A complete waste of money

 

I bought this for Christmas my 14-year-old daughter. It was stylish and compact, and seemed like a good fit for her iPod lifestyle. I can't return it fast enough. There was only a quick reference guide for the instructions, and they were poor. The full...

Stylish and compact

Forget the flash; SW wouldn't load on 98SE

Polaroid Won't Stand Behind a BAD Product

 

I openned the camera out of the box, and charged it as the instructions said. The camera has absolutely no life. It won't turn on, it won't do anything. I contacted Polaroid about fixing it, and everything is at my expense. I haven't even owned the...

I can't even make it work

The camera never worked and I have to pay to get it fixed

Simply Awful!

 

Okay, I had my previous camera stolen, so while i was waiting for the insurance money to come through and saw this for £80 (having read some of the previous reviews from US writers I am some what disheartened to find they had paid $50 for this...

The Magic of Polaroid

 

It is unfortunate that it comes only ten a pack because Polaroid Instant film is wonderful in that the pictures are clear with vivid colors. High quality with the mystery that comes with Polaroids makes for a great buy!
