The Binding of Isaac Wiki

The Polaroid is a trinket added in the Wrath of the Lamb expansion.

It is a photo featuring Isaac and his parents.


  • Grants the access to the Chest.
  • Grants 5 seconds of invincibility (similar effect to Book of Shadows) if Isaac takes damage with 1/2 red heart remaining.


  • The Polaroid is guaranteed to drop from Mom, even if the player already holds the Polaroid.
    • If the player manages to empty the trinket pool before Mom's fight, it will not drop there.
  • If the player has no heart containers, the effect is triggered every time they take damage.


  • The Polaroid returns in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, where it appears as a passive item instead.
    • Rebirth also introduces a counterpart, to The Polaroid, called The Negative.
