52 Cameras: # 134 — Polaroid Sun 600 LMS




Scanned on a CanoScan 9000f at 600DPI. These are resized to 1024 pixels on the short side.
The first two are also in the video. There are 8 frames in a pack of Impossible film — it’s not like I have 36 images to choose from, plus, I really like them.
Zoe.  No idea why it happened but I love the colors on the white walls.

Most RVs run the gamut from butt-ugly to "meh".  Airstreams are cool.

This is a lame picture but it’s the result of an experiment so I included it. I used a telephoto adapter for a Canon AF35ML/Super Sure Shot/Autoboy Super (which sadly, I don’t have working yet). I framed using the adapter lens held over the viewfinder lens and then moved it over the taking lens. I was a little sloppy with the framing (no tripod) and got my finger in the picture but it works! That means I can use an even longer telephoto, a wide angle, or even a fish-eye adapter. I do need to adjust for the loss of light next time — there ain’t no free lunch.

Another developer-didn’t-quite-reach splat. Still, not bad for film that’s been expired for 2 years.

Just after sunset using flash override.  Highlighting the foliage in the foreground would've looked weird.

My other swwetie, Trinity.  She has a 6th sense like Zoe, and starts moving when a shutter fires.
