Impossible Polaroids
Impossible Polaroids
A few days ago Thomas lent me one of his Polaroid cameras. It is almost a childhood dream. I still remember one day that my parents took me to a fair, one of those places where companies show their latest products or services. Usually, they provide entertainment for children, so there it was. That particular day, we were allowed to pick a costume and then they would take a picture of us. I wanted to be an Indian. Suddenly, clack! And they gave me a piece of hard paper with a black box. No idea. But what amazing surprise when I could slowly see some figures appear. Me. Myself as an Indian. I could not believe it! My parents knew what it was, but we never had such an invention! I have one only single Polaroid picture from my childhood, that one. I would look at it once in a while, the picture that I could have and see a few seconds after it had been taken. After that, a gap of more than 20 years. Until yesterday! Talking about it at one of our CCCP meetings, Thomas offered me to borrow one of his cameras. He is an instant photography expert, he will teach me how to use it and I could have it for a while! Then I ran to Photografica to buy some Impossible film (one color, one B&W, I wanted to try it all). I still decided to wait for Silvio to come back from Brazil, I really wanted to share the magic moment with him. Here the results.

I got this on Ebay for $7.99. I guess I've been on a retro thing lately. First an old Nikon FE2 film camera and now this Polaroid Sun 600 LMS instant camera. There are a lot of neat Polaroid models, but this is how I remember Polaroid cameras when I was growing up. I used to have Polaroid and I think it was this exact model. It sure does bring back memories! Even though modern technology and monster megapixels are cool, it's nice to get back to the basics every once in a while. Too bad the film is out of production. You can still buy film online, but it's about $20 for 10 exposures. That's $2/ a picture!! I did read that Fuji might start making this film soon and that it will be cheaper and easier to get. That would be sweet. Strobist Info: Nikon D300 commander mode + SB-900 on a lightstand 45 degrees camera right, SB-600 Left behind Polaroid.
