Polaroid 600 picture

When it comes out it is gold on both sides of the picture and the only part that develops is the center that is in the shape of an egg. Thanks

How cheap can you get the film for a polaroid 600 and where

There is, and never has been, cheap film for the Polaroid 600, it was always an expensive way to take photos. If you see it cheaply online then it's usually unusable and a waste of money, but usually it sells for ridiculously high prices.

Original Polaroid 600 film is long-expired and a real gamble as the chemicals may have leaked or dried out and the built-in battery is usually flat. Refrigerated photo packs will definitely have dead batteries as cold kills them even faster.

There is only one supplier of freshly manufactured compatible film now, The Impossible Project. You can buy direct from the company or from a few other suppliers, but the few retail stockists worldwide tend to charge a lot more for it as people will pay for the convenience of instant gratification.

Please read all the information you can on the company website before ordering as there are some important differences between their products and the original Polaroid-manufactured material. The main differences are that you only get 8 photos per pack, not 10, and that the material must be sheltered from light as it develops. It's also not anywhere near as fade resistant, so either scan the images you wish to retain or buy their new Dry Age kit which dries out the chemicals in the photo so they're no longer active. The colour film also uses different dyes so will not look the same as the original colour images.

Polaroid 600 Camera, won't take a picture.

How old is the film in it?

Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).

If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.

I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.

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.

Pictures have brown instead of color look, why

You have a bad film pack. Replacing the film pack with a new one should fix the problem. Nothing in the camera can change the color of a picture. The camera can over expose pictures (wash out the picture), under expose pictures (dark pictures), or the picture can be out of focus (blurry).
