Pictured above is the Polaroid Automatic 100. I bought this camera about 6 years ago at a thrift shop because I thought it looked awesome… it then sat on my desk for about 4 years until I happend upon the notion to find film for it. And I did. Ever since then my refridgerator has been full of Polaroid Film.
So, this is just a short little somewhat informative post. I’d say you should pick up one of these cameras and some film and try it out. Its fun, no joke. The Auto 100 is a good camera, super easy to use, just set the film speed, focus and press the red button. If you want something with manual control then go with an Polaroid 195. Sick camera! Its on my list for sure.
The greatest part is that with some expired film… you’re gonna get some automatic nostalgia. Thats worth it alone. You don’t have to be some pro photographer, you probably take pics with a nice compact little digital camera or with your phone, eh? Why not just snag a camera thats 50 years old along with some film thats 10 years old and make some magic.
Here are some shots for your eyes.
