    Win win

    I bought my daughter a polaroid for her birthday and she could not stop using the camera. I bought extra film. It was a win win! The film is more expensive than amazon though.

    Nice photos!

    Love how old Polaroid photos look. However, do not take a Polaroid of a relaxed and half-asleep puppy with the flash. Think he is still traumatized to this day.

  • Review by Awesomeness, 10 out of 10
    And when her little brother used it the camera ha!

    This little camera is darling and works really well with good Clare pictures and the only thing I would say is to be careful about being in bright sunlight up close because it looks a little over exposed in bright sun, And when her little brother used it the camera handle was hanging in front of the lens so there was a hand all in the picture which has nothing to do with the camera performance just an FYI

    Polaroid or nothing. The 600 double film pack gives you two new packs of film in a single box, individually wrapped so they stay fresh until you're ready to shoot. That's 16 instant photos in color altogether, and for a lower price than two single packs. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us.

    I love the quality of polaroid film this film is best used with newer polaroids not vintage cameras as the packaging says. It's a good deal 5 packs each containing 8 sheets of film. as opposed to buying it individually. When using polaroid instant film it's usually a hit or miss in the outcomes of the photos so always keep that in mind. Pictures attached look better in person you just have to go for it and hope for the best.

    Great old-fashioned fun, spotty quality

    This is a fantastic product. It goes with the new Polaroid throwback camera, but the quality is spotty and not always good. I have made sure to keep the fresh prints unexposed and I still got poor quality spots and over-exposures on the film. Easy to use and fun, but you don’t get many blanks for what you pay. This prompted me to purchase a different brand of instant camera with a better film price. I would recommend if you’re going for that classic look! Take outside in daylight or very well lit indoor room.

    Great film, if you know what to expect

    Love the vintage look of this film. Not as good as the Polaroid of old. The formula is not the same due to chemicals that can no longer be used. That said, this company should have our support for making this film and new cameras available.

    Nostalgia at its best

    A little flash back in time, the Polaroid 600 film works just like you remember. Easy to understand installation, and who doesn’t love the instant gratification of holding your physical picture right after you take it. Exposure takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, and it is recommended that you keep the picture in a dark place as it is developing (back pocket or purse works great).

    Works with my “vintage” Polaroid but

    The film cracks even with softest touch. No problem with Best Buy just a problem with the design. It works in my older green Polaroid camera but it cracks so easily! I really hope Polaroid fixes the formula or a way to prevent the film from cracking since it is expensive for film. Do not wave the film!! I do like the lil tips that come on the package though and it is easy to use.

    Great quality and almost always in good condition so I don’t have any unwanted flares in my photos. Unfortunately, my Free 8x8 Shutterfly code didn’t work so I was bummed about that (hence the 4 stars); but the film itself is a good find as Polaroid 600 film is not as popular to come by.

    Great film, if you know what to expect

    Love the vintage look of this film. Not as good as the Polaroid of old. The formula is not the same due to chemicals that can no longer be used. That said, this company should have our support for making this film and new cameras available.

    The film is pretty good, pictures come out clear and with nice color. The formula has come a long way from the Impossible Project film.

    Polaroid - I-type Color Film: The Mandalorian Edition
    Description

    Color Film for i-Type - The Mandalorian Edition

    5 Features
  • Color Film i-type film featuring The Mandalorian edition: The Mandalorian™ Edition is for Star Wars fans from every generation. A pack of 8 color instant photographs for Polaroid i-Type cameras that bring the icons and iconic characters from the Disney+ series to your life!
  • Store chilled, shoot warm: Keep it stored cold in the fridge, but never freeze it. Should let it adjust to room temperature before you use it. That’s around 55–82°F (13–28°C). When it’s cold out, keep your photos warm in a pocket close to your body while they develop.
  • Shoot with the light: The more light in your shot, the better your photo will turn out. Instant film loves light, especially natural light. Use the flash for all your indoor photos. For best results we also recommend using the flash for outdoor shots, unless it’s a bright sunny day.
  • Develop in the dark: All photos appear blank at first. They’re most sensitive during this time, so don’t bend or shake them. Shield them from the light, and place them face down as they develop. Keep B&W photos shielded from light for about 1 minute, and color film for about 6 minutes.
  • Care for your camera: Your camera has a set of rollers inside the fi lm door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it’s made, so it’s important to make sure that they stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth.

    Cute & Perfect!

    This idea of iconic border film for the Polaroid is fantastic! There are varied designs inside from The Mandolorian, not just Baby Yoda - but I did not feel "cheapest out" of the amount of baby yoda bordered film that was provided. The quality is just like the other weights of cartridge film - but even the cartridges for this have Mandolorian logos on them! Totally collectible and true to advertisement. Great for anyone who has an addiction to Star Wars or Snap filter borders!

    A vintage dream but....

    The products purchased worked as expected. It was a big hit at the event I purchased it for. The only thing I would change would be adding more film to this bundle. It is also important to note the products in this bundle are DELICATE, are FRAGILE however they box was dinged up and not packaged very well. Also be mindful of the settings in which you use this. Have enough film for test shots to find the right lighting etc.

    It’s easy to setup and photo quality is also good. For beginners like my daughter the auto one is good, but I would rather prefer the previous version where you have control on few light options. As only got 10 snaps all are used and had to get stock up the 2 pack one, one of the disadvantages of this cameras as well, you keep investigating.

    I bought 3 packs that had ALREADY EXPIRED. They were manufactured on 8/18 and Polaroids should be used within a year of that date. I paid $45.75 for expired film!

    A Throwback That's Still So Satisfying

    I think many people would say "Why would I buy a polaroid camera when I can use my phone?" and I think that's the wrong question to ask. The question to ask is "What should a camera do?" And that is to capture memories. The Polaroid Now does a fantastic job of bringing back the uniqueness of it's style of camera, and its a lot of fun!

    PROS:

    - The Camera itself is really a nice retro design. The design is sleek and the camera is very light, the only reason the camera is long is to accommodate for the film/pictures you put inside.

    - Set up for this device is as simple as can be. All you do is plug the camera into charge (if needed, mine has plenty of charge out of the box) and put in the film/picture paper inside of the camera. Boom you are ready to go!

    - The controls on it are really easy to use given there is a power, flash, timer, and capture button. That's it! The flash defaults to being on every single time you take a photo unless you turn it off and there is a nice indicator to let you know how many photos you have left.

    - I have to say, using the Polaroid Now has been a lot of fun! It's not complicated to use because you point, capture, and the picture prints instantly. Once the picture dries the quality was very good!

    - Overall, this camera is meant for an exact purpose. It points, takes pictures, and prints them off instantly. It's meant to be a simple device to use and bring you joy in having those memories printed right away. I personally think it's a well made product that does exactly what it's meant to do really well.

    CONS:

    - Probably the biggest downside is going to be the amount of pictures it can hold and the cost of buying more. The Polaroid Now holds 8 pictures at a time and the 8 packs aren't as cheap as you would like them to be.

    - The drying time of the photos take some time and is quicker if you put them in a dark place like your pocket. Not a huge deal to me but doesn't give you instant satisfaction in seeing the photo.

    - I don't love the placement of the capture button. It is on the front of the camera and I think placing it on top would have been easier to use for taking regular pictures or selfies.

    - The Polaroid Now charges via Micro USB and I think it would have benefitted using USB C given most tech is pushing that way.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - The Polaroid Now is a throwback to a different time in picture taking but it still applies very much to this day! The pictures print with a modern nostalgia to them and you will have a lot of fun using this and having the pictures right away!

  • Review by Namdnas, 8 out of 10
    Great camera, but film is costly / Pics too blurry

    My wife loves taking vintage-style Polaroid pictures, so, I figured this Polaroid Now camera would be perfect. It's a modern version of the "old" ones, but with zoom options and a USB charger.

