Ask any experienced photographer what camera you should buy and you will almost certainly be cautioned that the equipment you use is not the most important thing about photography. Vision, passion, creativity, practice, experience and other qualities are far more important than the gear used to create an image.
So why a whole book dedicated to photography gear? Because the inescapable fact is, without cameras we are not photographers. It's certainly true that the creative vision and expertise of a photographer is more important, but the equipment gives us the ability to create our photos and opens up new creative possibilities that would not be possible otherwise.
The aim of this guide is to give you the tools to understand what your equipment can do for you, and help you to decide when it's time to add something to your kit. I will help you decide if you need new gear, which piece of gear you need, and once you have decided, how to find the best of many options available.

Sixty-five years ago, Polaroid’s instant film cameras hit the market, and the world embraced the fun new way of taking pictures with nearly immediate results. The company went on to produce dozens of unconventional camera models, stopping production of analog cameras and instant film in favor of digital models in 2008. Two years later, The Impossible Project picked up where Polaroid left off by releasing its own version of instant film, which created a new found interest in instant cameras. Take a look at some of Polaroid’s quirkier vintag film cameras by watching the following video:
Most people are familiar with the iconic Polaroid OneStep, which adorns Instagram’s logo. But the breadth of Polaroid camera models in existence is far wider than the uninitiated might imagine. These are just a few of the lesser-known but more intriguing camera models:
Polaroid 636 Talking Camera
The gimmicky Talking Camera came with pre-recorded messages that played on a speaker when the shutter was triggered. Different countries’ models came with different messages. The user could also record his or her own message.
The first Polaroid to boast an LCD viewfinder, the Image1200 offered a combination of digital features and analog operation. It had an optical viewfinder in addition to the LCD preview.
Mamiya Press or Polaroid SE 600
For those who wanted maximum control but instant results, the Polaroid SE 600 was the way to go. It was a fully manual camera with a high quality lens that resulted in great depth of field. Its quirk, aside from its weight, was its left-handed setup.
Polaroid Macro 5 SLR
Designed for medical purposes, this hefty camera featured five macro settings that were controlled with a dial at the top of the device. The focus mechanism used two lights, which the photographer had to bring together to create a sharp image.
Polaroid Big Shot
Famous as being Andy Warhol’s Polaroid of choice, the Big Shot was produced from 1971 to 1973. It was designed for portraits and featured a fixed lens; the photographer had to move about to focus the image.
Now that instant film cameras are largely a relic of the past, enthusiasts are all the more interested in getting their hands on old Polaroid cameras. Their many different styles and features make them attractive to collectors and hobbyists who yearn for the obscure. And there’s just something about seeing your image on paper within moments of depressing the shutter that would be a pity to lose completely to history. Which Polaroid camera of the past are you looking for?
