    [​IMG]I don't do them, and I don't shoot polaroid film at all, but .....

    If I were going to do that, I would take a pack film camera and remove the polaroid auto exposure lens. Then I would graft an antique or a view camera lens to it. Then I would have a heck of a polaroid camera. One that for just a few bucks would give me great control for back light and even indoor with a tripod.

    The ones with the metal frames had tripod threads so you could do your own time exposures. The camera would look like the one in the top right corner.

    Looks awesome! I think a lot of people are into converting these old cams. They were so well made, I love seeing their lives prolonged. :thumbup:

    Well they aren't going to stay cheap thats for sure. As for the sllide thing I had forgotten that they did that. Much better idea polaroid is an expensive addiction. Thats why i never used their film.
