I've just started tinkering with a Polaroid instamatic Now. The photos are all off centre. Quite a ways off centre. A little research tells me the Viewfinder and lens are not aligned and that this is a design issue.. Gives you something to be considering at all times. Not so much instant fun, as irritating.

Anyone know a way to fix this ?

Now you'll understand why all those Instamatic family pics had tops of head or people standing next to the subject missing

On the other hand how do you expect to see and shoot the same if you are not looking through the same view as the film will see?
