    I'm trying to figure out what type of camera this is, I feel kind of stupid for asking, but maybe someone might know.

    It's a Polaroid type camera. That's all I really know. =\

    I would really appreciate the help.

    Looks like a fantastic, plastic Holga. They recently began offering a Polaroid back version.

    Awesome, Thanks. Do you know where I can get a good deal on one?

    Click on the Freestyle link at the top of this page, and search for "holga". The traditional Holga uses 120 film and costs about $20. If you glue a $100 Polaroid back to it, it ends up costing $100.

    Any 120 size film will do.

    Get some inexpensive ISO 400 film in 120 size. I'd probably avoid slide film.

    What's wrong with slide film? Just Curious.

    Slide film requires more precise exposure than negative film, and Holgas aren't exactly precise. ;)
