5-0 out of 5 stars The best polaroid camera so far
The last polaroid camera I owned was in the early 70's. I remember squeezing the sides of the shutter button to get a "yes" or a "no" in my view finder before I could take the picture. I also remember pushing single flash bulbs into the flash pocket in front of the camera. Taking a picture with a polaroid was always an event. Despite the fact that this was the only instant camera around, I always felt I had to take my time to get the best picture possible. And, I didn't want to waste precious film as it cost so much. And, it was all black and white (which now have an archival quality to them).

It was with this nostalgia that I purchased this camera and I was delighted. First of all, I love the new compact, sleek design. The camera is still fairly large and heavy. The photo quality is good but not great. No more peeling film or inserting flash bulbs. There are some sophisticated extras on this camera but my favorite is the auto-timer, so now I can take photos of myself. I lent it to a friend who needed to take photos of bridesmaid gowns she was considering to show her sister who was getting married and my friend was hooked. I had to beg for the camera back. Despite the so-so picture quality there's no getting around the "fun" factor of a polaroid. In spite of all the digital technology and sophisticated cameras now available, there is still an itch that only a polaroid can satisfy. I love my polaroid. Get this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars very good
i first bought this as a present for a friend of mine. After i took a few pictures with it,i was honestly very impressed! The picture quality was very good, not great.
The camera was slightly big and in a little bit of an odd shape to hold, but i didnt mind that too much.
Id recommend this camera, but not if your looking for excellent picture quality. Its still a fun camera and really convientant how you dont need to have it developed!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Every picture we took with this camera came out
great! We used it at our wedding for the guest book and I was so happily surprised how great they all came out! Some of the best pictures we have are from this camera!

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Pictures
I'm a Great Grandmother who finds this camera very easy to use. Big improvement over the first Poloroid instant camera which I owned. When I bought this Sprecta 1200si there was a camera case on the same page which I also bought. However, it didn't fit this camera! I would like to know where I can buy one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Photos
The Polaroid Spectra 1200si, using the bright Spectra film, produces superb photos in almost any circumstance. The camera focuses automatically, beeping if you are too close to your subject, and adjusts to various lighting conditions.

The timer feature is simple to use, giving off a very helpful insistent beeping as the picture is about to be taken - rather than taking a photo of you telling your family the camera's about to take a picture, it takes a photo of everyone paying attention to the beeping Spectra.

If all of this beeping is too much to bear, you can set the camera to a silent mode.

I use a variety of Polaroid and Minolta APS cameras for art and family photos. When I need a reliably good picture right away, I reach for the Spectra and am rarely disappointed. Polaroid, by the way, is an extremely responsive company with great technical assistance and customer service. ... Read more

Should you really "shake it like a Polaroid picture?"
Ever since the song "Hey Ya" by Andre 3000 of Outkast came out, everyone is shaking their Polaroid pictures. Shaking or waving a Polaroid picture to help the development process originated in the early days of peel-apart film. After peeling the negative, the image needed to dry before it could be handled, so waving the photo helped it to dry more quickly. When using the integral films (600, Spectra, 500, SX-70/Time-Zero, i-Zone) that are used in our most popular current camera models (Polaroid One, OneStep, JoyCam, etc.), the image develops and dries behind a clear plastic window and never touches the air, so shaking or waving has no effect. In fact, excessive shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause "blobs" in the picture. The best way to ensure a perfectly developed image is to simply lay the picture on a flat surface immediately after it exits the camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best instant camera although it's my first
ok. even though i didn't have much info. about this product, i really needed an instant camera and
other products at amazon were not very tempting or pretty. so i had no better choice than to just purchase this.

i've been using this camera for about a week. and i've taken about 15 pictures[trying to save films]
and the results are just beautifully fine! some of the pictures
are just so lovely with great color and texture. also self-timer is really useful.
but i really never used red-eye preventing button yet. but i assume that's also helpful

if you want to check how the picture would look, look in here:

so if you're trying to buy an instant camera and don't know what to buy,
try this one. other cameras are too cheap or too expensive
this camera is just right amount of money to spend with great results!

