    My son, Matt, is disabled by MS which struck him at the age of 16. He cannot work, but he can take a class or two which he has at Orange Coast College. He has taken all photography classes but has developed a love for Polaroid. He configures them a special way and adds his poetry. He has received numerous awards for his work. Polaroid has added quality to his life! We were so glad to find the film at your store, and he was thrilled to receive it! Happy New Year...Laurel Jones

    I picked up a used Polaroid camera more so for a collectors item than a camera, but luckily was able to find this film online, and so I now use it once and a while for fun. It works just as Polaroid film should, quick and painless. The color is not great, the sharpness is not great, but it is a very fun process. If you can find an old Polaroid camera, pick up some film and shoot away.

      Comments about Polaroid 600 Instant Color Print Film:

      It's everything you say in the details about it.....easy, good photos....I use it in cosmetic surgery to take end of case photos. These need to develop fast, and be showable to family in waiting area. NO hassle with computers, printing, etc. Just ready to show. I have never had a problem with it and have used it for years.
      PLEASE bring it back.

                The nostalgia from childhood is what using 600 film brings about. In the right camera the quality of Polaroid's 600 film comes forward. I'll definitely miss it when the packs run out and you can no longer find them in any store.

                  B&H is the only place I can still find Polaroid film for under [$] a package. And they have a lot of it! Yay! In this digital age it's getting harder to find instant print film, and we use it for work for quick and easy identification of items that fly out of our warehouse faster than we can catalogue them.

                    I purchased this film to work with my polaroid instant camera. I had tried other film packs in the past and most had expired and the film didnt work well. This film was PERFECT. It worked like a charm. Pictures were clear and developed properly. I'd buy this again for my camera. Thank you!

                            As you probably already know, Polaroid has stopped making their 600 instant color prints film. This is sad news for all. But what made it more sad is that shortly after this misfortune, I wasn't able to find the film for cheaper than double its normal price. But then I found B&H. They kept their prices incredibly fair [...]. I'm happy with the film, as always, and especially happy with B&H as a company.

                                  This film was great - we were nervous that we would not be able to find Polaroid 600 Film, since they have stopped producing it, but B&H had it in stock. Instead of spending hours on craigslist trying to hunt down this hard-to-find film, I only had to walk over to B&H. Amazing! Now I know where to find anything I need. the product itself was just film that did exactly what it was supposed to do when placed in a Polaroid camera, which was all we needed.

                                        Having several old friends>polaroids< I was saddened to hear the end was on the horizon. Being months after production ended, i was concerned of the date but the film I ordered is still fresh for a year and arrived in good shape.
