Scope and content

Item is a Polaroid instant camera, with a plastic body, that originally retailed for $99.95 and now usually sells for around $10. This camera is based on the original I-Zone. This camera was marketed towards younger users and as a result, was quite easy to use. It had three aperture settings, selected by a lever that pointed to a picture representing when each setting would be appropriate, be it indoors, outdoors on a sunny day, or outdoors on a cloudy day. After the photo was captured, the lever would revert to the off position to save power. There is also a built in automatic flash unit that works on an as needed basis. Lens is a 7mm single-element plastic lens with a fixed focus, shutter is mechanical with a single-speed, there is 1MB flash RAM for memory, which can store a maximum of 18 pictures, and the viewfinder is optical only. Serial number is K120DC.