i greatly recommned it ^-^

5-0 out of 5 stars Great results from a 'construction' camera
I bought this camera at a going-out-of-business sale at a local retail store about a year ago. I thought the 'construction' nature of the camera would make it more durable, while still providing fairly good pictures. Little did I know that the pictures would be so good!
I never would have guessed that this camera would take such crisp, clear pictures. I have shot more than a half-dozen pkgs of film and every picture has turned out fine. Please understand...this is not a 35mm camera with all the bells & whistles. It is a Polaroid instant camera (w/ flash) that produces good, instant pictures. That being said, it is very rugged and durable and will tolerate adverse weather better than your 35mm will. I have taken pictures in the rain w/o problems - you only have to remember to protect the film when it exits the camera. It needs to be kept dry & warm...just like any polaroid.
If you go into this with the correct expectations, you will not be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the guy who has everything...
This camera is a great idea for someone who has everything, and who likes to do home improvement projects and keep track of them. It's quick to use, and has great space for reference for each project. And, it's easy enough to use to document little parts of each individual project, to see the details necessary. I'd recommend it for a home improvement buff who is hard to buy for. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great depending on what you're using it for
Sure, the picture quality isn't nearly as good as a 35mm. Sure, the film is expensive and you only get ten exposures.

However, it's an INSTANT CAMERA. They're not known for their superior picture clarity and amazing color. If that's what you're looking for, then don't buy this camera.

I don't know a lot about cameras. I don't know anything about Polaroid and the technology behind the Polaroid One, but I can tell you that I am 100% pleased with this camera as it fits my needs perfectly. I'm using it to take a photograph every day of my 15 month old son to send to my husband who is doing a year long tour in Iraq.

The camera is uncomplicated, relatively compact, and the film loads easily. The picture quality is better than what I remember from my childhood in the 70s, but not much. (Again, I'm not complaining. I expected this. The purpose for stating that is so others will not expect too much.)

If you're buying it for a specific purpose and not to be your primary camera, then you'll be 110% satisfied. I am.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Polaroids
I've used Polaroid cameras off and on since the Swinger came out in the 60's. I've had the SX-70 and the One Step. The Polaroid One is by far the easiest to use. The LCD film counter on the back is easy to read and the pictures are clear. The camera takes type 660 film or even takes type 779 professional film for better colors and better clarity. The camera is solidly built, fits into your hand comfortably and is easy to carry thanks to a two position hand strap. Polaroids have always been fun cameras. This one is no exception.

2-0 out of 5 stars not so great
If you're in the perfect lighting this camera takes good pictures but most of the pictures I've taken are very blury or the colors are way off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Choice!
Polaroids generally are a little awkward to handle, but this one is a very good basic model with very easy-to-use and fundamental features (red-eye reduction, timer). It handles light in a straightforward fashion, but can also be sensitive and manipulated for nice effect. Also, I dropped it on the floor and it kept working - you can't ask for more than that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera! Worth Every Penny!!!!
Well when I first bought this camera I was a bit skeptical. I've never owned any thing similar to this. I must admit, the commercial caught my attention so much I just HAD TO GET IT!!! And I'm happy I did. I bit heavy, but I guess all of the similar ones are too. Very easy to use, although I didn't know it came without film which I purchased seperately at the store. It uses polaroid 600 film. The film is very easy to load. The picture quality is amazing. Extremely clear and good pictures. The cool thing about this camera is that it automatically turns on with flash, which you can take it off, it has a self timer so you can also be in any picture. It has a handy carrying strap. Although, if the camera case is available, I think you're better off. Hope this helps! Take care. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid's old-timer is their standout bargain
Lately Polaroid has been busy trying to light a fire under their flagging sales by introducing a raft of 'life-style accessory' cameras: the i-zone, JoyCam, PopShots and most recently, the Spectra FF. But its their oldest model, the One Step, that offers the most bang for the buck. The i-zone, PopShots and JoyCam models foolishly have dispensed with Polaroid's traditional lighten/darken control. Since Polaroid instant film has a rather narrow range of tone and contrast, an exposure that's sligthly too light or dark can be much more disappointing than if it were shot with a conventional camera. And at nearly a buck a pop, disappointing snapshots get pretty expensive. The One Step still has a slide control for adjusting exposure, which gives you some chance of salvaging a shot that otherwise wouldn't impress. The One Step models also give you a swing-in close-up lens for getting more pleasing portrait shots.

The newer One Step Express and Silver Edition models offer the same features, plus an adjustable hand strap in a spiffed-up package; its your call as to whether the strap and added swoop is worth the extra ten bucks. Polaroid's other new-comer, the Spectra 1200FF offers essentially the same features with a wider-angle lens, fold-up body and rectangular format film. Its also nearly twice as ... For practical features in a reliable, bargain-priced package, the One Step Close-up model is the pick of the lot.

