I recently came across a polaroid land camera 600.
Do these things take batteries? It has a used file cartridge in it. I want to get some film and see if it works. It looks almost new (besides dust) and it in a ratty box.
This is the film you'll want. https://shop.the-i....com/shop/film/600
yes it's pricy, but get yourself 2-3 packs.
When you get it, put the first pack into the camera, if it ejects the black card, that's good, then go and take a shot, works excellent....if it doesn't just take the camera and black card into a light tight space, turn out the lights remove the film pack and reinsert the black card and go find another camera.
Another thing that could happen is the camera will just spit out all eight shots at once.
Another option if you fancy a 4 hour drive is visit the Impossible Project Space at 425 Broadway, New York, NY. They may even look over your camera for ya!
