Picture Quality (Instant Pictures)

The First Picture is always blank and should be expected and is actually the seal that removed from the film and should be kept in mind when using the camera for the first time or after a new film is inserted into the camera.Every picture after this though will be regular pictures, also note that the film has an expiry date and should be used before the date indicated on the box.

When taking shots be sure to adjust your pictures slightly to the left to compensate for the Camera lens that off towards that position compared to the viewfinder that you look through. After taking a picture just like an old school  Polaroid picture it will take a little while for the image to develop but when finished you will have a clear and nice picture that about the size of a credit card. As long as you take a picture a normal distance from a subject pictures turn out very clear with good color with plenty of detail, closer shots can however be a bit blurry but if you maintain a decent distance shots are good and this is mainly because there is no auto focus built into this camera.
