Milwaukee, WI—To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Grand Canyon National Park, custom Polaroid analog camera maker Retrospekt teamed up with Parks Project and the Grand Canyon Conservancy. The result is the Polaroid 600 Grand Canyon, a limited edition run of the Polaroid 600 instant analog camera that features artwork inspired by the park’s centennial.
The special edition film camera is available July 2, 2019 exclusively through Parks Project. Moreover, the analog camera lets lovers of the outdoors and photography experience the magic of instant film while supporting conservation in our national parks.
Besides the Parks Project’s commitment to donate part of every sale to America’s national parks, Retrospekt will give an additional 5% from the sale of each camera to the Grand Canyon Conservancy. As the official nonprofit partner of Grand Canyon National Park, the Grand Canyon Conservancy provides guided educational programs about the natural and cultural history of the region.

An official Polaroid licensed product, the new instant film camera uses refurbished vintage Polaroid 600 camera parts. Moreover, they are housed in a redesigned body that commemorates one of our country’s most iconic geological treasures.
The camera features a fixed-focus lens (4 feet–infinity); a built-in flash; as well as an exposure compensation slider. No battery is required as the battery is inside each Polaroid 600 film pack. In addition, the camera sports a built-in neck strap.
