While not all Polaroid and Impossible cameras have a tripod mount, many do. This allows for longer shutter speeds, light painting, studio photography and more. You can easily check if your camera has a tripod mount by looking on the underside (bottom) of the camera. Here you should see a small metal ring with grooves, allowing for a tripod to be screwed into place.
A non-exclusive list of cameras which have a tripod mount follows: Impossible I-1, Polaroid SX-70 (most models), Polaroid Sun660 AF, Polaroid Impulse, Polaroid 680/690SLR.
All these cameras utilise the standard tripod mount used internationally for many many years now, specifically: 1/4-20.
Please note that many cameras require that you un-mount the camera from the tripod before you are able to open the film door / mouth of the camera.
Instances where you might want to use a tripod include:
- Low-light environments
- Self-portraits (where you want to also be in the frame)
- Studio shoots
