    I used some a cople of years ago. The quality is lame...It is cheep so I would almost give them away at $5 for a 12 shot roll when I was out shooting sports...I let them know upfront that the quality is low....

    thanks for that, do you remember which type of film it was? 600, 1200, or other polaroid?

    I believe 400...
    I had only printed up 4x6's...they lacked detail and not too sharp...

    The quality is low, and they do lack detail and aren't too sharp, but's that's what's good about them.
    They are somewhat of a novelty camera I suppose. They are great for the low saturated colours, but considering all stocks of polaroid film are no longer being manufactured it's going to be a dead medium in a short period of time.

    Wait...I just relaized these initial posts are from almost a year ago, oh well.

    haha - I'm just about to head out to buy a few more packs of polaroid film right now.

    I use my polaroid for similar reasons I use my holga and pretty much any camera that *isn't* my slr - and none of those reasons are print quality! It's just about the character of it all really.
