Polaroid black and white test

9 December 2022

I have to admit to being a bit disappointed with my trial of the Polaroid Now+ camera.

I wasn't expecting pin-sharp perfection with its plastic lens, but, claiming to have autofocus, I was expecting something a little sharper, and a bit more contrasty with black and white film.

An 8-shot pack currently sells for £18 on Amazon in the UK, meaning every time you press the red button, it costs £2.25.

I'm really pleased that Polaroid are still around and making cameras and film, but I can't help but wish they would release a flagship camera, with a nice, sharp, glass lens and accurate focus.
