In the past, a few fellow Polaroid shooters wrote to ask how close the Polaroid Macro 5 (a big bulk of a camera) could focus. Here is the answer as a visual. This ladybug in real life is less than half the size of my smallest fingernail. It is evident that this camera was useful to its intended audience, before the days of digital photography (medical, dental, and forensics staff). They can be cheaply had on Ebay and utilize Impossible Project Spectra film. This camera has been a boon to my Polaroid botanical work, as the SX70 nand SLR 680 only focus as close as 9 inches.
