The camera does not have a zoom but there is a close up self portrait lens that is included that you can snap on to the lens when it turns on and the lens extends out. I really cannot tell the difference so I never use it. But this is a really fun camera and all my friends love it!
I love instant photography, and this camera scratches that itch. The photos are small, think business card, but they're sharp and colorful. If you want bigger, the 50s has a big brother, the 210 (I think?), I have both and the bigger one is just as nice. The 50s is sturdy, and it works great, so far no problems.
[...]I love photography and just a year ago I was given an amazing digital SLR - I still don't know all of what it can do, I think it's supposed to have dinner ready for me too - I'll figure out that function one day. So, I just go this little gizmo, for fun! I hardly develop 1/2 of what I have taken with my "pro" camera" - and while I do love great photography, having fun should be a part of it too.My 3 yr old love this too - because she gets instant gratification - a photo "appears" in minutes, it's a great magic show! Then again, I love the instant gratification too!I'm not so sure I love the cost of the film and I can certainly take a quick 10 photos in no time!- but, the camera itself is just a lot of fun, and makes it well worth it.Brings me back to the days of my dad's Polaroid too!A great pick for any photo artist!
