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
    (triggered when using the main shutter button. A secondary button behind the main shutter allowed operation without triggering the flash; labeled "Non-flash button" in the instructions).
  • Polaroid's Light Management System (the darken/lighten exposure correction slider).
