Sample photos


This camera has been mechanically tested and cleaned, our cameras are in perfect working order, to ensure you're equipped and ready to go out and point and shoot. 


How To:

Each pack of instant film contains a built-in, single use battery to power both the camera and flash. Polaroid's original built-in flash system was designed to be used indoors and outdoors. This system allows for smart energy use and quick recharge times at less than a second.

When you load film into the camera, press the shutter halfway down, take a picture, or open the camera. For best results your subject should be 4-10 feet away and near a light coloured background.

When you purchase your film you're also receiving all of the chemicals needed to process your Polaroid photo. However, rather than taking your film to be processed at your local photo lab manually - Your Polaroid film has been engineered to develop automatically within a matter of minutes!

All you need to do is shoot, then keep the photo in a dark place where your Polaroid can sit in a still setting until it has been developed. Once you’ve let the photo sit for about 5-15 minutes you've created your instant image.

Storage and Care: Store your camera in a cool dry place. Do not store in any location that can get excessively hot. We recommend finishing a pack of film within 2 weeks for best results and no longer than 1 month
