Polaroid Popshots

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Polaroid launched since the end of the Nineties, a new (not as much as that) concept of photo camera. It is about disposable reusable. Since it is with instantaneous development, contrary to disposable usual, the laboratories cannot recover them and to send them in a processing circuit during the development of film. Polaroid thus requires of its user to return it, without expenses, by the post office with a service which will be given the responsability to reload it made of film. In exchange, the user will receive a reduction voucher on the next one. It is what Polaroid in the USA announces.

In Europe, for each returned camera, Polaroid commits itself pouring one Euro at the committee of the United Nations of fight against Sida (Bravo!)

The body has a very particular design, in a preoccupation with an ergonomics. Result, that resembles a little the plunging saucer of Cdt Cousteau. There is no Focusing. Almost all is made of plastic, including the lens. It seems that the setting shutter speed is automatic.
