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

How do i turn the flash off


I don't know the particular setup of this model, but some of my Polaroid a800 cameras actually have 2 triggers--1 main trigger which sets off the camera and flash, and then a smaller trigger just around the main trigger that only sets off the camera--no flash. So, look at the trigger and see if there's a smaller trigger (that looks like part of the main release..

thanks.

POLAROID ONE STEP EXPRESS INSTANT CAMERA


there is no battery in the camera. the battery comes from the film. the film has a battery in it already. you MUST have film in the camera for the light to go on and the flash to go off. all polaroid camera's are the same. you must have the film in the camera for it to work.