    Unboxing the camera is a pretty standard affair. Nothing special here. I did want to say that there was only a Quick Start guide included with the camera. No manual that we could find. The included camera strap was a pain to put on. So much so, that I went online and downloaded a copy of the manual to see if we were doing it right. The strap listed in the manual was for a different type of strap - not the one included. Just disappointed that there was no regular manual included to outline how to use the features of this camera, such as the zoom and such.

    During the first two days of use, we took 11 total pictures. Of those, 4 came out blurry. Of these 4, 2 were zoomed in a bit, the other 2 were not. This is why I needed to reference the manual for something as simple as the zoom feature. The other 7 pictures that came out normal were good. They kept the vintage "old-school" style look to them and captured the correct lighting around and behind the subject.

    However, my biggest issue with this camera is the cost of the i-type film that it uses. I looked at Best Buys site and for a pack of 40 total pictures, it's around $65. That's pretty expensive and a significant investment in something that we would just use for "fun" and nostalgia. It does use another type of film as well, but this was not tested and the manual says the default/best use film for this camera is the i-type, so that is what we will stick with.

    Overall, I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. The camera itself is great and well build. But with a lack of an included manual and having to look it up online, just to figure out some simple features such as the zoom and certain questions, such as "did I load this film right?" and "do I remove the tab from the film cartridge?" that were just a mystery when trying to figure it out on your own. We even had to watch a few YouTube videos. This, in addition to the cost of the film itself and the amount of blurry pictures we got with only 11 total pictures taken, was a huge concern to me. So much so that I almost gave this 3 stars. But I figure the more we use the camera, the better we will get at using it. Based on this, I wouldn't personally recommend it to a friend.

    Retro Feel - Fun Camera

    Blast from the past! The Polaroid Now Instant Film Camera is a throwback to a simpler time – a less digital one. I have to admit that I never had the pleasure of using an original Polaroid camera, but I always wanted to. I’m an 80’s baby, so I grew up through the 90’s and watched as friends and family toted one of those cameras around, snapping pictures and seeing the outcome minutes later. Back then you had to wait until all the shots were used up on the film roll before you took it in to get developed. Weeks would go by before you found out your thumb was over the lens. Polaroids were your first chance to see those captured images in almost real time. Now with cameras in phones, mirrorless, and DLSR’s everywhere you can snap pictures at every opportunity. You can see your latest shot instantly, and delete it if you don’t like it. Pictures just don’t mean as much when they can be cast off so easily. With the Polaroid Now you get that permanence and tangibility of the image back, so I was really looking forward to using it.

    Again, I have no prior usage of a Polaroid camera, so this is all new to me.

    Fresh out of the box the Polaroid Now comes with a simple detachable strap, a micro-USB charge cable, some literature, and the camera itself. There’s not much else, so it’s pretty straightforward. The little “getting started” literature is helpful for getting familiar with the camera. Shows you what all the buttons do, how to load the film, etc. There’s only 5 buttons on the camera. Power, flash, shutter, timer/dual exposure, and the button to reload the film tray. The literature doesn’t explain dual exposure, so I had to look it up on the website. You have to click the timer button twice, quickly, to engage the dual exposure. Double-click it again to turn it off. The charging port is on the side and has a colored LED to indicate the battery life. 16 shots in, most with flash, and it still shows a good charge is left. The Polaroid Now is a pretty simple camera with basic abilities and features. If more features are needed the OneStep+ has an expanded feature set over the Now (tripod mount, exposure and focal point adjustments, Bluetooth).

    From loading the film to shooting is a relatively short time – 15-20 sec. Per the recommendations I have been storing my film in the fridge to help it keep longer. So far I’ve shot 2 packs of pictures – 8 color and 8 B&W. I have the same amount of film still available, and I am looking forward to shooting it. I have noticed that I prefer shooting in B&W, and I’ll explain why.

    I didn’t care for the color shots as much as I would like. They have been washed out or dark, and getting the light right has been pretty difficult. I shot in my kitchen with all the lights on, no flash, and the picture was very dark. With the flash on it looked fine, but I was in a well-lit room, so it didn’t feel like it should have been necessary. Shooting outside, in full sun, was the only way I was able to avoid using the flash. Unfortunately those pics came out a little washed out. I thought maybe it was getting hit with too much light, so I moved to shoot from the shade. Objects in the shade with me came out looking good, and I liked the exposure. I took pics of my kids out in the sun, while I was in the shade, and I got a lot of lens flare and a little overexposure. So overall, shooting in color, is a little problematic.

    Switching gears to shooting in B&W. Completely different story in my opinion. I really enjoyed shooting B&W. The exposures in similar situations to the color came out looking a lot better. My favorite pictures of my kids and SO came on the B&W. Contrast and clarity were both better than expected. I honestly think going forward I will probably shoot in B&W 75% of the time. Part of it is the novelty of the B&W polaroid shots like the old days, but also I really enjoy the quality and look of it. I’m not big on digital B&W, but for some reason I really like it in this format.

    The only issue I have found with the camera is a weird little discolored section that comes out on every picture. Its right down at the bottom and has a wavy border. The picture still continues, but below the border the colors are off. It shows up on both color and B&W, so I know it’s not the film. I don’t know if this is a normal phenomenon or maybe my sensor or whatever is a little wonky, or maybe it’s from shaking the picture to get it to develop faster. It doesn’t detract from the pictures, but that is something that I have noticed. Again, this is the only “issue” I have had with the camera. The rest may just be limitations of the sensor or ability.

    More of a Novelty Item, Unfortunately

    I really wanted to love the Polaroid Now. On paper, it seems like a good addition to the Polaroid family with a good amount of features that includes autofocus. Sadly these features do not translate into a very functional product that I want to use often.

    Inside the box, you will find the camera itself, a neck strap, micro USB charging cable, and a big, well organized quick start guide. Film is NOT included. Build quality on the Polaroid Now is fine. The entire body of the camera is made of plastic. While it looks minimalistic and feels nice to the touch, I worry about scratching the plastic when I’m out shooting photos. There is no carrying case or soft fabric bag included and there is no tripod mount. If you try and take a selfie outdoors, you’ll have to set the camera down on a bench, pavement, rocks, etc. which could easily scratch the base. Instead of a tripod mount, you find a quote on the bottom of the camera that reads, “An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail” - Edwin Land. Each button on the camera corresponds to a self-explanatory function, except for one. The self-timer button doubles as the activation button for double exposure. Double exposure activation is not explained well at all in the quick start guide and it took me a few frustrating minutes to figure out that you need to push the self-timer button twice to activate this feature. I think a dedicated double exposure button would have been nice.

    Using the Polaroid Now is a lot of fun, just like any Polaroid. It’s really satisfying to take a photo and immediately have the shot print out the front. Sadly, it isn’t very practical, nor does it produce very high quality photographs. Photographs take 10-15 minutes in the dark to develop. No shaking necessary. Even when following the recommended shooting instructions from Polaroid, my outdoor photographs with and without flash were completely washed out. My indoor photos with and without flash were so dark. While I understand this is the “look” of Polaroid, these photos are exceptionally bad. At roughly $2 a shot, this makes me think quite a bit before I take a photo. When you hit the shutter button, you feel blind because you have no idea what you’re going to get after that 10-15 minute development time. This detracts significantly from what is supposed to be an enjoyable experience and can be a real downer when you missed a memorable moment. One positive is that the autofocus on the camera has lessened the amount of out-of-focus throw-away shots.

    I will likely take this camera with me as an adjunct device on day trips to the lake or while hiking because there’s nothing quite like pinning a Polaroid shot to a bulletin board. For all other travel, this camera is too large and not worth the hassle of packing. I’ll stick to using my phone.

