kijiji got me looking at vintage cameras and i'm annoyed because i'm genuinely interested but i'm broke
@IceWolf polaroid cameras use picture packs that are basically cartridges with 8 instant pictures in them, and a battery since the camera itself doesn't have one
they cost like $30 each though, and in getting only 8 pictures that you need to be able to take clearly and at a good angle and with good lighting on the first try... it's quite pricey compared to digital, or standard roll film cameras even
@IceWolf probably because it was one less thing to keep track of
they would probably require you to use disposable batteries in a camera back then if any, so just having to put in a picture pack and know you'll have more than enough power to take all 8 pictures was pretty convenient i imagine
