I have a One Step Land camera and I'm looking to buy film for it. The manual says that it uses SX-70 Land film. I'm only finding old SX-70 film(expired for 30 years!) Can the Polaroid 600 Instant film be used on this camera? The 600's description says that it works with CB-70/71/72 camera backs, but I don't know if the "70" on both refer to the same thing... The camera worked fine last time we used it and I promised my son that I would get him film for it for Christmas. I shouldn't have promised! Thanks for your help.
I guess the films are over-aged! I had many film cameras and two polaroid's. the latter for instant needs. but frankly, with cheap DC's available today, whoelse need a polaroid that films are expensive and difficult to get?

The SX70 film pack contains the battery that allows the shutter to activate. Unfortunately you may have a difficult time finding it. Below are a couple links with some good SX70 info. The second one even has a link to the user guide in PDF format. I think the Q-light was on some of the One Step cameras. is that what you have?
Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck
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.
