|Polaroid 600 BE|
by mr. wood.
The One Step Flash Close Up was a model in the second wave of Polaroid's 600-series. Not only did it have an integral flash like the square-cornered Polaroid One Step Flash, but it also had a close-up lens. This consisted of a small piece of transparent plastic that slid in front of the main lens to enable closer focusing.
- Lens: 116mm, f/11, Single-element plastic.
- Fixed focus (sharpest at 4-5 feet), but with sliding close-up attachment.
- Shutter: electronic; automatic speed between 1/4-1/200 sec.
- Integral auto flash that works in low light but cannot be forced on or off.
- Polaroid's Light Management System (the darken/lighten exposure correction slider).