5-0 out of 5 stars The fun of it is the most important part
I definately love this camera. It's incredibly fun and gratifying to get your pictures developed a minute after you take them, and this camera in all honesty isn't meant to be professional. If you want professional quality go buy an slr or a digital. This kind of camera should be purely considered for enjoyment. Yes it is heavy but not in a way that makes it uncomfortable--it's bulk makes it nostalgic. It has very basic camera features and is one of, if not the, easiet camera i've ever used--just shove the film in and go. The camera takes decent quality pictures and tends to put a slight sepia tint on them when taken inside, but i consider that a cool trademark effect. The features of this camera include a lens that can be slid over to take closer pictures, a sliding numberless aperture setting, built in flash, and a button that lets you control the use of your flash. The only drawback is the fact that you can't take pictures closer than 2 feet (like all polaroid cameras). The lens of the camera also makes ojects closer to the camera larger in proportion to ojects farther from the cameraon the prints but it's not incredibly noticable. Overall, I enjoy it very much and would whole-eartedly recommend it for anyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Handy Cam
This is a nice camera for those quick instant photos you want of people. However the size of it is large and the photos aren't exactly TOP quality. It's nice to have for those quick shots to show right away. The actual picture aren't something you put in a scrapbook or picture book, but I wouldn't buy this camera for those reasons. These pictures are ment for the refrigerator or a bulliten board to look at on your way out or for quick viewing. Thats why I like it because the pictures are nice to look at, but they're not priceless pictures that you treasure. So in conclusion, I would highly recommend this camera for fun and quick purposes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Oops... I dropped it again
This camera feels like hold a huge sandwich. This thing almost slipped out of my hands when I was tired, but the bad thing was when the retailer swept the dust off the camera to show it to me. And then BANG! he took a picture of me when I least suspect it. The flash stunned me for a while...

If you are short of funds and size matters, this is okay as it is.

The thing that disapointed me was that when I tried to take a picture, I had to look through the little hole with my unperfect vision. It's like lokking at a one centimeter squared picture and you want to see the details.

Since I don't want to type more, you must read other reviews of the other cameras. It's not my fault if I like to critic products... people even told me to... huh... read books, because i'm 15 and I spend a lot of time buying stuff.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay pictures, but...
The first thing I did with this camera was how comfortable taking pictures with it was. I had problems seeing the subject, because it had a very small view so my nose just keep hitting the camera just to get the best view with this thing. That's my reason it's not THAT good of a camera.

I saw that more expensive cameras usually takes better pictures. The retailer took two pictures with two different cameras and one seemed darker and less vibrant(guess which one is the more expensive one).

Finally, I just don't know why, in Canada, films for these cameras are just too expensive. It cost me two dollars every picture! At that price, I rather buy a SRL camera. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars GET IN PHOTO WHAT YOU SEE OR DO ...NOW AND PRIVATE!!!
The best choice for any occasion. If there was an auto-picturing system I would give it a 5*.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-purpose camera.
It kills me that Polaroid is doing so poorly these days. I've got several old Polaroid cameras, and they've stopped making film for them. I just bought this new one very recently, and it takes great pictures, end of story.

To say "the film is expenisive" is not a helpful critique of this, or any Polaroid camera. That's just the way it is. Think of the money you spend on 35mm film, and then seperate processing. That's why Polaroid film costs more money.

This Spectra takes sharp focused pics at all distances. It's a far cry from the old fixed focus, or manual focus Polaroid cameras. The minimum distance from the object is something like 2 feet, which means it can't focus too close, which is a shame, but Polaroid also makes the Spectra 1200FF which is a fixed wide-angle focus, so it has some macro features.

Good camera, very versitile. Forget digital cameras, support Polaroid and keep them alive.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun camera
I own this camera. It is a fun "grab and go" camera when you see something and need a take a quick picture. It's fun at family and friends get to gethers, but the film is a little expensive, but what the heck, have fun anyway. If you need to document something for your insurance company, or want to keep a photo record of your collection, it works very good. All in all, a good camera to keep with you at all times, "just in case."

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good camera.
I was excited to try out the new polaroid camera using the bigger film. What a waste, if you want a great polarid camera you are going to have to go to some special camera shop, if you want a decent one don't buy this just get the old stand by, one step (...), its just as good as this camera if not better. ...

The wide-angle lens format of the Polaroid Spectra 1200FF camera lets you capture larger scenes, like big groups, without missing a single detail. The built-in, quench-controlled flash fires automatically every time (fill-flash) to ensure that your images are always perfectly exposed. When this auto- flash system is combined with the 2-zone autofocus function, you get vivid, sharp contrast pictures every time.

