Polaroid Pop ShotsEdit

This was the world's first ever single-use instant camera. It was "disposable" but used Captiva 500 instant film. These are now rare, since used examples were disposed of.

  • Lens: unknown (probably single-element plastic with a focal length of less than 100mm).
  • Shutter: electronic.
  • Fixed focus.
  • Built-in electronic flash. (Switched on/off manually, but flash exposure appears to be automatic (quenched when correct exposure time is achieved).
  • Flash/Daylight switch also changes the lens aperture via a simple stop.
  • Manual print ejection via a pull-ring at the side of the camera.
  • Camera was not intended for user reloading, but was packaged with a prepaid mailer (USA) for return to Polaroid for recycling. Customer was sent a refund coupon in exchange for the returned camera. European users were directed to return the camera to their local dealer, for which Polaroid would make a small contribution to a charity.
