5-0 out of 5 stars The best polaroid camera so far
The last polaroid camera I owned was in the early 70's. I remember squeezing the sides of the shutter button to get a "yes" or a "no" in my view finder before I could take the picture. I also remember pushing single flash bulbs into the flash pocket in front of the camera. Taking a picture with a polaroid was always an event. Despite the fact that this was the only instant camera around, I always felt I had to take my time to get the best picture possible. And, I didn't want to waste precious film as it cost so much. And, it was all black and white (which now have an archival quality to them).

It was with this nostalgia that I purchased this camera and I was delighted. First of all, I love the new compact, sleek design. The camera is still fairly large and heavy. The photo quality is good but not great. No more peeling film or inserting flash bulbs. There are some sophisticated extras on this camera but my favorite is the auto-timer, so now I can take photos of myself. I lent it to a friend who needed to take photos of bridesmaid gowns she was considering to show her sister who was getting married and my friend was hooked. I had to beg for the camera back. Despite the so-so picture quality there's no getting around the "fun" factor of a polaroid. In spite of all the digital technology and sophisticated cameras now available, there is still an itch that only a polaroid can satisfy. I love my polaroid. Get this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars very good
i first bought this as a present for a friend of mine. After i took a few pictures with it,i was honestly very impressed! The picture quality was very good, not great.
The camera was slightly big and in a little bit of an odd shape to hold, but i didnt mind that too much.
Id recommend this camera, but not if your looking for excellent picture quality. Its still a fun camera and really convientant how you dont need to have it developed!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Every picture we took with this camera came out
great! We used it at our wedding for the guest book and I was so happily surprised how great they all came out! Some of the best pictures we have are from this camera!

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Pictures
I'm a Great Grandmother who finds this camera very easy to use. Big improvement over the first Poloroid instant camera which I owned. When I bought this Sprecta 1200si there was a camera case on the same page which I also bought. However, it didn't fit this camera! I would like to know where I can buy one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Photos
The Polaroid Spectra 1200si, using the bright Spectra film, produces superb photos in almost any circumstance. The camera focuses automatically, beeping if you are too close to your subject, and adjusts to various lighting conditions.

The timer feature is simple to use, giving off a very helpful insistent beeping as the picture is about to be taken - rather than taking a photo of you telling your family the camera's about to take a picture, it takes a photo of everyone paying attention to the beeping Spectra.

If all of this beeping is too much to bear, you can set the camera to a silent mode.

I use a variety of Polaroid and Minolta APS cameras for art and family photos. When I need a reliably good picture right away, I reach for the Spectra and am rarely disappointed. Polaroid, by the way, is an extremely responsive company with great technical assistance and customer service. ... Read more

Should you really "shake it like a Polaroid picture?"
Ever since the song "Hey Ya" by Andre 3000 of Outkast came out, everyone is shaking their Polaroid pictures. Shaking or waving a Polaroid picture to help the development process originated in the early days of peel-apart film. After peeling the negative, the image needed to dry before it could be handled, so waving the photo helped it to dry more quickly. When using the integral films (600, Spectra, 500, SX-70/Time-Zero, i-Zone) that are used in our most popular current camera models (Polaroid One, OneStep, JoyCam, etc.), the image develops and dries behind a clear plastic window and never touches the air, so shaking or waving has no effect. In fact, excessive shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause "blobs" in the picture. The best way to ensure a perfectly developed image is to simply lay the picture on a flat surface immediately after it exits the camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best instant camera although it's my first
ok. even though i didn't have much info. about this product, i really needed an instant camera and
other products at amazon were not very tempting or pretty. so i had no better choice than to just purchase this.

i've been using this camera for about a week. and i've taken about 15 pictures[trying to save films]
and the results are just beautifully fine! some of the pictures
are just so lovely with great color and texture. also self-timer is really useful.
but i really never used red-eye preventing button yet. but i assume that's also helpful

if you want to check how the picture would look, look in here:

so if you're trying to buy an instant camera and don't know what to buy,
try this one. other cameras are too cheap or too expensive
this camera is just right amount of money to spend with great results!

