As it happens, you can now buy newly manufactured black and white photo packs from The Impossible Project.

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.

Brand new 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!

Where can i buy a polaroid film in the philippines?


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'd be highly unlikely to get in-date Polaroid film, since the last they made was in 2006, expiring in 2009. It's likely you got some that's been repackaged by an unreputable dealer and it's got an expired battery pack. Or, you've gotten something completely uncompatable with a 600 camera. If your film says anything except 600 on the pack, it's not the same thing - ie 669, 667, 668, etc.

600 film comes out with verticle streaks and no picture

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

Which film is best for the Polaroid One Step 600 Film Camera


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.

Again, the only CURRENT, in-date, usable film for Polaroid 600 is made by TIP, available thru their website. There are some scumbags out there online selling old Polaroid film they've re-dated and selling it as current and fresh film - it is not. The newest Polaroid brand film expired in 2009. Buyer beware.

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

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
