Hi everyone

I have the Polaroid 320, 335, and 440

which camera is the best to shoot with I have a pack of film to try and I will probably sell the 2 cameras I don't use.

Hi,

I've read the cameras descriptions ( http://www.polaroid-passion.com/apparei ... ck-100.php ) and I'd say the 440 is the most versatile.

I'd suggest you keep 2 of them, in case your favorite get a malfunction.

Iv heard the timer and other parts in the 440 can cause the fuji fp-100c packs to jam up?

I had this problem with my 330, wich has a timer. I read it can be easily managed.

The timer doesn't seem to be really the cause but the flat spring does. Before inserting the pack, flatten the spring against the back in order it doesn't press too much on the pack.

I haven't tested yet. Some of us on the forum had with success.

I think the 440 has the most interrest for you as you can manage different ISOs and it's equiped with a glass lens.
I think none of your camera has tripod mount?

Keep the 440 and the 335 as backup since it has the glass lens.
