5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera., May 6, 2012
This review is from: Polaroid OneStep SX-70 White/Rainbow Camera (Electronics)
Impossible PX 70 Color Shade for SX-70 camera (PRD_1171) <~~film readily available from Amazon. Tired of people saying you can't buy film for their sx70's or 600's. I've heard too many stories of people throwing away or recycling these great cameras because they think they're useless. Buy some instant film from Impossible, the only folks making it for this camera, and start shooting amazing pictures again.

Now that that's out of the way. I love my SX-70 one-step. I have the matching Q-Light and besides my shots coming out great, it's the coolest camera on my shelf. It might as well have "HugMe" printed in italicized Helvetica as well.

They don't have anymore film in stock. Do you know any other places I can buy film?

PX 70 COLOR SHADE FOR POLAROID SX-70 CAMERAS / INSTANT FILM <~~Color
Impossible PX 100 Silver Shade for SX-70 Cameras (UV+ PRD_1195) <~~b&w...sort of.

Or I would suggest calling your local camera shop and just asking for Impossible Project SX70 film or running a search for PX70 at your other favorite online stores or the best source is from impossible themselves. I can't link directly to an off-amazon website but it's not hard to find. Amazon need to step up their game in stocking this film. Lots of independent dealers, while I'm grateful they're stepping in to offer it at all, they do seem to inflate the suggested retail price a little bit.

I totally agree with you. It horrifies me that someone would throw one of these away just because its old or missing a component. Having said that, I've just purchased two of these from a relative. They are in perfect working condition, just missing their batteries. Would you per chance know where I could purchase one, or what type it is? I've tried google with little success. I did find some things on the Impossible website: http://shop.the-impossible-project.com/shop/accessories/imp_film/ac_battery_4.5v but I would really like to make sure I'm buying the right thing. Maybe there is a cheaper alternative? Thanks in advance.

A. River. This is gonna blow your mind. The Battery is IN the film cartridge. So long as you have film for the camera, you never ran out of batteries. Been that way since 1972 when integral film was introduced. Get some film and start shooting!

Nearly $3.00 per exposure? Not worth it in the least.

I think the thousands of artists using it as a creative medium beg to differ. To each their own.
