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

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.

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.

Polaroid One Step Close Up film cartridge won't come out


Look to the upper edge of the slot that the film is in. You should find a thin black lip that flaps. Pull on it to remove the empty film box.

Polaroid one step 600


The battery is included in the film pack. If you open the film door you will see the battery contacts in the lower side of the compartment. These line up with the battery holes (looks like foil in the holes) in the film pack. If you have an old film pack and no power the battery in the old pack may be dead.

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
