Max's Camera is a major gameplay element in Life Is Strange. Max's camera is used primarily to complete optional photograph objectives around specific locations in Arcadia Bay. Max has a retro instant photo camera.

Background Edit

When Max was a child, her parents gave her a Polaroid camera, a type of instant camera, typically manufactured by the Polaroid Corporation. As a result, Max maintained her interest and wish to become a photographer until she reached adult age.

When the Caulfields moved to Seattle, Max perfected her skills as a photographer and was later accepted into Blackwell Academy over the summer of 2013. Despite the advancement of cameras and the digital age, Max maintained the use of analog cameras, despite the rising expenses of analog camera film and the work that went into maintaining them.

During the confrontation with Nathan Prescott at the Blackwell parking lot, Max fell on the ground and broke her camera. After failing to fix it at Chloe's house, Chloe gave her a replacement camera that originally belonged to her father William.

Trivia Edit

  • Whenever Max takes a photograph, she shakes the picture before placing it in her bag.
  • Individuals who use Polaroid cameras are typically advised to never "shake" the photograph. Shaking the photograph does not help develop the photograph faster and actually damages the quality of picture taken. This does however only apply to newer film (post 70's). 
  • Max's camera is based on the Polaroid JobPro and most of the other models from 600 Polaroid camera line; the camera Chloe gave her is based on the Polaroid 1200si from the Polaroid Image/Spectra line of Polaroid cameras.
