Polaroid 640 Land Camera - Tested and Working - Polaroid 600 Instant Film Camera

$64.99

This 640 Land Camera is in great working condition and in good cosmetic condition with a few scuffs and scratches from normal use. The output unit runs well, the pressure rollers spin freely, and the flash works. The original neck strap is well attached, and everything opens and closes easily. The flash indicator light is inside the viewfinder and to charge the flash press the shutter button halfway until the red light goes out. Normally takes about 10-15 seconds to recharge the flash.

Please see the photos for more information on the camera's condition.


When most people talk about Polaroid cameras, they mean the popular and relatively cheap models of the 1980s and 1990s that used film packs with integral batteries that were designated the 600 series. The "instant" prints measure 79mm (3.1") square with a white border around them and take around 3 minutes to fully develop at 70°F (21°C). The film has an ISO rating of 640. The film was branded with several different names over the years, including "Extreme 600" and "Notepad". A high definition "professional" film named "779" could also be used with cameras from the 600 series. Some of the cameras had 'sonar' autofocus and/or featured glass lenses, but most had plastic lenses with a fixed focus of around 4 feet. A "close-up" lens was often included, but this took the form of a simple plastic meniscus that slid into place. Many of the models are functionally identical to others but have different colored fascia, names, and stickers according to marketing territory. Several models were limited editions with tie-ins to icons of popular culture, such as Barbie or the Spice Girls, while other versions were promotional items made for corporate entities and are now highly collectible thanks to their rarity.

The 600 series can be divided into 8 sub-groups.
