1970s Retro Instant CameraTech_PolaroidCamera_Wht_11x14 $33.00
Our '1970s Retro Instant Camera' print takes you back to the time when instant cameras were a hit because they offered immediate fun. It wasn't about image quality—it was about capturing the moment. As cameras and film quality improved, people tired of the poor image quality. By the 1990s, instant cameras faded away. Ironically, with the advent of social media and instant image sharing, they've made a comeback as party favourites and once again you'll find spinoffs of the Polaroid popping up.
The inspiration behind our 1970s Retro Instant Camera Art Print
This print is a nod to the golden era of the instant camera. It's kind of ironic that the low-quality instant cameras of the 1970s were largely responsible for piquing my interest in photography. It was cool to see my shots develop before my eyes. But I soon tired of the dingy and muddy prints and moved on to SLR cameras and 35mm film.
If you're a photography buff or collector or eclectic art, this print makes a great addition to your collection or home decor.
