    Er, maybe I've missed another post here but... context please :)

    These are quite different cameras and we don't know what you want them for; to use or just as display pieces? Also since we don't know the asking price we can't say if they're good value or not or which would be the better buy.

    I like the one step ( I have one.) but I wouldn't recommend it as the film has been discountinued by Polaroid. I believe a third party manufacturer picked up production but it is hard to find and expensive.

    I'm with Zaphod though.. not sure what exactly you are asking.
