How to bag 3 dozen iZones & film affordably?
June 15, 2006 9:23 AM   Subscribe

Please...out-Froogle me! Will soon need three dozen or so el cheapo "sticker cameras" -- the kind that spit out tiny pictures with sticker backing. Any links or suggestions on how not to spend a mint on the cameras plus reload film?

I'm feeling particularly out of my depth because many of the sites which carry izone cameras (the only type of this product I could find) offer almost no information about the item, leaving me stuck as far as planning for extra film. Any input greatly appreciated!

Polaroid is the only company that makes cameras like this, as far as I know. here is the film you need for izone pocket cams. It dosn't seem like polaraoid makes any film for their small format cameras anymore.

You can still buy pocket sticker film, though.

Is this Froogle-fu?

$7.90 each for the cameras in 10+ qty, ~$60 shipping for 36. This seems pretty good considering that they're not dirt-cheap on eBay.

I'm willing to bet you one sticker camera that they don't come with any film, but I'll leave that to delmoi's links.

listen, the polaroid (especially small format) cameras ARE dirt-cheap, even when you buy them new. the problem is the film is always $$$.

i bought all my small format polaroid cameras NEW for about $19.99 (joy cam, izone & i-zone), but the film is about $1.00 to $2.00 for LOW END polaroids, and come usually in packs of 10, so you spend about $10.00 for film.

you might be able to find *expired* film for sale cheaply on ebay, but results of old film in your polaroid small format may vary.

are you insisting on cameras, or are you really only looking for sticky-paper photos?

I ask, because Post-It just announced camera paper, where you have the picture on one side, and the familiar post-it stickiness all over the other side. I saw an ad for them yesterday on Vancouver TV, you can stick these photos on your fridge, bulletin board etc... they come in most regular photo sizes.
