    If you mean this camera ...

    ... you can use Polaroid Type 665, 667, or 669 or any Type 66x film (but not Type 600).

    Polaroid discontinued this film several years ago but you can still
    find unused packs of it on eBay, etc.

    For new film you can use Fuji 100C or 100B film:
    Fujifilm USA | Products | Film | Fujifilm Instant Films


    You will also need a special battery for this camera which will require some searching or improvising. See this discussion:
    Polaroid Land Automatic 100 - Photo.net Large Format Forum

    and this:

    Keep in mind that the model discussed used 3.0v batteries. The earlier models, like the OP's Model 100 use a 4.5v battery. A similar conversion would require three AAA batteries, not two.
