The Fascination Behind Polaroid Cameras

The Rarity of Polaroids

Almost everyone is fascinated with Polaroid cameras. People enjoy tangible objects more than just seeing them digitally. It is because there is a sense of connection to the instant photos that Polaroids produce, as it begins to develop by itself in your hand that very moment you take a photo. The physical image is ready instantly for the individual to enjoy immediately. Vintage lovers tend to adore Polaroids simply because they are retro, vintage, and rare to find or use anymore. Film and history lovers love Polaroids as well because it is a tangible piece of history! 


Photography Available at Your Fingertips 

In today's modern times, there is a demand for instant gratification. For modern digital cameras, the photos typically need to get edited and printed, which takes a bit of time. Polaroids were introduced in the late 1940s. While our digital technology has enhanced so much since then, it simply takes longer for photos to be ready. When one uses a Polaroid, the photo is ready instantly. This is why instant film is still a phenomenon to this day. 


Rising Popularity of Polaroid Cameras 

In 1948, the first Polaroid Land Model 95 camera was created. Little did the world know how popular this was going to become. Polaroid did not manufacture nearly enough copies of the first camera, as they severely underestimated the demand from consumers. The entire supply sold out in one day! 


Polaroid and Edwin Land continued to move forward and improve instant photography ideas. Multiple different types of film became available, some of which have features containing ways to expose, develop, and fix a photograph for efficiently. Inside a Polaroid camera contains multiple color layers that are light sensitive. Specific chemical reactions to the photo occur when exposed to light. Those light sensitive layers are squeezed together with a bottom base layer of black and four more layers on top. Those additional top layers hold the photo together and distinguishes it from any other photo. It is how you know a photo is a Polaroid photo.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
