Re: Shackman multishot 102 Polaroid

Pick up an old Polaroid camera that took 100-series film. The back will contain the film rollers, which are pretty much swappable. Something like a Polaroid Super Swinger III should be cheap and easy to find on ebay.

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.

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.

When people say I need film or photo paper for the polaroid, is the film the same as the photo paper?

The polaroid One Step uses what is called pack film. It is layers of paper with chemicals sandwiched between, After exposure, the fild is pulled out between rollers that spread the chemicals over the photo paper. When seperating the photo from the paper covering, the chemicals are taken away with the discard.

The battery in the film pack may be dead, or the camera is broken. Take the film pack out and replace it. If the camera does not reset then the camera is gone.

Adapt a Hassie 500el/m to a Imacon ixpress back V 4.7

The Hasselblad ELM does not need adapting to use the Imacon or hasselblad digital back  the following backs fit on the ELM and can be triggered with a cable that should be supplied with the back. 
Hasselblad V96c 16mp square format back  Hasselblad CFV 16mp square format back with CF slot Hasselblad CFVII 16mp square format back with CF slot + larger screen
the following backs will work but need to have a V adapter plate fitted to the back 
96c 16mp square format back  132c 22mp 645 format back  528c 22mp 645 format back with Multishot option CF-22 22mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-22 MS 22mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option CF-39 39mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-39 MS 39mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option

When fitting and digital back to an older camera the best advice is to get the camera body serviced to ensure that the back mount is correct as the digital backs require a better fit than the film backs did. If the mount is off it will cause back or front focus.

How old is the film in camera & when did you put in the film?

Polaroid's battery is built in with the film package.
If the package is old or been in the camera for a long time battery may be low or dead.

Try changing film out.

Good Luck! Hope this helped. Please rate.
MSG back if you need more help.

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.

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.
