    For sure, a Polaroid 600 definitely counts as a cheap camera (with expensive film). I would love to see some instant shots!

    This will be just the excuse I needed to try out the new IP black & white film for the 600. Should be fun.

    Matt that's a great image with any camera. Thanks for starting us off.
    Do I have to use duct tape? I was GOING to kind of do a nice job with it... Maybe I'll just use duct tape temporarily then do a better job later... Lol

    Seemingly no light falloff (cell phone example is bad) AND movement capability...

    So excited to try this!!

    I don't know what focal length this lens is but my other one (that has a nice filter thread but also is in better condition and I wasn't willing to sacrifice) was 130mm I believe, so about that.

    Stone that looks awesome. I have one of those old Autographics and that would never have occurred to me. Can't wait to see what you can produce with it.

    Thanks, it's a 116 not a 120 and so I figure the image circle would be big enough for 4x5 with a little nice vignette but it looks like it actually covers way wider than that. We'll see though.

    The red cloth is duvytine, I know you are supposed to use black, but I have a ton of this red lying around so just figured I would use that instead and it's mostly recessed so should be fine to prevent any light leak and not reflect too much light.

    I'm mostly worried about metal particles getting caught in my toyo body, but I think it's ok, we'll see how it goes.

    Hmm, I don't really own any cheap cameras. I guess that I could go out and buy one, but that would cost more than using a camera and film that I already own.

    Hi Stone, I'll have to take a picture of the camera I'm using, it's a little similar to that. I used the lens from an old Kodak 3A that I got just for this purpose. The lens is nice but the body was a disaster, so I only paid about $15 for the camera. If I remove one of the B&L rapid rectilinear elements it covers 8x10. My biggest problem is that I keep forgetting to remove the front lens element... now my wife made me a big sticker that says "Take off the lens!!!" and I've made a bunch of nice 8x10 pictures in the last week.

    Edited... ( I was thinking of the Kodak 2, not the 2A ... )
