The Polaroid Supercolor 635CL is definitely an eyecatcher. I’ve got exactly 4 of her since they are on sale at every flea market for about 1 to 4 euros. If your lucky you’ll get one with an old film inside, with some free shots. These old photos are often in a yellow, brown hue and full of bubbles. If you’re unlucky the development paste is dried.
The camera has a built-in “close up” lens for subjects less than 1.2m away. There’s also a tripod socket which i never used. The build-in flash is flashing with every shot. I don’t like that much, so i broke down the flash of one camera by violence. And i almost cut my fingers with a sharp piece of plastic. Later i recognized that i can stick some black electric tape over the flash.
Anyway, i love shooting with that camera. It’s easy to handle, and the exposure meter helps me with “shots from the hip”. I also like the lo-fi look of the pictures with light vignetting. The most of the pictures in the gallery are from 2008. I took the camera along on my trips to Tokyo, Paris and the Melt!-Festival. There also 3 pictures of 2009 from Copenhagen.
