We love restoring Polaroid cameras. Like, really love. And when we get to make Polaroid cameras for incredible companies like Parks Project, who gives a portion of proceeds back to our National Parks, there’s even more to love. Really.
When we make custom cameras, we always start with all original internal parts. These cameras were designed to last, and the inside components just need a little bit of TLC to get up to snuff again. Then we mold new outer shells, based on Polaroid’s original 80s camera design and aesthetic elements. The Retrospekt team re-assembles the cameras by hand, fueled with coffee, bad punk rock music, and, well, a lot of love. The end product is a part new, part classic and wholly licensed as officially Polaroid.
Check out the camera and happy Valentine’s Day from your analog loving friends at Retrospekt.
