To celebrate the city it calls home Retrospekt has launching a limited edition run of officially licensed Polaroid 600 instant film cameras featuring artwork inspired by the People’s Flag of Milwaukee.
Envisioned and assembled in Retrospekt’s Bay View workspace by a diverse team of proud Milwaukeans, each Milwaukee Flag camera features painstakingly refurbished parts from original Polaroid 600 instant film cameras made in the 1980s and 90s. These original parts are integrated into a completely new shell colored in the deep blue and bold yellow of the Milwaukee Flag. The restored internals and redesigned exterior provide a classic experience wrapped in a fresh, locally-flavored package fit for instant film novices and seasoned pros alike.
The heart of this camera comes from vintage Polaroid 600 cameras from the 1980s that have been refurbished, tested and are ready for another generation of photo taking. All you need is a pack of Polaroid 600 film and this camera is ready to shoot!
This is a new custom camera built from refurbished, vintage Polaroid internal components housed in a newly-molded exterior — designed and built by Retrospekt and officially licensed by Polaroid.
