Recently, I bought my first ever pack camera. I have used regular Polaroid cameras, but the Polaroid 450 was new to me. At first I was worried that it wasn’t working because an entire pack of film didn’t develop, that’s when I discovered the true reason that it wouldn’t take a photo. The battery was modded to work with 123 type batteries, so a battery was taped into the compartment and the white end wasn’t even connected. I have to hold the wired against the opposing ends of the battery to get a charge from it, but it works! Have a look at how the photos started, and to where they are at the more I used the camera. I think I have the hang of it now.
I used Fuji FP-100c film in the camera and discovered pretty fast that indoor photos need to be done in really good light or using a tripod. I know, I know…that’s just common sense. I don’t like to use a flash when I take a photo, instead I like to use natural light if possible, like in the last photo. Overall, I am enjoying this camera a lot, flaws and all!
