      This is awesome, but I don't understand... I thought polaroid film wasn't being made anymore? where do you get it?

      You know, if you shoot the photo by putting a whole pack into the pinhole, you can then put the pack into any camera and it will eject it, thinking it's a darkslide, and therefore running the photo through rollers and developing it for you. For all the people who don't have a spare set of jaws from an SX70, this would be helpful! I guess it would mean the photo is closer to the pinhole and change some measurements, but thanks to the mr. pinhole that would be easy to calculate.

      I'm making a pinhole for peel-apart and was hoping to find out about the reciprocity failure, too, but it looks like that's not here. :( But it will be fun to test out this on 600 film, since I never use it and you've already done all the math for us!

      do you think there's any other film paper aside from polaroid 600 we can use?

      This is really cool (:
      I don't have any 600 film left, but I have loads of spectra film.
      Do you know if this would work well with spectra?

      how to take out the polaroid paper?

    16. lilcalichick86 43 months ago | reply

      say i could finagle some kind of attachment "pinhole lens" to put on my polaroid 300 camera lens when taking certain pictures. would this not work at all because of the need for prolonged exposure or is it possible that i would get some cool effects? just a thought....

      I was thinking on doing the opposite thing. I have a polaroid 600 and the paper (www.the-impossible-project.com) is a bit expensive for me. I do have at home a amplifier (for develop black and white pictures at home) and sensitive-light paper... so I was thinking I can put the paper in the polaroid and take a picture with it (most like a pinhole camera but using de polaroid with the flash and so... Of course I have to be extra carefull to shield it from the light because of light sensitivity to not burn it and then to a dark room to develop but do you think this could work?
