    All -
    I am looking for a polaroid camera. I am willing to purchase a gently used one if I can find one. I have been out to Amazon and Ebay but wanted to throw this out to all of you to see if there is something that found a better deal somewhere else or is willing to sell theirs. Also, if someone found one in a local store please let me know where...Walmart didn't carry them.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

      I purchased one about a year ago to photo categorize all of my off-season shoes into clear boxes (yes, I'm OCD.....), and I'm pretty sure I bought mine at Walgreen's. I found these online just now:
      Amazon.com: Polaroid One600 Classic Instant Camera: Camera & Photo
      Polaroid One600 Classic - instant camera

      Good luck! It's funny how cheap these things are, but the film is expensive!!

          Thanks ladies...however from what I'm hearing is that the film is no longer being made and the film that is being sold is more than likely expired and won't work. I'm so sad as I really wanted to have one at the reception for people to take pictures...oh well. I guess I will have to come up with another idea.

            Check ecamerafilms.com

            I bought from them for a polaroid and the film is not even close to expired. They also have a polaroid camera on there that they sell for only $69.95. They have the film to go with it too, so stock up.

              there are many different companies that make them now. Polaroid has a nice small one and I think fuji does too. I started a thread the other day titled "alternative guest book". I dont know how to link it here but you can search it. There is a link there for the fuji camera. they are pretty reasonably priced and much easier than the old ones. You can also get a smal photo printer for your digital camera that works the same way.

                  I heard that the film is going to be discontinued. You can probably get some now for your wedding, but most likely you would not get future use out of the camera.
