Polaroid Impulse Portrait

This camera we picked up at a garage sale in Marseilles, IL with some 600 film (original!) for around $10 all together.

The difference between the Impulse Portrait and the Impulse is the small focus selector switch near the top, which allows the user to have slightly more control over the picture they're taking.

Unlike most I've seen, this one lacks the "Portrait" branding on the front fascia, possibly an early model? A repair? Who knows!

Camera History Project

This website is the culmination of years of antiquing. My wife and I enjoyed travelling around the United States, stopping at various antique shops and finding different cameras. Since 2012, we have collected hundreds of cameras, and there are some that we have, but that have not made it online yet. When the real world slows down, we plan to resume our hobby! Feel free to check out our online collection, and using the comment system, let us know which you've had and which is your favorite!
