“ Instant Camera. „
I got this camera years ago as a christmas present from my brother. At the time, these were the must have cameras but had since fizzeled out and Digital Cameras were introduced. However, more recently you're seeing a growing interest in Polaroid cameras and i can understand why. They are a classic camera that everyone should own; they create pieces of art in there own little way. The camera itself is cheap enough to buy, whether second hand or brand new, however the big downside to this is the dramatic increase in the price for the '600' brand polaroid films, which can cost in the region of £20-£40 for just 10 films. So if you're looking to shoot with this camera quite a lot, be prepared for a costly outcome. However for a camera which will be used on rare occasions i don't see why you shouldn't purchase this. The Photographs themselves are reasonably satisfying and for a cheap camera, you cant go wrong. This should be a part of anyone's collection.
In general polaroids tend to give a bit of a fuzzy result, this model however does give a slightly sharper result then most. Easy to use, quite smart looking for a polariod this is one model I can recommend. The films are a little expensive retailing at about £11-13 for 10 shots and colours are not as rich as a conventially processed film, but for parties and special occasions they are unbeatable. This model has been available recently for £25 including a film worth £11-£13.
