I got this polaroid camera at the reuse & recycle center about 3 years ago. It was only three dollars! I didn’t know if it worked, but I got it anyway. (It worked! Beautifully, actually.) Well, spring/summer is here and that means I bust out all of my cameras including this one. I bought 5 packs of film on amazon for super cheap (it takes 100 style pack peel-apart instant film, which FUJI still manufactures!) and I can’t wait to start accidentally wasting half and making really pretty thing with the other half of the 50 total photos.
The excitement of the peel apart instant film!!! Yee! This marks the start of lots of picture taking. I forgot how much I love experimenting with film. I either wanted to become a professional film photographer or a professional lady extraordinaire specializing in getting excited about handwriting and doodles. I obviously didn’t pick photographer but either way, it’s my second favorite hobby <3
If you’re looking for a polaroid camera that isn’t going to cost you mad cash, you can find these color pack cameras really easily for cheap! Etsy & Ebay are STOCKED. The only thing that matters is if the battery compartment on the inside doesn’t have corrosion.
I recently learned how to take it apart & fix it if it breaks so I have no anxiety anymore.
It is also really awesome for double exposures. Real life photos soon.Read More
