Perfectly Polaroid

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Nowadays, with the likes of photoshop, piknic, photobox and iPhone apps, we can all be budding photographers working our techy magic and creating amazing images at the drop of a hat. We can make snazzy photobooks, airbrush pimples or order giant colour canvass prints from groupon (or was that just me?). But what I treasure the most from all of my photography thingymabobs, are the little polaroid pictures that line my mantle piece. Tiny glimpses of memories on miniature bits of card really seem to float my boat.

After yearning for a polaroid camera for about nine hundred years, I started mooching around on my beloved ebay and thought I would share some of my findings with you, in case like me, you love all things polaroid too.

THIS SHOP is a virtual treasure trove of polaroid and other vintage cameras. At first I was going to just give you the Black Rainbow Camera link, but when I saw what else the shop had to offer, I thought I best just include the lot!



If you wanted to take a more modern approach, THIS little package looks super! You get a Fuji Instant Instax Mini 7S Polaroid Camera, plus the film, plus a snazzy case. Also, it's pink. What more could you want?

Or, if you were feeling really modern, THIS is a teeny weeny printer which you can attach to your camera and instantly print out polaroid-esque shots. Again, it's pink and not that pricey, so all my boxes are ticked!

I have a bit of money in my paypal account that I suspect is burning a polaroid shaped hole. Ebay, here I come!

What about you? Do instant snaps light your fire?

Toodlepip!

  4. Hello m'love,. I adore the good old Polaroid :), no app will ever come close to the feeling of having your very own image, there in your hands to hold, frame etc and so forth. My only advice is too look at what kind of film it takes then have a browse for the film online as it can be very expensive ( no wonder people choose to just use the apps as photography can cost a lot),. I have a vintage Polaroid from back in the day and was lucky to stumble across Asda selling off old film a while ago, but apart from that its pretty expensive to buy online. Hope this is a help, I really don't want to dampen your Polaroid dreams, just don't want you to end up spending lots on a camera you can rarely use, I think the newer ones are the best bet as the film is probs more widely available.
    Stay Classy

  8. I love Polaroid! I had one when I was at uni & they are still some of my favourite photo's ever.

    Sometimes you get an accidental double exposure (sounds a bit rude!) but they always turn out kind of cool looking!

  11. I've been itching for a Polaroid camera for aaaaages!

    I have a Diana F+ lomography camera which you can buy a Polaroid attachment back for, so I think I'm probably going to buy one of those to use soon! Exciting!

  12. I've been wanting one for ages, but the film is just way too expensive to justify me buying one! xx

  17. Great post :)

    I love instant cameras! I was actually searching the net not so long ago for one but they all seemed so expensive!
    I have a Polaroid i-zone camera, which is ANCIENT! I don't know if it still works, as I am out of film and when I looked for film it was really hard to find, or stupidly priced! I loved that camera! I have a box with all my old sticky-back i-zone photos in somewhere... Ah, memories :)

  26. Awww thanks for this post! Just a couple of days ago I was saying I'd love a cheap polaroid camera but had no idea where to find an affordable one. Plus everywhere I looked were cameras that plug into printers to print off pictures which wasn't at all what I wanted! Well pleased with this! xxx
