Polaroid instant camera film

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.

Re: Polaroid instant camera film

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?

my advice: trash it!

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.

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?

Thanks for using Fixya. Good luck.

I did find a site that sells the $24.50 a pop!

You may find some additional info there too.

Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture

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

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.

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.

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

this website will have everything you need and more

Polaroid One Step Camera

give it a try, the batteries come with the film,so if it was stored high & dry it's probably good. polaroid pack should still be around. they stopped making polaroid camera's and film.
