    Q's please on the Polaroid 600SE

    Finally found a killer deal on this after looking for about 100 years.

    Now, If I was to use the Fuji FP-3000B film in the back, Can I remove the pack half way thru and insert for example my pack of FP-100B?

    Also, I understand they make a 120 film roll back for this that can be switched to 6x6, 6x7 and 6x9. Is that really correct. If so, that's pretty nifty.

    Thanks for any help.

    You can't remove the pack from the actual polaroid holder without losing a frame or two depending on what light you took the pack out in. The holder's themselves are really easy to source, I think that the name of the holder is a Polaroid 73. The 120 back that can be switched between 6x6 the other formats is actually kind of hard to find, the 6x7 and 6x9 backs are easier to find and more affordable as well.

    Removal of film mid-pack will result in the loss of one picture. These cameras do not have a darkslide.

    Thanks guys. I'll get seperate backs as the film being about $1 a frame is much to wasteful

    P.S. Just double checking.... with two backs, I can remove the back between shots and put a new back on correct? Thanks again.

    Yes they have darkslides. If you have a dark closet you can change packs and store one in a lightproof bag or something, but this is very inconvenient. Does anybody know the model number of the medium format back for the 600SE?

    It's the Polaroid 73. No idea the official numbers though.