i greatly recommned it ^-^

5-0 out of 5 stars Great results from a 'construction' camera
I bought this camera at a going-out-of-business sale at a local retail store about a year ago. I thought the 'construction' nature of the camera would make it more durable, while still providing fairly good pictures. Little did I know that the pictures would be so good!
I never would have guessed that this camera would take such crisp, clear pictures. I have shot more than a half-dozen pkgs of film and every picture has turned out fine. Please understand...this is not a 35mm camera with all the bells & whistles. It is a Polaroid instant camera (w/ flash) that produces good, instant pictures. That being said, it is very rugged and durable and will tolerate adverse weather better than your 35mm will. I have taken pictures in the rain w/o problems - you only have to remember to protect the film when it exits the camera. It needs to be kept dry & warm...just like any polaroid.
If you go into this with the correct expectations, you will not be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the guy who has everything...
This camera is a great idea for someone who has everything, and who likes to do home improvement projects and keep track of them. It's quick to use, and has great space for reference for each project. And, it's easy enough to use to document little parts of each individual project, to see the details necessary. I'd recommend it for a home improvement buff who is hard to buy for. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe the Hype!!!
I went to Frye's Electronics 3 weeks ago to purchase the Creative Labs 40GB Zen Xtra, when I noticed this product. I was impressed by the included FM tuner - complete with 10 presets (it even records FM programs to MP3 files), the voice recorder, and the nice large LCD screen. It was also priced within $10.00 of the Zen Xtra, so I opted for this unknown (unresearched) option.

The sound was great, and I really loved how easy and logical the modified joysick-style selector button works. A week later, and after loading over 19GB of data to its hard drive, the thing simply locked-up and would not reboot. Fry's promptly replaced it for another. The second player's screen began to fade beyond readability after 4 days. That window gave me time to remove most of my data, and return the second Juke Jam to the store.

This time, I traded it for the Zen Xtra. I have had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS with the Creative Labs model. The product rep was there in the store. He told me they recently upgraded the firmware, allowing simple drag-and-drop tranfer of data. It not only performs better, but it also has an AWESOME EAX sound enhancement tool. Honestly, it made my very basic car stereo sound like I was listening to my BOSE home theater!!!

He mentioned they should be releasing a player with an FM-tuner soon, but I wanted my portable music option sooner. The features of these two items may appear to be similiar; in fact, the Polaroid features look better. But, I have to put my money (nearly $300.00) where the quality is. Creative Labs created a portable music experience! I don't mean to sound like some kind of spokesman for CL, but this thing simply ROCKS!!!

Did I mention it's nearly $200.00 cheaper than the IPOD (which by the way, does not play the smaller sized, better quality WMA files). I LOVE the size of the IPOD, but that feature doesn't come close to justifying it's $489.00 price tag. Macintosh has once again, priced themselves out of the market. Sure there are thousands of people that have IPODs, but they could have cornered the entire MP3 portalbe player market. Fortunately, Apple once again let the competition create feature packed players for $100.00's of dollars less.

If you want real quality in a player that plays MP3, WMA's, and features an unmatched sound processor, go with the Zen Xtra. If you've got the money, and don't really need as much space as I do, get the IPOD. Otherwise, wait for more of the research and design to shake-out in this industry. There are sure to be some very interesting innovations coming to this Christmas!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great depending on what you're using it for
Sure, the picture quality isn't nearly as good as a 35mm. Sure, the film is expensive and you only get ten exposures.

However, it's an INSTANT CAMERA. They're not known for their superior picture clarity and amazing color. If that's what you're looking for, then don't buy this camera.

I don't know a lot about cameras. I don't know anything about Polaroid and the technology behind the Polaroid One, but I can tell you that I am 100% pleased with this camera as it fits my needs perfectly. I'm using it to take a photograph every day of my 15 month old son to send to my husband who is doing a year long tour in Iraq.

The camera is uncomplicated, relatively compact, and the film loads easily. The picture quality is better than what I remember from my childhood in the 70s, but not much. (Again, I'm not complaining. I expected this. The purpose for stating that is so others will not expect too much.)

If you're buying it for a specific purpose and not to be your primary camera, then you'll be 110% satisfied. I am.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Polaroids
I've used Polaroid cameras off and on since the Swinger came out in the 60's. I've had the SX-70 and the One Step. The Polaroid One is by far the easiest to use. The LCD film counter on the back is easy to read and the pictures are clear. The camera takes type 660 film or even takes type 779 professional film for better colors and better clarity. The camera is solidly built, fits into your hand comfortably and is easy to carry thanks to a two position hand strap. Polaroids have always been fun cameras. This one is no exception.

