Spectra was the successor to Polaroid's successful 600 series. Spectra cameras are physically more compact than the 600 series cameras, and came equipped with sonar autofocus, automatic exposure and a digital control system. There is a socket for remote control.
The Spectra Pro has an LCD control screen that allows manual focussing, multiple exposures, timed exposures, long exposures and flash inhibit. It is the most sophisticated control system available on any Polaroid instant film camera, and can produce remarkable results with care. Unfortunately there is no Spectra equivalent of the excellent SLR680- if there was, it would easily be the best Polaroid camera.
While Polaroid film is no longer available, the Impossible Project has some in development that will work in this camera, though it is not up to the standards of the original Polaroid film yet.
The Spectra Pro has a "quintic" plastic 3-element f/10 125mm lens. This gives a field of view slightly wider than a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera, and the small aperture gives acceptable depth of field without sharp focussing.
The Spectra cameras are easy to use and produce good results on a somewhat larger film than the 600 series. There are a range of accessories available, including a copy stand, trick-shot lens kit, closeup kit and law enforcement kit.
