My Grandpa gave me one of his old polaroid cameras the other day,
it's veryyyy old
and it says it takes speed 3000 film
I've looked on ebay, but it says collectors items because the developer dried up.
Does anyone know where to find this film in good condition?
The camera takes absolutely beautiful pictures,
and I would LOVE to be able to use it again!!!

I hope this is in the right topic, I figured it was photography related

I love collecting old cameras.  The best thing is to search Polaroid's website with the model number of the camera.

Otherwise, I found this site that specifies which films are which speeds.

The 3000 speed films are:

Black and White:
107
665
667

Color:
107C

107 and 107C were replaced by 665/7.  There is no longer a 3000 speed color film in production.  665 has been phased out and is no longer in production, but you might be able to find some stock still.

667 is probably your best bet, but check the model number on the site to be safe (if you can).

If you can't find the model number, you might be able to use this identifying guide to find it.

The Landlist has just about the most comprehensive information on Polaroids that I've seen.  You can look up your camera by model number and see what film it takes.  It will also let you know if the film is discontinued.  Good luck!  Polaroids are a lot of fun.

You can find the Landlist here:

It is possible that it will be a bit difficult to find polaroid film because they've now discontinued it.  Sorry, hope that doesen't discourage you Undecided.  But by all means keep all of your polaroid pictures! and the camera!  They will be treasures in the years to come!
