery then your only choice is to buy the newly manufactured material by The Impossible Project. Note that this is a replacement for the original Polaroid product, not a copy, so it only has 8 shots per pack rather than the original 10, and the material performs differently. See their website for full details, but a major difference is that it fades far more rapidly, so scan any image you wish to keep permanently or consider buying their new Dry Age Kit.

I hope my answer has been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my reply.

Looking for film for sun 660 Polaroid instant camera


Polaroid announced several months ago that they would discontinue manufacturing instant film. This is because of their move to digital cameras. If you really are in need of this film, some may be available from peers on EBay, but Polaroid itself no longer manufactures it.

What kind of batteries does the Spirit 600 Polaroid camera take? Where is the slot for the batteries? Where is the power switch? How do I take pictures with it?


The battery is in the film cartridge if there is no power battery must be dead. Polaroid has stopped making instant fill a couple of years back. Each film catridge came with a non rechareable and non replaceable battery. You may be able to hunt down some old cartridges, but finding a working battery could be impossible.

I have a polaroid pdc 2070 digital camera, im trying to install to a new pc but i cant find the driver cd. where can I get a free download of this driver?


I am going to assume you mean 3070, as the heading is 3070 and there is not a 2070 listed on Poloroid's Support site.

Anyway, below is a link to the 3000 series cameras download page. The driver for the 3070 is the 4th block down.
