For the artist in you,
This review is from: Polaroid 600 Film Twin Pack (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Camera)
Let's be honest... this film isn't great. Reviewers who are praising its "GREAT COLOR!" and clarity may be confused with Polacolor peel-apart film, which yields extremely high quality. This stuff, on the other hand, is consumer-grade and is worse than 35mm film in these respects.
That's why I love it. While it isn't accurate, this film's color reproduction says "Polaroid" all over it. That really adds a certain dimension to your photos. Especially if you are photographing more "serious" subjects (i.e., not just family/friends), the polaroid has a way of lightening it up and making your photography look more nonchalant. It also "ages" your film for you, giving the photographs an old, faded feel right from the start.
If you've got an old polaroid camera lying around the house, take it out, by a pack of this stuff, and experiment. It's a lot of fun.

I have only one question - how can you have a "used" pack of film? If it is used, then it is no longer useable again by someone else. I read where Polaroid will no longer produce this 600 film packs. What will all us polaroid camer owners do in the future, go digital?

Yes, you can go digital. The Polaroid Pogo instant mobile printer has been out for about a year and you can buy it for around $50 at Amazon, Target and many other retailers. I just bought one about a week ago and it works great.

PLEASE tell all people who want Polaroid film and cameras back that there is a Website, www.SAVEPOLAROID.COM, which can help with this!

I did go to the website you described and the domain name is expired--so that won't help.
And it really sucks that we can't find Polaroid 600 film anymore and many of us can't afford to buy it if we do find it. I have a Polaroid Cool Cam (no carrying case, though) that uses Polaroid 600 film and my aunt also has a Polaroid camera that also uses hard-to-find Polaroid film as well, so we can't find decent film because so many pics have gone digital.

Impossible Color Film (8 Pack) for Polaroid SX-70 Cameras If you really love your Polaroid camera and don't mind spending money, Impossible film which works in the older Polaroid cameras is available from Amazon and even the Polaroid web site. It is not manufactured by Polaroid and has only 8 photos per pack (unlike the Polaroid 10 pack) and the prints will cost you about $2.80 EACH but the film is in current production and according to reviewers produces an acceptable instant print.
