Went to an auction today and picked up something pretty cool. I picked up a Polaroid SX-70 Model 3 Land Camera for just $1.00. Far as I know it works, I don't know where I can buy film for it to really test it. It has a small chip in one corner, but other than that it appears to be in decent shape. I haven't decided weather or not I'm going to keep it or not. I've seen them on ebay going for good money, but I don't think mine is worth that much. Either way I think I got something really cool today. Also picked up a Canon camcorder, paid $11 for it but I'm keeping it.

Very cool, for a dollar I'd keep it.
I used to have one and maybe still do.
I need to open a few boxes in the attic.

I think you can still buy the film, Google will let you know.

For just a dollar, THAT'S THE STEAL OF THE CENTURY!!!!

I used to have that , too. Dunno whether it's still among my stuff back home. Gotta check one day if ever I get to go back to the old homestead.

It may be possible to find a specialist shop that supplies the film. Make a search for a dealer of compatible products by FUJIFILM .....

I looked around for film and the cheapest I could find is around $17 plus shipping. I don't have anyone around here that sells that kind of film (at least I don't think there is). With film being that much I doubt I'd get it. I really bought this to either keep as a collectible item (which it is) or to sell......well it's on ebay and for sale locally.

No harm to try see if it still works... ;) ... adds more to the value if it does.... bad enough the corner nick reduced it's value a bit....

Very nice find Andrew. I used to have one of these...
A lot of memories of a very good time too, when I was still young!:sad:

Went to another auction over the weekend and walked out with a Canon AE-1 SLR camera with a 50mm lens and a 200mm lens. I don't know if the camera works or not yet, just got to get a battery to see if it works. It's a pretty cool camera, if film wasn't so expensive to develop I'd consider keeping it.
