Polaroid 300 Instant Camera Review

Polaroid has come back from the grave as it refused to lay low and leave the digital camera market with the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera. No, it’s not your typical digital camera as the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera is an instant camera for today’s time.

 

It may seem odd that in an age of digital cameras and smartphones that a device catering to instant camera is odd. The Polaroid 300 Instant Camera brings back that nostalgia, fun and excitement of instant photography of the past despite the same functions can be done with digital cameras. The difference between this unit and digital cameras is the physical look and feel of a film being instantly developed right in your eyes after taking a picture. Yes, Polaroid stopped making those film cartridges, but a third party manufacture was able to continue with the tradition. The Polaroid 300 Instant Camera is basically a Fujifilm product but is designed and manufactured as a Polaroid camera. It essentially has all the features of what a Polaroid camera is all about.

 

Loading the film is easy as all you have to do is drop the film cartridge, hit the shutter button, the camera power up, wait for 12 seconds to load and off you go shooting pictures. Sure, it takes a handful of steps just to take a picture and that the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera is not suitable for multiple shots involving moving subjects. Nevertheless, the real beauty and appeal of the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera is that your photo will be developed instantly. The film cartridges used in the Polaroid 300 are credit card sized. This makes it easier to place and carry in your wallet. These film cartridges comes in packs of ten and are light sealed. The cartridges also feature that white tab space where you can label the picture. Colors in the film when developed in the unit comes out fine but some may be disappointed as it is nowhere near what the predecessors have achieved in terms of colors and saturation.

 

The Polaroid 300 Instant Camera features four pictures modes that you can try like bright sunlight to indoors. It doesn’t have a zoom function and that the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera doesn’t have that a higher resolution. At first glance, the device doesn’t look like it is a working camera as it looks plastic like and bigger than most digital cameras. The Polaroid 300 is exactly what you saw: plastic built larger than today’s digital camera yet smaller than its predecessors. It also gives another toy like feeling as it is powered by 4 AA batteries. The lens of this unit is big and wide which is perfect in capturing that Polaroid moment. All in all, the Polaroid 300 Instant Camera has achieved what modern gadgets have rarely done: bringing back the joy of simplicity and nostalgia. The photos may turn out blurred, grainy and washed out, and that is what this product is all about.

  • The Good :
    Built in Flash, Four Different Settings, Nostalgic Appeal
  • The Bad :
    Expensive Film, Plastic Build
Our score:
4.5 / 5
