52 Cameras: Week 31 part 2 — Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 250

Another fun camera. ISO 3000 film takes some getting used to. Scanned on the CanoScan 9000f using Image Capture.app and Canon’s TWAIN driver. 4800DPI TIFF in millions of colors. Resized to 5% and converted to JPEG for upload.

The trucks are behind a chain link fence so the challenge was getting the lens through one of the holes without messing up the framing or blocking the shutter release.

I’m not sure what I did here. I think I left the camera on the indoor setting. The flares work since it’s a ghost bike.

This was an experiment. I used a portrait lens made for a Polaroid 100. I measured the distance since the rangefinder adapter doesn’t fit the 250. It would have been good but I was too close to the electronic flash. My hand and the cat’s butt are properly exposed.

I scanned negatives so I’ll do another post with strange results from that experiment.