Besides just being fun, this camera has many business applications like documenting insurance and real estate claims, body shop claims, appraisal documentation, landscape design, "before and after" pictures, or "work-in-progress" updates. The slim, ergonomic design makes this camera extremely portable and easy to take with you everywhere. ... Read more

  • Requires Polaroid Spectra Platinum film
  • Wider angle lens lets you capture up to 33 percent more of your scene

1-0 out of 5 stars Complaints
I recently ordered the above product and am very dissatisifed with the results. Pictures are fuzzy and color is bad. Pictures are so small, regardless which of the two settings I use.

Also, there is not any other adjustments or options to improve the quality of the pictures.

I'm using the Polaroid Spectra Film two pack instant film which was all that was available at Dean's Camera Shop in Omaha. Is there another type of film I should use that would provide better pictures and where in Omaha can it be purchased. Is there any adjustment besides indoor-outdoor range??

Val Drumm

2-0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As You Think
I have an older polaroid camera that takes better pictures than this one. One must be careful about the distance between you and the object being photographed. Outdoor pictures seem to be the most problematic. The picture quality just isn't as good or consistent as it should be.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty damn good!
She works great. She takes greast pics, she's instant, it's fun, looks bloody good..and captures mermories that will still be around for ages.

The thing with this camera is that it compliments itself - where there's a good point for every bad point.

For example, the size of it..it's really quite heavy and large, and when the top is extended, it's a pretty big piece of equipment to be playing with. Yet..the design is really cool..no matter what the size! it's a funky silver, with the cool lens and sleek edging..there's no reason why you wouldn't want to have one!

Often, in bright bright daylight, the photos can become very white ie: too much light for the camera. This sometimes makes the photos a little blurry, and obviously the subject matter non defined. But at the same time..in the right light you have wicked intense colour.

It I find is also quite difficult at times to judge the 2 different settings; 0.6m-1.2m or 1.2m-6m. Often when you think you are in one zone and you set the camera to that...it may still often be a little blurry, as you may be just in or out of the range.

But the benefits here are that of simply having a polaroid camera..instant, instense coloured, extreme fun fotos.

So overall she aint bad..and I'd definently reccomend her to anyone - simply for the fun that I have found the polaroid to be..you can relive an excellent moment 2 minutes later.

3-0 out of 5 stars I bought it in June and it stopped working on Sept 1??
It WAS a good camera, took very nice pictures and it seemed to depend on each packet of film for the colors??? I used it a lot and all of a sudden... just barely into 3 months of ownership,it broke.The film dragged after each picture and then it died....still drags but nothing comes out and I tried several packets of film....So much for a good camera. KMS

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for indoor pictures
While a great camera overall, it does have a few problems,

As always, the camera was extremely easy to use, and the close up lens work great. The wide angle lens is a DEFINITE PLUS! In comparing an old Polaroid Captiva and a friends JoyCam, I was able to get an additional 20-30% more image using the 1200FF.

While the pop up design is extremly easy to manipulate, the overall size was quite surprising. This is definitely not a camera that you can slide into your camera bag or purse as an after thought. The surprisingly large size is about the same as 3 DVD cases stacked on top of each other.

SouthPaw's, nothing new here, you are still out of luck with this one. Pretty much everything on this camera is designed for right handed use, from the pop-up mechanism, the shutter release, and even the film cover release.

While it is advertised for both indoor and Outdoor photos, Outdoor photos, have a tendency to be a bit washedout, especially in low contrast situations (brightly lit objects, wide open spaces, light colored buildings, etc). It would have been nice if Polaroid would have added a contrast adjustment switch, like they did on the Captiva. In contrast, the 1200FF fill-in flash works great for indoor photos.

As with all Polaroids keep a watch over the film, extreme temperatures will greatly effect the image quality (don't leave it baking in your car), and with the pitures costing almost a buck a pop, it can turn out to be a costly mistake.

While definitely not a replacement for a standard 35mm, its overall picture quality, wide angle lens and obvious instant gratification factor, make this a great tag along camera for any family trip, or party. ... Read more

Should you really "shake it like a Polaroid picture?"
Ever since the song "Hey Ya" by Andre 3000 of Outkast came out, everyone is shaking their Polaroid pictures. Shaking or waving a Polaroid picture to help the development process originated in the early days of peel-apart film. After peeling the negative, the image needed to dry before it could be handled, so waving the photo helped it to dry more quickly. When using the integral films (600, Spectra, 500, SX-70/Time-Zero, i-Zone) that are used in our most popular current camera models (Polaroid One, OneStep, JoyCam, etc.), the image develops and dries behind a clear plastic window and never touches the air, so shaking or waving has no effect. In fact, excessive shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause "blobs" in the picture. The best way to ensure a perfectly developed image is to simply lay the picture on a flat surface immediately after it exits the camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best instant camera although it's my first
ok. even though i didn't have much info. about this product, i really needed an instant camera and
other products at amazon were not very tempting or pretty. so i had no better choice than to just purchase this.

