    Polaroid 600 film?

    I'm new to the site... so uhhh, hi! :]
    Anyway, I just recently bought a Polaroid 600 from eBay for an extremely cheap price... Although, I think I should have done a little more research before I jumped the gun a bought one so fast...
    The reason for this being that there is absolutely no way that I'm going to pay 30 bucks for ten pictures... That's outrageous... haha. Impossible project is cheap, I guess... but still... friggin' insane.

    PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS A WAY TO GET SOME FILM FOR AN AFFORDABLE PRICE! D:

    Sorry but that is the price. Fuji sells some instant film but none is compatible with the 600 series (as far as I know) and the price is about the same. There is a reason all of those Polaroid cameras sell for so little.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    The Polaroid films are expensive. Hopefully, the film will come down from the Impossable film priced at 21 USD. If you look on ebay, you may be able to get film there. The Impossable Project is also currently selling actual Polaroid stock too until they run out of what they have in their warehouse.
