Description:

This 600 camera is fixed focus (although it tricked me for some time) and has control over flash. Since Polaroid likes to reuse names, be careful not to confuse this 600 camera with the iconic polaroid one step  that was produced decades before.

The Polaroid OneStep express is a tough, plastic-y camera. It has some nice features, such as being able to shut the front side to protect the lens when not in use and a 

Equiped with a sturdy handle at the side.

Review:

The Polaroid OneStep Closeup is a competent, if uninspiring camera. It has some nice features, such as being able to shut the front side to protect the lens when not in use and the ability to fire without flash. However, don’t go out of your way to pick up this model for its incompetent ‘closeup’ feature, it’s a lousy substitute for autofocus.

Since it is a 600 model camera, it works with expired Polaroid 600 film, as well as Polaroid Originals’ new 600 type film.

The lens on this camera is perfectly serviceable, but don’t even bother with the ‘closeup’ lens feature. If you slide over the focusing dial to close up, a piece of plastic will appear in front of your lens. Unless you want everything to be blurry, this plastic is useless. Just keep the focus over to the mountain side and don’t bother with macro with this camera.

Unlike some older Polaroid cameras, it doesn’t focus through sonar. In fact, despite what I used to think earlier, it doesn’t autofocus at all. Typically this isn’t a problem, but it can create softer results than sonar autofocus cameras.