2-0 out of 5 stars not so great
If you're in the perfect lighting this camera takes good pictures but most of the pictures I've taken are very blury or the colors are way off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Choice!
Polaroids generally are a little awkward to handle, but this one is a very good basic model with very easy-to-use and fundamental features (red-eye reduction, timer). It handles light in a straightforward fashion, but can also be sensitive and manipulated for nice effect. Also, I dropped it on the floor and it kept working - you can't ask for more than that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera! Worth Every Penny!!!!
Well when I first bought this camera I was a bit skeptical. I've never owned any thing similar to this. I must admit, the commercial caught my attention so much I just HAD TO GET IT!!! And I'm happy I did. I bit heavy, but I guess all of the similar ones are too. Very easy to use, although I didn't know it came without film which I purchased seperately at the store. It uses polaroid 600 film. The film is very easy to load. The picture quality is amazing. Extremely clear and good pictures. The cool thing about this camera is that it automatically turns on with flash, which you can take it off, it has a self timer so you can also be in any picture. It has a handy carrying strap. Although, if the camera case is available, I think you're better off. Hope this helps! Take care. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid's old-timer is their standout bargain
Lately Polaroid has been busy trying to light a fire under their flagging sales by introducing a raft of 'life-style accessory' cameras: the i-zone, JoyCam, PopShots and most recently, the Spectra FF. But its their oldest model, the One Step, that offers the most bang for the buck. The i-zone, PopShots and JoyCam models foolishly have dispensed with Polaroid's traditional lighten/darken control. Since Polaroid instant film has a rather narrow range of tone and contrast, an exposure that's sligthly too light or dark can be much more disappointing than if it were shot with a conventional camera. And at nearly a buck a pop, disappointing snapshots get pretty expensive. The One Step still has a slide control for adjusting exposure, which gives you some chance of salvaging a shot that otherwise wouldn't impress. The One Step models also give you a swing-in close-up lens for getting more pleasing portrait shots.

The newer One Step Express and Silver Edition models offer the same features, plus an adjustable hand strap in a spiffed-up package; its your call as to whether the strap and added swoop is worth the extra ten bucks. Polaroid's other new-comer, the Spectra 1200FF offers essentially the same features with a wider-angle lens, fold-up body and rectangular format film. Its also nearly twice as ... For practical features in a reliable, bargain-priced package, the One Step Close-up model is the pick of the lot.

5-0 out of 5 stars The fun of it is the most important part
I definately love this camera. It's incredibly fun and gratifying to get your pictures developed a minute after you take them, and this camera in all honesty isn't meant to be professional. If you want professional quality go buy an slr or a digital. This kind of camera should be purely considered for enjoyment. Yes it is heavy but not in a way that makes it uncomfortable--it's bulk makes it nostalgic. It has very basic camera features and is one of, if not the, easiet camera i've ever used--just shove the film in and go. The camera takes decent quality pictures and tends to put a slight sepia tint on them when taken inside, but i consider that a cool trademark effect. The features of this camera include a lens that can be slid over to take closer pictures, a sliding numberless aperture setting, built in flash, and a button that lets you control the use of your flash. The only drawback is the fact that you can't take pictures closer than 2 feet (like all polaroid cameras). The lens of the camera also makes ojects closer to the camera larger in proportion to ojects farther from the cameraon the prints but it's not incredibly noticable. Overall, I enjoy it very much and would whole-eartedly recommend it for anyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Handy Cam
This is a nice camera for those quick instant photos you want of people. However the size of it is large and the photos aren't exactly TOP quality. It's nice to have for those quick shots to show right away. The actual picture aren't something you put in a scrapbook or picture book, but I wouldn't buy this camera for those reasons. These pictures are ment for the refrigerator or a bulliten board to look at on your way out or for quick viewing. Thats why I like it because the pictures are nice to look at, but they're not priceless pictures that you treasure. So in conclusion, I would highly recommend this camera for fun and quick purposes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Oops... I dropped it again
This camera feels like hold a huge sandwich. This thing almost slipped out of my hands when I was tired, but the bad thing was when the retailer swept the dust off the camera to show it to me. And then BANG! he took a picture of me when I least suspect it. The flash stunned me for a while...

If you are short of funds and size matters, this is okay as it is.

The thing that disapointed me was that when I tried to take a picture, I had to look through the little hole with my unperfect vision. It's like lokking at a one centimeter squared picture and you want to see the details.

Since I don't want to type more, you must read other reviews of the other cameras. It's not my fault if I like to critic products... people even told me to... huh... read books, because i'm 15 and I spend a lot of time buying stuff.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay pictures, but...
The first thing I did with this camera was how comfortable taking pictures with it was. I had problems seeing the subject, because it had a very small view so my nose just keep hitting the camera just to get the best view with this thing. That's my reason it's not THAT good of a camera.

I saw that more expensive cameras usually takes better pictures. The retailer took two pictures with two different cameras and one seemed darker and less vibrant(guess which one is the more expensive one).

Finally, I just don't know why, in Canada, films for these cameras are just too expensive. It cost me two dollars every picture! At that price, I rather buy a SRL camera. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars GET IN PHOTO WHAT YOU SEE OR DO ...NOW AND PRIVATE!!!
The best choice for any occasion. If there was an auto-picturing system I would give it a 5*.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-purpose camera.
It kills me that Polaroid is doing so poorly these days. I've got several old Polaroid cameras, and they've stopped making film for them. I just bought this new one very recently, and it takes great pictures, end of story.

To say "the film is expenisive" is not a helpful critique of this, or any Polaroid camera. That's just the way it is. Think of the money you spend on 35mm film, and then seperate processing. That's why Polaroid film costs more money.

