For those times that call for a photo on the spot, the Polaroid Spectra 1200i Instant Camera will more than fit the bill. Whether you need an instant photo for fun, insurance claims, or other documentation purposes, this camera will become your friend for life. Just aim and shoot, and the Spectra 1200i will do the rest, giving you a full-color image in a matter of seconds.
An automatic 10-zone focus means that your shots will always be crisp and clear, and a built-in flash with a range of two to 15 feet is excellent for low-light conditions, but also compensates for shadows in bright-light conditions. The camera powers up in a mere six seconds, with a rapid recharge indicator telling you when you can snap the next shot.
The Spectra 1200i relies on a fully automatic, 125-millimeter, three-element lens with 10-zone Quintic that provides a focal distance from two feet to infinity. (An optional close-up accessory that's sold separately reduces the focal distance to 10 inches.) With an aperture of f10 to f45, and a shutter speed range of 1/245 to 2.8 seconds, the Spectra 1200i is versatile enough to meet a wide array of your photographic needs.
Polaroid has made its reputation over the years by providing photographers with fun, well-built cameras with user-friendly designs, and this camera certainly extends that reputation. Display features such as a frame indicator shows how many pictures are left in the film pack, an easy-to-read control panel, and a lighten/darken exposure control mean that you will always be prepared for your next shot. The camera also includes a tripod socket, adjustable hand strap, and a next strap connector. At 6.82 x 3.07 x 5.46 inches (W x H x D), the Spectra 1200i is compact enough to join you on your travels. Powered by the battery included with the film packs, the Spectra 1200i works with Polaroid Spectra, 1200, Image, and 990 films.
