PolaPros Offer Vintage Polaroid Instant Cameras from the 70s and 80s


Growing up, it wasn’t a holiday or a special event unless there were at least two Polaroid cameras whirring and spitting out instant pictures. If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, you probably owned one or more of these cameras, or at least your parents did. These cameras all spewed out little white-bordered pictures that developed themselves. I bet your mom’s photo album is stuffed full of these pictures right now.

If you like to the looks of these retro-style images these cameras produced, a company called PolaPros has 12 classic Polaroid instant camera models available for purchase.


Most of the cameras are refurbished units, but the company does offer some brand-new never sold vintage cameras still in the original packaging. Along with the cameras, the company also offers a wide range of accessories including lenses, camera cases, and external flash units.

All of this retro goodness will cost you though. Camera prices range from approximately $395 to $700(USD) – significantly more than their original $180 to $399 retail prices. If you have one of these Polaroid instant cameras lying around that doesn’t work, the company can also clean or fix it for you, with prices starting at about $80. One required accessory that I don’t see listed on the PolaPros site is film, which you can purchase from The Impossible Project for about $24 a pack.
