    I kinda want to get a polaroid camera before it dies out. I dont want to spend more than like maybe $40 on it. Does anyone know what kind I should be looking for? I work at walgreens and they have one thats like $40. I havent really looked at it though.

    why not check to find out which types of fuji films are available for use in the future. i.e. type 100 is similar to 69 polariod film.

    that way you will get a camera that can be used as film will be available, (or so we hope.).

    if you check at the store and get the model number and then go on polariod's website it sh ould tell you which type of film fits the camera; if the box doesn't tell you. then find out which fuji films are a fit.

    Sounds good. I was also wondering if there were any polaroids with manual settings similar to an SLR? I thought I saw one somewhere with a zoom lens.

    Polaroid did make some models with manual settings but they cost
    considerably more than $40 and some of these have to be converted
    for use with modern film before they can be used. There are also many
    conventional film cameras with manual controls that will also accept a
    Polaroid back (so Polaroid film can be used with them) but, again, these
    are pricey.

    i was just at a goodwill store and they had two Polaroids for under $5.

    One still had the empty film cartridge in it, the flash fired and the motor spun.

    If you want to get in on the cheap, thats the way to go.
