Cameras are gaining quite a bit of popularity now that a lot of people have one in their hand to capture those special moments. Recently, actual cameras were less preferred and more people preferred to utilize the cameras on their cellphones. However, there are different cameras being developed, and you will be able to see various kinds on the market.
Some of the options are based on the ability to get specialty shots and more adventurous videos, but others are based on the ability to print pictures whenever you want them.
The Polaroid PIC-300 is one of the second types of cameras, allowing you to get any shot that you want in a moment, rather than taking the film into a store to get developed. You can point and shoot just like any other camera, but be careful what you click on because that’s the image you’re going to get, and it will immediately be printed out for you.
Because it’s small, it’s capable of being carried along in your wallet or bag at any time, and it can take up to 10 pictures with one cartridge to get you more than enough for a single day or a special trip.
The Polaroid PIC-300 is an all-around camera that allows you to get a good-quality shot while not sacrificing the immediacy of the moment. You’ll be able to quickly snap the picture and then use it for anything you want. It has many other features which include:
- Lightweight and easy to carry
- Uses Polaroid 300 Instant Film
- Automatic features for easier use
- Prints quickly
- High-quality photos with bright color
- Several settings for lighting conditions
- Fun to use
- Pictures are very small
- Pictures are expensive based on film cost
- Not for everyday or extended use
- Difficult to angle finger to take pictures without being in the picture
- A viewfinder is slightly off what the picture will be
The Polaroid PIC-300 Instant Film Camera is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and still large enough to get the perfect shot without any problems. It’s available in four different colors that are all priced similarly, so you can get something that matches your preference and style.
You’ll be able to get plenty of great quality pictures because the camera is able to use instant film to provide you with exactly what you want without having to wait a long time either. You don’t even have to get the film developed after taking the picture and can just start handing them out.
Overall, this camera is able to do just about anything that a full-size camera can do, and it has manual exposure settings, automatic flash, automatic adjustments, 1/60 second shutter speed and a wrist strap that makes it easier to hold. It has 60mm focal length and is light enough that you can carry it in your bag at any time without any concerns.
There’s even an electronic viewfinder to make sure you get the image that you want and all you have to do is press down the button to get the shot.
Slightly more expensive, the Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera comes in a range of different colors just like this one but with a little different style. This camera is a little smaller and it’s flat, like a digital camera.
It offers the same number of pictures, but they are a little smaller and don’t have the iconic strips around the outside that Polaroid cameras have always had. They are just like a regular printed image. These also have an adhesive back so you can post them wherever you want, and the camera saves a copy of the image so you can use it for other purposes as well, without losing the image.
Nearly identical to our original camera is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9. It is less expensive, though not by much, and almost exactly the same style, as well as being available in five different colors. It’s a little bit heavier, but it has a lot of the same features available.
The pictures are printed directly out of the top of the unit and are completely ready in just about a minute. Overall, this is a very similar unit and the main difference is that they are made by different manufacturers. These two can even use the same film if you prefer one over the other and print out images that are the same size and same style between the two.
Overall, the Polaroid PIC-300 is a great camera for people who are into vintage styles, and for those who want to print pictures immediately.
The camera isn’t designed to be the only camera that you own, but it is designed to give you a way to get all three of these other factors. Compared to the Polaroid Snap, you’re not getting the digital upload capability and it’s not quite as small, but it does have a lower price tag and more unique style overall.
Compared to the Fujifilm there are actually fewer differences as the cameras use the same film, are very similar in design, and have a similar price tag. This one does have different color options, and is slightly lighter compared to the Fujifilm, however. When compared, it seems that the Polaroid does have a lot of features and benefits over the other two options and still provides photos at a reasonable price point to balance out.
This camera is favored over traditional cameras for specific reasons such as the ability to print immediately, the small size makes it compact, and ultimately becomes a good investment.