    The whole thing is so simple that it’s kind of difficult to write a very detailed review but out of the box, there’s no real frills here. The packaging is very standard, instructions are a light read and setup doesn’t take long. Out of the box you’ll obviously have the camera (mine was charged), a mini usb charger, and then a carrying strap for the camera.

    The carrying strap attaches easily, but I never really bother with those type of things, even though I’m contemplating using one in the future because the camera is a smooth plastic material, a tad heavier than you’d expect, and awkward to hold.

    As for setup, and use, it couldn’t be easier. You load in the Polaroid film (sold separately), hit the power button, decide if you need flash or not, point the camera, and shoot! There’s an indicator next to the power button to let you know how many film cartridges are still inside and the flash next to that. The front of the camera also has a timer on it, which would be useful if you want to try and get in the picture too, or take a selfie but that’s likely not a feature I’ll use much more past initial testing. The historical downside with polaroids is that each picture costs about $2 in film, much more than its competition, so the idea of hoping to time a selfie right or use the timer to hope I get in the family photo on time isn’t a high priority.

    Just as it’s always been, you wait about five minutes after the film pops out of the camera, and just like that, you’ve got your physical copy ready to roll.

    If I was to be super picky about one thing it’s that, in the world of smart phones and incredible cameras in our pocket at all times, the quality of the pictures on here need to be higher. The attached picture was something I shot with the subjects 20ish feet away and they come out lacking much definition or detail.

    That said though, these are still incredibly fun, very nostalgic, and always come out looking great with natural lighting so spring-fall usage is ideal. There’s no better time to buy than right now!

    Fun Camera, Expensive Film

    I like the Polaroid Now and if you’re looking for that type of camera and can work within its constraints you can get some really striking and memorable photos. It’s certainly not for everybody and the high cost of the film packs means you have to be very selective about the photos you take, but that extra consideration can also go towards capturing moments that might get deleted out of hand on a digital camera or phone.

    I would say that before getting out and using this camera, it helps to research and understand the type of shots it’s good at taking and the ones it’s bad at. For example, though it may be something that’s well understood by those familiar with Polaroid cameras, they are at their best when there’s a lot of light. It’s why the flash defaults to always being on instead of off. The lens system in the camera provides 2 focus zones, but will not focus on anything closer than 1.8ft. Not initially knowing that left me with a lot of blurry pictures in the first pack of film I went through.

    After my initial run of photos (and going out to buy more film packs) I feel a lot better about taking pictures with the Polaroid Now. The photos have that iconic vintage look and feel to them in something that’s real, tangible, and instant. It’s certainly something you could mostly replicate on your phone, but the overwhelming amount of choices you have with various apps and filters can lead to results feel a little manufactured. Sometimes the simple option is better.

    My only real problem with this camera is the cost of the film packs. Depending on the quantity you buy the cost of each picture is between $1.63-$2.00. The best bang for your buck is getting the 5-pack (40 photos total) for $65. That cost might not feel so outrageous to some, but in the days where you can store near limitless amounts of photos on your phone and print them for many times less it’s a little harder to stomach. You’re paying for a very particular experience with the Polaroid Now, but if you know that’s what you want going in I think you’ll be happy.

    Bringing back to the 80s!

    The Polaroid instant film camera is a great way to step back in time with something most of us may of grew up with. The real question becomes rather or not this an exact replica of a former camera or are there some minor upgrades.

    First off out the box your going to receive to receive the main camera, micro usb charging cable, neck strap and a box of film. Fully charging before the first use is always recommend and on a depleted cell it took about a hour to fully charge. A fully charged battery will last long enough to go through 15 film packs. At first glance it doesn't appear too much has changed. On the backside of the camera you have your tiny view finder, power button, flash button, and LCD screen which displays how many photos you have left. On the front of the camera you will find the shutter button along with a nice little timer button which will allow you to jump into the shots with your friends or loved ones.

    So lets dive in to how well it works and what you can expect. Exposure is what you would expect to receive from a Polaroid. Under low light conditions even with the flash on picture quality is still low. Flash off with natural light works the best. I have uploaded a couple of photos that show what natural lighting photos look like with the flash off. There not too bad but they do look and feel pretty similar to the Polaroid photos i remember taking as a kid. But hey im not even upset because you don't a Polaroid camera for studio quality photos. You buy a Polaroid to be able to shoot film on the fly and have fun with it. The next thing i wanna talk about is develop time. The old photos i grew up with i remember we used to always shake the photos and i never really knew why. Also i remember them developing a lot faster (or at least i think i remember). These new photos advise against you shaking them and also advise that you place them face down or in a dark place during the developing process. Couple things to say in this regard. One, if you do shake the photo it seems to throw the chemicals around and the photos can come out with streaks. Second, even though they will still develop in any condition i did notice a big difference in quality of the photos of them developing in natural light versus being put a dark space and allowing them to develop. Also on average depending on how hot the camera is getting and how rapid your shooting photos the developing process can take anywhere from 5 to 10 mins which in my opinion seems a little longer then i remember, however i could be wrong as its been a very long time since i've used a Polaroid camera. The camera has a nice little led light next to the charging port which lets you know when your low on charge. Green is charged, yellow is getting low and red means your done. Pretty standard light indicator.

    Overall guys this camera is pretty cut and dry. It does what we all remember Polaroids doing which is shooting quick, fast, low quality photos that you can have fun with around your friends and family. While there are some small upgrades like a chargeable battery cell and a heads up display for your photo count, in my opinion this feels and shoots just like the old Polaroid cameras did when i was young. For me this isn't that big of a deal and i like it because when it comes to replicas i prefer them to work and even act just like its former glory. Though there isn't that much of a big difference in picture quality versus its predecessor its still just as fun as ever to use. And at this price point that the unit comes in at, you really can't go wrong picking one up. So should you buy one? If your looking for studio quality shots then obviously no, you came to the wrong area. However if your looking for something to take on camping trips, BBQ or local family outings where you can shoot, have fun and hand out some photos then ya pick this unit up as you truly can't go wrong with a old school Polaroid. I love this unit as it looks and feels just like something i grew up with.

    Polaroid Go Film-Double Pack
    Description

    The world at your feet – and in your pocket, and possibly your backpack. Throw a Polaroid Go Color Film Double in and take creativity with you, wherever you and your camera roam. Each pack includes 16 color instant photos framed in glossy white and ready to take on the world. For use exclusively with the Polaroid Go.

    4 Features
  • Store chilled: Temperature affects how the film works. Keep it stored cold in the fridge, but never freeze it.
  • Shoot with the light: The more light in your shot, the better your photo will turn out. Instant film loves light, especially natural light. Use the flash for all your indoor photos. For best results we also recommend using the flash for outdoor shots, unless it’s a bright sunny day.
  • Develop in the dark: All photos appear dark at first. They're most sensitive during this time, so don't bend or shake them. Shield them from the light, and place them face down as they develop. KeepB&W photos shielded from the light for about 1 minute, and for color film for about 6 minutes.
  • Care for your Camera: Your camera has a set of rollers inside the film door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it's made, so it's important to make sure that they stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth.

    Nostalgic fun in a small, lightweight package

    Bottom Line: The Polaroid Go Camera is fun, easy to use, and delivers decent prints.

    Pros: fun and lightweight design, easy to use, decent image/print quality

    Cons: print handling is a bit more cumbersome than other instant cameras, lengthy print development time, relatively high cost per print

    Review: The Polaroid Go maintains the nostalgic Polaroid look in a simplified and streamlined design. The camera is lightweight and does fit in the pocket of my shorts, although it won’t fit in my wife’s. Fortunately, it’s not too cumbersome to carry with the included wrist strap.

    The camera itself is easy to use. Loading the film is as simple as popping open the cartridge door and lining up the arrows. There are three buttons: power, flash, and shutter. A small display shows the number of prints left (note that the camera must be on to show this) as well as whether the flash is on.