This Spectra takes sharp focused pics at all distances. It's a far cry from the old fixed focus, or manual focus Polaroid cameras. The minimum distance from the object is something like 2 feet, which means it can't focus too close, which is a shame, but Polaroid also makes the Spectra 1200FF which is a fixed wide-angle focus, so it has some macro features.

Good camera, very versitile. Forget digital cameras, support Polaroid and keep them alive.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun camera
I own this camera. It is a fun "grab and go" camera when you see something and need a take a quick picture. It's fun at family and friends get to gethers, but the film is a little expensive, but what the heck, have fun anyway. If you need to document something for your insurance company, or want to keep a photo record of your collection, it works very good. All in all, a good camera to keep with you at all times, "just in case."

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good camera.
I was excited to try out the new polaroid camera using the bigger film. What a waste, if you want a great polarid camera you are going to have to go to some special camera shop, if you want a decent one don't buy this just get the old stand by, one step (...), its just as good as this camera if not better. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Use
The Polaroid PDC 1100 is my first digital camera. I am a "point and shoot" autofocus kind of person, recently using an APS camera, and before that a 35 mm. Within a couple of hours of taking the PDC 1100 out of the box I was e-mailing pictures to family. Clarity is great, works well with a 16 MB compact flash card (60+ pictures on VGA setting). The all inclusive kit has all the cables and software you'll need, plus an AC adapter and high quality alkaline batteries. Skip getting a flash card reader unless you're really impatient - the camera works fast enough, about 30 seconds to download a photo. The TV display option with this camera is a hoot, and brings the era of vacation slide-shows for friends and families into the 21st century....

5-0 out of 5 stars SUPER!!! Polaroid PDC 100
Had it for a month, works great, picture quality, resolution, colors, ease of use, download of pictures, TV connection, etc. ALL work perfectly, REALLY! Overjoyed indeed. Thought I'd get the Olympus 360L, but glad I didn't.

I use an iMac and bought a Lexar 32mb Compact Flash card and enclosed reader. No problems! Additionally, Virtual PC v3 also loads Windows 98 PDC programs and I can download and photo-edit with W-98 software also. Friends with higher-end cameras are amazed.

I have absolutely NO complaints at all, and am totally satisfied. (Sounds as tho I work for Polaroid, but I'm retired from a different field). Just a GREAT product and I'm puzzled as to why the camera hasn't received more media acclaim/notice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest..
I bought this cause I needed something fast and didn't want to spend a lot of money. The unit ok ok. It eats batteries fast and picture quality is mediocre at best. I should have ponied up the cash for a better camera.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, even for the low price
For the price, I might have accepted the noisy images, the blurry focus, and the slow response time when taking a picture. But the camera showed poor quality from the beginning, with a dim screen, flaky behavior when pressing the selector wheel, a battery cover that failed to stay closed, and poor compatibility with standard CF memory cards. Finally, within a year of purchase, the screen died and the picture counter failed.

Oh, and the rebate that was offered at the time of sale was a scam. Lots of bouncing between Amazon and Polaroid before determining that the rebate was offered by the Polaroid distributer, whos non-toll-free number hangs up after five minutes on hold.

All in all, the aggravation wasn't worth the difference in price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid PhotoMAX PDC 1100 Digital Camera Shines!
I have had the Polaroid PhotoMax PDC 1100 digital camera for over two years now. I really like it, it has performed well. However, I must mention two items I needed to purchase in order to make this a great camera:

1. AA battery charger, saves a lot of money on batteries. 2. Extra flash memory. I bought 64 MB of flash memory which is actually over kill. I can now get approx. 108 photos on super quality (the top choice).

Keep in mind that the above purchases can be used in many other electronic hardware, so the purchase was not only isolated for the use with the digital camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, instant photos!
This is a fun little printer. Prints small polaroid prints from digital compact flash card. This is great when you have kids- They enjoy seeing the image when it's still in the digital camera but enjoy seeing the actual print (especially as the image develops on the film) even more!

The prints are very small- actually quite convenient for wallet size. This is a convenient printer to bring along on a vacation when you really want a print before returning home.

4-0 out of 5 stars Print without the computer
This printer is exactly as advertised. This device will print 2x3 inch prints on polaroid film. The quality is typical polaroid instant prints that we've all seen. It's easy to load the film and the nice thing is that the film pack provides the power, so you don't need any external power. If your digital camera has a print option, this printer will read that and allow you to print just those pictures marked for printing--quick and easy. If not, it's still easy to use. You just need to know what picture number you want to print. It's easy to quickly scroll through all the prints on the memory card. Pressing and holding the scroll button on this printer quickly advances through the prints on the memory card. The price per print is a bit high...I wouldn't pay the original price for this, which was over[$]... Without the rebate, it's ok if you want to print pictures away from your computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Neat little unit
For the price, size and quality its more novelty than serious printer, but its a good sort of novelty.

