If you're looking for one just for recreational purposes you'll probably only find Polaroid (the brand).. many models available of course..all taking in different film.. If you want to save up (if you can actually call it that when buying polaroid).. find a Polaroid model that uses 600 type film... rhoughly $20 for 10 shots..

Go to Cash Converters.. most outlets usually have quite a number of polaroid models that work fine...i got one for only $15 that took in 600 type film..

Polaroid is a brand in itself. Fuji also makes instant-film cameras, i think they're branding it under Fuji Instax or something like that.
You can still find Polaroid 1200 or 600 cameras. The 1200-film cameras are usually of the Spectra range, and the 600 cameras can be anything from Polaroid One cameras to Professional etc. models. 1200 or 600 is the film-cartridge format used. 1200 is slightly larger than 600. They come in packs of 10 shots in one self-contained cartridge, though the 1200 can come in special 12 shot catridges.
Here's two websites to look at: The Land List and, of course, Polaroid homepage
You can find brand-new Polaroids at Mustaffa, as well as film at a fairly reasonable price. You can find second-hand Polaroids off ebay. You cannot find the older format of Polaroid film and it's cameras, unless you're using a Polaroid back for one of the medium-format or studio cameras, or using one of the Polaroid passport-size cameras.
Cheers.