    Taking a photo is as easy as pointing the camera and clicking the shutter button. Selfies are also easy to take by simply turning the camera around and making sure you can see yourself in the mirror; my wife and I had no problem ensuring we were both in the frame. Overall, the camera performs well in bright and low light (which can be seen by the photos of the flowers taken in full sun and the selfie taken indoors). Like the Polaroid prints of my childhood, images do lose some contrast particularly in the brighter parts of the image (e.g., the flower versus the leaves; my wife’s face versus mine).

    Print handling and development are a tad bit on the cumbersome side. The instructions state that the image should not be exposed to light during development. When the print ejects, the image is covered by a black plastic film where it should remain for five seconds. When you remove the print, the film recoils back into the machine, so it’s not as simple as simply pulling out the print when it ejects. Next, the instructions say to lay the image face down on the table, where it takes 10-15 minutes for full development.

    Last, the “Everything Box” comes with two print cartridges with each containing 8 prints. Refills are also sold as 16 packs (once again two cartridges of 8 prints), which, at current retail, seems to put the cost per print over $1.

    Compact & light, prints just ok

    It’s been a long time since I’ve used a Polaroid analog instant camera, but it’s every bit as fun as I’d remembered. The Polaroid Go is currently the smallest version of the classic Polaroid instant camera, and while not tiny, is small enough to carry in a bag or oversized pockets. It’s roughly the size of my mirrorless digital camera. The body is made from a durable yet light plastic and contains a rechargeable battery that powers the camera and the flash. Rather than a typical camera neckstrap, the camera is bundled with a wrist strap that you attach to a corner on the base. The Everything Box also comes with two film cartridges containing 8 film sheets each and a set of fun rainbow colored stickers to decorate your prints and camera. On a full charge, the battery should last for about 15 cartridges before needing to be recharged via the included microUSB cable.

    Loading the film is super easy. Just open one of the aluminum foil sealed pouches containing a cartridge, slide the door latch mechanism on the bottom of the camera, and insert the cartridge wide end first with the arrows on the cart and camera lined up. When a new cartridge is inserted, the dark slide on the top protecting the film from light exposure ejects automatically. You’ll also receive an 8-pack of small double-sided round stickers with each cartridge to adhere or display your prints on other surfaces.

    When you turn the camera on, it automatically charges up the flash and displays the number of shots remaining in the cartridge on a small LED display next to the power button. A small dot next to the counter indicates when the flash is enabled and pressing the white flash key on top toggles it on or off for your next shot. Note that the flash will automatically re-enable after each photo is taken.

    Despite having only three buttons, I was surprised to learn that the camera supported double-exposure and self-timer modes, though the quick start guide was lacking on how to enable these features. To enable the self timer, just press and hold the flash key for two seconds until an orange light appears next to the flash on the front of the camera. Then after pressing the red shutter button, you’ll have 9 seconds to position yourself in front of the camera. Keep in mind there is no threaded mounting point on the camera, so it cannot be attached to a tripod, and you’ll need to find a flat stable surface to set your camera when not using handheld. For double-exposure mode, long press the flash button until a ‘1’ flashes on the counter display, indicating it’s ready for the first exposure. After taking the first photo, a ‘2’ will flash on the display when the camera is ready for the second exposure. You can even turn the camera off if you’re not immediately ready to take the second exposure; the camera will pick up where it left off when you turn it on again. This mode allows you to creatively merge two images together for surprising and interesting prints.

    The camera has a built-in selfie mirror on the opposite side of the viewfinder to help you frame up your shots when taking them in front of the camera. It’s okay and usable, but in very bright conditions may be hard to see. The built-in flash is eye-wateringly bright when it goes off but its reach is limited, so you’ll need to be somewhat close to your subject and/or the background if you wish to illuminate both.

    For beginners, it may take a bit of trial and error and practice to produce decent looking prints. First and foremost, the images don’t actually appear instantly, and you should place them face down or in a dark place, like a pocket, for 15-30 minutes to allow the film to develop fully. If allowed to develop face-up in the presence of light your image may become overexposed and blurry. The second thing is that the focal range of the camera is 1.5 feet and greater, so you’ll want your subject to be at least that distance from the camera if you want it to be clearly in focus. That means no macro or close-up shots. If you’re planning on scrapbooking or putting these photos in an album, the recommendation is to not compress or seal them in plastic for at least 30 days to allow the chemical processes in the film to halt and dry out.

    The photos are approximately 1-3/4 inch square and with the frame, the print dimensions are about 2-1/8W x 2-5/8H, so they’re fairly small, but that’s not a surprise since the camera itself is compact. The print quality was slightly disappointing though, and I felt that the color saturation was not very vibrant, the focus a bit soft, and the contrast too low. A friend of mine remarked that the photos looked like they had a “vintage filter” on them due to their washed out appearance, which may or may not be a desirable quality depending on what you’re going for. While they’re a fun size, the price per print is on the high end for what you end up with.

    Overall, I do find taking photos with the Polaroid Go fun. Once you’re familiar with how the film behaves and what sorts of print you’ll be able to produce with it, playing around with lighting and shooting conditions can help you create artful and stylized prints. It may not be the best camera for ultra crisp fashion portraits, but if you’re looking to give the world of instant film cameras a try, the Polaroid Go offers you that opportunity in a cute palm-sized camera.

    Nostalgia and conversation starter, but ...

    Let me start by saying I'm an older photo enthusiast and have enjoyed the Polaroids of yesterday (80's/90's era) and looked forward to trying this new Polaroid Go. And while it's cute retro design and small 2 inch photos should impress and will make those who see you using, share fond memories of days gone by. That's where the nostalgic similarities ends for me.

    I wanted and tried to love this little camera. I even contacted the Polaroid technology person to get the best tips for making this camera be all it can be. Unfortunately, the film or the camera (possibly a bit of error on my part), only yields oddly colored or washed out images outside and dimly lit indoor pictures. One picture didn't even get full development.

    I think some will get better results because of their talent. And others will love the "Artsy" look these photos produce. Even the included sticker pack might be fun to get younger photogs in to the photography hobby. Just know, based on the camera I used for this review. It requires a little skill, steady hand for 2-3 seconds (because the picture is not "taken" till the film ejects). And while it can do selfies with the reflective coating. Pictures closer than a foot will not likely focus.

    To sum up my experience with the camera:

    + Fun size and nostalgia others will want to share with you.

    + Can do selfies, timer and double exposure.

    - Film is not cheap and photos that do develop are styled with odd hues and/or washed out colors. And 2 inch photos are very small.

    - indoor photos barely worked and not worth risking limited photos.

    - Pictures need 5 seconds of cover then up to 15 minutes in the dark to reach optimal development.

    I think at a reduced price this could be fun just for the laugh of it all. The camera I used just required more patience to use to it's best abilities. Far different from current cameras and pictures of a digital world that many of us have got accustomed to.

    Fun little camera for nostalgia and goofing off

    Picked this up for my daughter for her birthday. Its very compact, which is nice since she's small.

    very easy to use and set up. I had to convince her to take her time with it because there's only 8 pictures per pack. It'd be nice if it held more but i understand space constraints with such a small camera. Not a problem though as refills are plentiful and can be picked up easily at multiple places. Its about $20 for a 2 pack (16 pictures)

    My only issue is the film takes 10-15 min to develop. when we're at home, its easy to just flip it upside down on the counter and leave it and set a timer so she can wait. I imagine it'd be more annoying out and about, because where do you store the picture.

    Hey Ya is not an instructional video.. do not shake these pictures like a polaroid

    if you want something fun to goof around for fun physical pictures and you don't have a photobooth near by, then its definitely a cool toy to have around.

    Micro Nostalgia!

