Shooting in daylight / shooting at night

All Polaroid® cameras offer the possibility to create beautiful images in both daylight and night-time situations, inside or outside. What is important is to recognise the different environments and take the appropriate corrective actions. Here are a few rules and guidelines to keep in mind to ensure best results. 

Polaroid® 600 & Impossible I-1 Cameras: When shooting outside, you can shoot with or without flash. When shooting inside and/or at night, always use the built-in flash.

Polaroid® SX-70 Cameras: When shooting outside, you can shoot with or without flash. When shooting inside, ensure that you are close to a window and that there is a lot of light. When shooting at night, a tripod or an additional flash bar are mandatory. The sensitivity of this film-type is significantly less than that of other Impossible films and therefore requires more light.

Polaroid® Image/Spectra Cameras: When shooting outside, you can shoot with or without flash. When shooting inside, ensure that you are close to a window and that there is a lot of light. When shooting at night, always use the built-in flash.

Polaroid® SLR 680 Cameras: When shooting outside, you can shoot with or without flash. When shooting inside, ensure that you are close to a window and that there is a lot of light. When shooting at night, always use the built-in flash.