Pictures are small, but are on par with any other polaroid style camera. Good for scrapbooking, or checking images off LCD for digicams etc.

I bought mine in the hope it'd work with my P800 cell phones infrared, it didn't. Works fine with my nikon coolpix though.

The manual in mine says shoulderstrap included, however on the box it says it isn't,and it wasn't, not really a big deal though.

Haven't had a chance to see how easy it is to pickup film yet, but given its compatible with the joycam it should be reasonable easy.

The interface is ok, its a little terse but once you see where they were going its perfectly acceptable.

Prints come out fast, take a little while to appear.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing for the price!
I have been in the computer business for a long time (worked for Microsoft and Intel) and decided to buy this digital camera to get my feet wet. I just resigned from the workforce due to the arrival of my second child and wanted to buy a camera that had at least 640 x 480 and was reasonably priced. When I saw the special price on this, I grabbed it and have not been disappointed at all. It is an amazing camera for the price. I have found that I don't need the flash at all - even in low lights indoors. As far as people reporting "fuzziness", you have to keep the camera still and take pictures within the borders of the viewfinder which can be a bit deceptive until you pay attention to the gold borders. It's been a lot of fun!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good camera for the price
I bought this camera because it was an inexpensive way to try out digital photography. I prefer regular cameras because I don't have a great printer yet, but I just wanted to have this type of camera around in case I wanted to take pictures I want to see right away. It takes very nice pictures that print out great on my old printer. It was extremely easy to use and the pictures download very fast. The software was fun to use.

Since I had my fun with it, and it's so easy to use,I am going to give it to my 5 year old son to introduce him to photography. He already took some great pictures and enjoys seeing the pictures pop up on the computer. He can take as many as he wants becuase I don't have to pay for film and processing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with WinXP
The camera is lightweight and comes with the USB/serial port attachments, but unfortunately it's not compatible with WinXP. Going to the Polaroid website is no help. After emailing and searching the site, I found the appropriate drivers for XP.

Taking pictures is a snap, the instructions are very easy to follow, the pictures are so-so, best to take pics during daylight. It's a good entry into digi-cam if you're not familiar with uploading pics to the computer.

2-0 out of 5 stars you seriously get what you pay for
This camera is nothing special. It's cheap, which is good (especially for people like me). But the picture quality really isn't that good, and I'm saying this wholeheartedly.

I bought it for my website. I write stupid and sometimes not so stupid articles about random things, and I thought it was about time I had a functional digital camera to help flesh them out.

I've had this thing for about two weeks now, and I've come to this conclusion: really good/not-so-bad pictures are only available under bright daylight, while any other condition usually produces very average/poor-looking photographs.

Indoors is mostly a no-no, unless you have a lot of light (opening some windows does help). The photographs from normally-lit indoor settings create an ugly grainy effect. Also, even if the camera is completely still and so is your subject, it ocassionally looks like you've been moving the camera while the shutter was open -- making the pictures unnecessarily blurry.

In fact, I haven't had much luck with the quality of the focus -- almost all of my results look a tad blurry.

The software DOES work with Windows XP, you just have to go to Polaroid's official site and read a tutorial on how to get it to a functional state.

If you have Photoshop, the "special effects" that can be used on your photographs are entirely useless. Even if you don't, you probably won't be using them all that often (one finds only so much excitement out of making a picture look incredibly distorted).

Then there's a problem with even well-lit daylight pictures -- at it's normal resolution (640x480), it can sometimes look like a painting. Instead of nice detailed surroundings, you may have little blobs of color everywhere. Reducing the size helps matters, but it's unforunate that I have to do that anyway. The size 640x480 isn't asking for a lot, now is it?

The packaging itself is less than stellar, too. The camera is made out of thin plastic that sometimes feels like it's going to break.

The uploading speed is fast, if you have a USB connection. And it's a great camera for starters, especially younger kids who sometimes could care a less about how great or how not great their pictures look. It IS a digital camera, it DOES make pictures appear onto your computer. So they'll have some enjoyment with it at least.

But I myself am frankly disappointed. What else could I expect from a camera this cheap? I'm looking forward to another digital camera purchase soon. Compared to the more reliable expensive cameras, this is just a piece of junk.

