Question about Polaroid One600 Pro Instant Camera

1 Answer

When I take a picture with my Polaroid amigo 620 the film is extremely underexposed..I don't know if this is typical of the 600 film or not being as old as it is now. If there is a solution, how do I fix this problem? I could not find a forum for the exact model so I used this one since they take the same film. Thanks

Unfortunately all bets are off as far as Polaroid 600 photo packs are concerned as they're all so long out of date making their behaviour very unpredictable. Almost all of them now have flat batteries and cannot be used without a modified camera. Refrigerated photo packs will have the freshest chemicals and will respond fairly predictably when they get to room temperature but as cold kills batteries they all definitely need to be used on cameras modified to accept an external battery.

Your problem may therefore be due to old photo chemistry, but it can also be affected by the temperature you've been taking photos at and also if you have the camera lighten/darken control set to darken.

If you have the camera settings correct and are using the camera within the normal temperature operating range then you may wish to try the brand new photo packs which are available from The Impossible Project. Presently they're only available in monochrome and the material is far more temperature sensitive and far less fade resistant than the original material, but their website gives details as to how you can make the images last longer. Personally, I scan them and deliberately set the camera to overexpose the pictures: a good modern scanner can still pull an incredible amount of detail from overexposed images which is revealed by software like Photoshop.

I hope that my free answer has been of use and has given you additional options to fix your problem. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

My polaroid camera won't eject the film. Are the cameras broken or is the battery dead?


When you take a picture of darkness, are you using flash or uprating the film ?
More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable. The chemicals within the film pack will have deteriorated over time, and it is my guess that they may well have leaked into the film pack's internal mechanism, thus preventing the photos being ejected. Try again with fresh film.

600 film comes out with verticle streaks and no picture


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

It's likely your issue is that the chemistry in the film and pack is simply no longer useful.

History of polaroid 600 quality.


It's probably more an issue of how/where that one image was taken in relation to the others than it is an issue of the physical condition of that one photo.

Different lighting conditions can fool the in-camera light meter and cause a photo that is either too light or too dark, and this is probably that happened. Or, sometimes someone doesn't notice and their hand/finger is over the electric eye. Generally if an image is "bad", it'll be dark or non-existant on Polaroid cameras, because of the process they use.

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.

It sounds like either your rollers are dirty or damaged, or your film/chempak is simply beyond it's useable life.
