    Anyone using one of the dirt cheap one600 Polaroids?

    Tempted to order one for $35-40 - seems like it should be positively Holga-esque.

    Actually it is better than the Holga, but it still has a plastic fixed focus meniscus lens that derives its image quality mostly from a small aperature (f/12 I believe).
    Why pay $35 to $40? I bought 25 packs of recently expired 600 film the other week for EUR 50 (about $ 70) and got the camera thrown in.

    @celluloidpropaganda: I agree, you should be able to get it a lot cheaper than that. I recently bought 2 Polaroid cameras for EUR 5; granted, they are secondhand, and it's not the model you mention, but still... I wouldn't pay $ 40 for it.

    @vanspaendonck: 25 packs for EUR 50? That's a good deal! Is there any more where that came from? Where did you find them?

    I'm using one and like it a lot. The 600 film has some great effects when overexposed. Here's a studio snap...

    I went to go buy a one600 last night and found out that they aren't being made anymore - at least, no longer in Japan; I don't know about the rest of the world. My favorite store had a sign saying the one600 and one600 Ultra are no longer being produced, although 600 film is.

    Not sure if I should bother looking for one now ...
    Those who know, shoot film

    Hrm odd. They have party packs of polaroid cameras and the special edition silverbordered film over here in Boots (national drugstore/chemist chain). I'm not sure if the camera that comes with it is a one600 though. Check other shops? My friend bought some, what i'd call "normal", polaroid camera for me at a jumble sale. Actually I was at a green room party in BBC Television Centre the other week and someone had actually brought a polaroid and a stack of 600 film!

    They're still for sale through their online shop in the UK. And I think Polaroid have recently released a "new" 600 film that replaces the old one.

    I have the previous model I think, mine is just called Polaroid One. Main difference is that you can disable the flash on mine, one the One 600 it always fires(you can cover it with your hand)
    I like mine a lot, it`s pretty wide angle and give sweet results with regular 600-film. A few snaps from it:

    I just got one of these for my birthday I wanted one just to play with and it's been fun so far! I don't recall exactly what model I have, but it had a little "lighter" and "darker" adjustment on it. The only thing I'm not excited about is that the flash is on all the time. That's okay, my girlfriend did exceptionally well for the little description I gave her. I may have to do flash surgery in the near future though.
