Pack Polaroid: Adventures Through the Grand Canyon

By Polaroid Aug 7, 2019

In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Grand Canyon National Park, Retrospekt and the Parks Project teamed up to release a limited edition, refurbished Polaroid 600 analog instant camera. The camera features artwork inspired by the park’s centennial – and proceeds from the camera go toward the Grand Canyon Conservancy, which is dedicated to providing premier guided educational programs about the natural and cultural history of the region.

And what better place to explore with the Grand Canyon Polaroid camera in tow than the stunning, awe-inspiring Grand Canyon itself?

The Grand Canyon – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World – is easily one of the most captivating natural land formations in the world. Its beauty and vastness can be breathtaking and overwhelming. And getting out to see it in person is nothing less than spectacular.

Whether it’s a stop along the South Rim or a hike down to the Colorado River, there are 227 miles of the canyon to explore – and the view will never disappoint, no matter what part you’re visiting.

And while it’s hard to truly capture the essence of the Grand Canyon in a photograph, having a Polaroid camera that commemorates the canyon is not only meaningful, but also nostalgic, and it’s the perfect way to document your trip. It captures what you’re feeling while you’re overlooking this majestic natural wonder – the history, the beauty, the sentiment.

The best part of the Grand Canyon Polaroid instant camera is that the camera doesn’t have a battery (the battery is inside each film pack!), meaning that you can spend the whole day exploring and taking pictures of the canyon, without having to worry about your battery life.

Polaroid cameras allow you to capture and share memories instantly. Give photos to friends that are alongside you in your adventure or show them to your family after you return home from your trip. Each Polaroid print is unique – a specific photo can never be captured and created in the same exact way a second time. Not only are you experiencing a one-of-a-kind natural wonder, but you’re capturing it in a one-of-a-kind way.
