After my newest and favorite Polaroid started failing me, I went online in search of another 1200si. Sadly I couldn't find one. Because they're brilliant and no one wants to sell theirs.

 

So I bid on a Spectra System that was on eBay for $5.

 

$5!!!

 

And then I searched longer and found another one in better shape with all the toys (remote control and filters) for $19.

 

$19!!!

 

So I bid on it too.

And I won both.

I got two Spectra System cameras for $24. People are dumping their cameras.

 

I got the first one yesterday. It came in a cheap vinyl case and smelled like my grandpa. AND it had a cartridge of film in it. Who knows how long it's been in there. But this was the result.

 

I think it's time for me to stop buying anything Polaroid. I'm done.

 

[Unless I can get my hands on an Onyx. But then that's it for me. Really.]
