The Joy of Instant Photography [Gizmodo]
This reminds me that I should find a Polaroid camera since the film we be produced come December again.
I searched eBay and, wow, are the SX-70's expensive. Sure, they're nice and getting one with all the original accessories gives the camera collector in me a photographic (photogenic?) boner. Still. I won't pay over $100 for something I can likely find in a antiques mall with a tenth as much.

Mmm... Polaroid. I could stop faking it. :)
Except with you. It's all real with you, babeh.

Wait... I thought they were just going to release the 600 film not SX-70...

I was under the impression that they were doing both kinds of film. Hrmmm.... I shall investigate.

Even the website doesn't really specify (what I ca find) what they're making. My guess is that you're right, they produce a 600 size film rather than the wacky small stuff for the SX-70. :)

Well if you want something that shoots 600 I have several spares and would be happy to send you one. At some weird point in my life I unintentionally became a polaroid collector.

Really? I'm not going to pass up a free camera. :)

Yeah sure :) I think it will be fun to see what images you make from it.

Yup. I linked the project site in my comments with tyskkvinna which has a countdown to their production date.

So what I wanna know is how you're friended on my "professional" LJ (as opposed to my personal one, "devikat") for ... how long now? When we've got at least four "friends" in common, with another 7+ that I'm familiar with. And I'm pretty sure we've met in person at someone's birthday once...
