  • Monday, July 1, 2019

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Grand Canyon National Park, custom Polaroid analog camera creator Retrospekt has teamed up with Parks Project and the Grand Canyon Conservancy to release a limited edition run of Polaroid 600 instant analog cameras featuring artwork inspired by the park’s centennial.

An official Polaroid licensed product, the Grand Canyon Polaroid instant analog camera features painstakingly refurbished vintage Polaroid 600 camera parts housed in a redesigned body that commemorates one of our country’s most iconic geological features. Available July 2, 2019 exclusively through Parks Project, the Grand Canyon camera lets lovers of the outdoors and photography alike experience the magic of instant film while supporting conservation and educational programs in our national parks.

On top of Parks Project’s lasting commitment to donate part of every sale to America’s national parks, Retrospekt will give an additional 5% from the sale of each camera directly to the Grand Canyon Conservancy. As the official nonprofit partner of Grand Canyon National Park, the Grand Canyon Conservancy is dedicated to providing premier guided educational programs about the natural and cultural history of the region.

The camera can be purchased for $160 directly through Parks Project at: https://www.parksproject.us/grand-canyon-polaroid
