Polaroid Spectra 2 Instant Camera comes with 6 months warranty
Polaroid introduced the Spectra system of cameras in 1986. It was an all-new line of cameras, and had a corresponding new film. Spectra film (called 'Image' outside of North America) is different from 600 integral film in that it has a different image format: a rectangular 9.2 x 7.3cm rather than 600 film's square format. Spectra film is otherwise identical to 600 film - ISO speed, development method and operation remain identical. The Spectra range of cameras also sport better lenses on average than the 600-film range, with most of the models utilising an arc-shaped range of focusing lenses inside the body that swing across the exterior lens element to provide correct focusing, rather than adjusting the distance between internal lens elements. Spectra cameras are thought to take higher-quality pictures than a conventional 600 Polaroid camera, due to the camera's higher build quality and a proportionally larger print area.
"My love affair with Polaroid was quick and unsatisfying (most of the shots I took were pretty dark) until I discovered the charming flaws of the new Impossible Project films. Their story has been discussed countless places, so I won’t go into it, but they were the ones who introduced me to another format - the Polaroid Spectra System."
