Blue, Pink and Yellow Swirl 600 Instant Film Camera
We didn't set out to create this swirl — it came to us as a happy accident. Every so often a swirled part or two is created as a byproduct of our injection molding process.
When switching between different colors of the same part, the new color is fed into the machine to push the old color out. This generally results in a few muddy blends, with no real definition between colors. But every so often, for one or two glorious presses, the colors balance, swirling together but not fully mixing. Each time a bit different.
There are no pre-existing swirled instant cameras — both because Polaroid rarely molded colored plastic in the 80s (they almost always just did black) and because strict adherence to a uniform, mass-market production standard would have sent such parts to the trash. These one-of-a-kind swirling patterns are our favorite little mutants of our larger manufacturing process.
This vintage 600 instant camera has been refurbished and is ready for another generation of photo-taking. All you need is a pack of Polaroid 600 film (sold separately) and you’ll be able to experience instant photography at its most authentic — on an original Polaroid vintage camera!
