The Polaroid camera that most people remember is the instant camera. These first made their appearance on the market in 1948 and remained their flagship camera until 2008. Unlike other film cameras that required film processing in order to create prints, the instant camera produced a picture in a matter of seconds. The special film developed immediately after the photographer snapped the shot.
Polaroid revolutionised photography with the introduction of instant cameras, but they were not the only cameras produced by the company. Polaroid also made a number of 35 mm models and camcorders. As popularity for digital photography grew, Polaroid moved away from film and introduced digital cameras into its lineup. From vintage film cameras to high definition digital cameras, Polaroid has a large selection to choose from.
