In the '91 classic. Thelma And Louise. There is an white camera.

Looks like some sort of Polaroid.

What is the name of that camera?

  • \$\begingroup\$ This is not exactly a good question but that camera looks like its came from the future of an 50's science fiction movie. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 3, 2019 at 21:47

It's a Polaroid type 600 box camera

Specifically, it's the Polaroid Cool Cam. This model was not actually white, but grey with pink front plates and a pink strap. Although the pink front isn't visible in the video, you can see the pink strap hanging from the camera.

These cameras shot Polaroid instant film, and many versions of this type were made (all of which very similar).

  • \$\begingroup\$ I had the normal (I suppose "non-cool") black version (with red front?)... \$\endgroup\$ Commented Aug 4, 2019 at 12:04
  • \$\begingroup\$ @BaardKopperud that was the cool cam as well. It was released in multiple colour schemes, and iirc this version (with "cool cam" on the flash unit) in two colour schemes. \$\endgroup\$
