For Polaroid Week 2017, I dug out the Polaroid 220 and a precious pack of FP3000b. //embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js //embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js //embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
I recently discovered a stray pack of expired Impossible Silver Shade for my Spectra. I didn’t expect much and thus was pleasantly surprised. I hear the newest Impossible films are getting pretty good. I may need to order a pack or two. The Spectra was fun to work with again.

While I was awaiting the return of my slides from the lab, I grabbed my Polaroid Spectra for a few quick shots. It had a pack of Impossible B&W which I needed to finish. Imagine my surprise when these popped out. I really shouldn’t let cameras sit around with film in them for so long.
Skipping ahead to the present. . . This week was Beth’s year-end band concert. She and her classmates did great. I packed along my SX70 and my Instax Min 90. I figured there wasn’t much point in trying to get shots of her across the crowded auditorium, so I concentrated on portraits. The SX70 was […]
Beth Impossible B/W Nigo edition dated 12/12 Polaroid Impulse AF
This week I am participating in Polaroid Week on Flickr and Twitter. I’ve been itching to shoot with one of my pack cameras anyway. Today I selected the Automatic Land 220 and loaded it with FP100c color film. My 220 is special in my collection. My grandfather bought it when he retired and took it […]

The Colorpack II is a cool Polaroid, if a bit quirky. The scale focusing is simple to use, and there is a mirror arrangement which makes the setting visible in the viewfinder. There are two apertures, marked 75 and 3000 for color and B&W film respectively. When shooting 3000 ASA B&W film, the depth of […]
