Help with Polaroid 600 film choices & how to use One Step Cameras

I have two Polaroid One Step Cameras and One Polaroid One Step Flash camera and NO instruction booklets!!!I would like to know a few things:How do I use the One Step Flash?  What are those arrows on the front of the camera (gray and white)?  Is it an older version of the One Step?How do I use the One Step cameras?  I see you can slide a plastic tab to do close up pictures, but when I look thru the viewfinder, oh, my!  I can't imagine how it works?!And lastly... I see you can get a variety of 600 Film... different names.Which do you recommend?  I can't remember the names.. is one called Silver and another one Platinum or something? Thank you very much!I was interested in a great AUTOFOCUS polaroid or one that does great far away pictures which also AUTOFOCUS as well as one that will allow me to do emuslion lifts.  Does such a Polaroid Exist?  I have a land camera, but it only allows fixed focusing, and that means CLOSE.  It's limited...

    Are you aware of the fact that Polaroid discontinued ALL film manufacture in November of 2008? I can't advise you on your specific camera or the film types that were made for it, however, I can advise you to buy as much film as you can get your hands on now and store it in your freezer until you need to use it. The cold will prolong its life. When you are ready to use it, let it thaw at room temperature for several hours before breaking the seal.

The flash will work when you put film in. the film has a battery and the camera works off the battery in the film. the arrows make the picture dark or light.
the polaroid spectra onyx made in 1987 is a totally sharp and beautiful looking camera. you also can put filters on the front of it. this camera was used by law enforcement many years ago so it is made very steardy and well. i own one myself and the pictures are perfect everytime. look this camera up on Ebay, you will not be disappointed.

also, here is a website for you to look up film information
polaroids.theskeltons.org

this website will have everything you need and more

With what can i cover a polaroid flash


The Polaroid 600 doesn't have an automatic flash. To use the flash, insert the flash bar into the flash socket. To turn off the flash, remove the flash bar. Refer to the manual.
If you have a different camera, please reply to this post and give the model number.

I have an old Polaroid Impulse camera I want give to my grandson. I just want the flash to work. Where do I put the batteries? He's only 2, he doesn't need film! Debbie


The batteries for Polaroid 600 series cameras are located inside the film pack. Polaroid discontinued manufacture of their film in 2006, a company called The Impossible Project has began limited production of some of this type of film but it's selling for about $20/10 photos.

Which film is best for the Polaroid One Step 600 Film Camera


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

Again, the only CURRENT, in-date, usable film for Polaroid 600 is made by TIP, available thru their website. There are some scumbags out there online selling old Polaroid film they've re-dated and selling it as current and fresh film - it is not. The newest Polaroid brand film expired in 2009. Buyer beware.

My daughter bought a Polaroid One Step camera at a yard sale, but the battery is dead. Is there a way to change the battery?


Polaroid OneStep cameras have the battery built-in to the film back. If you are using Polaroid 600 film, simply change the film cartridge.

I Have a polaroid 600 camera and whenever i take pictures WITHOUT the flash the picture comes out distorted, is there a way to solve this?

It sounds like either your rollers are dirty or damaged, or your film/chempak is simply beyond it's useable life.