    The Polaroid Go Camera-Everything Box is a great idea! That nostalgic feel when you line up your shot, hit the shutter button, see the flash, hear, and feel your image being captured and released into the world, there isn't much better. I love how Polaroid cameras are so interactive. This new Polaroid Go Camera captures all senses of any other Polaroid camera new or old. It is an easy camera for anyone to pick up and create creative images. It is small enough to store in a bag and even comes with a wrist lanyard if you desire to carry it. The camera viewfinder doubles as a selfie mirror to help you line up that perfect shot. The lightning bolt button on top of the camera has 3 options, flash/self-timer/Double Exposure Button. The display screen shows how many photos are left and if the flash is on or off and displays the camera mode. The color scheme is cool, I love the clean black and white look with the signature Polaroid rainbow stripe just over the lens.

    Everything about this camera makes me happy, almost everything. The one thing I had the biggest problem with was getting great-looking photos. I know this camera is supposed to take fun vintage-looking pictures, but in a lot of the photos I took you can barely make out what the subject in the photo is. I tried different ranges, different lighting, Keeping the dark slide over the image longer, not exposing the image to light while it was developing, longer development time. I even thought I may have gotten a bad film cartridge, so I went and bought new film. Nothing I did seemed to work. The best photo I got was a selfie in incredibly low light with flash. I really want to love this camera, but if it cannot take great photos then what's the point? If Polaroid comes out with a new type of film for this model, I will still go out and give those a try. In all, I am torn, I love this little machine, but it could be so much more! I think the idea is amazing, and I love the idea of vintage-looking photos, but with the one job of taking photos, they missed the mark with extremely blurry images.

    Pros:

    -Nostalgic feel, sounds, and function

    -Selfie Timer

    -Mirrored viewfinder to help line up selfies

    -Flash on/off

    -Simple operation

    -Wrist lanyard included

    -Charging cable included

    -Nifty foam double sides stickers to hang pictures anywhere

    -Small enough to take anywhere

    -Awesome color scheme

    -Free stickers!!

    Cons:

    -Picture quality

    -Micro USB cable (not USB-C)

    -Camera holds 8 photo slide cartridge

    -16 photo slides come in package (2 cartridges that have 8 photo slides per cartridge)

    Vintage Quality Photos

    The Polaroid Go camera and photos are both small and cute. The photos have a very vintage quality to them. I did find artifacts on some of the prints letting me know that the development process is a bit delicate but I think it has more to do with the defective film packs I got (more info below).

    I recommend a lot of lighting! I liked the outdoor/sunny photos I took. I also took some photos indoors in low lighting and the flash does help but flash-only will give you photos that are still a bit dark.

    The instructions say to leave the photo under the film shield for 5 seconds before removing it from the camera slot, and it’s also advised to let it develop either in a dark place or faced down on a flat surface. In the process of learning this camera, I also learned to be gentle with the photos while they’re developing.

    This instant camera is great for selfies as well as for wider shots, but not intended for maco (close up) shots. I took a close up picture of my dog and the background was in focus instead of him. That's a user error, not a Polaroid issue. Just a part of the learning process.

    This package comes with 2 film packs, 8 in each pack. Both of my film packs had an ink leaking issue that caused the photos to have discoloration in certain spots, which kind of lends even more to the vintage look, but I would definitely prefer a film pack that doesn’t have that issue. The ink would leak from the back of the photo as soon as it starts developing and I would either wipe it off carefully or just let it dry because it takes quite a few minutes to develop anyway. The leaking ink got on the film shield but it does not seem to have gotten on the front of any photos.

    The included quick start guide has a link to the manual online [polaroid.com/go-manual] which is how I learned to activate the Double Exposure (double tap flash button) and Self Timer (press flash button >2 seconds) modes.

    Overall, this is a fair product. I may have recommended the Polaroid Go if at least one of my film packs didn’t have the leaking issue, but both did. I will likely buy another set of film packs to test it out one more time. I like the idea of mini Polaroid photos but was disappointed by the defective film packs. I would be more excited to add the Polaroid Go to my instant camera collection if the film didn’t leak or discolor.

    Stepping Back Into Time

    Growing up in the late '70s and '80s was excited to test out the Polaroid Go Camera. The camera brings back the nostalgic feeling of what the cameras use to look like. As a child loved taking pictures with our polaroid. Would love to wait for the anticipated photo to develop. My review is based upon that feeling of growing up and the improvements I was anticipating. What I like about the revised camera is the feeling of durability, being lightweight, and smaller in comparison to the older version. The camera can fit in my small purse, but not pocket-size if wearing jeans.

    When I think of the on-the-go concept, I think of the convenience of the film developing automatically and quickly. I was not anticipating having to locate a place to turn over the film when taking pictures and expected the development time to go faster than when using past cameras. This took me by surprise, as the film took approximately 5 to 10 minutes to develop.

    I tested the camera outdoors and indoors by taking selfies, pictures of objects, and nature. When taking a selfie (image not posted), the film captured my face and the background came out dark evening when using the flash. When taking pictures outside I was able to capture an image of a tree by standing 3 feet from the object. Was expecting the image to appear more vibrant and vivid. Instead, the tree had more of a faded look. When taking a picture of an exercise therapy ball indoors the ball came out but the background once again was black.

    What was disappointing was the quality of the images not being the same as those back in the '80s or even better. I liked the idea and the concept. I really tried to like this camera, it's a No for Me.

    PROS:

    Pretty and Cute

    CONS:

    Image Quality

    Not pocket size

    Price Point.

    Was expecting more.

    Small camera with a big impact

    I love it. A cute camera to have and casually use where ever you go. Surprisingly, the size of the lens and viewfinder don't suffer, despite it's tiny build. You can get nice pictures out of it. Will they come out perfect all the time? No. Instant film is always unpredictable at times but this is such an easy to use camera, and very straightforward. And it also comes with a timer, flash toggle, and double exposure. What's not to love?

    Good one stop shop photo print solution

    This is a solid product with a few limitations. I managed to get it on sale for $50 off, so that felt like a decent price. Based on the build, touchscreen, and print quality, it’s definitely worth buying if you can get it closer to $200. Now, the camera quality is decent, but not the best. The prints look really good but that’s mostly due to the small size. It also does support a portable battery and has a holder for it on the back, but it is not included. If you are considering wall mounting this then the portable battery is a good option. The software looks to be a version of Android with a lot of the basic filters, frames, sticker art you would find on basic photo editing apps. It also has an SD card slot for saving photos. What makes this product cool is that it’s easy to setup for parties with the built in stand and it’s a one stop shop. There have been comments from people saying you can do all of what this product does cheaper with a separate Zink printer and phone, but that would require cords, clutter, and a lot more setup. In the end this is a cool item for parties or small events. If you have kids that want to photograph their exploits on a regular basis this would also work good for that. I think at $199 this thing would be a steal, at $299 it’s good buy, but only if you plan to use it frequently.

    Overall a good purchase.

    Overall this is a great product. It could be better in some aspects. But I'm not one to buy without doing my research, with the limited reviews though, it made it hard to decide if this would be worth it. But after purchasing it and using it, its actually pretty simple.

    Definitely use with good lighting. otherwise the images will come out dark/green. But for a cheaper, on the go photobooth option, this was great. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars, just based on the image quality being ehh. This machine would be better and sold more, if it was priced around $250 or so, where i fit best in price range based on quality of the machine and its images.

    Easy setup fun product

    Setup was really easy. The lighting (flash mode) isn't great we had to add extra lighting but overall its a fun product. Maybe a little high priced but my girlfriend really wanted it.

    Party planning on a budget

    I bought this to use in lieu of a photo booth for a party. We haven't had the party yet but this will serve the purpose with just a fraction of the price! The joy is in the instant pictures and the props, which this lets you do all of that. You can also save copies of your pictures to a memory card to put in a album for later. It was a great idea for a budget savvy situation.

