When my partner’s dad saw my FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 camera, he went to his office and came back with a Polaroid EE44 camera. He said that I can use it because no one is using it anymore. I felt like I won the lottery or an auction because I love vintage stuff especially vintage gadgets/technologies.

Polaroid EE44 is an instant analog camera. The concept is simple. You take a photo, then the camera develops the photo right away. I’ve tried to “Google” this camera and I found out that there ain’t much information about it. I found out though that EE44 is from 1976.

Since this is an old camera, I had to study the controls first. The problem is no one has the instruction manual anymore so again I turned to the internet. Fortunately, I found some videos and more information about this analog camera. However, Polaroid has discontinued the production of the type 80 films (which I think is sad). But it’s not the end for the EE44. There are lots of tutorials online on how to use other films (like for instance Fujifilm 100) instead.

There was only one shot left in the camera so after learning the controls, I aimed at a beautiful scenery and pressed the button and hoped that I’d get a good picture. Then I waited for a couple of minutes and I pulled out the film. Unfortunately, there was no picture on the paper but only the chemicals from the paper. Then it occurred to me that I forgot to check the batteries! But even though I remember the batteries, I still won’t be able to change the batteries because that would mean opening the camera and exposing the remaining film.

I got disappointed because I lost my only shot but as I’ve said earlier, it’s not the end of the EE44. There are endless possibilities here, we just have to be creative and be patient with troubleshooting.
