When was the last time you printed a photo you could hold in your hand, instead of just posting one to Facebook?
Polaroid cameras have made a comeback in recent years, offering a kitschy, physical, and instant memento—a refreshing alternative to taking a million selfies on your iPhone. And thanks to an inventive collaboration between the Parks Project and Retrospekt, you can now own the perfect Polaroid Camera for your next national park vacation.
The Grand Canyon Centennial Polaroid Camera Offers Vintage Vacation Vibes
The Parks Project, known for their apparel partnerships that benefit public lands, and retro-themed electronics company, Retrospekt, have teamed up for a limited edition Polaroid Camera that honors the Grand Canyon National Park Centennial this year. The cameras, available as of July 2, 2019 exclusively through Parks Project, feature the specs of the vintage Polaroid 600 camera, housed in a body designed to pay homage to the Grand Canyon’s charm.
The Parks Project’s mission centers around giving back to public lands—they have partnerships with over 30 parks conservancies to raise money for underfunded projects, like planting native species in the Joshua Tree National Park nursery and trail restoration in Muir Woods. With that, Retrospekt also plans to donate five percent of the proceeds from the sale of this camera directly to the Grand Canyon Conservancy.
The limited run of cameras will be available until sold out from the Parks Project website at $160.