    Nostalgia for me, Novelty for my kids

    This Polaroid really brings me back to the time these were extremely popular and used my families across the US to capture their favorite moments.

    The build quality and quirky design are amazingly great and my kids instantly wanted to touch and play with it. At nearly $2 per picture however, I wasn’t going to just give them free access to it without some supervision!!!

    That’s really the only negative in my opinion that will prevent me from using this more but it will definitely come with us on family trips to capture and immediately develop some pictures.

    Lastly, make sure to place the pictures face down for a outside 15 mins after taking the pictures while they develop or they will come out dark. Fanning them like the old ones doesn’t work to speed up development. Also while the camera does have a flash, good natural light photos will turn out out the best.

    Great blast from the past camera that will capture another generation of family moments!!!

    the classic photography with mobile app

    Review of Polaroid Now Plus.

    The camera is extraordinary that can image new way of experience with the classic photography.

    It comes with 5 filters, a USB charging cable, neck strap loop. The camera it self is easy to understand each buttons function at first glance,

    Connecting to the app process doesn’t get notice at all. In this aspect, as soon as download the app, and turn on bluetooth from the camera, immediate get connected without having to do the pre connection via bluetooth function from the phone.

    However, the use of the application feels bit odd as there seems to be lot of cool functions but felt alike lost. The application has function for self portrait, light painting, manual, self timer, double exposure, aperture, tripod, under the region My Now +. But to understand how it work each of them need multiple times trial and error process. For instance for portrait, it has indicator of if too close or too far, too dark and so on. I was not able to find when it is ready in first trial and gave up to use the shutter button from the camera.

    The camera itself I find cool and the fact that it can get connected and controlled via mobile phone makes greater imagination. But actually using the application it takes some time of usage at least from my end.

    Classic Camera with Cool Creativity Boosters

    TLDR:

    (that’s Too Long, Didn’t Read)

    Everything you love about instant analog photography plus some useful creativity tools in an app.

    Pros:

    * Simple controls.

    * Easy onboard control for basic adjustments.

    * Light and easy to carry.

    * Classic styling with snazzy stripes.

    Cons:

    * Steep learning curve if your first experience with analog instant photography.

    * Expensive per-shot costs.

    Summary:

    I’ve been a hobby level digital photographer for about 30 years. My first digital camera was a Casio with a now-laughable 320x240 resolution. I loved the benefits of a nearly Infinite camera roll and instant reviews of my shots. Over the years, digital camera resolution and quality has drastically improved, but at the end of the day, a digital photograph is still just a digital copy.

    Long before digital cameras emerged, a Polaroid camera was the ONLY way to take a photo and see the results per-shot without having to develop an entire roll. Polaroids were cool before instant digital photography was available. I applaud Polaroid for keeping instant analog photography alive! Today, its advantages are mostly as a unique creative tool.

    The Polaroid Now+ is yet another extension of the groundbreaking Polaroid camera for creators. The “+” part mainly offers a BTLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connection with an app on your phone. This type of connection doesn’t require pairing so it’s fast and easy to use. The app enables a lot of cool creative tools like a remote shutter, full manual controls, double-exposure and light painting that basically is a really long exposure so you can “draw” with the light from your phone (or a flashlight, etc.).

    The is a nice addition, but you can also do a lot without it. There are only four buttons on the actual camera but they allow you to do a lot of stuff fairly easily. The shutter and power buttons basically do what you’d expect of them. The Flash button doubles not only to turn the flash off for the next photo or until the next power cycle but can also temporarily adjust the camera’s exposure to “more”, “normal” or “less.” This model now has a “+” button on the front which is used to set a self-timer, start a double exposure mode or do whatever favorite mode you assigned from the app. You can also hold that “+” button while turning the camera on to get a more detailed battery level reading on the single-digit display.

    Being used to instant digital photography, most of my first 8 photos did not come out well. Polaroids really love light and a steady hand. For me, getting used to analog instant photography has been a steep learning curve but one that I’m sure will pay off with creative results that are not easy to match with a now-ubiquitous digital camera.

    I really enjoy the classic styling of this camera and enjoy the colorful stripes on the front. The eyepiece is rubberized for comfort and the provided shoulder straps are easily removable if you need to do so. There’s a tripod mount on the bottom for steadier shots and the supplied creative lenses add some flair to your photos; although they are a tad cumbersome to store in the provided canvas roll which does not have a way to clip it to anything. I especially liked the effects of the Starburst filter but the others have uses as well.

    If you’re used to Polaroid photography and are looking for more tools to express your creativity, this camera will not let you down. If you’re new to analog instant photography, you might want to buy a few extra packs of film to go with your camera so you can experiment and get used to the differences of shooting analog. Either way, you won’t be disappointed in this medium where each photo is a unique one-of-a-kind.

    Nice update to the original

    This is a modern version of the original camera. Looks and feels just like it. The upgrades are a nice touch. It's instant film again. The camera is easy to use, just charge, open up the bottom front and drop in film. After that you can just start taking pictures. The view finder has nothing in it, just point and shoot. Flash works automatically if on. After the picture comes out, it takes around 15 minutes to develop. So, kids need some patience. The pictures come out nice, just make sure you have enough light.

    The Bluetooth functions add some more capabilities to the camera. With Bluetooth pairing and the Polaroid App you get, Remote picture taking, time delayed picture taking, Double Exposure pictures, Aperture changes, tripod setting, portrait setting, Light painting (longer shutter open), and a manual setting (aperture and shutter). All can help you make better pictures.

    One issue with using any of the included colored lens or the advanced settings is the view finder. It’s not connected to anything in the camera, so if you use the sunburst lens, clear center with tinted around the outside, you can only guess if you have the subject in the right spot. The film is expensive, but it’s twice as big as the smaller instant cameras. You only get 8 pictures per tray. The camera can use 600 and i-Type film. It takes 15 minutes to fully develop. The charger is exposed, no cover, so don’t get it water near it. Overall, it’s a fun easy to use camera with film coming out instantly.

    Has Potential

    As a Polaroid camera, it does exactly what you would expect from a polaroid camera in terms of quality and usage. It does have 21st-century technology to go with it also, but it's not much.

    To me, using the buttons on the camera could be confusing at times. "How do I set a timer?" "How do I set double exposure?" And even though there is a paper guide you wouldn't want to haul it around with you. What makes this process simpler is the phone application because you can set your options and mode from there. Beyond that, the technology part ends there.

    At the very least it was instantly paired. I didn't have to touch my Bluetooth settings and I never lost connection. But if you ever memorize the buttons and corresponding light modes the app becomes pointless. I'm not sure what hardware limitations there are for Polaroid technology but I would love to see more functionality. How cool would it be to make the printing portion optional and you're suddenly able to take digital, uploadable shots all the time with this camera?! I'm sure and I'm hoping the polaroid team has more ideas for the future.

    The flash is necessary for photos and blinding. After your shot, you will see spots in your eyes ten minutes later. Without it, the pictures will come out unrecognizable and poor. Granted, I only took the photos inside my room next to a lamp yet it still struggled to pick up light. And the areas where the picture was lit up it was over-exposed. The quality just wasn't there. The quality of these photos is something you would expect from the 80s or earlier, which is disappointing coming from a modern take on this camera technology.

    I know Poloraid has made smaller versions of these cameras and I haven't tried them, but this one, in particular, is bulky.

    Overall, I think the best use case for this camera would be to take photos of a person or object outside.

    Lastly, the film is pricey. I did want to try all the filters included but when you think about it, it's essentially $2 per shot. And for me, to slap on any of the filters to see what it looks like is not worth $2.