2-0 out of 5 stars bleh
When it comes to electronics you get what u pay for. This camera is extremely basic. It has a flash which is almost too bright for its own good, this along with the camera's sensitivity to extreme light/dark makes its usefullness very enviromentally dependent. Overall picture quality depends on whether or not you can remain EXTREMELY still when ur taking it. All in all maybe usefull for frugal ebayers who need images. Not a good camera for significant moments in life type stuff. Save them pennies cause this camera ain't worth the shiping and handleing. ... Read more

This camera is a great way to break the ice at parties. I thought the picture would be too small, but the pictures came out pretty clear. The only problem I have is, on occasion, the film will not pull out properly, but it is easy to re-set. Love it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Extremely limited in what it can do
It was my first digital camera, and all I was looking for was something to snap pictures to send via email.

For that purpose, it's fine. Sort of. The images are consistently blurry and there isn't a lot of detail thanks to the low-resolution sensor.

I decided on a whim to buy a Kodak DX3700 3.1-megapixel camera, hoping to get higher-resolution images (I knew nothing about digicam technology last year...call it naivety). Okay, first of all the Kodak is definitely more expensive. Secondly, the Kodak's photos are light-years better than the Polaroid's. Period.

I have now shelved the low-resolution Polaroid and have used the Kodak exclusively.

If you're on a budget and don't mind inferior images, then the Polaroid is great. But if you plan on printing your pictures, then get at least a 3.0-megapixel digicam and ignore this Polaroid entirely.

3-0 out of 5 stars My first camera but not the best.
this was my first camera. Since then I have had the Polaroid PDZ2300 and HP Photosmart 435 (Check my reviews). I thought it was a good camera for the amount of pixels. But I was limited to wat I could do. I would defiently recommend at least a 1.3MP though. I found the software confusing too. I could only get 15 pictures though so that was a down. I have come along way since this camera, but this camera was a good beginner.

2-0 out of 5 stars How to get around the "Not compatible with Windows NT" error
If you use the program compatability wizard on the setup program on the CD the software for the camera will install and run fine in XP. I rated the camera low because mine too has the same issues with the lcd (mylar ribbon inside the camera loses contact) and I do agree that all serial port connected cameras are slow to transfer images(after all serial ports were only designed for analog modems anyway). My camera also has a single bad pixel in the center of the CMOS imager that is always black.

1-0 out of 5 stars I say nay.
I have had this camera for three years now and feel I can give an excellent review as far as what to expect over time. When I first purchased it the price was more than twice what it is currently sold for, and at the time I expected it to be of a decent quality. I quickly became disappointed.

After a few days the lcd screen went blue/black and I exchanged the camera for another of the same exact type. I was let down by the rapid problems since I had barely even used it and took great care of it. The second camera, in time, had fading and blurring on the lcd screen as well as other malfunctions such as temporarily blue/blackness. I also found myself refilling the camera with top grade batteries at least once a week.

The transferring of pictures from the camera to a PC is a slow process and can get annoying. I don't know if the kit has been changed, but mine only allows to load one picture at a time. With a full camera, going back and forth between choosing the image source, where you wish them to be stored, waiting for the images to load, and then choosing which picture to download isn't my idea of ease.

The photo quality is absolutely horrible, it is often very grainy or extremely blurred. I find myself spending a lot of time editing my photographs, trying to sharpen the pictures. I most often find even after all the tweaking they are of lower end quality. There is nothing quite like the heart sinking feeling you receive when you snap some images dear to you and upload them to find out they barely are viewable. After loosing out due to the poor quality I know not to depend on this camera for any special event (such as my daughters third birthday, where I learned my lesson).

I also have great difficulty in taking any pictures with this camera in the past 8 months regarding lighting issues. It has become useless for me to even bother using this camera indoors unless the flash is on and the desired shot is in complete and total darkness. Sometimes in that circumstance I can get one faint image.
With low lighting and flash on, I get pure white pictures. With bright indoor light the images come out mostly black with a deep red or orange shadow revealing a small fraction of what was in the shot.

I use this outdoors in bright sunlight, it is now the only way I can get an image from this camera and even those are still blurred and grainy beyond anything I ever saw before.

Even at the price it is now being offered at, I still do not recommend this camera. I wish I had chosen something else. To me this item has been a nuisance rather than a convenience. I never had such a bad experience with Polaroid before and do believe in the quality of their products, just not this one.

I recently ordered the above product and am very dissatisifed with the results. Pictures are fuzzy and color is bad. Pictures are so small, regardless which of the two settings I use.

Also, there is not any other adjustments or options to improve the quality of the pictures.

I'm using the Polaroid Spectra Film two pack instant film which was all that was available at Dean's Camera Shop in Omaha. Is there another type of film I should use that would provide better pictures and where in Omaha can it be purchased. Is there any adjustment besides indoor-outdoor range??

I have an older polaroid camera that takes better pictures than this one. One must be careful about the distance between you and the object being photographed. Outdoor pictures seem to be the most problematic. The picture quality just isn't as good or consistent as it should be.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty damn good!
She works great. She takes greast pics, she's instant, it's fun, looks bloody good..and captures mermories that will still be around for ages.

