Cameras Need TLC Too! FPP Polaroid 225 Camera Giveaway!

This Polaroid 225 Automatic “Pack Film” Land Camera (pictured above) was purchased on e-bay. It’s a “classic” folding instant film camera that was built in 1968. Even though Polaroid Corporation stopped producing film in 2008, Fujifilm still makes both color and BW film for this camera.

The e-bayer who sold it to me claimed to be the original owner and advertised it as the Polaroid Countdown 70! What arrived was a grimy, abused Polaroid 225 Land Camera in desperate need of some care. The original battery was corrosion free and still holding a charge. With some "spit and polish" I was able to clean it up and give it a spin.

It was originally planned as a FPP give-away camera. Now that I’m confident it’s operational, I’m offering it up. It's hardly brand new but is “the” perfect camera for a curious film shooter who has never shot with a Polaroid Pack camera.

This giveaway already happened, but check out the podcast for current giveaways.

The Polaroid 225 camera uses both Fujifilm FP-100c (color) or FP-3000b (BW) film.
