Used: One of first polaroid cameras MADE! (1950's)
This polaroid camera I got to borrow is from the late 1950's! It uses a range-finder to focus. You snap the picture, then pull a large-ish tab out (attached to one polaroid you are using). Then you pull out an even larger tab (look at the end of the full-right side in the photo above) and WAIT. You wait 2 minutes or so and then peel it open and VOILA! Instant-O.
*Note: This polaroid cannot focus too closely. My arms were not long enough to get my selfie in-focus.
Can you imagine how technological this would have seemed?
The user manual that comes with it is entertaining in itself.
In this daily portrait, I got to learn how to use an archaic and wonderful old camera!
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
