The "frog tongue", the black tongue, a kind of sheet that comes out along with the film after taking a shot with your Polaroid is a very important component. This in fact protects the film from light during the first moments of development. If you notice that your "frog tongue" has become weak, does not completely cover the film in its exit phase or does not fit properly after you have taken the photo away, it is probably the case to replace it. Many think it's just an unimportant layer of film but, believe me, it's not like that. It costs very little and changing it is very simple, if you need a step-by-step guide, take a look at my YouTube channel and watch the video tutorial, it will take a few minutes and you will have the new frog tongue installed, you don't need to disassemble the camera unscrew any screws. This part is produced directly by Polaroid Originals and is suitable for all 600 and new i-Type cameras. I hope as always to have been useful, good day and good shopping.
Il "frog tongue", la linguetta nera, una specie di foglio che vien fuori assieme alla pellicola dopo aver effettuato uno scatto con la vostra Polaroid e' un componente importantissimo. Questo infatti protegge la pellicola dalla luce durante i primi istanti dello sviluppo. Se notate che il vostro "frog tongue" e' diventato debole, non copre interamente la pellicola nella sua fase di uscita oppure non rientra in sede adeguatamente dopo che avete tirato via la foto, probabilmente e' il caso di sostituirlo. Molti pensano che sia solo uno strato di pellicola poco importante ma, credetemi, non e' cosi'. Costa davvero pochissimo e cambiarlo e' molto semplice, se vi serve una guida passo-passo fate un salto nel mio canale YouTube e guardate il video-tutorial, vi basteranno pochi minuti ed avrete installato il nuovo frog tongue, non serve smontare la fotocamera o svitare alcuna vite. Questo ricambio e' prodotto direttamente dalla Polaroid Originals ed e' adatto a tutte le fotocamere seie 600 e le nuove i-Type. Spero come sempre di esservi stato utile, buona giornata e buono shopping.
Seriously ignore the bad reviews, they're all people who thought they were buying a camera. This is just the rolled up plastic thingy to cover newly printed photos. Fit like a glove on my Polaroid Sun 660, does it's job exactly as advertised. It's a little bit fumbly to get the photo out from under it though, and the price is a little bit eyebrow raising, but I'll take that over sun damaged photos in a heartbeat.
honestly, if you cant read through a product's description well enough to learn you're not getting a camera with this purchase, you might need a little help. does what its supposed to do and was an extremely easy installation, if i buy any more 600 cameras i'll definitely buy more of these
I bought an old Polaroid One Step 600 camera on eBay a few months back. Pictures were coming out okay but lacked some contrast and looked off. Once I installed this, it fixed it! It shields the photos for the first few critical seconds after the photo ejects (make sure to keep color photos in darkness for first 6 minutes in a pocket, purse, under arm, etc).
Installation was easy enough. I used a butter knife to pry off the front lip (be careful not to break it!). Price is a little steep for a simple shield, but it works nonetheless.
I recently restored a Polaroid and couldn't figure out why my pics developed poorly. Turns out I needed a working frog tounge and the one on the camera was not doing its job right. This helped a bunch with spotty development and light damage.
