Polaroid is re-releasing one of their iconic cameras, because our love for the ’90s knows no bounds

Remember when Outkast sang “shake it like a Polaroid picture” back in 2003? Now, you’ll appreciate that memorable command on a new level. Because Polaroid is re-releasing an iconic ’90s camera. That’s right, the Polaroid 600 Camera is back, and it’s truly better than ever.

The Polaroid Originals 96 Cam pays homage to the camera of the decade that everyone still obsesses over and wishes to re-live. Now, with the instant camera that looks exactly like one of the brightly-colored windbreakers that you wore as a kid, you can.

The brand has previously tried to revamp its cameras to fit in with the modern age, what with the Polaroid Pop Camera that drew inspiration from Snapchat. But now, the iconic brand seems to have come to their senses and realized that what people really want isn’t some technologically advanced camera of 2018. We want the camera of the ’90s. (We want everything from the ’90s.)

Like the ’90s, however, the Polaroid 96 Cam won’t last forever. The site selling them warns that they’re “available in strictly limited quantities,” so you’d better act quickly if you want one. Which, once you see the bright colors of both the Jazz Red and Fresh Blue designs, you definitely will. Let’s not forget the best part of these cameras, which is that they immediately print out your photo in a perfectly retro style.

Check out the Jazz Red style and tell us this isn’t the greatest thing EVER.

According to the Polaroid Originals Instagram, Baddie Winkle is a big fan.


And check out the view of the camera from the back — it’s a view all ’90s kids will remember.


And the Fresh blue style couldn’t be more perfect too.


Seriously, have you ever seen anything cooler?

Both cameras cost $189.99, and their film costs $55.

The cameras may not be available forever, but the photographs you take with them will.

Not only can you buy both the camera and film on the Polaroid Originals site, but these super fly cameras will also be sold by Urban Outfitters.


Now, go forth and purchase, ’90s kids!
