can anyone recommend a polaroid camera? one of the girls i assist uses one and it gets such cool results it will be more like a toy than anything else.

i was looking at the LAND series cameras on ebay, just dont know what to get. she even mentioned that after a certain point they made them all use the wound fill in a canister instead of the flat film??? something along those lines???

any info would be great!!

Hmm... for better results,... pick up a used RB67 with a 65mm lens, and a NPC polaroid back..

would that expose the entire polaroid? on her setup (bronica medium format with polaroid back) it would only shoot a small square on the polaroid, not the entire thing. while her vintage polaroid cam would shoot the entire thing.

If you can find one, get a Polaroid SLR 690. It takes SX-70 film, which you can manipulate with your fingers for creative effect if you want to. The 690 will fill the frame, has autofocus, has a great lens, and is an SLR so you can frame exactly what you want.

Scratch the SX-70 part. The 690 takes 600-series film. I know someone who modified one to take the SX-70 stuff.

None of the Polaroid backs for 35mm or 2 1/4 cameras will fill the whole Polaroid sheet, they'll all leave some black on two or more sides. You would beed a real Polaroid camera, like the Land models or the SX-70 types. There are many fine-art photogs who manipulate the SX-70 images and copy them, or sell them as art. There's a ton of cameras on Ebay, just make sure you'll be able to get film for it for a while. I think Polaroid is going the way of the dodo now that digital is here. I haven't bought a box of it for over a year (I used it for light-checks with my Mamiya RZ-67 on shoots with lighting, now I use my D70). The film you mentioned about being wound into a canister was (maybe still is?) a Polaroid slide film, both color and B/W. Its not like the prints you get with the other cameras, this was real film that required a special Polaroid processor (about the size of a small shoebox) that would develop the image in a couple minutes, but then you had to let the film dry a bit and it was always very delicate and unstable, and would scratch and get dirty really easily. I was kind of a trend in the late 80s and early 90s. This old shot of Pamela Anderson was done on B/W Polaroid slide film. If I wanted that look today, I'd shoot it on Scala or play around in PS.

Personally, I think the "old" shots of Pamela Anderson were the best. And of the "old best" shots, yours is one of the best shots of her I think I've ever seen. If that were my shot, it'd be on my wall.

Polaroid hasn't made that stuff for god knows how long. Lordy it was expensive. I've still got the processor you mention (somewhere in the basement, I think).