    To wrap this all up you must think I hate this thing. I hate that it was not executed properly. I hate that it's expensive. The idea behind it is great. The first photo I took immediately took me back to my childhood. I immediately imagined it being the 90s again and my mom handing me all the photos we just developed. Except our point and shoot took better photos, was cheaper and the film was cheaper, by a factor of 10x cheaper. This camera has the power to create great experiences and unearth old ones, and it's almost there.

    Nostalgia with a boost in tech and cost.

    This is a perfect gift for someone with an artistic itch and wants to get the Polaroid experience of taking and printing photos. Although the process isn’t identical, it’s very close and this unit is packed with more features than any model from the old days had.

    The first feature that sticks out is this lens! It’s huge compared to the original cameras this is based on. The flash on this is large as well but unfortunately taking photos with this will require a lot of light. More than what this provides normally. It works so much better in a lot of sunlight or plenty of indoor lighting. As with any new camera, or printer for that matter, it takes several photos to be able to dial it in and get a feel for it. So, if you are committed or getting this as a gift, I would definitely recommend getting extra film for it.

    Additional features available through the app are also something you certainly won’t find on the models of yesteryear. Which makes this as fun to use for 90’s kids as it is for today’s kids who are itching for immediate and tangible media in the moment. And the construction definitely gives you some confidence in its structural integrity when being handed around in the presence of children who might be less careful with it.

    Fun novelty, but expensive

    I was excited to try out a new generation of Polaroid cameras after growing up with one and loving it as a child. Sadly, I am disappointed considering the price of the camera and the film. It seems like they could do better on either the technology or the price. The camera definitely has some fun and impressive new features for the 21st Century. I can use my phone to control the shutter activation and speed, and add in special effects like writing with light, catching motion in the dark, or doing a double exposure where two images are superimposed on one another.

    As someone who has embraced digital photography, it is intimidating to have to be extremely conservative with the number of images I take, then I have to wait 15 minutes to see if I even got the shot. Sadly, none of my shots so far have turned out great. I have tried multiple lighting environments and they either come out too dark or too light. One image didn't come out at all. I do not know if the film was bad, or my living room lights were not enough, even though the camera's automatic light sensor did not feel that it was necessary to fire the flash.

    I at least like the app's ability to scan in the pictures. It does a great job of scanning the exposed film, while avoiding any glares, to show a great representation of the original image. I also like that the camera can be mounted on a tripod. This allows for some great low-light capabilities and group shots when the photographer wants to be in the picture. I can either set a timer through the app, or I can remotely activate the shutter with the simple push of a button in the app. Both are extremely easy to do. Speaking of which, the app effortlessly connects to the camera. Simply open the app and turn on the camera - that was it. I did not even have to pair the camera to the phone. They just knew they were meant for each other.

    I am really mixed on whether I would recommend this to a friend. If they want the nostalgia of Polaroid, go for it. But, if they want the ability to instantly print good pictures, it's cheaper to buy a photo printer. Maybe my expectations were too high. I am disappointed, and I would not consider this a toy considering the price of the camera and the film.

    Memories from the good ol'days

    This is so cool!

    First off let me cover the unboxing. It was pretty straight forward you get the camera, a small cube style pouch with some filters that you can put on if you want, and a charging cable along with a pouch that has 16 total poloroid pictures you can take. And a black fabric string to keep the camera around your neck if you want.

    As far as buttons very easy to figure out, and adding the picture cartridge is pretty easy, I put it in the wrong way initially and it didn't close so i then put it correctly and it closed and spit out a cute message to let you know its ready to go.

    So... Tomorrow we go to Universal and we plan on using most of our pictures then but so far its so fun! Colors are awesome and the app is very intuitive and easy to understand.

    This is a great holiday gift for those that might not like technology or are afraid of it (like grandma/grandpa or parents) as it can be used with or without the app and is "old fashioned" but MUCH more improved and cooler then the really old fashioned versions. The pictures are incredibly clean and rich and so quick too! Love it very fun.

    I was excited to try out a new generation of Polaroid cameras after growing up with one and loving it as a child. Sadly, I am disappointed considering the price of the camera and the film. It seems like they could do better on either the technology or the price. The camera definitely has some fun and impressive new features for the 21st Century. I can use my phone to control the shutter activation and speed, and add in special effects like writing with light, catching motion in the dark, or doing a double exposure where two images are superimposed on one another.

    As someone who has embraced digital photography, it is intimidating to have to be extremely conservative with the number of images I take, then I have to wait 15 minutes to see if I even got the shot. Sadly, none of my shots so far have turned out great. I have tried multiple lighting environments and they either come out too dark or too light. One image didn't come out at all. I do not know if the film was bad, or my living room lights were not enough, even though the camera's automatic light sensor did not feel that it was necessary to fire the flash.

    I at least like the app's ability to scan in the pictures. It does a great job of scanning the exposed film, while avoiding any glares, to show a great representation of the original image. I also like that the camera can be mounted on a tripod. This allows for some great low-light capabilities and group shots when the photographer wants to be in the picture. I can either set a timer through the app, or I can remotely activate the shutter with the simple push of a button in the app. Both are extremely easy to do. Speaking of which, the app effortlessly connects to the camera. Simply open the app and turn on the camera - that was it. I did not even have to pair the camera to the phone. They just knew they were meant for each other.

    I am really mixed on whether I would recommend this to a friend. If they want the nostalgia of Polaroid, go for it. But, if they want the ability to instantly print good pictures, it's cheaper to buy a photo printer. Maybe my expectations were too high. I am disappointed, and I would not consider this a toy considering the price of the camera and the film.

    Memories from the good ol'days

    This is so cool!

    First off let me cover the unboxing. It was pretty straight forward you get the camera, a small cube style pouch with some filters that you can put on if you want, and a charging cable along with a pouch that has 16 total poloroid pictures you can take. And a black fabric string to keep the camera around your neck if you want.

    As far as buttons very easy to figure out, and adding the picture cartridge is pretty easy, I put it in the wrong way initially and it didn't close so i then put it correctly and it closed and spit out a cute message to let you know its ready to go.

    So... Tomorrow we go to Universal and we plan on using most of our pictures then but so far its so fun! Colors are awesome and the app is very intuitive and easy to understand.

    This is a great holiday gift for those that might not like technology or are afraid of it (like grandma/grandpa or parents) as it can be used with or without the app and is "old fashioned" but MUCH more improved and cooler then the really old fashioned versions. The pictures are incredibly clean and rich and so quick too! Love it very fun.

    Nostalgia for me, Novelty for my kids

    This Polaroid really brings me back to the time these were extremely popular and used my families across the US to capture their favorite moments.

    The build quality and quirky design are amazingly great and my kids instantly wanted to touch and play with it. At nearly $2 per picture however, I wasn’t going to just give them free access to it without some supervision!!!

    That’s really the only negative in my opinion that will prevent me from using this more but it will definitely come with us on family trips to capture and immediately develop some pictures.

    Lastly, make sure to place the pictures face down for a outside 15 mins after taking the pictures while they develop or they will come out dark. Fanning them like the old ones doesn’t work to speed up development. Also while the camera does have a flash, good natural light photos will turn out out the best.

    Great blast from the past camera that will capture another generation of family moments!!!

    the classic photography with mobile app

    Review of Polaroid Now Plus.

    The camera is extraordinary that can image new way of experience with the classic photography.

    It comes with 5 filters, a USB charging cable, neck strap loop. The camera it self is easy to understand each buttons function at first glance,

    Connecting to the app process doesn’t get notice at all. In this aspect, as soon as download the app, and turn on bluetooth from the camera, immediate get connected without having to do the pre connection via bluetooth function from the phone.

    However, the use of the application feels bit odd as there seems to be lot of cool functions but felt alike lost. The application has function for self portrait, light painting, manual, self timer, double exposure, aperture, tripod, under the region My Now +. But to understand how it work each of them need multiple times trial and error process. For instance for portrait, it has indicator of if too close or too far, too dark and so on. I was not able to find when it is ready in first trial and gave up to use the shutter button from the camera.

