In Thing: The Polaroid camera

The Polaroid 600 Instant Camera has already won itself a niche in design history alongside other gadgets whose brand names stand as a generic by-word for any of its competitors' clones: the Hoover, the Walkman, the Kenwood. But while these brands capitalized on the ultimate consumer accolade, the Polaroid, after its arrival in the early 1980s, seemed to fall by the wayside. The advent of the video camera in the mid-Eighties offered the same immediacy but with the added novelty of moving pictures, and the instantaneous nature of the Polaroid was deemed a gimmick rather than a trashy virtue.

Letter: Big Brother? Hardly

Sir: Is the repetition of 'Big Brother' in Stewart Hennessey's article ('Long lens of the law', 6 July) really necessary? It might be appropriate if this was an intrusion upon private space. But can there be any more objection to a camera than to a pair of eyes in a public arena?

Camera 'mistake'
