    Polaroids are Photogenic

    Just a quickie digital photo of my new Automatic 104. I did very little to set up this shot - just placed it on a speaker and used window light. I can't get over how photogenic Polaroids are.

    Maybe they made it look that good on purpose, to make everyone stare at the camera with a smile on their face, just as you click the shutter...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    No Leica

    I won't say I No Leica but it isn't an M2R or an Art Deco Kodak Bantam folder (1930 era). But whatever rings your bell. Can you get film for that now? I haven't kept up with the instant film thing.

    It's getting harder to find, but yes, you can run Fuji FP-100b or FP-100c.

    Mine works, and I plan to convert it to run on 2 AAA batteries.

    The older the Polaroid, the more photogenic, generally. The first one's that have the fake leather covering are gorgeous! As is the SX-70. The cheap, plastic cameras that used 600 film that came later? Not so much...

    I used to shoot 4x5 Portra in my 150. It doesn't give a full 4x5 image but works well. The image is 3.5"x4.5".
