One of my most adored gifts from this past Christmas has been my Polaroid Snap Instant Camera. Lately it's been my constant companion on walks around Charleston and I love photographing all the intricate textures found along the way. It also has a 10 second timer feature perfect for group shots that takes 4 images and prints out on one sheet; the results of which I'll keep to myself :)
My favorite setting is Sepia with a nice border. The color setting works great with a limited palette, like blues, but looks a little washed out when a lot of color is involved. Another potential plus of this camera is that it stores all your shots on a memory card, but it's honestly something I'm not too interested in using. I love trying to frame a shot, the delightful noise it makes when printing, and the always unexpected result! It's ironic given the age of internet immediacy that I'm delighted by a device that takes a little time.
I've officially caught the instant camera bug and I've been eyeing up the Instax mini/ full size from FujiFilm - especially the rainbow paper that it can print on! Please let me know what you think of your instant camera of choice!
