Any websites that are selling it?
I was looking for was someones personal preference because mine have ran out, and this website is often a tool for people who are learning, like me, to get quick answers from people who know their stuff.
There are a lot of different kinds of polaroid. What kind specifically are you looking for?
Sorry I should have specified, I totally forgot. I am looking for both 600 instant film. I'm down to my last box. and then I have a polaroid back for my bronica etrsi that I recently got as a gift and I have no clue what kind of polaroid film to load into it or where to get it.
Well seeing as Polaroid are out of the instant film business, your chances of finding some are approaching zero. Fuji do make some, so have a look at BH Photo for some, that's assuming you are in the USA.
For 600, you may need to check here:
For the bronica back, I'm guessing that there is a Fuji instant film that fits:
Bob, thanks I will check BH Photo
and Thanks a ton Josh
Josh hit the nail right on the head. Polapremium is a great place to still buy Polaroid film. The Fuji is actually quite nice if you are looking for Packfilm.
I looked at polapremium. 20 sheets of 55 for 150 Euro. Crazy.
Unique Photo in NJ just released this press release:
Fairfield, N.J., March 30, 2009 - Unique Photo, Inc., has received the very last shipment of Polaroid film ever made this week. The shipment arrived at Unique’s warehouse on March 30, 2009. Polaroid, founded in 1937 by Edward H. Land, was most famous for its instant film cameras, which reached the consumer market in 1948 and continued to be the company’s flagship product until its decision last year to cease all production in favor of digital photography products. Unique Photo is the largest film supplier in the United States and has enjoyed its 62 year relationship with the Polaroid Corporation and looks forward to helping it's loyal customers moving forward with their instant photographic needs.
They do mail order: http://store.uniquephoto.com/e/index.php/
I also saw Polaroid 600 at my local Walmart.
Derek your choices are: Fuji FP-100B - ISO 100 B&W, Fuji FP-100c ISO 100 Color or FP-3000B ISO 3000 B&W. This is 3.25" x 4.25" pack film same as 600 series Polaroid. Check B & H, Freestyle and Adorama.
Next year, The Impossable Project will hopefully be a great source for 600 film. http://www.theimpossibleproject.com/
CVS still has it in West Newton. It's the European one though and has a sticker on it saying "final edition." It's obscenely priced at $19.99 US. I just looked at Adorama and that's even higher. You might want to think about a packfilm camera. You can do transfers and lifts and lots of cool stuff and it is (the fuji type, the same thing) cheaper than the integral 600 film.
I think B&H has the best price. Anything under $20 for a single suddenly seems like a bargain.
It's sad to think, when only about 5 or 6 years ago you could have walked into pretty much any store and bought a pack of Polaroid film for $10
And yeah, Patrick, I've seen "The Impossible Project" website, and I really hope they can do it. I'll definitely support them.
