    hey,
    i picked up a Polaroid Land Camera Model 80 highlander at a flea market. The film it was originally intended to use is impossible to find anywhere. Would there be a way to use some 120? Any other suggestions welcome.

    Not quite the exact same camera, but if the original film is similar, then this might be a good start:

    This one also looks similar, and a bit better executed, IMO:

    If you get it working, post some pics; I wouldn't mind giving this a shot some day.

    The Model 80 used the old Polaroid roll film, long out of production.

    Short of performing major surgery on the camera, it's pretty much a display
    piece only.

    A good reference for Polaroid is called The Land List located here.
