    Both those appear to be Sx-70. Of course Sx-70 film was discontinued at the beginning of '06. You'd be fairly hard pressed to find the film for it now. You can find a neutral density filter for it, and then you can use polaroid 600 film in the camera. The Sx-70 is a great camera and I got the ND filter for it because so I could keep using it.

    The ND filter is available off of ebay from Japan. Also, strategic loading strategies are involved when trying to fit the 600 in the sx-70 because of some tabs on the 600 package.

    Perhaps your friend would be better to just get a 600 camera. You can buy them at Thrift stores usually for around $5.

    This page on the Polaroid website is a good resource to find which film goes with which camera, and whether it's still continued or not.

    The site alsi has lots of good information about Instant films and Alternative processes.