i've been using this camera for about a week. and i've taken about 15 pictures[trying to save films]
and the results are just beautifully fine! some of the pictures
are just so lovely with great color and texture. also self-timer is really useful.
but i really never used red-eye preventing button yet. but i assume that's also helpful

if you want to check how the picture would look, look in here:

so if you're trying to buy an instant camera and don't know what to buy,
try this one. other cameras are too cheap or too expensive
this camera is just right amount of money to spend with great results!

i greatly recommned it ^-^

5-0 out of 5 stars Great results from a 'construction' camera
I bought this camera at a going-out-of-business sale at a local retail store about a year ago. I thought the 'construction' nature of the camera would make it more durable, while still providing fairly good pictures. Little did I know that the pictures would be so good!
I never would have guessed that this camera would take such crisp, clear pictures. I have shot more than a half-dozen pkgs of film and every picture has turned out fine. Please understand...this is not a 35mm camera with all the bells & whistles. It is a Polaroid instant camera (w/ flash) that produces good, instant pictures. That being said, it is very rugged and durable and will tolerate adverse weather better than your 35mm will. I have taken pictures in the rain w/o problems - you only have to remember to protect the film when it exits the camera. It needs to be kept dry & warm...just like any polaroid.
If you go into this with the correct expectations, you will not be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the guy who has everything...
This camera is a great idea for someone who has everything, and who likes to do home improvement projects and keep track of them. It's quick to use, and has great space for reference for each project. And, it's easy enough to use to document little parts of each individual project, to see the details necessary. I'd recommend it for a home improvement buff who is hard to buy for. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Polaroid JoyCam Kit includes Polaroid's latest JoyCam camera model and a 10-frame film cartridge. The Polaroid JoyCam is a revision of the instant camera design that made Polaroid famous. It has a small body in comparison to its bulky predecessors and offers a frame counter and a built-in selectable flash with a flash-ready light. Easy enough for a child to use, the Polaroid JoyCam operates with the push of a single button--no focusing is necessary.

The design feature that sets the Polaroid JoyCam apart from other instant cameras is its film delivery system--or lack of one. Traditional instant cameras relied on film cartridges with built-in batteries to enable the camera to expel each shot; however, this model works without a battery. Instead, users pull a plastic ring on the side of the camera to extract the exposed frame. This manual process enables Polaroid to offer a lighter camera body and compatible instant film cartridges at a more reasonable price.

The Polaroid JoyCam takes pictures at a range of 3 feet to infinity. It works with Polaroid 500 instant film and produces pictures that measure 4.4 by 2.5 inches, which is slightly smaller than traditional Polaroid shots. The kit includes one box of Polaroid 500 film, providing you with everything you need to start snapping pictures immediately. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Choice! , Get this one!
My daughter wanted the Polaroid I zone. After the reviews on Amazon about the I zone, I chose the Joycam. Great choice. Picture quality is excellent! Pictures compare favorably to my Polaroid Spectra. For indoor shot's, Watch out ,and make sure that when you want to take a picture, that you turn the flash on first ,or you will lose a shot. Fun camera ,great pictures ,great choice!! Thanks to all the Amazon customers that wrote reviews on the I zone , and saved me frustration!

3-0 out of 5 stars very pleased with the Joycam
I purchased this camera not too long ago and I must say I'm pretty pleased with it. The picture quality was much better than anyone told me to expect, it rivals if not beats its polaroid brothers and sisters in terms of quality. The pictures are fun to take at get-togethers and just hoarsing around, however the high cost of film caused me to rate this product at three stars. After the rebate, the film costs as much as the original camera! Overall it's stupidly simple to operate, drop in the film and go. It's as simple as that. The quality of the camera is a bit lacking, but who's complaining for the price it's at? Overall, it's a fun little toy to have at parties. I definitly recommend it to anyone looking for an instant camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars New purchase, Polaroid I Zone instant combo
I just purchaded a new Polaroid Instant Combo, which Ididn't see on your list of items, it is really neat. Digital for my computer on 1 side, and flip button back to instant small film shots on the other side. Have you seen this Combo?? Would like to get some feedback on this question.

