down to my last 20 shots on my SX-70 converted to take Polaroid 600 film unless I find a source of frozen expired stuff cheap - not paying $3+ per shot for the Impossible Project film

I'm not sure I ever shot anything in my 4x5 cameras but Polaroid, tbh. RIP type 55

a friend of mine has one of these, they make you feel instantly nostalgia for your youth as it fleetingly slips from ur grasp

the fuji equiv (they look exactly the same, is the polaroid just rebranded? instax film or w/e?) is really really popular in asia

it's kind of lol, I see my students take a pic with it, then they take a pic of the polaroid with their iphones so they can upload it to fb

Supposedly the Instant 300 was co-developed with Fuji, I think it's really just a rebranding.

Instax 210 came in New Year's Eve morning, so I got to take it to that night's party. Much more interesting camera than the little Instant/Instax - I wouldn't have bought the latter if Amazon hadn't told me the 210 was backordered.

The 210 is a great party camera - we started sticking all the prints behind cabinet doors and drawers, so that by the end of the night the kitchen was covered in Polaroids. Need to find a scanner to put them online and see about making (terrible, I'm sure) enlargements.
