Polaroid 600 Invent America Instant Film Camera
The Invent America 600 Camera is from the Invent America education program. Invent America was a non-profit program that appears to have started in the late 1980s. The main purpose was to give teachers guidance on how to make children ready for the next coming decades, preparing and educating for the 21st century. This was a big push back in the 80's and 90's. The program was geared toward helping kids be the hope we all need for the future and teaching students to be problem solvers, inventive creators, and invoke teamwork in addition to personal drive.
"Invent America" was a slogan of hope for the kids in the 80's & 90's, a remnant of history that we can still revere today. The kids, will be the future someday.
This camera has been completely restored and tested and is ready for another generation of photo taking. All you need is a pack of Polaroid 600 film and this camera is ready to shoot.

The high speed of 600 film, which requires less light, combined with a built-in flash and fixed focusing, form an incredibly versatile instant film camera that’s easy to use and ready to excel in nearly any situation. When it comes time to take a picture, remember: Polaroid film is sensitive to light, so keep it shielded, or in a dark place, for several minutes while it's developing so you can get the most vivid result.
Their perfect blend of form and function may be ageless, but to make sure everything works like new, the team at Retrospekt carefully refurbishes every Polaroid camera by hand from the inside out. Each camera is cleaned, serviced and tested to ensure complete functionality for another lifetime of use.
