Great depending on what you're using it for,

This review is from: Polaroid One Instant Camera (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Sure, the picture quality isn't nearly as good as a 35mm. Sure, the film is expensive and you only get ten exposures.
However, it's an INSTANT CAMERA. They're not known for their superior picture clarity and amazing color. If that's what you're looking for, then don't buy this camera.
I don't know a lot about cameras. I don't know anything about Polaroid and the technology behind the Polaroid One, but I can tell you that I am 100% pleased with this camera as it fits my needs perfectly. I'm using it to take a photograph every day of my 15 month old son to send to my husband who is doing a year long tour in Iraq.
The camera is uncomplicated, relatively compact, and the film loads easily. The picture quality is better than what I remember from my childhood in the 70s, but not much. (Again, I'm not complaining. I expected this. The purpose for stating that is so others will not expect too much.)
If you're buying it for a specific purpose and not to be your primary camera, then you'll be 110% satisfied. I am.
