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.

Light meter


The light meter in an SX-70 is not adjustable. If the film is overexposed either the film is bad or something is blocking the light meter eye. Look for dust or debris on the eye surface and clean.

I dont know what batteries to use and film to use on my minolta maxxum 70.


The Maxxum 70 uses two 3V CR2 lithium batteries.

The Maxxum 70 can use almost any 35mm film. Color prints, color slides, black-and-white prints. Do NOT use Polaroid instant film or infrared film.

If you need a manual, you can download one at

I purchased a polaroid camera from a 2nd hand store for next to nothing, obviously i wasnt expecting it to function or work at all, it is a one step plus SX-70, i've replaced the batteries in the...


Hi,

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?

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

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

whitehall-bo,
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.
