    Hi Mustafa, the only film that you can shoot in your 350 is made by Fuji, namely the Fuji Instant FP-100b, FP-100c, and FP-3000b.

    I looked in many shops in Istanbul when I was there last year and did not find any Fuji Instant. I ended up ordering film from the US, from
    http://www.freestylephoto.biz/ Several other American suppliers carry it, including B&H, Adorama, and Amazon.

    Fuji has a distributor in Istanbul. You might check with them and see if they do import Fuji instant films, or if they can get them for you. Their website is:

    Lots more information about the old Polaroid cameras (including the 350) is here:

    Good luck! Maybe you can turn Istanbul into "Instant"bul


    p.s. Turkey is one of my favorite places in the world. My wife have been there twice and have had a wonderful time each time.
    I'll try to post a few Fuji Instant shots I took with my 250 when I was there last year.

    Thank you , Vdonovan.

    I bought the beast from a street seller for few dollars in a excellent condition. I went to Polaroid Istanbul and they donated me two color packages outdated. Few shots were better than I see with bare eye. You know there are many 1850 era stone facaded banks at the center of the city and stone appeared matchless at the paper. I was a Leitz user for many years and money dissolved and Leicas gone.
    Than I started to interest with Rollei 35 cameras and finally bought a 35S Sonnar.
    But Triotar 35 and Rolleicords are impressed me very much. They are came to life to record lines in a very peaceful contrast. Its a big joy for me to view Triotar galleries and they are purely my selection.
    Than I looked to its lens design and its a 3 element in 3 places design. I discovered Tessar is a attachment a 1 more lens element to the last one. It was very similar to the results of my Polaroid 350.
    Than I learned Polaroid 350 had a three element Cooke Taylor triplet may be same design with Triotar.

    If you visit here next time , stay connected with me. I help you if you need.
    I am waiting your pictures , they must be wonderful.

    Take care ,

    Umut
