The Polaroid Spirit 600 CL camera dates from the 1980s and used Polaroid 600 colour film. A battery built into the film pack powered both the camera and the electronic flash. The flash was designed to be used with every photograph taken, either indoors or outside, although it could be overridden by pressing the red “non-flash button” on the front of the camera. In 2008 Polaroid discontinued Type 600 film, however a new company, initially named The Impossible Project, was formed and, using the original Polaroid plant and machinery, they reinvented and relaunched Polaroid’s 600 and SX-70 films.