    The camera itself I find cool and the fact that it can get connected and controlled via mobile phone makes greater imagination. But actually using the application it takes some time of usage at least from my end.

    Classic Camera with Cool Creativity Boosters

    TLDR:

    (that’s Too Long, Didn’t Read)

    Everything you love about instant analog photography plus some useful creativity tools in an app.

    Pros:

    * Simple controls.

    * Easy onboard control for basic adjustments.

    * Light and easy to carry.

    * Classic styling with snazzy stripes.

    Cons:

    * Steep learning curve if your first experience with analog instant photography.

    * Expensive per-shot costs.

    Summary:

    I’ve been a hobby level digital photographer for about 30 years. My first digital camera was a Casio with a now-laughable 320x240 resolution. I loved the benefits of a nearly Infinite camera roll and instant reviews of my shots. Over the years, digital camera resolution and quality has drastically improved, but at the end of the day, a digital photograph is still just a digital copy.

    Long before digital cameras emerged, a Polaroid camera was the ONLY way to take a photo and see the results per-shot without having to develop an entire roll. Polaroids were cool before instant digital photography was available. I applaud Polaroid for keeping instant analog photography alive! Today, its advantages are mostly as a unique creative tool.

    The Polaroid Now+ is yet another extension of the groundbreaking Polaroid camera for creators. The “+” part mainly offers a BTLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connection with an app on your phone. This type of connection doesn’t require pairing so it’s fast and easy to use. The app enables a lot of cool creative tools like a remote shutter, full manual controls, double-exposure and light painting that basically is a really long exposure so you can “draw” with the light from your phone (or a flashlight, etc.).

    The is a nice addition, but you can also do a lot without it. There are only four buttons on the actual camera but they allow you to do a lot of stuff fairly easily. The shutter and power buttons basically do what you’d expect of them. The Flash button doubles not only to turn the flash off for the next photo or until the next power cycle but can also temporarily adjust the camera’s exposure to “more”, “normal” or “less.” This model now has a “+” button on the front which is used to set a self-timer, start a double exposure mode or do whatever favorite mode you assigned from the app. You can also hold that “+” button while turning the camera on to get a more detailed battery level reading on the single-digit display.

    Being used to instant digital photography, most of my first 8 photos did not come out well. Polaroids really love light and a steady hand. For me, getting used to analog instant photography has been a steep learning curve but one that I’m sure will pay off with creative results that are not easy to match with a now-ubiquitous digital camera.

    I really enjoy the classic styling of this camera and enjoy the colorful stripes on the front. The eyepiece is rubberized for comfort and the provided shoulder straps are easily removable if you need to do so. There’s a tripod mount on the bottom for steadier shots and the supplied creative lenses add some flair to your photos; although they are a tad cumbersome to store in the provided canvas roll which does not have a way to clip it to anything. I especially liked the effects of the Starburst filter but the others have uses as well.

    If you’re used to Polaroid photography and are looking for more tools to express your creativity, this camera will not let you down. If you’re new to analog instant photography, you might want to buy a few extra packs of film to go with your camera so you can experiment and get used to the differences of shooting analog. Either way, you won’t be disappointed in this medium where each photo is a unique one-of-a-kind.

    Nice update to the original

    This is a modern version of the original camera. Looks and feels just like it. The upgrades are a nice touch. It's instant film again. The camera is easy to use, just charge, open up the bottom front and drop in film. After that you can just start taking pictures. The view finder has nothing in it, just point and shoot. Flash works automatically if on. After the picture comes out, it takes around 15 minutes to develop. So, kids need some patience. The pictures come out nice, just make sure you have enough light.

    The Bluetooth functions add some more capabilities to the camera. With Bluetooth pairing and the Polaroid App you get, Remote picture taking, time delayed picture taking, Double Exposure pictures, Aperture changes, tripod setting, portrait setting, Light painting (longer shutter open), and a manual setting (aperture and shutter). All can help you make better pictures.

    One issue with using any of the included colored lens or the advanced settings is the view finder. It’s not connected to anything in the camera, so if you use the sunburst lens, clear center with tinted around the outside, you can only guess if you have the subject in the right spot. The film is expensive, but it’s twice as big as the smaller instant cameras. You only get 8 pictures per tray. The camera can use 600 and i-Type film. It takes 15 minutes to fully develop. The charger is exposed, no cover, so don’t get it water near it. Overall, it’s a fun easy to use camera with film coming out instantly.

    Has Potential

    As a Polaroid camera, it does exactly what you would expect from a polaroid camera in terms of quality and usage. It does have 21st-century technology to go with it also, but it's not much.

    To me, using the buttons on the camera could be confusing at times. "How do I set a timer?" "How do I set double exposure?" And even though there is a paper guide you wouldn't want to haul it around with you. What makes this process simpler is the phone application because you can set your options and mode from there. Beyond that, the technology part ends there.

    At the very least it was instantly paired. I didn't have to touch my Bluetooth settings and I never lost connection. But if you ever memorize the buttons and corresponding light modes the app becomes pointless. I'm not sure what hardware limitations there are for Polaroid technology but I would love to see more functionality. How cool would it be to make the printing portion optional and you're suddenly able to take digital, uploadable shots all the time with this camera?! I'm sure and I'm hoping the polaroid team has more ideas for the future.

    The flash is necessary for photos and blinding. After your shot, you will see spots in your eyes ten minutes later. Without it, the pictures will come out unrecognizable and poor. Granted, I only took the photos inside my room next to a lamp yet it still struggled to pick up light. And the areas where the picture was lit up it was over-exposed. The quality just wasn't there. The quality of these photos is something you would expect from the 80s or earlier, which is disappointing coming from a modern take on this camera technology.

    I know Poloraid has made smaller versions of these cameras and I haven't tried them, but this one, in particular, is bulky.

    Overall, I think the best use case for this camera would be to take photos of a person or object outside.

    Lastly, the film is pricey. I did want to try all the filters included but when you think about it, it's essentially $2 per shot. And for me, to slap on any of the filters to see what it looks like is not worth $2.

    To wrap this all up you must think I hate this thing. I hate that it was not executed properly. I hate that it's expensive. The idea behind it is great. The first photo I took immediately took me back to my childhood. I immediately imagined it being the 90s again and my mom handing me all the photos we just developed. Except our point and shoot took better photos, was cheaper and the film was cheaper, by a factor of 10x cheaper. This camera has the power to create great experiences and unearth old ones, and it's almost there.

    Nostalgia with a boost in tech and cost.

    This is a perfect gift for someone with an artistic itch and wants to get the Polaroid experience of taking and printing photos. Although the process isn’t identical, it’s very close and this unit is packed with more features than any model from the old days had.

    The first feature that sticks out is this lens! It’s huge compared to the original cameras this is based on. The flash on this is large as well but unfortunately taking photos with this will require a lot of light. More than what this provides normally. It works so much better in a lot of sunlight or plenty of indoor lighting. As with any new camera, or printer for that matter, it takes several photos to be able to dial it in and get a feel for it. So, if you are committed or getting this as a gift, I would definitely recommend getting extra film for it.

    Additional features available through the app are also something you certainly won’t find on the models of yesteryear. Which makes this as fun to use for 90’s kids as it is for today’s kids who are itching for immediate and tangible media in the moment. And the construction definitely gives you some confidence in its structural integrity when being handed around in the presence of children who might be less careful with it.

    Keeps front element clean, still has flares.

    This filter adds flares to images when pointed at light source. Kind of disappointed as it says it's multi coated. Oh well you get what you pay for. It has pretty good threading and build quality. Useful as protection from dirt on lens. Not bad for price paid.
