    I have wanted to do a polaroid guestbook for our AHR in July and have put off buying the camera itself! Ooops..yeah I knew they were stopping making them but I had no idea that they would be so hard to come by already.

    Anyway I just found one but I thought I would warn those of your who are thinking about doing this to go buy one soon! Amazon had the latest one on sale for $150 or something but I found one in stock at a local Wal-Mart for $40. The film seems easy enough to buy though which is nice!!

    the film is going to stop being made as well, i read somewhere recently that it was hard to find depending on where youre located.

      luckily a friend of mine had the camera so i was able to borrow that. as for the film, i found it on ebay. i paid $40 for four packs of ten. make sure you know the expiration dates before you buy!

        I too found this out when looking for an instant camera for my photo guestbook. I bought the camera on Ebay for $37. The film is now running pretty expensive on Ebay. I found a seller who was willing to sell me 3 packs of film for $80. Needless to say, I declined!

        Staples is selling the film 4 packs (40 pics) for $47 or so. Good luck in your search!

          after your wedding you can post it to sell on amazon & maybe even make a profit.

            I ordered all my supplies to do the photo guest book today. Wish I had done it earlier in the year, but that what I get for procrastinating. At least I got it- and all the suppplies!!

            I recommend buying now if you want to do this! I'll be happy to sell my camera after the wedding (assuming it is still in working condition- I don't want to sell something broken)....

                I know these are still available but I thought of an alternative that might work for some and wanted to post.

                Many of the digital cameras have seperate docking stations that you can print out photos instantly. I know we use them at my work and the pictures actually come out really clear. Digital cameras are getting sooo cheap now that this may be a less expensive option if you shop around. Just a thought.

                  That is a really good idea

                    We are using a digital camera and I will just print them when I get home. All they will do is sign our guest book. Before we leave I will attach the little picture corner thingies in the book so they know where not to sign.
