ABOUT THIS ITEM

 

Polaroid Sun 600 LMS Instant Film Flash Camera with Light Management System

PLEASE
be sure to read the full listing for this camera and know what you are buying. This listing contains a lot of information because I want you to be an informed buyer.

The film included with this camera can produce highly variable, and often inconsistent results. I don't want this to be a surprise to anyone.

Instant photography can be a rather expensive hobby. Additional film for these cameras averages $2-$3 per photo. I recommend this only for the true photo enthusiast who is willing to do a little research, put in some time, and do some experimenting.

ABOUT THE CAMERA: This is a highly collectible and usable vintage instant film camera. The camera shoots original Polaroid 600 instant film and compatible Impossible Project PX 600 and PX 680 instant film. Polaroid 600 film is the most popular integrated instant film format of all time.

This was among the first of the 600 instant film cameras with an integrated flash designed and produced by Polaroid in their now highly familiar "box" format. The camera was originally released in the early 1980's.

This is a later version of the Sun 600 LMS with a better flash system. On this model, the flash begin charging when the camera is opened, charges quickly, and a green LED light on top of the camera indicates when the flash is ready to fire. Earlier models of the Sun 600 LMS looked nearly identical, but did not include the LED indicator system. On these older models, the flag charges much slower, and only charges when the shutter release trigger is held for an extended period of time. This later model for offer here is much easier to use.

This camera produces instant developing photographs in the iconic Polaroid format so many of us are familiar with. You will be able to shoot vintage style pictures in the classic square format with the white border.

Compatible BRAND NEW integrated instant film is still being produced by the good folks at The Impossible Project in Polaroid's old factory in The Netherlands.

CONDITION: Used

COSMETIC CONDITION: This is a used camera in good to very good cosmetic condition for it's age. Actual condition will vary from camera to camera.

Keep in mind that the camera is nearly 30 years old, and will show signs of prior use. Common wear to the camera may include wear to the silver paint around the lens and scratches/swirl marks on the black body of the camera.

FUNCTIONALITY: The camera has been inspected, cleaned, lubricated, and tested for functionality. The camera was tested using an empty film pack with a working battery loaded with a few previously exposed photos. The camera loaded the film pack and ejected the cover slide. The shutter released upon pushing the shutter release button, fired a shot, emitted a flash, ejected the photo, and advanced for the next shot without issue. Mechanically, the camera appears to be impeccable.

Given the high cost of virgin Polaroid 600 and compatible film, I have not taken any actual photos with this camera. The optics appear to be in good, clean condition upon inspection.

WHAT IS INCLUDED:


- Polaroid Sun 600 LMS Camera with attached neck strap (Please note that this is the later model with a much improved flash system)
- One starter pack of Impossible Project PX 600 Silver Shade Black and White Instant Film Produced late 2010 (Contains 8 Photos)

ABOUT THE FILM: Polaroid stopped producing film for these cameras in 2008. A group called The Impossible Project (TIP) bought their factory and equipment in The Netherlands, and began producing new instant film in 2010. While TIP procured Polaroid's old equipment, they had to completely re-engineer the film itself from scratch. The film is a constant work in progress. Improvements are made with each batch of production. The film included here was manufactured in late 2010.

The film will produce results that can vary greatly from pack to pack and shot to shot. I
can not guarantee your results with the included film pack.

There are two common issues with this film that buyers should be aware of. Both are a result of the developer paste in the film not being evenly or fully spread across the photo's surface.

1. Undeveloped spots and patches on the finished photo are common, and can vary from very small spots to nearly 3/4 of the photo. These undeveloped patches will show up as copper/brown areas.

2. Vertical lines in the photo with varying degrees of development in different areas are also common.

Based on my testing with this film, I can offer a few tips for best results:

1. Keep film refrigerated prior to use. Allow the film to come to room temperature for one hour prior to use.

2. Set the camera's exposure dial to the middle setting.

3. Keep the film warm during shooting and developing. Cool environments will inhibit proper development.

4. Shoot the film in plenty of light. Either shoot photos outdoors or be sure to use the built-in flash when indoors.

5. Make sure that the ejected photo is immediately and completely covered from all light for roughly 5 minutes after shooting. The first half second is critical. Early light exposure can result in washed out photos.

I highly recommend viewing sample photos and doing some additional research on how to achieve the best results on The Impossible Project website or elsewhere online prior to use.

