If you take a lot of pictures with a Polaroid One 600, you'll be changing film packs frequently. Polaroid 600 film provides only 10 exposures before it's time for a new pack. Fortunately, loading a fresh film pack is such a quick and easy process it can be accomplished while you're waiting for your last exposure to develop. Since the Polaroid One 600 film pack also contains a new battery, every time you load a new pack your camera's flash, auto-focus and film drive mechanism get fresh power, too.
