Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture (SOLD)

Which apparently doesn't help at all.

We have an original Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera with it's original cowhide leather case. And it does work! Check out my test polaroids, an instructional video from the 70's, and a link to where I bought polaroid film after the jump.









You can buy a variety of different film from Impossible, a company comprised of former Polaroid employees. I tried out the Silver Shade instant film. It's a monochrome film and depending on light, heat, humidity, etc, the film develops differently. I kind of prefer the unknown aspect of using this film over normal digital photography. You won't know how the shot will turn out till five minutes later. And even if it is a blurry, overexposed, sepia colored photo, it's still really cool looking.

$89 for the camera and carrying case

PS I would totally keep this for myself, but I never take photographs and I want someone to LOVE it.

  2. I've bought four "working and tested" SX-70s on Ebay and none of them work. I have a bunch of SX-70 and Impossible film in my fridge waiting to be used. Can I purchase it?