Please remember that this is analog, photochemical-based photography, and your results from shot to shot can vary greatly even under the most ideal conditions. The flaws and subtle differences add to the uniqueness of each photo. Digital photography will always produce clearer, more predictable results, but it's no where near as fun! Every picture you take will be a true one of a kind.

ITEM PHOTOS: The camera shown here is a sample photos of what I have available. All cameras available here are in similar cosmetic condition. There will be variations from camera to camera.

I personally inspect, clean, and test each one of these cameras. I have sold well over a hundred of these (plus many other Polaroid cameras) with wonderful feedback from my buyers. If you experience any mechanical problems with your camera, please contact me immediately via eBay's mail system for assistance. I am here to help.

ABOUT ME

 

I have been an active eBay member since 2000. I first opened my eBay store, Brian’s eBuys in 2010.

 

As a seller, my aim is always total and complete buyer satisfaction. This starts with a detailed listing. I pride myself on providing accurate item descriptions and high quality photos for all of my listings. I also highly encourage all questions from interested buyers.

 

I am a trusted US based seller located in Overland Park, Kansas. I ship all of my items quickly and directly from the heart of the USA.

 

I sell a wide variety of items both new and used. My listings tend to greatly mirror my personal interests. I primarily sell photography equipment, consumer electronics, computer equipment, and collectibles. My inventory is constantly evolving, so please check back often!

 

 

PAYMENT

 

Payment is accepted exclusively via PayPal.

 

I ask that you please submit payment for all purchases within 24 hours of purchase. If this is not possible, please contact me before the end of the auction to make other arrangements.

 

If payment or contact is not made within 7 days of purchase, you will be reported as a non-paying buyer in accordance with eBay policy. Please do not bid if you cannot or do not intend to pay for your purchase.

 

 

SHIPPING

 

With the exception of weekends and holidays, your purchase(s) will always ship within 24 hours of my receiving your cleared payment via PayPal. Most items will ship the same day payment is received. The faster I receive payment, the faster I can ship your item(s).

 

All of my shipping is either free or is calculated based on the weight and dimensions of the package and your location. Shipping rates shown are calculated by eBay automatically based on current shipping rates provided by the United States Postal Service or UPS. Please see the Shipping and Payments tab above for full details for this item.

 

All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, USPS First Class Mail, USPS Media Mail, USPS Parcel Post or UPS Ground. Please view Shipping and Payments tab above for details on this particular auction.

 

I will be happy to provide expedited shipping or shipping via an alternate service at buyer's request. Please contact me promptly after auction end to make such arrangements and receive a shipping quote.

 

Combined shipping discounts will be made available whenever possible. If you are interested in more than one of my listings, please contact me for a discounted shipping quote.

 

All items are packed with a great deal of care. I use recycled shipping materials wherever possible, such as pre-used boxes, Styrofoam, newspaper, etc. The packaging will not always be pretty, but you can be confident your purchase will be safe along the way.

 

 

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

 

International shipping is available for all items unless specifically stated otherwise. For all but the smallest of items, I will only ship via USPS Priority Mail International or UPS Worldwide Saver. These services can be significantly more expensive than First Class Mail International, but are much quicker, and provide detailed tracking. Detailed tracking is critical for locating slow or missing deliveries. I have had too many packages go missing altogether with First Class Mail.

 

International shipping rates are calculated by eBay based on the weight and dimensions of the package, your location, and current shipping rates provided by the Unites State Postal Service and UPS. Shipping rates provided are for initial shipment only. You may also incur charges for import duties or taxes once the package arrives in your home country.

 

I will not falsify shipping records or alter shipping values for international shipments. All shipments will be properly marked as merchandise.

 

Combined shipping for multiple items is much cheaper on a per item basis than for shipping a single item. If you would like to purchase multiple items, combined shipping rates can save you a great deal of money on international shipping.

 

 

TRACKING

 

Tracking information is provided for all shipments. eBay will automatically provide notification via e-mail once your order has been processed for shipping.

 

Tracking information will also be visible directly on eBay under your purchase history and under the order details for your item.

As a buyer, it is your responsibility to make sure you are fully informed before placing a bid. Please be sure to ALWAYS READ THE FULL LISTING, view all accompanying photos, and ask all questions prior to placing a bid. I do not want any surprises for either of us.

I take it seriously, and hope you will do the same. My goal in every transaction is for both parties to be happy to leave positive feedback upon completion. I believe the #1 key to this is open and honest communication.

 

I will always leave positive feedback for all buyers that pay promptly shortly after payment is received.

If there is any reason you are not completely satisfied, please be sure to contact me ASAP so I can work with you to make things right.
