The Camera Museum: Polaroid Supercolor 635

Patrick Tobin, | Aug 11, 11:00 AM

The Supercolor 635 was one of many variations in the simple plastic-bodied 600 camera line featuring the Light Management System.

A basic 600-series camera, the Supercolor 635 features a 116mm single-element plastic lens, fixed focus with a minimal focal length of 4 feet, electronic shutter and a built-in electronic flash. It is similar to the Sun 600 series in design, except for the beloved rainbow stripe which would be a characteristic true of the later Supercolor 635 CL edition as well.

  1. Hi Gemma,

    It’s ok to give the back of the flash hood a little knock to get it to go down. When the hood is in the upright locked position, they can sometimes get locked tight. If you have continued trouble, email us at

  2. Hi, am wondering how to put the flash down on my supercolour 635. Can’t seem to do it and don’t want to force it and break it. Could you help me please.
