Summary: I bought this product because I am a Polaroid freak. Its unique and is as basic a point and shoot as it gets. I like that its easy to use and a great conversational piece. You can still get film through Impossible Project and here on Ebay. The pricing for the film is quite high but for the wider format picture you get, it's well worth it( don't buy super old fim as the chemicals will have dried up and wont spread evenly).
Summary: Im in love with everything Polaroid right now and this camera helped I had never owned a spectra but as a later model it has some better features I'm really enjoying it the film is the hardest part but aside from that its a beautiful example of a Polaroid camera
Summary: This is one of those Polaroids that are no longer manufactured. If deciding to purchase this camera ensure that the film door latch is functioning properly both releasing and catching when opening and closing. Also, check that the lens cover opens and closes properly to protect the lens (this MAY BE a minor concern in that you may be able to open and close the cover manually with a slight nudge) ** The film for this camera is available at IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT for a nominal...
Summary: Pros: A simple to use Polaroid camera. You press the button it takes a shot! You are able to flick a switch to change between portrait and landscape mode (this switches lens internally) Picture quality gives you the typical Polaroid quality of image...(i.e. not as clear or colourful as 35mm, but has its own characteristics that people like) This camera allows you to use the 12 exposure films as well as the 10 exposure films available in this polaroid film format.
Summary: Camera does not work, the film was about 5 years past expiration date. I was eager to use even the film that I had purchased prior to buying the camera and I merely ended up wasting it because the camera does not work.
Summary: The Spectra 1200FF is a great looking camera, especially among the later Polaroids, and it has the widest angle lens of any of the cameras using the Spectra Image integral film. Unfortunately, it is just as dumbed down as most of the 600 cameras. FF stands for fixed focus, not auto focus or manual focus, fixed focus. There are two focus settings, one for regular use and one for closer (not close up). There is no self timer. There is a viewfinder.
Summary: I found this camera at a thrift store in perfect condition. I popped some film in and tested it, and here's what I found. Even in bright daylight, this camera always fires the flash. This can get to be very annoying when you want to use beautiful natural light instead of the harsh flash. Other earlier Spectra cameras have a flash override switch, which lets you turn it off when you want.
Summary: i really likes it.. although i'm not sure of how much it will cost me if i buy it and it gets shipped here in the philippines. it's gorgeous and it looks sleek and convenient. flat and it has instant photos. it't like a polaroid land camera + digital camera all in one!
