Re: c-12 camera


Hi , I saw those types but the ones I used and I am not sure if the first is a bona-fide 600 type --- 665 B/W with negative -- cant supply . Also the one really needed for fast work type 47 3000asa roll film ( can push to 10,000asa ) cant supply

What exactly did you ask them?

They seem to have:

i-type in both color and B&W
600 in both color and B&W
SX70 in color and B&W
Spectra, though currently sold out
8x10, B&W, color sold out.

I didn't see any sign of the old roll type
of film, which would leave out any of the camera
backs that used that film.

600 and SX70 were used in lots of scope
and microscope camera backs.

Thanks for your message.

Unfortunately we can't produce these film types please we don't have the necessary machinery. As far as I'm aware, there is no one else currently producing these film types.

I'm sorry to not be able to help further here.

Thanks and kind regards,
Ilona |


So its not such good news as hoped for .

For the group's edification, the company that had been
making new polaroid film for legacy polaroid cameras,
"The Impossible Project", a Polish firm, has acquired
the polaroid brand, and intellectual property related
to the instant film, and its manufacture.  This is in
addition to having acquired polaroid's last film
manufacturing factory, in 2008.

Most all of the polaroid film types are available new,
and under the polaroid brand.

This is as of May 12, 2017.


If you want to use your scope cameras, with polaroid backs,
you can use your scope cameras, with real polaroid film.

Now, if you could just find a camera, with the right
adapter ring to fit your scope...

Hi , I have 2 x C-12 camera's and adapters for the 500 series scopes , one also has a graticule projector attachment . I would need to get these out of storage to see what condition they are in before setting any price but I am prepared to be very reasonable for anyone interested . I have not been able to get any reliable supply of polaroid film for these for some while and I now use the C1001/C1002 digital scope camera's -- but on 7k series scopes
