I bought these cameras for a bit of fun, but after some digging it seems that both cameras should actually be useable! From what I can tell Polaroid are still producing their ‘One Step’ model, so in theory today’s Polaroid should be able to take the same film. The Kodak Tele-Ektralite 600, which was produced between 1980 and and 1982, took a bit more digging, but after a phone call to Orms Print Room in Cape Town I can confirm that they’re still developing the 110 cartridge film. Hopefully they’ll be able to put you in touch with a supplier of the cartridges, but in the meantime the camera comes complete with two cartridges*, one already loaded in the camera, and one still boxed.
A great gift for any budding photographers out there – so much cooler than snapping a selfie with your iPhone!
* Note: I assume that film expires, so I’m not sure whether you could in fact still develop this film. Perhaps speak to the chaps at Orms. Also when I first opened the Kodak box I assumed something was missing as there’s a gap in the box, but the missing item is actually just a 9v battery
