    I have a Polaroid 210 land camera that I have been using with a pack of Fuji instant film.

    I have heard that the springs that push down on the film packs often push down too hard and make it difficult to pull the paper strips without tearing when you are pulling the photograph out. I have experienced this several times so far and have had to retrieve the photo by opening the back up three times on a single pack.
    I think I've heard this is something that happens when you use Fuji film packs in Polaroid cameras.

    Is there a simple way to remedy this, or is there another problem with the camera?

    Thanks,
    DB

    I have had some problems when using my 350. My others work very well.

    I had the same problem with my 350, but it seems to have gone away now. I did clean the rollers, but I dont think that should have made a difference mechanically.
