Polaroid

Test shot with the new Polaroid SX-70 I've got from eBay, rather a clever little Polaroid, it's surprisingly small too, I rather like how easy it is to focus and how it look through the viewfinder, much better than looking through my Lubitel 166B viewfinder (quick note - i didn't like having the border on the Polaroid so I decided to just crop to the picture itself, nice and clean).

 

I managed to modified the 600 films into the SX-70, removing the ND filter on the sensor and set the camera to the darkest setting on the sensor, picture still came out slightly overexposed but not so much.

 

Who need Photoshop?

 

Edited - I've notice due to Polaroid announced that they won't be doing instant film anymore, this lead to an increase number of people searching "Polaroid" on Flickr, and since this polaroid came first out of the list of search, I take this chance to show you the Save Polaroid site;

 

"This site will document the aftermath of this announcement and will serve as a home-base for the effort to convince another company to begin producing the cherished technology that Polaroid has so carelessly abandoned, this is not about saving Polaroid, the company, rather the remarkable invention of Edwin Land, the instant film that made Polaroid a household name."
