The Polaroid camera provides the instant gratification of both being able to see the photo somewhat immediately and being able to have the physical print. Originally, the polaroid camera meant that photographers didn’t have to worry about photo-lab technicians looking at photos, or having to go through the dark-room process themselves. The suspense of watching the film develop provides another layer of entertainment, due to the uncertainty of the final product. The polaroid has the potential to create a deeper connect between the photographer and his subjects, allowing the art to be shared somewhat instantaneously.
