Please note that our cameras have been fully tested by FPP’s Michael Raso. All of our cameras have been pre-owned and therefore may have some cosmetic imperfections scuffs or marks. Any imperfections will not get in the way of making great, great images!
Camera with Cover - Please note that the battery compartment has been completely refurbished and converted so that your Polaroid 420 will use 2-AAA batteries. Replacing batteries will be a breeze. Speaking of batteries, two fresh AAA batteries are included and installed!
