2ndShot SX-70 also does conversions, I think for a far better deal than Mint.

2nd Shot, Impossible, Mint, LandCameras.com, and a few others deal with repairs. Expect to pay within $150 or so.

Your viewfinder blinds are broken; would recommend contacting 2ndShot for repairs.

Define "very badly". If you have bad roller pressure, you'll have goldish-brown areas on at least a third of your image or so. If you're getting completely washed-out (white) images: more than likely you're not shielding the image from light when it ejects. Impossible's color film still ha...

It's a Pronto which uses SX-70 film through Impossible. Film is not going to be perfect, the sample shots appear to be older, probably taken with a Spectra System on Image film when it was still fresh. The Impossible stock's results will vary based on temperature and shielding from light. You may ge...

Please remember that, as we prepare to head into 2015, the last of Polaroid's original film stock expired AT THE LATEST in September 2009; and that we have no knowledge of how this stock for Amazon has been st...

No worries, you can still get film on Ebay but be careful and try to get something from 2005 and newer as the inks tend to dry up after long periods of time.Also you do not know how the film was cared for. needs to be in a refrigerator if not going to be used for a while (unopened packs of film tha...

From a collector's perspective: resell the Spirit since it's still in the original packaging and use the OneStep; image quality will be about the same ("meh"), anyway.
