my boyfriend has just brought me a polaroid izone, as it is so much smaller than my polaroid 600, so a little more handy and less embarrasing to carry around!
i have just finished my first 12 pictures that came with the camera, im i think i need to go on a course to learn how to pull out the pictures without causing finger print marks on them.
It is very simple to use the camera, just select the right setting for the environment you are in, indoors, outside in bright weather, and a setting for cloudy weather but i tend not to use this setting as it is abit in between!The button you use to select the apropriate setting is the same you use to take the photo, so it isn't full of lots of strange buttons!
I like the fact the the camera is simple to use and isnt flooded with alot of functions you never really use. I has everything on there to allow you to take a decent picture!
As i mentioned before i dont quite have the nack of ripping the photos out of the camera, you seem to have to pull really hard on the tab to release the photo, i normally end up stopping pulling the tab before the photo is fully removed causing brown spots on the picture, not a very good look.however on the end of each tab it tells you what number picture you are on, relating to how many you have left which is handy.
My i-zone came with 12 pictures and i have only managed to produce 1 picture from it, some have come out yellow others black, but i think this is beacause of my picture taking skills and not the camera. As the range on the camera is 2-8 feet i think i am taking the pictures too close!
All in all it is a good compact instant camera, i wouldnt recomend it as a camera to take all your photos on, it is just designed with fun in mind i think and it certainly ful-fills this purpose. Being so small and compact it can be used in almost any environment. Well done polaroid another great instant camera!
The films are about £9 for two packs of 12 photos, which may seem alot but if you take into account the fact that the pictures are instant, and the camera is so handy i think that they do work out to be good value for money!
