I found a polaroid 600 land camera in a charity shop for £1, so naturally I had to get it. I also bought an Olympus Trip (also £1) you have to love charity shops!

It's brilliant that 600 film is being made again, and I love the stuff that the people at The Impossible Project are doing for analogue photography.


The film works out about £2 per shot though so won't be using it too much.... Plus I didn't oder the gold version, I got sent the wrong one but couldn't hang around to get it changed, turns out I quite like it.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!

    Lucky you! I can't find cameras for £1 anymore at the charity shops near me (...but they seem to sell plenty of fully automatic 35mm cameras from the 80's to 90s that are just junk, for more than what they are worth).
