    I was Halloween costume shopping today, and instead of buying what I was out to get, I got 2 instant cameras. 1 Polaroid Spirit 600 Land camera, and this Kodamatic Champ instant camera.

    They both seem to work fine, but neither have flashes. I am confused about the kodamatic for 2 reasons.
    1. when I click the shutter, there is a red light, a small click, and it shoots these out:

    I assume I am doing something wrong, or the film is just way outdated?

    2. I cannot figure out if this stuff is made. I assume its not, but I called Kodak, and they said that there was a lawsuit between them and polaroid and kodak does not make it because they lost. I called polaroid, and they "dont make film for kodak cameras"

    So anyone know about this thing?

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but I am 90% sure polaroids have been discontinued.

    I mean the film itself has been discounted :( Which makes it very difficult to use one unfortunately. ;)

    Fuji still makes an instant film that works in Polaroid cameras.

    Because they are shifting focus to Digital P&S cameras I do believe.

    So the film for my kodak camera is no longer being made, yes? Also, I work at walgreens and we are still getting polaroid 600 in our orders. I just bought a pack today