Thanks, Sarah Siggins

2-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid makes better choices
In the last couple years Polaroid has introduced a raft of new products to position itself as a hip and affordable life-style accessory. These include the i-zone, PopShots, JoyCam and lately the Spectra FF. For 'bang for the buck', not one of these newcomers provide as much for as little as the old stand-by Polaroid One-Step. The JoyCam is a bit smaller than the OneStep, but dispenses with motorized print ejection and a lighten/darken control, and gives an image that is 1/3 smaller than the OneStep's. The 500 series film is a little less expensive per shot, but not a enough to justify losing so much image area. And since you can no longer adjust the camera to make lighter or darker images, the chance of getting disappointing shots - at about a buck a peice - is much greater. The JoyCam also gives up the ability to make close-ups between 2-4 feet, something the OneStep Close-up camera can do with the flick of a switch. Finally, the JoyCam makes rectangualr prints instead of the the OneStep's square images. Many people actually prefer this shape, but holding this oddly shaped camera steady while shooting vertical snapshots is going to be awkward at best. Do yourself a favor - for less than half the cost of a pack of film, get the OneStep instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the JOY of it!
I got this camera as a secret Santa gift last year and I love it. It's great for get togethers. It truly is instant fun! The cost of the film is a bit insane but when you factor in the lack of development fees and immediate satisfaction I manage to rationalize it. I have no complaints about the quality of pictures. They're not the best quality in the world but I am spending about [price]a picture- and that ain't that bad. The only complaint I really have is that on more than one occasion I have accidently hit the button and gotten a picture of the sky or driveway setting me off in a fit but that's about it. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Coupons???
hello, i have been a faithfull customer ofpolaroid for many years but this is my first time to ever visit this site on polaroid cameras and film. i admit i was only slightly empressed! the products and information given on them were very good and the wonderfull pictures of each item are great also. there is only one reason for my vist, to this site, that made me use my critical judgement, at the beginning of my letter. i dint feel as if this site and/or polaroid did'nt give there all in welcomeing us, the customer. i think that people today, when purshasing from any company but exspecially over the internet,we need to feel as if the company it self cares for there customers and really tries to get on a personal level with them. my advice to polaroid on getting to that personal level would to first start with offering specail offers to them, such as coupons and newsletters. are even a mailing list for them to sign up to. that informs them of different things, for example: special coupons assigned especially for polariod customers, to help them in there perchases with polariod, also maybe a catalog that fully shows and gives exallent details on each item that polaroid offers. i believe strongly this is affective and i am confadent that your company will also. families that are making the most perchases, and even those that seldomly make many perchases, both will be convinced that the order they made from you is of the best qaulity and for those customers that seldom make those perchases were helped in there dession to perchase, not only by the qaulity but the way the company went the extra mile. the extra effort given will soon be rewarded. well i hope that my advice to help your company in its coninouse of carring on the success and meeet even higher goals. thanks for listening to my suggestions and i hope you will concider me as one of your first of customers to recieve any mailings on/about disconts and offerings. thank you cassi hetzel

3-0 out of 5 stars im selling mine and going back to 35mm
I've had this camera for about a year. It works really well upclose, most of the times. Alot of the times the pictures come out really blurry, which is why I am selling it. I think it has to do with the auto focus and the flash it uses with each picture. In their next camera, they should have an option to turn the flash on and off, because when you use it, it's hard to get the lighting perfect. If the lighting isn't right, it comes out all smudged and blurry. I think for the price of film for this thing, it should have been made better. It has held up really good and all parts work still in the past year. The only problem is the pictures come out blurry too often.

5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun!
I received this kit for Christmas and was immediately snapping away! The Polaroid offers great color quality, portability, and ease of use. I take mine with me everywhere! The camera itself is very user-friendly. There are icons on the front to tell you which focus setting you need, and guess what the big yellow button is for? Also, the film is extremely easy to load. A classic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Instant cameras are great... smile! ^_^
I bought this camera, because my old camera is irritating me when I have one shot left to take to fill up the film and I don't have any idea what to shoot or waiting for the store to develop them for a whole day is way too long if you want them at the best price. This is a good camera if you take only one picture every week, but other cameras' instant film are cheaper at the same size. I used it when my family from an other country came as tourists and they had to leave the same day ; I couldn't run to develop films. The bigger the picture you want on instant film, the bigger the camera sould be, so don't complain.

If you take a lot of pictures and developping films aren't a problem to you and quality is essential, just buy a good film camera around $400 or $500, but they sure are bulky. That was the advice people gave me at many, many stores.

