Fuji makes pack film for at least the older cameras.  I'm not sure if they make SX-70 film yet.

There are a group of people that bought the old Polaroid factory and started making film for the Polaroid cameras again.

Ben, I guess you can say I do, but I'm not big into it. When I'm out looking for treasures and come across an older camera item at the right price I'll buy it. I do have some older camera related items. Movie projector, movie cameras, slide projectors and viewers, film splicers. When I came across these cameras I couldn't resist from buying them. ( I didn't have any Polaroid's ) Most of the items that I buy that are not phone related I resell.

All these cameras sold to one person who collects cameras. I had listed one camera on Kijiji and a young lady came to look at it. When she seen the rest she offered to buy them all and I excepted her offer. She took everything posted in the pictures above. I now have more room for a package phone deal that I'm am going to pick up this week. I'll post pictures of them when I get them home.

It's good you had the right person come along.  Such cameras are usually a tough sell.
