try your local thrift store ( saw one in mine today for $15 with 2 films) or ebay is always a good bet

ebay! :) the film is really expensive though, going to warn you now. a friend of mine gave me hers because she didn't want to buy the film anymore. i got 30 shots for about $80 which is actually a good deal... although painful for the wallet.

price the film on ebay before you buy one!

Yeah, I have to say make sure this is something you are willing to invest a ton of money in. I bought myself a polaroid camera and I've bought one pack of film since I've had it.
I'd love to use it more often but that fact that the film is so expensive it makes me nervous to use film when I have it

Gosh, I have 3 or 4 of them! I can't bear to part with any of my old cameras. I didn't even know they still made the film.

My dad still has one, he doesn't want to part with it either even though he doesn't use it. It's like having an antique. But I don't think they make the film anymore. My dad looked on ebay and the film is up there for bid but pretty pricey.

Try garage sales! I just picked up a Polaroid 600 with a new pack of film at a garage sale for $2.

I hate to say it but due to price it might be worth while to edit "fake" Polaroids. There are heaps of tutorials out there.
Of course, nothing is quite as nice as the real thing, I'd just keep your eyes peeled. Ebay and garage sales are great places to look.

Like the others said, ebay, flea markets, thrift stores... but it's really expensive because of the film. If you can live with a different picture format, I'd suggest the Fuji Instanx Wide for you: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/news/2009/09/09/lomography-presents-the-fuji-instax-210-a-real-wide-guy

I got mine for 5€ on ebay and the film is 19€ for 20 images. If all this is too expensive for you, there's still the digital way ;)

I have one and never use it because you can't find the film! I would sell if you are interested.
