Polaroid Impulse Portrait
Name: Polaroid Impulse Portrait
Art: Instant camera
Type of Film: Typ 600
Flash / Flash connection: Built-in flash
It is designed for the Polaroid 600 format and is very similar to the “normal “Impulse. As the name suggests, it is very well suited for portrait photography. For this purpose, it has a switchable close-up lens.
The design of this camera is very different from most other 600 format instant cameras. The camera does not fold up and is therefore strongly reminiscent of the SX-70 box cameras (e.g. Polaroid 1000).
The battery of the Polaroid Impulse, which supplies the camera with power, is located in the film cassette. With a film change, therefore, a battery change is performed at the same time. The instant camera does not need additional batteries.

Features common to all Impulse fixed-focus models are:
Single element plastic lens with fixed aperture (116mm, f9)
1.2 m (4 ft) minimum focus distance.
Exposure compensation controls below the lens.
Flash fires for every shot; cannot be user-controlled.
The Impulse Portrait model adds a simple plastic “close-up” lens for focussing between 0.6 and 1.2 meters (2 to 4 feet), but it lacks sharpness.
