Advantages: Instant photos!
Disadvantages: No deleting the bad ones...
Wow, this camera is OLD, but boy did I love it. Back in the days before digital cameras, the only way to hold a print (or even see) a picture you'd taken was to take the print to a developer's and wait three days, or pay a premium to get it done in an hour. Back in the 80s/90s, Polaroid meant you could hold your snap in minutes - they were the ultimate in camera, from the Instamatic to the Joycam and they're still going today, albeit in digital form!
So, all you have to do is insert the special instant film, which usually came in 16 exposures, and go - you just point and click. There's a built in flash which is pretty good, and the autofocus works well. Once you've taken your pic, the square film pops out - you can take another photo almost instantly. To 'develop' the film simply wait three minutes and peel of the cover - your photo will be waiting right there!
Obviously now it's a somewhat obsolete technology but I absolutely loved my Polaroid Image 2 - it was a great way to take and share pictures in an instant and when I went to Uni some of those old Polaroid photos were amongst my treasured possessions.
So as much as I can't recommend you buy one now - I have to review this for the time that I had it, and it was a 5/5 purchase.
Summary: Obsolete now, but A+ for it's time
