    Pros:
    - The pictures always seem to come out great. Because you only have one chance at a photo with this camera I think that this is paramount. (I ALWAYS close my eyes in photos and with the 300 I have so far had 15 flawless photos)
    - Great to share photos with friends (though they are hard to give away, especially because of the cost for each photo)
    - Easy to take photos of yourself with friends, they look better than point and shoot photos because they are meant to be taken up close
    - The quality of photo is what is expected of an instant camera. It is a little on the grainier side if taken too far away, but in general the quality ads character and doesn't take away from the "feeling" of the shot like some cameras with too bright a flash.

    Cons:
    - Shape is a little awkward
    - On the bulkier side
    - The button to take the photo is in a strange spot so you have to constantly remind anyone who is playing with it not to pull out the lens (turns it on) and by accident take a picture
    - Photos are VERY expensive (about $1 each and comes in packs of 10)

    tips:
    - Take the photos up close (closer than you would think)
    - Don't let too many people play with it, otherwise you may end up with wasted film

    Overall, I love this camera. People always comment on how great the photos come out. If only it wasn't a little more portable!

    I bought this for my daughter at her request. It is, in my opinion, one of the single most pointless devices, photographic or otherwise, I have ever seen. Unless you are in market for poorly exposed, expensive prints smaller than a business card, and enjoy hunting for difficult to obtain film (even Polaroid was back-ordered), I strongly recommend investigating the Fujifilm version. I wish I had.

      I ordered this Camera from another company and much to my disappointment we received it broken in half. It was for my granddaughters 12th Birthday. My daughter-in-law recommened B&H. The camera arrived in perfect condition and my granddaughter says it is "AWESOME!" Thank you B&H and am looking forward to further purchases from your company.......

        I like taking pictures and having the results in my hand instantly.

        I was surprised by the small size of the photo - tiny compared to the original Polaroid Instamatic.

              Bought for our teenage daughter this Christmas. She wanted a polaroid so she could give prints to friends. Digital cameras and phone cameras are great but who makes prints these days? This is ideal. Prints are a bit spend but the novelty factor is a hit with friends and she enjoys having the prints handy right away.I think one big benefit is that as film rolls/packs are finite vs digital files and there is a price attached to each, more care and attention goes into each picture, which can only make a better photographer in the long run.Fun camera.

                I gave this to my 14 year old for Christmas. She's been asking for one for years, but I had memories of my old poloroid, with the poor picture quality, cracking images and expensive film cartridges. She broke me down and she absolutely loves it. As mentioned in it's description, it does take smaller photos than a standard Poloroid. The picture quality is as you would expect; not much improvement in the last 40 years. But let's face it. You're not buying this camera for great pictures. You're buying it for fun and and the "wow" factor and it does not disappoint.

                              this camera was definitely a hit with my high school students during club rush week. Pics are smallish compared with the older classic Polaroid but super fun and easy. I think we shot 100 pics in a few hours and every kid wanted to try it again.

                                I feel free to use this instant camera to take special pictures.
                                illumination is great
                                60mm focus is very good
                                i wish the flash could be disactivated when weather is sunny, on mode fine or clear, so to take more natural picture.
                                very easy to use.

                                        My wife uses this camera to take pictures when baby-sitting and she gives a print to the parents at the end of the day when they pickup their child.

                                        Parents loved it! This is so simple to operate even my six year daughter can make pictures and prints instantly.

                                        I was so excited to get this and it is truly a little gem. It makes me feel like I'm in the 90s again. It'll take a few shots before you realize what lighting looks good and how far away you should take a photo but once that is sorted out you will have wonderful bright Polaroids! I recommend this to anyone who loves 'old school' inspired stuff and just loves photography and taking pics overall.

                                            I bought it for my daughter, she's 5. She likes it very much. Always takes it for recording interesting things. The picture is just fine.

                                              I bought this as a gift for my 4 year old niece. It turned out to be a fantastic choice. She was thrilled to receive it and hasn't stopped using it since. The operation is super simple, the unit has a decent build, and polaroids provide instant creative manifestation. Just what the world needs; another photographer! The only drawback is the price of the film...

                                              Such a cool camera....only thing is the price of the film - at about a buck a shot, definitely not for little kids. Gave this camera to my college age daughter for her study abroad trip to Ecuador. She only took 2 pictures over Christmas so she could save the film. Pictures are only about the size of a business card but its a blast watching them develop.
