Now that film is being made for the old Polaroids again (even though it is a little expensive), I've been thinking about getting an old 600 and a 101 land (maybe not that exact model, but something similar) to play around with. I think the 600 would be easier and more fun. I was wondering if anyone has had experience in buying them and what I would need to look out for since all the cameras will be used. I know how to check most things on the old fold out ones, but there doesn't really seem to be any way to test the non folding ones other than loading some film up. Tips for shooting with them are also welcome.

I have a converted 110B that can take the 3-1/4 by 4-1/4 peel-apart film, and a Mamiya Press Universal that also takes that film when used with the 75 mm and 127 mm lenses (the other lenses don't cover the full frame).
