    Try to load a empty cartridge with still battery left over and make sure the flash fires.
    Having expensive gears do not make you a better photographer. Period.

    What to lookout for? First, is how deep is your pocket. Ha ha..

    Just like what (iboey) has say. Get a empty film pack and test everything.
    But, if this is your first time getting a polaroid i guess you wouldn't have a empty film pack.
    Not just the flash! Flash is just a function that helping you to take a better pictures.
    The most importent for all is the shutter life! Without it! The cameras is useless!

    Almost all 600 series polaroids come with a fix lens and fix focus function.
    So, nothing much to look out for. Film wise? SX-70 or 600 film camera.
    That is not a big problem too. Just get a ND filter everything is good.

    Just go workout your budget.


    Check out this link :: http://polanoid.net

    The website have more than 95,000 polaroid pictures.
    And more that 300 type for different camera using different type of polaroid films.

    Maybe you have a rough idea on which model to choose.
