^Fuji FP-100C and FP-3000B, each less than $10/pack at B&H and better in every way than Polaroid's own film. Don't bother with expired Polaroid unless its something special (like ID-UV), prices are crazy.




"Good news is, the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show a median latency of forty-four point six years, so if you're thirty or older, you're laughing. Worst case scenario, you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face."

I've honestly never used a Polaroid. I picked it up for 50 cents at a thrift store, so i figured it was worth it!
I'll definitely look into that film. Thanks much!

EDIT:
Stupid question.. Does this film work with any Polaroid camera then? At least any of the older kinds? I'm not sure if that's the exact model i actually have. I need to check when i get home.

The two films will work in any camera that looks like your 103... the Automatic 100/200/300/400 series and "second-gen" Propack/EE100/Reporter cameras. There are backs for other cameras to use it as well.

You will also likely need to do a battery conversion to that 103 so it takes 2 AAA batteries. Very easy to do; the battery holder is at Radio Shack for $2, and just follow these instructions:

Older FP-100C shot but I finally bleached the negative last night. Much better.

Hey, I wanted to ask how you all scan your Polaroids! What settings do you use!?

I picked up a polaroid and shot with it, but scannign has been a little funny-

I've been scanning on the epson v600.

Like a dumbass I noticed there were negatives on the back of the polaroid after I already through them out!

I guess this would be the best route for scanning...

Any suggestions for DPI and scanning settings would be appreciated!

I think mine are looking like sh!t, Thanks

^I have the same scanner; you want 1200dpi. I use the software that came with the scanner; unsharp mask is on medium, and CR is occasionally accurate but usually isn't.