Anyways, cameras are cheaper in Canada... except the digital ones. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cute, Easy and Fun
The Polaroid Mio is an excellent camera. In fact, I may just be in love with mine. It is so cute, so much fun to use and takes great photos! Even the photos are cute - wallet size instead of the regular Polaroid square size.

I've used my Mio both indoors and outdoors and haven't had any trouble with photos not coming out. That's not to say that I haven't taken bad pictures, but that's no fault of the Mio. Even the bad ones come out in focus and colorful.

If you are a first time Mio buyer, I'd suggest stocking up on film. You'll have so much fun with this little guy that you'll use it much more than you think you will.

All in all, the Polaroid Mio is an incredible instant camera and well worth owning.

4-0 out of 5 stars great camera, a little bulky
I haven't had any of the problems others had in buying film. Not only does Amazon sell the film on line, but all target stores carry the film as well. Every picture comes out really cute, and I get the full 10 exposures. The camera is a little bulky, so its not great for carrying around, but its fun for parties. The credit card size photos makes it an unique polaroid camera

2-0 out of 5 stars for the excessively well-to-do & the ecologically oblivious

2.

shipping fee added to net cost of film unless you splurge
3.
the whole thing weighs almost a pound
yes, you CAN lug it around, but WILL you?
4.
not submersible
not sand-proof
not slam-dunk proof
not Janet Reno proof
not recyclable when the planned obsolescence kicks in

-implicate uniformed and secret police in untorward acts
-put your local minimum-wage photofinisher employee out of work

I love this camera so much! It is so easy to use and you get great wallet sized photos in an instant!

You get such good pictures with it too. Since the camera is so cute, all your friends will be smiling.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great pictures when it works...
The camera takes really cute puctures when it works, but I only succeeded in making 4 pictures when it froze on me. The camera froze in the open position and could not be closed no matter what I did. I eventually tossed it because it gave me far more aggravation than pleasure. For example, turn it on and it stays on from 2 to 15 seconds, rather arbitrarily. You can set up a shot, and, boom!, the camera shuts down. Turn it on again and it fails to work. Shut it off, turn it on and then it might work (or not). I suspect the elecronics were not well thought out. Don't waste your money. This was an extermely frustrating experience for me!
BTW: The manual, if one can call it that, is useless. ... Read more

Worked fine with my camera and easy to load.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun!
i'm a photographer that has just discovered Polaroids. I love my Joycam camera and the film-- the prints you get are small but detailed and colorful. They're like small works of art. Avoid shades of gray as the film works better with sunlight even though the flash unit works really well. I like my Joycam and prints so much I've created a Polaroid journal and I use the Polaroids to illustrate my journal with daily events and the special people in my life. The problem is, when you start shooting these little pictures at parties everyone will want a copy and, at a buck a piece, it can get expensive and you'll always be out of film so stock up.

Amazon.com Product Description

The Polaroid JoyCam is a revision of the instant camera design that made Polaroid famous. It has a small body in comparison to its bulky predecessors and offers a frame counter and built-in selectable flash with a flash-ready light. Easy enough for a child to use, the Polaroid JoyCam operates with the push of a single button--no focusing necessary.

The design feature that sets the Polaroid JoyCam apart from other instant cameras is its film delivery system--or lack of one. Traditional instant cameras relied on film cartridges with built-in batteries to enable the camera to expel each shot; however, this model works without a battery. Instead, users pull a plastic ring on the side of the camera to extract the exposed frame. This manual process enables Polaroid to offer a lighter camera body and compatible instant film cartridges at a more reasonable price.

The Polaroid JoyCam takes pictures at a range of three feet to infinity. It works with Polaroid 500 instant film and produces pictures that measure 4.4 by 2.5 inches, which is slightly smaller than traditional Polaroid shots. ... Read more

Some pictures don't come out at all, some come out ok, and some have to of one person's face.

1-0 out of 5 stars Most expensive bad photos EVER
If I could rate this product with a zero I would. I purchased this item, with 11 rolls of film, for our wedding reception so guests could have someone take a snapshot of themselves and put in the guest book with their well-wishes, a great idea I have seen work wonderfully at other receptions. Except that I chose the joycam instead of the standard polaroid - BAD CHOICE! First of all the camera was difficult to operate and people had trouble with the film jamming, etc. Because the film had been taken out of the boxes to put out on the guest book table none of it is returnable - and byt he time we returned from our honeymoon and had any time to contend with the issue, the whole lot had been in our hands for more than 30 days thus unreturnable. Basically, don't ever buy this product, or any other product by polaroid that isn't it's basic one-step instamatic...just a huge waste of time and money and hugely dissapointing if you are planning to use it for a once in a lifetime event at which it breaks after just a few shots.

