Instant Artifact: The Big Shot

Click image to read more   "This is a fun item: the  Polaroid Big Shot , produced from 1971 to 1973. It’s one of the cheapest cameras Polaroid ever sold (setting aside some junk it produced during the bad years at the end), one of the strangest-looking, and arguably among the most fun. Plastic lens, socket and diffuser for Magicubes, and a little timer on the back that buzzes as it counts down 60 seconds’ development. Priced at $19.95 retail, and probably sold for about fifteen bucks at K-mart."  BY   BONANOS   /  POLAROIDLAND
