quick polaroid question

just wondering if anyone has advice on the best place to buy ''polaroid" film?
i just scored an old camera at a thrift shop, it seems in perfect shape and uses the 600 type film.
i know i can get it through the impossible project, but do you know of other places? (maybe even Canadian ones?)
thank you!


  1. Wow, so exciting, I love Polaroid cameras!! I think you'll have to buy the film off Ebay, I know it's really difficult to get in England-in fact I think they may have discontinued them and made a new type of polaroid camera that uses different film. Basically, Ebay is the best place I can think of, my friend buys most of her polaroid film from there.
    Hope you manage to find some!!

  2. I have one of those. Haven't bought film for it in a while, but Black's used to sell them for 19.99 for a pack of ten. Henry's was the only other place that sold them, and they charged 29.99. Polaroid went out of business, but I think some people have tried to bring it back. You could try looking on craigslist, or searching online retailers like adorama, and amazon.

  3. Hi Mel,

    It's Steph from the Words to Shoot By gang. Polaroid film is hard to come by! The main source is The Impossible Project, but if they are sold out, eBay is your best bet. Watch out for sellers who are just trying to make money though! Polaroid goes for crazy high prices there. If all else fails, join the Polaroid group on Flickr and ask around. Sometimes someone may let a pack go for a decent price.

    Good luck and have fun with it!

  4. you can get it a lot of places (even but it's REALLLLLLLY expensive now. like waaay more than it used to be :(
    makes me sad!

  5. Try Shopper Drugs Mart in Canada. If I remember correctly, they carry it!

  6. thanks for the suggestions everyone!
    polaroid film is officially out of production, aside from the folks at the Impossible Project making their own. Ebay prices are insane! approximately $100 for 20 photos. i will hold out until the Impossible Project gets another shipment... then will post the results, of course :)

  7. I don't think they really sell it in stores. Try ebay.

  8. I second the Impossible Project. That is the only place I can find it anymore, and they are often sold out. Film is crazy expensive, but aren't Polaroids fun?

  9. Hi, I'm so glad that I'm not the only one asking that question...Please go to there should be lots of links there, along with a phone number. A while back they announced that they were making the camera and film again (by mid year). By now there should be more information, but please contact polaroid. They should be able to give you information on obtainning film again. It will be exspensive.


thank you for leaving a comment! i love to know what you think :)
