Rare Polaroids....

I don't know about you but my camera collection is getting a little out of hand. Ive got some random cameras scattered amongst my book shelves that range from Eastman Kodak circa 1908 right through to Polaroid in 1980...

Two of my favorite models would have to be the swingers from the 60s and the SX70s from the 70s but still I cant go past the bright and wacky joy of the special editions from the 1980s and even 90s (yes that was 20 years ago now)... I thought I was doing OK with my red cool cam, taz loony toon Polaroid, job pro and amigo 610 until i came across this guy who has over 930 Polaroid cameras in his collection!

While I don't ever think I'll obtain that many, as my boyfriend would most likely leave me, I am still constantly on the hunt for another weirdly wonderful and wonderfully weird Polaroid for my collection, Ive come across a McDonald's Polaroid before but they are just so expensive, hows a girl supposed to eat AND feed her Polaroid addiction i ask you?

The main models that seem to be out there for sale are of the barbie, cool cam variety - hell I've even seen a clear one once, I'm talking totally transparent, it was a glorious thing of beauty. I would love to hear about any crazy Polaroid models you have come across in your travels...

Oh and if you are looking to add to your own collection there are some great ones going on EBay here, here, here and here!