The thing with this camera is that it compliments itself - where there's a good point for every bad point.

For example, the size of it..it's really quite heavy and large, and when the top is extended, it's a pretty big piece of equipment to be playing with. Yet..the design is really cool..no matter what the size! it's a funky silver, with the cool lens and sleek edging..there's no reason why you wouldn't want to have one!

Often, in bright bright daylight, the photos can become very white ie: too much light for the camera. This sometimes makes the photos a little blurry, and obviously the subject matter non defined. But at the same time..in the right light you have wicked intense colour.

It I find is also quite difficult at times to judge the 2 different settings; 0.6m-1.2m or 1.2m-6m. Often when you think you are in one zone and you set the camera to that...it may still often be a little blurry, as you may be just in or out of the range.

But the benefits here are that of simply having a polaroid camera..instant, instense coloured, extreme fun fotos.

So overall she aint bad..and I'd definently reccomend her to anyone - simply for the fun that I have found the polaroid to be..you can relive an excellent moment 2 minutes later.

3-0 out of 5 stars I bought it in June and it stopped working on Sept 1??
It WAS a good camera, took very nice pictures and it seemed to depend on each packet of film for the colors??? I used it a lot and all of a sudden... just barely into 3 months of ownership,it broke.The film dragged after each picture and then it died....still drags but nothing comes out and I tried several packets of film....So much for a good camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for indoor pictures
While a great camera overall, it does have a few problems,

As always, the camera was extremely easy to use, and the close up lens work great. The wide angle lens is a DEFINITE PLUS! In comparing an old Polaroid Captiva and a friends JoyCam, I was able to get an additional 20-30% more image using the 1200FF.

While the pop up design is extremly easy to manipulate, the overall size was quite surprising. This is definitely not a camera that you can slide into your camera bag or purse as an after thought. The surprisingly large size is about the same as 3 DVD cases stacked on top of each other.

SouthPaw's, nothing new here, you are still out of luck with this one. Pretty much everything on this camera is designed for right handed use, from the pop-up mechanism, the shutter release, and even the film cover release.

While it is advertised for both indoor and Outdoor photos, Outdoor photos, have a tendency to be a bit washedout, especially in low contrast situations (brightly lit objects, wide open spaces, light colored buildings, etc). It would have been nice if Polaroid would have added a contrast adjustment switch, like they did on the Captiva. In contrast, the 1200FF fill-in flash works great for indoor photos.

As with all Polaroids keep a watch over the film, extreme temperatures will greatly effect the image quality (don't leave it baking in your car), and with the pitures costing almost a buck a pop, it can turn out to be a costly mistake.

While definitely not a replacement for a standard 35mm, its overall picture quality, wide angle lens and obvious instant gratification factor, make this a great tag along camera for any family trip, or party. ... Read more

Polaroid's i-zone pocket cameras produce tiny, high-quality Polaroidpictures about the size of a frame of 35mm film (or your average postage stamp).The i-zones use either sticky or nonsticky instant film, so you can put yourpictures in a frame or stick them onto your notebook or CD player. While thecameras all have the same funky oblong plastic design, they are available in avariety of interesting color schemes. The silver edition is a solid silvercolor, while phat blue and fireball red are neonlike translucent monotones, andthe jade version is two-tone with an aqua green front and bluish back. Thecamera turns itself off automatically after each shot to conserve batterypower.

Each i-zone set comes with a camera and two AA alkaline batteries. Film is sold separately. Loading the camera is aseasy as dropping the film cartridge into the back of the camera and closing itback up. The trickiest part is remembering to pull the film tab out in one fluidmotion, without stopping--exactly like most other Polaroids. When you expose ashot and pull out the film, you get something that looks like a Band-Aid, withan image in the middle and extra paper on both ends. Just clip the extra paperoff with a pair of scissors and you have your final product. Be careful not tocut into the actual photo as you don't want to give the caustic paste inside achance to seep out and get on your fingers.

There are three exposure settings on the i-zone--indoors (with flash),outdoor/sunny, and outdoor/cloudy. Overall, the camera is probably best forsubjects within 2 to 8 feet, although we took pictures of downtown buildingsthat turned out pretty well. The outdoor/sunny setting requires bright sundirectly on the subject for a good exposure. Even if it isn't cloudy, try usingthe outdoor/cloudy setting if the subject is in shadow or if it is early or latein the day when the sunlight isn't at full strength. The flash seems to workbest from about 4 to 5 feet away.

