Here’s everything you need to know to capture the perfect first photo on the Polaroid x Keith Haring Now camera.
In the frame or outside the lines
Put your eye to the viewfinder to compose your shot. The camera uses autofocus – just make sure you are at least 55cm (1.8ft) from your subject. When you’ve got your creative vision locked in, keep the camera steady and press the shutter button to capture.
Make it flashy
Want to light up the contours and lines of your subject? Use the flash to take your best shots. The flash triggers by default, but you can press the flash button on the back panel once to turn it off. Make sure the sun is behind you for best results.
Develop your talent
Your photo will eject under the film shield. Leave it a few seconds, then lift the shield and let it roll back in the camera. Remove the photo and place it face down to develop. Check the film pack for developing times, and don’t shake your photos! That’s a myth.
Here’s Hatti, our in-house photographer, to take you through every feature.
Timeless photos with self‑timer
Tap the self-timer button once to light up the LED orange. Line up the shot and press the shutter button. Is it blinking? You have 9 seconds to get in the frame and strike your pose.
Double exposure, more creativity
Create without limits, using the double-exposure feature. Tap the self-timer button twice for double exposure mode. The display will indicate ‘1’ until the first shot is taken, then ‘2’ until the second shot.
Recharge your creative battery
Artists sleep too. When you’re done shooting, just tap the ON | OFF button for ½ a second. Store unopened film in the fridge for best results.
“It wouldn’t matter if you lived until you were seventy-five. There would still be new ideas. There would still be things that you wished you would have accomplished. You could work for several lifetimes. If I could clone myself, there would still be too much work to do — even if there were five of me. And there are no regrets.”
