Minoltaroid Spirit (side)

So I ripped apart the Spirit 600 and thought I could just build a long barrel to extend the mirror opening to the shutter of the Minolta, which worked, except that the shutter times were all 5 seconds+. And, the barrel shape came through onto the Polaroids. A nice effect, but not what I was initially expecting.


I took the pictures using the bulb setting, and then used a 9 volt battery to power the motor to shove the picture out. This is a great technique, because then you are able to do multiple exposures on 600 film.


I think my next attempt (this Friday) will involve me making a new chasis for the film pack so that it can actually stand vertically, and being able to get a full view on the polaroid itself.
