JUST GO WITH IT Win a Polaroid Go camera, where portability meets creativity

longer than the human arm, there is a self-timer. Holding the flash button for two seconds sets the timer and gives ten seconds to get set before the shot. Double exposure maximises creative potential, as you can take two photographs and overlay them in one image. The Go comes with shutter speed of 1/250-1sec, aperture of f/12 and f/52, and focal length of 51.1mm. A USB charging cable, wrist strap, quick-start guide and safety booklet accompany the camera in its box. The Polaroid Go is a miniature marvel – and we’re giving away a cool white version as part of our 100th issue competition

POLAROID, A WELL-RESPECTED name in film cameras, has widened its reach with the Polaroid Go white. In a brand-new format, it is the bite-size sibling of the i-Type. Portability is impressive, measuring

no bigger than an apple. Fit in a pocket, wear around your neck or hold in hand. This pocket rocket requires film to match. Loading it is simple – just align the yellow arrows and slot into place. A built-in film shield protects from light exposure when ejecting from the camera. Unlike the 1980s, don’t shake your Polaroid when freshly printed. According to experts, it’s best to wait 15 minutes for development. Like disposable cameras, the Go tells you how many shots you have remaining on an LED screen. Prepare to ‘vogue’ with selfie mode. The viewfinder doubles up as a handy mirror, so you can fix your hair before the shutter goes off! For selfies requiring distance
