    New user, please advice on Polaroid!

    Hi! I'm new to this Forum and APUG.org itself, and I would like to ask for your help on this subject..

    I would like to offer a Polaroid to my girlfriend for valentines, the pop out of the bottom instant picture cartridge type, but I'm completely off on these type of cameras. I now they have evolved a lot after the first one, so I would like to ask if anyone could advice me on this purchase.

    I would like something that delivers good quality images, but also it would be nice to be lightweight/small, easy to use (she's not into photography at all), with flash..
    Thank you in advance!

    I would recommend getting a new One600 camera. I bought one a couple months ago and it works fine for its intended purpose. They are fairly inexpensive, about $35 here in the States. My three-year-old grand daughter can use it with a distinctive photographic style.

    DO NOT BUY ANY POLAROID PRODUCTS! First read the news today ( 8 Feb 2008). As reported on nytimes.com, and boston.com, Polaroid announced today that they are ceasing production of ALL instant film products.

    Wow how to kill a product dead in its tracks. There's load of polaroid film out there. Even if you only use it a few times, it's worth it. It's also good to let the market speak for itself. If someone wants the polaroid film and will buy it, someone out there will be more than willing to buy the technology off of polaroid to make the stuff.

    Along Fujifilm's current line of thought, it'd be great if they came out with an sx-70-like folding SLR autofocus instant print camera that did close focusing (less than 2feet)...

    You might want to get your gf a Polaroid disposable 35mm camera, if you can find one anywhere...
