Polaroid week – Day 1


I wasn’t originally planning on participating in Polaroid Week. However, last weekend I purchased a Polaroid SX-70 at a swap meet and so got caught up in the fun. I ordered some Impossible Film for the SX-70, but in the meantime I remembered that I had my grandfather’s old Land Camera 320 in the closet, with some film still loaded from when I inherited it a couple of years ago.

I also had it wired to take AAA batteries! So yay for Past Monica!
While I was waiting for the Impossible Film I brought it with me to work last Wednesday. I was delighted that it worked! I snapped some shots of our library and around town. I was surprised the film was still good because it has been in the camera for a couple of years and was expired even before It found it’s way into the camera. Score one for Fuji!

Here are my shots. I had a lot of fun with it!

One thought on “Polaroid week – Day 1

  1. Those old folding Polaroids were generally capable of strong work. I sort of miss my Automatic 250. Sort of, because it had electrical gremlins from a DIY AAA rewiring that went, well, awry. But now I want to put my last pack of FP-3000B into my Colorpack II.
