This is a great little Polaroid camera if you simply want something you can point and shoot with and not worry too much about focusing or lighting. Whilst it’s quite a big hunk of plastic to carry around, I love the way it folds up and the balance of the thing in my hands – it’s a pleasure to use!
You can watch my video here for all the deets but I wanted to use this space to show some of the photos I have taken with it to demonstrate what this humble beast is capable of:
And finally – and this is a pretty scary photo, so apologies – this is the self portrait you saw me take if you watched the video.
I’ve ensured it stayed as true to what came out of the camera as possible – the yellow line about a centimetre from the bottom of the image; that’s the ‘edgecut’ – hardly noticeable I’m sure you’ll agree. This is Softone film and you can see it’s VERY soft and the colours are pretty muted. I think it should produce better results in lots of natural light (and no flash). I’ll keep you posted!
