What's the "buzz" about the Polaroid 420? It's FPP's Most Popular Polaroid since 2011! Why's that? It's the go-to Automatic Land Camera for FPP co-host Mat Marrash and Ontario-based Polaroid photographer April-Lea Hutchinson! With its plastic lens, lightweight body and durability, what's not to love!
