This camera has become my main workhorse. I’ve been using it for everything. Portraits, street work, events, landscapes and so much more.
It is one of my all time favourite pieces from my collection, which is a good thing considering how much effort is required to use it.
Polaroid 600 Extreme
UPDATED POST: this first went live YEARS ago so please excuse the incredibly basic review format
There are more varieties of Polaroid 600 cameras out there than there’s been iPhone updates – it would be ridiculous of me to review every single one. However, you will see more Polaroid reviews from me in future, if I find something that breaks the convention.
I’ve been in two minds about posting these images. But I feel that it’s even more important to keep making work during times like these. It’s our responsibility as photographers to keep working and creating even with the lockdown in place.
With all the downtime I’ve been landed with as a result of Covid-19, I ended up shooting and processing my remaining rolls of Kodak TMAX.
These images were shot using a Nikonos IV-A and Zorki 4 during the first 2 weeks of lockdown. Some images taken in Cardiff in the week before the lockdown came into effect, and the latter shot where I live in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan.
Despite the past month being the warmest of the year, the whole world has seemed cold. Seeing the social distancing measures in place as people queue up for supplies, or seeing near deserted beaches at Barry Island.
Places such as this rely on tourist trade as a source of income. It was sobering to have the sun beating down on your back while every shop on the waterfront had closed shutters and empty displays. The rides have not moved an inch in over a month.

Here for a good time, not a long time!
I’ve always been (imo understandably) apprehensive about disposable /single use cameras. The gamble for me was never usually worth it, especially with the extensive collection of cameras… Read more “Here for a good time, not a long time!”
