I love the gear as much as I love taking the pictures. Of course I want to learn everything about how to take a picture. I also want to understand how the camera works. Since my son loves to take apart anything he can get his hands on it seemed like a good project to purchase an old camera take it apart together and see how it works. I found an old camera for $.50 Can you say bargain!
While shopping I found this gem for a mere $5.00! How cool is that!
The Polaroid Land Camera Automatic 230! This one I am not planning on take apart. On the contrary this one I want to get to know. The old battery – No. 531 (4.5 volt) was still inside corroded pretty bad. So I took out the battery and stuck the cord in vinegar and listened to it sizzle. Wiped it clean and presto ready for a new battery. Now it just needs a new battery and film.
Good ol’ Amazon has the film – Fuji pack film comes in FP-100C, FP-100B and FP-3000B. No longer does Polaroid make the film for this camera, but I have read that the Fuji film will work I will let you know!
