Polaroid 330!

Postby gmariani » Fri 08 June 2012 / 17:58 pm

Hello! My name is Genevieve. I have been interested and involved in alternative photography for a long time, though have never really explored the wonderful world of Polaroid. However, I recently inherited a vintage Polaroid 330 camera. I would love to be able to use it - but I am not certain what kind of film I would use. From what I have seen online, Type 100 seems like it might the one . . . could anyone give me a little more insight, here? It would be much appreciated.

Hi Genevieve, and welcome here !

As you saw, a 330 Polaroid camera uses type 100 films.

There is one first thing you should check before buying films and starting shooting: how is the battery compartment?
The shutter and right exposure requires a 3V battery, type CR123 or 2xAA or 2xAAA with a battery holder.

You may ahve to modify the battery compartment as told in this tutorial :

If you need some help, feel free to post some pictures of the compartment as it is now, some people around here can certainly help you getting the camera working!
:D
