Turn back time with the Instant Photo Printing Camera


The Instant Photo Printing Camera brings back the days of the old Polaroid cameras that shot out a piece of photo paper so you could watch your photo develop right before your eyes.  I don’t think you’ll watch these develop, but using “a self-developing high-speed film, the camera produces a vibrant, scrapbook-worthy 2.5″ H x 3.75″ W color print in only 20 seconds.”  The camera has a auto-retracting lens, automatic exposure control, built-in auto flash, optical viewfinder, motorized film advance, and an LCD control panel that displays focal distance and film count to make getting great photos easy.  It comes with a snap-on lens with a mirror for close-ups and “selfies”, wrist strap, and four AA batteries, plus a 20-count pack of film to get you started.  The Instant Photo Printing Camera is $149.95; Hammacher Schlemmer is taking pre-orders for shipping on 3/9/2015.  Extra packs of the paper for the camera is also available for $24.95 per pack.

    Original Polaroid Land Camera 1948.

    Plus ça change, plus la même chose.

    What does TBT stand for?

    TBT = Tyrannosaurus Biting Tourists.

    Something you definitely want a camera for.

      Wouldn’t a video camera be better for that than a still camera? 🙂

    Well, when I use it, I mean “turn back time”. Now I’m hoping that’s what all the hashtags I’ve been seeing lately means, too! 😉

    #tbt usually means ThrowBackThursday where individuals will post old pictures of themselves on Thursdays. #mcm is ManCrushMondays and #wcw is WomanCrushWednesdays and #ss is SelfieSunday.

      @HungAD that’s what I had guessed it was, but since Janet posted it on a Friday, I was confused 😉

    Fuji Instax cameras and film are growing in popularity lately. A lot of pro photographers will use Fuji’s SP-1 printer to hand out physical prints during a shoot. I’m assuming this is an unbranded version of Fuji’s Instax 210.

    Since I’m a total failure knowing what the kids are saying these days, I changed the title… Now, how is it that I make a blushing smilie?

      😉 Ha! No biggie. I am not usually all that clued in either. #too-old-to-care 🙂

        I just hope Rachel never sees this, or she’ll never quit mocking me for being such a doofus!
