Throwback Thursday: Easy to use. Just point and shoot!

A few days ago, something way up on top of my late mom’s massive china cabinet caught my eye. When I reached up and brought it down, I couldn’t believe it…

A Polaroid Instant One Step 600 camera from 1983, in perfect condition.

20140724_010646STblogWPNo red-eye. Automatic flash range of 4 to 8 feet. Lighten/darken control. Automatic picture ejection. Includes neck strap. No batteries required. Oh, joy! Remember how cool that was then? State-of-the-art. πŸ™‚

There was no film in the cartridge, which is a shame because the tiny green light behind the flash immediately came on when I unfolded the camera. And, speaking of… the flash bulb still flashes and the camera still works. Ha!

So. That means that, one day, I just might be able to take pictures with mom’s camera and post them on a Throwback Thursday. Sweet!

Stay tuned, friends.
