What happens if you shoot a pack of expired Polaroid film in it? You can use 600 film if you shave the little tabs off the bottom of the pack and use an ND filter on either the film pack or the lens to lower the film speed. I know the laminate materials for Polaroid film were thinner, which is why t...

Oh, cool! An east-coaster! Not many of us from the US on here, so it's good to see someone semi-local to me. Etiquette on here seems fairly loose- it's mostly an adult group, so if you're not a dick, I see no issue. I have read some, ahem, hair-raising things on here before, so as far as I can tell,...

Greetings from the other coast! Good to see another fan from the land where Polaroid was born! And on 4/20, no less... :fume: Welcome to a habit that's even MORE expensive... Polaroid!

I know I would be interested in some good Spectra film. I have noticed the same thing- it just doesn't seem to draw the same cash as the 600, and nowhere near what good Time Zero gets. Ebay might still be your best bet- I know I would find it and buy a bunch... for the right price, obviously...

More white showing = lighter picture, more black showing = darker picture. I find that when shooting indoors with PX70CP and the Mint flash, I need to lighten the shot, sometimes all the way toward light in dark situations, while outdoor shots are best between neutral and 2/3 towards dark, depending...

I would try the "600SE" conversion, meaning the camera would have a removable and interchangeable back and you could shoot either FP100C/3000B and Polaroid pack films, or 4"X5" when available. Not the easiest, but those cameras only bring money because of their potential after be...

Oh, wow! I have lived about 30 minutes outside NYC all my life and I saw that with my father and my uncle on our way to the New York Automobile Expo at the Jacob Javits center. I was 10, maybe 11 years old and had my "the Button" SX-70 camera with me for the show, but had no film in it unt...

What you have is Polaroid promotional film, probably something that was given out for an event, or possibly used for an event and you have come across some of the leftovers. The fat white tab at the bottom is the packet that holds the developer- when the frame comes out of the camera, this liquid is...

It does have an on/off switch and has a "half-flash" setting, allowing you to shoot PX680 and PX600 indoors with no N/D filter in place. I have noticed that while it was developed to work with the PX70 COOL films, it has a slightly reduced output on high to compensate for the slightly high...

I have several of those old 40-series roll-film cameras and have very fond memories of using them, with all the crazy antics to load it and pull the film through this maze of crap, then pulling the print out of the trap door in the back. It was quite a show to someone who hears Polaroid and thinks o...

I wrote a post few weeks ago about the trouble I had using PX color protection (same as the "white cloud" facono is taking about). it can be darker or ligther, and I'm not thinking it's because of the rollers (my rollers are really clean). other guys have got the same trouble and their ro...

"Digital revolution" be damned- we are still here, with our pockets full of darkslides and pull tabs, our lives littered with negative sheets and empty plastic film packs. Our ears, acutely tuned to prick up at the familiar sound of a frame being ejected, our noses sensitive to the smell o...

65 years of instant!

This past Sunday was the 65 year anniversary of the patent being issued to Edwin H. Land for the instant camera. I'm proud to be part of a group that is so dedicated to preserving these unique and somewhat "magical" old machines and the history that brought them to us. Happy (official) Bir...
