Hi-I'm a semi-retired lab tech and a photographer. I REALLY love Polaroid photography and I want to be able to share the excitement I feel about instant photography with the rest of the world!
Ezgi is the helpful companion who will come into my study every few hours when I'm at my desk to holler at me to take a break from the computer and PET HER ALREADY! She's a wonderful little 18-year-old kitty who's been a great help all these years!
Annie is a big help by dozing nearby, always ready to offer an opinion should I ask!

Frequently asked questions
Where can I buy film for my Polaroid camera?
If your camera is an "integral" camera (the photo ejects itself out), you can buy old and expired Polaroid film on ebay or other such sites. Expired film can be tricky but might also give you cool effects.
You can buy fresh film for your 600 and SX-70 camera from the BRAND NEW Polaroid site. POLAROID is back and they have a brand new formula with the best and sharpest colors yet of the newer generations. That is the film that will ship with your camera if you select a film option. You can also buy extra packs from CoxCameras!
What batteries do I need for my Polaroid camera?
Polaroid and Impossible Project film for the 600 and SX-70s cameras contain the battery that powers the exposure, flash, and motor to eject the photo. You never need to buy batteries for these cameras and if you buy fresh film, you always have fresh batteries!
(Be sure not to buy the Polaroid film in the yellow package. That has no battery and is only for their new cameras!).
Is there anything special I need to know about Polaroid and Impossible Project film?
Yes! First-do not shake it!
Second, once it ejects, put it in a dark place and keep it there for 45 minutes or so. The current formulas for this film require a good amount of time before it fully develops, so don't be alarmed if the photo is blue for several minutes.
If you're shooting in the sun, do what you can to prevent the sun from hitting the photo when it's been ejected-full sun shining on the photo will make a difference in the quality of the final image. After you take the shot, turn around so the sun is behind you or move the camera upside-down in front of you so that you can hold the photo with its front on your shirt as it ejects.
Lastly, read the paper that comes in the film pack. It's got all kinds of good info!
What exposure setting should I use on my Polaroid Camera?
From the Polaroid website: "All Polaroid cameras we sell have a dark & light setting built on them. It’s either a wheel (SX-70, SLR 680) or a slider (600, Image/Spectra).
Impossible’s instant film is a newly developed material. The ASA is a bit higher than the original film and therefor, it is important to put the settings in the following:
Polaroid 600 - slide to 1/4 in the dark
Polaroid SX-70 - slide to 2/3 in the dark
Polaroid Image/Spectra - slide to 1/4 in the dark
Polaroid 600 - middle
Polaroid SX-70 - slide to 1/3 in the dark
Polaroid Image/Spectra - middle
Shadow in Daylight:
Polaroid 600 - slide 1/4
Polaroid SX-70 - middle
Polaroid Image/Spectra - middle"
