    What lies behind the lens/shutter of the pack Polaroids like my 330? Can I dremel it off, then expoxy a lens board to which I can mount a 127 Ektar? Tools and I are not friends: nothing too complicated. Anyone tried? Can it be done?

    Anscojohn- Not complicated at all. I've converted one into a pinhole. Small screwdrivers and a wire cutter should do it. If memory serves, there is a thin metal retaining ring that hold the bellows onto the standard, easy to destroy. Be careful removing the rear element, or you'll have to re-attach the bellows with glue and gaffers tape. Works fine though...
