Polaroid Big shot

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Surprising camera, especially if in more one offers it to you the evening of your marriage in full banquet.

Big Shot is really big to make a portrait. It is about a rangefinder camera WITHOUT focusing. In other words, it is necessary to move with the camera to find the ideal distance (approximately a meter). The finder is above the handle (on the right) and rangefinder window is in bottom of this handle. The flash is a magicube whose lens of Fresnel ensures the diffusion. The magicube turns after each photograph and the camera is blocked when the four faces of the flash are roasted.
The lens is a simple meniscus : a focal length of 220 mm the aperture F:29 makes essential the use of the magicube for all the photographs. The shutter has only the 1/60s.
Left in 1972, this camera was worth less than 180 francs.
The film usable was Polacolor 108.
