Polaroid 600 Model B Folding Instant Film Camera
Want to try shooting an SLR camera but can't swallow the price? Try our very own Model B camera, built from the mainframe and shutter of a Model 3 and viewfinder system of a Model 2. These cameras take 600 film, allowing you to shoot in lower lighting than SX-70 allows for. Minimalistic. Matte black. No flashy stickers. Just a quality camera for a reasonable price.
Please note Model B cameras do not accommodate flashes (including flashbars and auxiliary systems) although you might not need one in good, ambient light. If you absolutely require a flash, consider a Model 2 camera converted to 600 film.
This is a genuine piece of vintage retro tech - refurbished and restored by Retrospekt.

Its beauty and technical capabilities are ageless, but to ensure it still works like the day it was first made, our team carefully refurbishes every camera by hand from the inside out. Each camera is deconstructed to its base components so its pieces can be checked, cleaned and serviced (or replaced if need be). This also includes a step unique to Retrospekt’s refurbishment process: using proprietary tools to internally recalibrate the shutter to expose true to the light/darken wheel so no compensation is needed in settings with normal lighting. The cameras are then reassembled with fresh, genuine leather covers and film tested to ensure they’re producing excellent exposures for another lifetime of use.
Authentic Vintage, Guaranteed to Work
This camera has experienced decades of life before finding its way to Retrospekt. As such, it will show some signs of past use and may vary ever so slightly from what is pictured. However, we are extremely picky about the condition of the cameras we restore and the parts we select for the repair process. The end result is an excellent vintage restoration that is guaranteed to work properly. Should any questions arise, we have a team of friendly people ready to help you.
This camera is covered by the Retrospekt Refurbished guarantee. [view our 90-day limited warranty]
