The Polaroid One instant camera is very user friendly. It’s intended to be a point and shoot that offers just a little extra with a self timer, auto exposure, auto flash (with override), and a tripod socket. And with the name Polaroid you know you’re getting a good camera with great instant pictures. Many owners of older Polaroids report that their cameras are still working fine, and that they pass it on to the kids in favor of the Polaroid One, with its small, lightweight and very sleek design.

The Polaroid One instant camera is very user friendly. It’s intended to be a point and shoot that offers just a little extra with a self timer, auto exposure, auto flash (with override), and a tripod socket. And with the name Polaroid you know you’re getting a good camera with great instant pictures. Many owners of older Polaroids report that their cameras are still working fine, and that they pass it on to the kids in favor of the Polaroid One, with its small, lightweight and very sleek design.

The best feature of the Polaroid One is that the film comes with built in batteries. There’s never a need to worry about dead or forgotten batteries with this camera. What kind of film? The standard 600 that’s easy to find everywhere, and that provides a space at the bottom on which to label your images right after they’re developed. You can also use 779 film for higher speed and an even sharper image even in low lighting. On average each picture costs you $1.00, and there’s no waiting!

There are other nice features of the Polaroid One too. In particular it closes to 4.2” x 2/6” x 6” making it much smaller than the older Polaroids. It’s not overly obvious at that size either, making it easier to surprise someone at a perfect picture moment. The Polaroid One also has auto flash override if you don’t want a flash going off in someone’s face or during a very special occasion where it might distract, and the ability to be mounted on a tripod set for self-time so you can join in your pictures!

You’ll get between 3-10 feet of range from the flash and it charges up in a fast 6 seconds from the Polaroid One, a focal length of 100mm and a shutter speed of 1/200 seconds. About the only drawback is not being able to do close shots. Anything under 3’ looses clarity. Nonetheless, that’s a very minor flaw in a camera that costs only about $40.00.
