    Nice result from the "new" Polaroid. I have been tempted by a converted 250, myself. The Fuji film is cheaper and more reliable, but the Impossible Project film still has its charm to me. Is this one as much fun to use as the SX-70?

    Thanks. :-)

    They're both fun to use, but so very different both in operation and in the way they see.

    With the SX-70, you see more accurately what you're focusing and framing, and of course the integral film means you just nip the print as it's coming out of the camera, stuff it in your pocket or bag, and keep going. The camera folds up smaller and is a bit lighter.

    With the Land 350, it's a great big beast of a thing folded and even bigger deployed for use. The RF seems very accurate despite the rather inaccurate feel of the focusing mechanism. Then there's the whole pull tab, pull film, keep it safe for a minute or so, peel apart and protect the slightly sticky surface of the print while you fold and discard the gooey transfer negative packet.

    People you're photographing get very entertained either way. With the Fuji films, they get to see their print in about a minute or so, with the Impossible Color Protection film, it's more like 35 minutes. That changes the interaction between you and the subject.

    The Land 250 is probably a better bet than the Land 350 I have. I had to remove the film pack pressure spring (it's designed for the Polaroid film packs, which have a metal back that distributes the pressure; the Fuji packs just deform and jam with it) as well as remove the 350's electronic print timer (it occludes some of the space in the film bay, which clears the Polaroid film pack but not the Fuji ... another 'squeeze the film pack and the film jams' situation). Once removed, you've essentially turned the 350 into a 250.

    Really, I'd like a Land 195, but they go for big bux (Tokinon f/3.8 lens with mechanical shutter and aperture control ... not willing to spend $600-900 for one of these beasties. Yet anyway. ;-)

    I think my favorite and the best overall performance for my purposes are the Spectra SE/Spectra Pro cameras. A bit bigger than the SX-70 but easier to handle, flexible enough through the lens accessories available, and integral film for ease of handling and shooting, less wastage to deal with. But the pack film does have its own nice imaging qualities.

    Too many fun options. I may just have to get a couple of Instax cameras too.

    I really like this set of polaroid photos. I myself have recently gone back to shoot polaroid as well. Here is an example taken with the Mamiya 80mm F1.9 on the Pentax 67 body and polaroid back.

    Yes, but then every and each corner often pay its reward with a new, special and unik world. Have to go there in the easter once again, I can feel.
    Perhaps one should bring the SWC.

    Thorkil,
    Beautiful capture and a great example of the Hasselblad SWC Biogon 38mm. This may not be the sharpest lens but it is the most beautiful rendering super wide angle lens in the medium format platform.
    Best Regards,
    Son

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I haven't been shooting much film lately...certainly not with my 35mm cameras. So I pulled this one from my pre-digital archives. Hard to believe that the year 2000 was pre-digital for me.

    This is a scene from the 2000 Anchorage Fur Rondy Gran Prix. I know it was shot with a Nikon F2 (my only 35mm camera at that time). Probably a 50mm f1.4 non-AI lens and either Ilford HP5 or FP4. I'm afraid I haven't kept very good records over the years. Scanned at least 10 years ago with my old Canoscan 2710 (not the best scanner by a long shot, but all I could afford at the time).

    The Rondy Gran Prix was cancelled a few years ago. The cost of liability insurance for the races (on city streets) had just become too high.

    Really quite wonderful. The scene by itself is grand, but the rendering offered by the SWC lens just makes it sing.

    I've shot the color and it's good, but it's not like the B&W. I'll most likely stop using this camera when I use up the FP-3000b.

    Sad to see this old Polaroid Land 350 now has a lifespan which will play out depending on how quickly I consume 230 exposures. They have to count, each and every one.

    thank you very much, Godfrey (even though the yellow poster became a bit harsh, but it was a bit "alarming" in the colour, in real life).

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I havenŽt been in here for a very long time - for various reasons, none of them pertinent to this forum. A lot of great images to see - as before!

    November is a really bad month for light around here. Sun low and seemingly in an awful hurry. The woods are still there, though, and I keep bringing the F2.

    These days IŽm lucky to get off a shot at 1/30th wide open, even when horizontal strips of sunlight make way among the tree-trunks. This rain pond in the middle of a track lured me for days - with a rather disappointing result.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    In 2011, I took a photo of the Chevron building here in Anchorage with my Hasselblad 501CM and the 60mm CFi lens on Velvia 100. Cropped it from square and converted to B&W with Nik SilverEfex Pro. I created these two very different B&W versions. The more graphic B&W version (Version 2 below) was one of the two images I submitted for the LUG 2011 Yearbook.

    I like both versions, but I'm still glad I submitted Version 2 instead of Version 1. That's not always been the case for me. It's surprising how many times I go back to an image years later and wonder "What was I thinking?!?!"

    I'm going thru my 2013 images tonight, trying to decide which two images to submit for the 2013 LUG Yearbook.

    My photo workshop group got together for the annual holiday party on Thursday evening. I decided to do Polaroid portraits of all who would agree to participate ... It was lot of fun!
