  • looks like a pretty nice camera. i looked them up. i think they cost about 50 new. my mom uses a poloroid and she loves it. i think the film for it cost about $10 or so. So realy its up to you whether or not it's worth it, and how much pictures you will take. It's a lil more expensive then digital cameras because of the cost of prints. But if you want instant photos then it looks like a good one. :O)

  • I wouldn't buy it. Check on the price for the picture things, and even if they are still made. It would probably be less expensive to just get a digital camera.

  • I wouldn't get a Polaroid. The film is very expensive ($55 for 10 pictures on Amazon) because it is not currently being made. I believe they're supposed to start making the film again, so prices may come down.

  • I could be wrong (you'll have to search around), but I thought they stopped making the cartridges (film) for polaroid cameras a long time ago.
