The Polaroid 20×24 camera is a very large instant camera made by Polaroid, with film plates that measure 20 inches by 24 inches.

It is one of the largest format cameras currently in common use, and used to be hired from Polaroid agents in various countries. Currently in the United States this can be rented from 20x24 Studio based out of New York and Mammoth Camera in San Francisco.

Photographers such as Elsa Dorfman and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, have used this heavy (235 lb or 107 kg), wheeled-chassis camera.[1]

To celebrate Lady Gaga's new role as Creative Director of Polaroid, a portrait of her was shot with the 20×24 camera.[2]