The best part is figuring out what to do with the miniphotos once you've createdthem. The options seem to be limitless, from decorating cell phones to puttingthem in miniframes to creating photo albums. These cameras are affordable,simple to use, and a lot of fun. --Walt Opie ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars cant judge this camera by its packaging
I went to my local kmart or walmart or one of those mart stores :). My friend puchased this fine looking camera in silver (not the purple I wanted her to get) and were excited to find that it came with six pics free,they werent the best of quality but they are the kind of pictures you take of friends at random moments and look back on years later and smile. We'll we took six random pictures of each other and we went back to get some more film. she didnt have that much money and we were sad to see the huge prices for a small amount of film but we bought some anyway ,using up her remaining dollars.For some reason she was still very satisfied with her camera even though it had ripped her off to an extent.It does have some good sides: it comes in some great colors, Taking the pictures is very fun,it is small and has a wrist cord,and you can take double exposures. To take a double exposure you take a picture and dont tke the film out then take a picture of sometihng else.I enjoyed taking a picture of a person in one facial expresion the take a picture in the same position with a differnt expression.Quite fun

5-0 out of 5 stars Kewl!
Oh, man this camera is fun! Its great to buy loads of film (yes I know, 'tis very expensive) but you get tons of cool pictures to stick wherever, and just take the camera 2 school and snap pictures, its really fun. A couple very important things to know before ya use it: Its not a pocket camera, dont try to fit it in there- it wont work! Be careful what you haul it around in, the button could go off if ya bang it around. Always follow the instructions of the button where you flip the turny thing a ma jig to the atmosphere your taking the picture in example:(if your taking a pic indoors flip it to the indoors symbol, ect) always flip the thing to OFF when your done or it wastes a lotta batteries, believe me, I know! Dont take a picture from 10 feet away and expect it to turn out b cuz all youll get is a picture of a dark dark room... and never open up the bottom where you insert film if there is already film inside because that accidentally happened and it wasted quite a lotta pics cuz it wasnt shut securely. If ya pay attention to all that the youll be in the zone in no time!Oh---One more thing! This is sooooooo cool! take a picture of ur friend leaning one way, keep the camera still and dont move it after u have taken the pic, leave the picture in the camera then have ur friend lean the other way and take a picture on the same photo...do this quickly..then you can pull it on out and see your twin or your ghost, whichever u prefer, It took me a while to get it right, but Ive got a picture where it looks so real! Its really cool! Now what other camera can do that??!

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant Flashcards
I got this camera to make picture flash-cards for my autistic spectrum daughter. The pictures are small enough to easily fit a number on each page of her card book but clear enough that she has no problem identifying them. I highly recommend the i-zone, and the sticky back pictures are very convenient.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the perfect instant camera.
I highly recommend this i-Zone camera to anyone who wants to take focus free, good quality instant pictures. What you see in the viewfinder is exactly what you get (unlike other "toy" cameras where you have to guess what how your final photo will turn out). The photos come out crisp, clear and colorful.

This is a great camera to throw in your backpack and have handy at a moment's notice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little camera
Polaroid's i-zone site tells me that this camera is aimed at people at least fifteen years younger than me. Okay. Whatever.

I've been a fan of it since it was invented, and I still am, even though I own digital cameras five hundred times more expensive. Casual photos are all about what you can do with them. The i-zone doesn't just produce pictures, it produces toys. Give them to people. Stick them on things. Take one of these to the pub and you'll get people queuing up to have their picture taken. Send them on postcards - many times cheaper and more convenient than a pocket-sized printer and glue.

Basically this camera is perfect for grown-ups with lives, as well as teenagers. And it's not exactly expensive either. If you like taking spontaneous photos, this is the device for you. No other camera has brought me as much enjoyment. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great, but flawed
I have the silver version of this camera. (It uses the same 600 film so I assume they are the similiar (if not the same), just different colors). I think Polaroid instant cameras are great, but there are a few niggling problems. 1) Photos often lack sharpness and can look slightly out of focus, 2) For some reason an occasional photo will come out as if it has already been half-exposed, and 3) There is no counter to tell you how many pictures you have left! This is the most annoying aspect b/c you only get 10 photos per pack (and they're kind of spendy). There is little more frustrating than to press the button and have nothing happen. I believe there is a counter on the Joycam, but I prefer the traditional Polaroid size and shape. Otherwise, I still think this is a quality, fun camera and there is nothing better than not having to drop off your film for development.

4-0 out of 5 stars Catching the Moment
This Polaroid One Step Express Instant Camera is not the latest model, but it is good & fun enough for people who want to "catch the moment"-- take and get pic in hands within 3 min.

Digital cameras & images are great. You can almost take as many as pictures you want and would not be afraid of wasting your films. As the instant film is more expensive, you may not take pic that "freely" but what's on the pic will be what you treasure and you would like to keep. The size, shape, & texture of the instant film can give you something different & a little "nostagia" flavor.

There was black & white film for this model, unfortunately, they are no longer manufactured. So, only color films are available for its use. That's a little disappointing, but I think this camera is still fun to have. :) ... Read more
