Best Answer

A collector can pick up an old 800 in working condition for $3 to near-mint for $40.

Additional Information

The 800 was a roll film model made from 1957-1962. Film is no longer available and the value is virtually nil, even though many of these can be found in mint condition. IMHO, these were marvels of engineering and manufacturing that were too expensive and complex for the average picture taker to handle. The lure of instant Photography sold many of these cameras but the realities of operation relegated many to the back of the closet. FWIW, I believe these were similar to the Model 150 but had a lifetime guarantee that probably died with the company.

Some people have experimented with converting the old 800s for use with 120 roll film (also becoming expensive) with acceptable, but not stellar, results. Most of these cameras remain unsold at auction.

What is the value of a Polaroid 150 Land camera?

The Polaroid 150 Land camera is not popular with collectors. You can buy a working camera in good condition for $1-10, or a kit complete with carrying case, accessories and manuals for $15-$20.Other InformationPolaroid manufactured approximately 400,000 150 Land cameras between 1957 and 1960. This was the precursor to the old Polaroid 800, and featured a coupled rangefinder and parallax-correcting viewfinder. The 150 was a decent amateur camera for its day, but the film was discontinued in 1980. Some people have had success converting these units to accept standard 120 roll film, but the conversion destroys any collector value the camera may someday have.


What is the age and value of a Polaroid 800 camera Serial number-G117697?

I can't tell you that, but I can tell you that the number you think is the serial number is not the serial number. The reason being, my camera has the exact same number on it. So it must be a model number. I can't find any other numbers on the camera to reflect a serial number.

The value of an ounce of gold changes daily on the spot gold market. To calculate the value of 800 pounds of gold you multiply the spot price of gold for that day times 16 (for one pound of gold) and then multiply that amount times 800. For example if the price of an ounce of gold is $850 today, you would calculate the value of 800 pounds of gold as follows: $850 X 16 X 800=$10,880,000
