My photos are over or under-exposed with the flash

Your Polaroid camera has an built-in photocell that will calculate the exposure time. At low light levels, always make sure to use a flash or rest the camera on a steady surface while shooting.

 

The built-in flash on Polaroid cameras are usually only effective in a range of 1 to 2.5 meters (3.3 – 8.2 ft).

 

Make sure that the lighten/darken wheel or slider of your camera is adjusted to the middle position.

 

  • Correct distance for the use of the flash

 

 

 

  • Shooting too close with the flash will result over-exposed images

 

 

 

  • Shooting too far with the flash will result under-exposed images

 

 

 

  • Shooting a selfie in a mirror won’t be very effective with the flash!
