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.
No 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. 🙂
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!
Of course, 600 film is no longer made. But there is a group of folks called The Impossible Project (.com) who produce instant film for classic Polaroid cameras, the only company in the world today to do so.
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.
