    So I purchased two pack film Polaroids at the local Good Will Store for a total of $5. Got an Auto 100 and a 230. Also picked up a canon af35m II for $2 but thats a different story, I love Good Will.

    I made a battery pack out of 3 rechargeable aaa's with some solder and wire.

    Picked up some Fuji fp100c and 100b. The darn cameras work, snapped two test shots today, awesome.

    So the question, Is there a pack film that provides a usable negative? is that what type 55 is? is the negative produced by these fuji films good for anything or is it trash?

    Yes type 55 provide a positive and a negative. It is used in a Polaroid 4x5 type 545 film holder which has rollers that can clamp down on the film as it is pulled out after exposure to squeeze and release the processing chemicals across the surface of the film as you pull it.
