Polaroid – The Instant Film Camera
Polaroid is Back!
The first camera I ever used was my parents 1970s Polaroid. It was perfectly packaged in a brown ‘carry all’ box with a silver clip (yes that’s me and the box in the picture)! It used to knock my legs when I walked but I still insisted in carrying it around my neck everywhere. Roll on a few years later …. and although that camera has long been confined to history, I still have an affinity to the Polaroid. I recently bought a 440 Land camera as Fuji are still making the 100C film and for other types of Polaroid you can also buy the 600 film made by the Impossible Project. A pack of 10 pictures costs a little over £10.00 for the 100C for Land Cameras and 8 pictures about £16.00 for the Polaroid 600 film . Unfortunately no photography shops in Cardiff seem to stock the film I need. Thank goodness for Amazon!
