Item details

This unique polaroid camera made in the 1990s has been cleaned and refurbished having been purchased at a local auction.

You can utilise pre-recorded messages within the camera before you take a shot, or record your own. These are emitted from a speaker within the camera so you can inform the people that you are snapping away at not to say cheddar but to say cheese without saying a word!

Taking 600 Polaroid film, you can load up and point and shoot safe in the knowledge that you have a good bit of kit in your hands.

The body itself is in excellent condition. There is some minor scuffing on the left side of the camera (as illustrated on the photos) however this doesn't detract from it's functionality in any way. The front of the Polaroid is bright, clean and in mint condition. The shutter is strong and the rollers are sound.


Lens - 106mm / built-in fixed-focus single-element plastic.
Focus range - 4ft – infinity.
Flash - Built-in automatic electronic flash (powered by batteries in film; film sold separately).
Flash range - 2ft – 10ft.
Maximum aperture - f/14.
Minimum aperture - f/42.
Shutter speed - 1/3 to 1/200th second.
Film: Uses 600 film for Polaroid™ cameras and the Impossible Instant Lab.
Camera powered by internal battery element included in film.

This would be a wonderful addition to any polaroid collection or for anyone who fancies getting hold of a great instant camera.

Additional policies


I spend a lot of time carefully packaging typewriters ready for shipping. I use strong cardboard boxes, high quality bubble wrap, protective materials and fragile tape to ensure maximum protection and safe transit. All typewriters are also wrapped with a lovely bow on top to hopefully add to the joy of opening your parcel :)

All typewriters are fully insured and trackable so you can monitor your machine's journey across the world.

I always ship using either UPS, DPD, Hermes or Parcel Force.


Not for a long time! I always install a brand new ribbon for every typewriter I sell. This means you can get using your new machine straight away and don't have to worry about getting inky hands!

Ribbons are 10 metres long and last for a hundred pages or more, so they do not need to be replaced regularly.


I only sell fully functional typewriters. Period.

I take time to sympathetically clean, repair, service, test and restore them as needed. You will always receive a fully working machine that has been lovingly restored to its original state (or as close to as possible!)

Nearly every vintage typewriter on the planet will have slight traces of use. These are not flaws, but merely part of their charm and history. Everything will be in perfect working condition, but please ensure that you look carefully and enquire if you have any queries with any items before you buy. I work very hard to give highly accurate and clear descriptions of all the machines I sell. Please read the description of the typewriter you wish to purchase. If there is anything that needs highlighting, it'll say it there. If you have any queries, please drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to help.
