    Hi Terri!!! long time no talk... but I figured you need to get away from that boring "BS thread". hehehehe.

    Ok... big news for me. I now have 2 Polaroid cameras!!! WOOOOO! yes - miss digital has converted to polaroid. hahaha.

    So I have a boring old normal polaroid that takes 600 film that I've had for a few months now... but the other week i bought..... yes... wait for it... an sx-70! Woooo!

    I found it in an antique store for $30 and bought it on the spot. Got it home and jammed in a pack of 600 film and miraculously it works!! my god it's hard holding a polarising filter in front of it though. hehehe. But I got some nice shots of the boys in the studio.


    So yeah... i'm a little late on the whole sx-70 manipulation - but this camera is kick ass!!! I had no idea how automatic it is and... it has auto focus!! Wow! :drool:

    So I'm excited!

    that's all.

    I was joking. Unless you are involved it most likely is boring.

    :biglaugh: Oh, I just love you, Vicky....you always make me laugh.

    Congrats on the P-cams! Now the light is beginning to come on, eh? They are just.too.fun. ;)

    I'll have you hunting up one that shoots 669 film and begging me for info on image transfers before you know it. Just a matter of time..... :twisted:

    So when do we get to see some of these new pictures? :)

    And I've already been reading up on transfers.

    And you'll see some shots soon - when I move my laptop over to the scanner and scan them in. hehehe. Woooo! I'm so excited!

    Ok so here is the first ever polaroid I've taken:

    Can anyone guess what it is?
    [​IMG]

    hehehe.. ya, it's the bit of black cardboard that covers the film. It didn't pop out when I loaded the film for some reason and I didn't know that it had to come out - but anyway I figured it out and then pulled it out of the cartridge.

    This is the second photo I took:
    [​IMG]
    When I was pulling the card out it must've let some light in.

    oh and here's the third one - aww aren't we cute... a little blurry coz my arm isn't long enough but cute. :)

    :lol: Okay, so I'm not crazy about the first one.

    I do, however, like the second one....what is it about 'the Polaroid', anyway? I have an immediate feeling of kinship and nostalgia when viewing this this little shot. The cars in the background, even the light leaks....he somehow looks superimposed in this image - and it's great! You just can't plan this stuff.

    And yes, you're both very cute. ;)

    Keep shooting, this camera is your friend.

    ok... hmm... i think I've just discovered for myself that photo chemicals are bad for you......

    oh and also emulsion transfers aren't possible with 600 film... oh and the fumes make you a bit dizzy and stuff.


    anyway... *crawls on floor towards digital camera.... "oh why did I leave you?!"*

    No no, Boo, you need 669 film for that. Bunches of cams still out there that take it.

    Silly girl. Digital sux! :mrgreen:
