The previous answer is incorrect. Photo packs are being newly manufactured by The Impossible Project, although they are currently in monochrome only.

Old expired Polaroid 600 photo packs are best avoided. The batteries are usually totally dead now (or nearly so) and the photo chemicals will be stale and produce unpredictable results. The only exception is if the photo packs have been stored refrigerated from new, but cold kills batteries so although the chemistry may be fine, the photo pack can only be used on a camera which has been DIY modified to use an external 4.5v battery pack. The other problem with refrigerated packs is that you have no guarantee as to when it was stored that way or even whether it was stored that way at all.

Photo packs by The Impossible Project are made in the same factory as the original material using the same machines, but the product itself had to be re-invented to use currently available chemical and dye supplies. If you read the information on their website you'll learn all about the consequential limitations and advantages of the material.

I hope that I have provided you with a clear explanation and practical options to solve your problem. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

In case you haven't heard, Polaroid has discontinued manufacturing instant film. Your camera is now a conversation piece that doubles as a paperweight.

SOURCE: Is there any substitute for

Photo packs are being newly manufactured by The Impossible Project, although they are currently in monochrome only. Current pricing is similar to the last retail prices when Polaroid 600 film was in production; it has always been a very expensive way to take photos but the prices now charged for remaining unguaranteed and largely unusable photo packs can be truly extortionate.

I have an old Polaroid Impulse camera I want give to my grandson. I just want the flash to work. Where do I put the batteries? He's only 2, he doesn't need film! Debbie


The batteries for Polaroid 600 series cameras are located inside the film pack. Polaroid discontinued manufacture of their film in 2006, a company called The Impossible Project has began limited production of some of this type of film but it's selling for about $20/10 photos.

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.

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.

95 Film Polaroid captiva SLR


You can find Polaroid 95 or 600 on Ebay. It is very expensive. A lot of 600 exposures will run $1500.00 or ther was 40 exposures for $200.00. Needless to say it isnt made anymore. The battery is actually in the film pack. No film, no working camera.

Polaroid 600 instant battery change


The batteries that power the 600 format cameras are in the film pack, not in the camera. When you insert a new film pack, you're installing new batteries at the same time. hope this helped
