yup, looking at the SX-70 as well as the old foldable ones which look super cool! i think the packfilm (?) that the 250/350/450 uses can be bought cheaper, the Fuji brand?

there are plenty of options on ebay. the problem is that you don't know if it is working cos these cameras are very old. the 'newest' is probably manufactured in the 1990s?

there are a few being sold now in buy/sell. have you checked it out?

alternatively, thirtysix over at sunshine plaza is selling some refurbished polaroids and impossible film packs. a bit pricey compared to ebay. but at least you know they are confirm working.
