Find your light with the reflective selfie mirror, and pick your pose with plenty of time, thanks to the self-timer. Here’s everything you need to know to capture the perfect selfie on the Polaroid Go camera.
To see how it’s done, watch a demonstration with our friend Ben from “In an Instant,” or read on for step-by-step tips and illustrations.
The viewfinder on the Polaroid Go camera has its own reflective selfie mirror. Place yourself in the middle of it and press the red shutter button to take the photo.
The photo will eject underneath the film shield. Leave it there for 5 seconds. Then gently lift the film shield and let it roll back in. Remove the photo.
Don’t shake the photo! Place your photo in a dark place or face down on a flat surface to shield it from light. Follow the development time on the film pack
If you want to take a picture of yourself that requires more distance than the human arm, there is a self timer built into the camera. Look through the viewfinder, then just long-press the flash button. When you're ready, press the red shutter button. The light will start blinking, which gives you ten seconds to get it together and put yourself in position.
