Not a chance. They are completely different. Polaroid has also ceased all North American production of instant film.

Does it take batteries


The Spectra AF camera film packs contain the 6V battery that runs the camera. The manual for the Spectra camera is available here: store.polaroid.com/media/document/spectra_af_ug.pdf . See page 21 (page 29 of the PDF). Unfortunately, considering how long these cameras have been available, the film packs may be hard to find.

I hope this helps.

(even new cameras with rechargeable batteries sometimes need a replacement battery pack. The battery can't recharge forever.)

Where is the battery compartment for my spectra 1200ff


The battery is built into the film. Film is no longer available. Old stocks sometimes are sold, but the batteries are long dead and the photo chemicals are usually unusable.

I have the polaroid spectra system that my grandfather had, it still has film in it but doesn't work...is there a battery somewhere? I haven't been able to find it....


The battery for many polaroid cameras is incorporated into the film pack. If the film has been in the camera a long time, the battery may have run down. There isn't any way to replace it. You have to fit a new film with battery, and these films can be hard to find fresh now.

Help Pls... i have a polaroid spectra 1200i i cant find where to load the batteries ?? there is already film inside from the previous owner. but no idea where the batteries go.


Late model Polaroid film cameras used a thin lithium battery incorporated into the film pack. There were no separate batteries. If your camera won't function, perhaps the battery in the film pack has gone bad during long storage, in which case you will need to replace the film pack and won't be able to use the remaining film.

Where does the battery go in a polaroid spectra pro camera?


The film for the camera carries the battery. However, if the film is expired, the camera won't work. Where did you purchase your Spectra Pro? I've been looking for one forever.

Where is the serial number on a Polaroid Spectra Onyx? I've inherited one and want to find serial number. I may sell it on eBay and don't want to chance someone to return a different broken camera to me. I...


I haven't seen a Spectra Onyx for years, so cannot directly answer your question, but with respect, it's not really an issue.

Your camera is obsolete and film is no longer available so they're completely unusable. They weren't popular when new but are certainly not rare either and are only of interest these days to collectors who want them for display only, but even then they must be cosmetically perfect and preferably boxed. Even then they're worth about £10-£15 at most on a really good day. Hopefully you'll be lucky and get more; just sell it as sold as seen with no returns and you won't need the serial number.

Polaroid Spectra 1200si


Check to see if the film is still good because if it is not the built in battery might have died. Check to make sure that the film was going in the correct way and that nothing was blockin the film pack from going in.

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


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
