Hello, I'm Grant from the UK

Messagepar GrantLDN » jeu. 27 août 2015 / 10:08 am

Hello :D

Right, so here is where I stand.

I had a polaroid as a kid, lost it in a taxi within a week of owning and never had one since.

A couple years ago I got back in to photography, but digital. I had a Canon 500D, then upgraded to a 70D then again to a 5D MKiii.

I've sold all my camera equipment now but I have a bug to get back in to some polaroid photography. I am getting a Fujifilm mini 8 as I like the compactness and 'credit card size', the colours etc.

But I also want to try and work out which Polaroid camera to buy for full size instant square photos. But I have came on here to learn how different cameras and different films give different saturation etc.

The main reason I am getting the bug back again is, 1 - my partner is pregnant now and I would like to take some photos along the way and build a photo album, 2 I'm going to a wedding next Friday ( 1 of my friends, first time I have been to a friends wedding, its normally family stuff, I'm 25 so I am getting to that age now ).

So any advice I can get I am willing to learn. I like cool temperature film photos and I do like grain, not too much of a fan of the really vintage sepia / orange look photos, that's a bit too vintage for me.

See you around :super:

Welcome back to the world of analogue film!

Firstly, Fujifilm is a great place to start and one of the cheapest alternatives!
At the moment with fujifilm you don't have much creative options and most cameras that use the mini give you a lovely crisp clean image. There are speciality film packs that give you coloured borders or patterns.

Secondly, there are a few options when it comes to the square based shaped polaroid. There is now a fujifilm version that uses a specific square shaped film just for those cameras.

The Polaroid classic style has the following film available that work with specific polaroid cameras.

-600
These cameras often have a 600 number in their title e.g. Polaroid Sun 600 or Polaroid 636 Close Up
The film has an ISO set at 640

-SX-70
These cameras can vary in naming a little e.g. Land camera, The Button, SX-70 Camera
The film has an ISO set at 160

-i-type
These are a newer film that only work with newly built cameras such as the Polaroid Onestep2 or Polaroid OneStep+
The film is different because it does not have batteries attached to power the camera. Instead the cameras have an internal battery.

Hope this helps and if you are looking for a new polaroid please check out my store
