This is an awesome camera that I have cleaned up and tested. It is in excellent working condition. I have tested it with The Impossible Project PZ 600 Silver Shade with a black frame which makes a nice soft black and white Polaroid.

I have cleaned up the camera and lens with rubbing alcohol and a whole lot of Q-tips and cotton balls. The top and bottom of the camera is a little worn in some areas where the material is a somewhat soft material that is better for gripping, but the inside is pristine and there does not seem to be anything that is rusted. I have inspected and cleaned the rollers and moving parts in the camera. This has an autofocus, so it takes the guesswork out of focusing your subject. It works with a radar, so be careful taking pictures out of windows and clear panels, because the sonar will bounce back from that point. This camera also has an exposure compensation switch. The viewfinder is still on the camera. Many older Polaroids have long lost it, but this one is still intact! I have taken some photos with this camera and they are awesome! I mainly took pictures indoors with the flash. You can see in the last picture a Polaroid that I took with this camera.

This camera does not come with a manual, but you can find it here:

You can find film from the Impossible Project in Black and White and in Color

http://the-impossible-project.com

I would also go over their individual websites that talk about the film itself. I went through a lot of film before I started to get the hang of it. I would read the following:

Please let me know if you have any questions.


**** All of my "film tested" cameras are tested with actual film, and not an empty film cartridge to see if it powers up and goes through the motions. I am making sure that everything works (shutter, mechanics, spreader bars, etc.. ), and that the pictures come out and are able to develop. Film is not cheap so that is why the cameras are a little more expensive than some other shops. I am giving you the peace of mind that the camera is definitely going to work when you put unused film in it! ***