4-0 out of 5 stars Joycam- what fun!
I just got a Joycam, and think it is great fun. Its a fairly big camera, but not at all compared to other polaroids. Its still small enough to take out with you anyhow. And If you've never had a polaroid (I haven't) its great fun to watch the photos developing too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Its fun!
I've had my JoyCam for a year now and its become a regular feature at parties. My friends love it and so do I. Now it doesn't replace having real photos which I still take...and you can't do anything fancy with it...but it is fun! Looking from the logical side - the camera itself is quite cheap and the film relatively expensive - about $... for 10 pictures. The camera is lightweight plastic, fairly large in size and not at all high tech.....but looking from a purely fun factor I love it! You get instant pictures at parties and I scan them and share them with friends the next day so we all have copies. The novelty value still hasn't worn off with my friends...perhaps we're just easy to please :-)

3-0 out of 5 stars Not complaining
This is my first Polaroid and suits me just fine, for a very good price. The pictures are smallish, about 2.5-3.0 inches by 2 inches. The quality is fair, fine for everday shots. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! a motorized winder!
The world of the One Time Use Camera is certainly changing. First we have the Kodak High Definition Camera's come out in 2003-04 with super-fine grain pictures. Then this year Fuji bring out a "Quicksnap Smart Flash" camera which has 2 Flash options and gives brighter backgrounds in nightime shots. Now Polaroid has brought this camera out which winds the film after each shot automatically! Wonder which of the film giants will be the first to release a One Time Use camera complete with a self-timer? :o) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Olaroid OneStep is the best!
I'm an amature photographer. I love taking pictures, exept waiting to see how they come out. With Polaroid OneStep Express Instant Camera I can take great pictures without having to wait to see what my pictures look like.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cheap Thrills
I bought mine at WalMart 2 years ago because I wanted something inexpensive and easy to fool around with. I was not expecting good quality pictures...and I was not disappointed.

But a funny thing happened when I was learning Photoshop.Needing images to work on, I scanned in my crappy snapshots at a fairly high resolution and was amazed at what appeared on my screen.Then I played with color,contrast,levels,etc.You can probably get the same results with any of the cheaper photo editting programs that are out there.

This only seems to be true for daylight pics.Everything I've taken after dark sucks because of the damn automatic flash.
Recently I tried a pack of the black and white film and the results were really cool.The camera itself cost about 30 bucks,but without a scanner and software the pics are pretty worthless.However it is incredibly easy to use and you can usually find good deals on the film which is available everywhere (for now anyway)The B/W film is a little harder to find,but worth it.

And I'll even admit to sneaking up on my sleeping cat for a candid close up...the motor whirrs as the camera spits out the picture and the puzzled look on his face is priceless.

3-0 out of 5 stars Spiffier cosmetics for Polaroid's classic choice
Lately Polaroid has been busy trying to light a fire under their flagging sales by introducing a raft of 'life-style accessory' cameras: the i-zone, JoyCam, PopShots and most recently, the Spectra FF. But its their oldest model, the One Step, that offers the most bang for the buck. The i-zone, PopShots and JoyCam models foolishly have dispensed with Polaroid's traditional lighten/darken control. Since Polaroid instant film has a rather narrow range of tone and contrast, an exposure that's sligthly too light or dark can be much more disappointing than if it were shot with a conventional camera. And at nearly a buck a pop, disappointing snapshots get pretty expensive. The One Step still has a slide control for adjusting exposure, which gives you some chance of salvaging a shot that otherwise wouldn't impress. The One Step models also give you a swing-in close-up lens for getting more pleasing portrait shots.

The newer One Step Express and Silver Edition models offer the same features, plus an adjustable hand strap in a spiffed-up package; its your call as to whether the strap and added swoop is worth the extra ten bucks. Polaroid's other new-comer, the Spectra 1200FF offers essentially the same features with a wider-angle lens, fold-up body and rectangular format film.... For practical features in a reliable, bargain-priced package, the One Step Close-up model is the pick of the lot.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for an instant camera
This camera is relatively easy to use and the pictures are very good quality. I think it's important to remember that these cameras are for fun spontaneous moments like at parties and trips to amusement parks. It's an "INSTANT" camera and it does it's job very well.

4-0 out of 5 stars decent pict
I forgot to add that I had a heck of a time understanding the flash business on the manual. My pictures came out pretty good. Pretty surprised for a Polaroid. The case is kind of cool-turns into a fanny pack which is perfect for a busy parent who needs both hands. ... Read more
