Polaroid & Retrospekt Release Limited-Edition Vintage Polaroid Instant Film Camera
As part of their latest collaboration, Polaroid and Retrospekt are launching a new artist-led design for their refurbished Polaroid instant cameras line, with an exterior featuring graphics and colors by Killer Acid. Killer Acid, based out of Santa Cruz, Calif., specializes in screen prints, paintings, T-shirts, comics and psychedelic ephemera. The style is a blend of head shop and punk rock.
The cameras, built by Retrospekt — the official Polaroid licensee working with the brand to revive vintage analog cameras – feature refurbished internal parts from vintage Polaroid 600 instant cameras made in the ’80s and ’90s. The vintage components inside every camera are restored to work like new, according to the announcement. Then these original parts are wrapped into freshly molded plastic exteriors featuring exclusive Killer Acid coloring and graphics. Each camera comes with two additional sticker sheets created by Corradetti specifically for the collaboration that feature additional illustrations,
Complementing the camera launch is a special run of Polaroid T-shirts and stickers featuring a Killer-Acid-esque take on the classic Polaroid 600 camera model.
The camera and T-shirt are available directly from Retrospekt and Killer Acid, as well as through select retailers.
