    Another question...I've always got at least one...

    It appears that the camera's shutter is cocked manually. Is the battery needed for anything other than firing the flash (which I don't believe works)?

    I've got a 101 I use every once in awhile. You need the battery for it to work. I think they are readily available still. Pack film works in it, and is still available.

    As someone said, check the landlist. He has everything there.

    This is probably worth about $5 BTW. If you have the close-up adapter and cloud filter and other goodies maybe a little more.

    Best,

    Will

    Radio Shack has two batteries on order for me...($8.95 ea., Ouch!)

    Film is pretty much unavailable locally...I guess its off to that well known online auction site...

    I'm not all that serious about shooting with it. It just looks to be fun and I might get a few cool shots with it. My alterior motive is to get some of the young-ins interested in photography by appealing to their need for immediate gratification...

    We'll see what happens.

    Joe,
    If this is a 100 series Polaroid, that is one that they made in the late 60's-early 70's. This would use pack film, which Polaroid still makes in a variety of speeds and types. Your biggest problem is that uses an electronic shutter and the batteries are no longer made. It happens that I adapt this type of Polaroid for modern batteries and resell them. I can do this for you, or you can do it yourself. I use a 2 battery holder for AAA batteries.
