In the past couple years, styles and items that were once popular in previous decades have made a comeback. This generation has a knack for looking back on things from our childhood with a strong sense of nostalgia and happiness, and that I think has led to certain items coming back "into style". The item that I'm the most excited about is the Polaroid camera .
One of my favorites hobbies is photography. I've always loved capturing fun memories on camera and looking back on them in the future. When I received a Polaroid camera for Christmas this year, I couldn't contain my excitement. If you're at all into photography like I am, then I suggest you go out and get one of these cameras as soon as you can!
Why a Polaroid camera? Good question. It's not that I don't enjoy using other kinds of cameras. I often even use just my smartphone to take great pictures. What's cool about this camera is the shear fun of it. It's perfect for days when you hang out with friends, explore a new city or place, or have a party to go to. They are super lightweight (at least mine is) and they are easy to carry with you wherever you go. The pictures you take become instant keepsakes of fun times and memorable moments with people you love.
However, the main reason I love my Polaroid is the candidness behind them. Unlike smartphones and digital cameras, there's no redo option. If the picture turns out "bad" you won't be able to retake that picture again. But that's the fun of it. Every photo is unique, and none are completely perfect. It gives each picture its own little flare and style, and it makes certain moments that much more memorable. Sure, the film can be a little expensive and you only get a certain amount of photos in a pack of film. I think it is completely worth it, and I'm sure many of you would feel that way too!
While there are many more fads and styles that have come back from previous decades that are probably much less expensive and easy to buy, I really think that a Polaroid camera is something that anyone could buy and enjoy. It also why I am using this item as my Weekly Favorite! It's a great gift or a good item to splurge a little money on. You won't be disappointed!
