    Polaroid for a teenager

    Unless it has changed, instax should be an integral type instant film. So far, Fuji and TIP are the remaining players of the integral instant film?

    ...SHould get myself into instant photography someday, it's attractive (except for the wallet) and magic.
    I stand corrected then...

    Yes, and it is basically the old Kodak Instant Print Film. Kodak had licensed the Asian production to Fuji and Fuji was never sued by Polaroid, so the product continues.

    Yes and they produce film for the old Polaroid pack cameras which is peel apart but not integral film for Polaroids ... Sort of ironic as their already producing integral film for their own cameras but not Polaroid's ....at least we have the impossible project.

    The Kodak Instant Film/Fuji Instax Film is shot through a cover sheet on the back of the print and therefor requires 0 or 2 mirrors. The Polaroid integral film (using completely different chemistry) is shot through the front of the print and requires 1 or 3 mirrors.

    Another +1 for the instax system. Sharp, contrasty, beautiful film, the likes of which you won't find from impossible any time soon if ever, and cleaner and easier than pack film. The film is comparatively affordable too.

    Then how come they won't make a check ing back for film cameras like a 120 RZ / Hasslwbla back? Isn't it almost 120 sized?

    the cheapest most reliable and I guess safest would definitely be the instax as most have said.

    but if you'd rather get a Polaroid and go for the TIP, then you could get a polaroid 3000RF instead of an sx-70.
    it's an all plastic body with rangefinder, rather than zone or fixed focus like the other plastic body polaroids.
    it also uses integral film (100, not 600) so would work with TIP film.

    you can usually get them for under $30.

    if you'd like, I have one I can send over to you, just pm me.

    I think you meant "600 NOT 100" but nice of you. Yay for APUG givers

    OK, the decision was taken (at presence of mother of my niece!). It is going to be SX-70 (or some of its variations - I need to look more into that) + TIP films. The very central reason is that the TIP films allow for alterations during development and that is what attract my niece most (she really has a crash on photography since about 6 months). The uncle will support the young artist with a couple of boxes of TIP film and a usable camera.

    So - now I am out looking for a working SX-70 (and needing to lear more about it - there are several clones as far as I know).

    EDIT: I do not seem to find any reasonable compilation on different SX-70. I would appreciate your help on which models are worth having a look at.

    I should probably add; as the camera will be pretty much a present from me, but for technical reason will only be delivered in March, I will have a little time to use it too
