    How cheap is cheap? What's your budget?

    I'm guessing by "Polaroid camera" you want an instant camera which prints the photos out?

    Waste of money buying brand new. Look on Gumtree or go to Cex and get second-hand.

    Yes and no more that £30
    For that low of a budget you're going to have to get on eBay and try and find something which still has its film in production- most instant camera formats have died off. The Fujifilm Instax line of cameras are likely to be your best bet, the cheapest model they make (the Instax Mini 8) sells for as low as £50 so finding one for £30 second hand is probably doable.
