Hey guys and gals,

I just purchased a model 440 on eBay. The user said it looks like it's in great condition, but is unsure if it is functioning. Heck, for $9.99 and free shipping, who could resist?

I'll be receiving the camera soon and was wondering what are some things I should take into account while "testing" the camera. This is my first polaroid (well, first vintage polaroid) camera, and have I have never used something similar to the pack-film models.

Are there some tests that I can do without having to put some film through it? And once I do make some test shots, what should I be looking for to see that everything is functioning properly?

Thanks for your help,
