    Normal polaroid 600 stuff. Just use a bit of the cardboard to slide it into the camera and remember (usually but not always) to set it all the way to darken. Seems to work okay, better for not-100% sun but isn't too bad even then.

    Yes, I'm definitely in! (PM sent to Art.) Received a double pack of 600 film today, so I could finally test the camera. It works like a charm, so let's have some fun!

    Only risk is that I will have shot both packs of film on other subjects before I start working on this exchange. I'll just have to order some more film, I guess. I didn't know Polaroid could be so addictive ...

    Just a question that comes to mind: will there be a time plan once we have all 22 people needed? Like shoot within a month and send & receive the month after? Or just "when you're ready"?

    OK, I'll give it to the end of the week and we'll go with who we have. Which means sending out less than 10 prints, unless some folks want to be in two groups? If, just say so.

    OK, it looks like we've exhausted this thread. I'll organize the names into two groups of 8 tonight. This means, 7 instant prints to be sent out ....

    Stay tuned.

    Just a little note, for those of us in the UK, The postal system is kind of at a halt due to strikes until Thursday so we're not going to be the first ones out of the gate for sending stuff out. Even if we manage to take things to the post office directly, there's no guarantee it'll get anywhere until Thursday.

    Good morning everyone,
    ALL 7 instant print postcards posted from me Monday 15 October at Salisbury, Maryland U.S.A.
    All were of SX-70 style prints with the address hand printed, using a sharpie on the front white bottom margin. I used first class letter rate, not postcard rate for U.S. Canada and European addresses.
    I hope everyone receives theirs. Results will be interesting.
    Sam H.

    Hi Guys,

    I also shot all of my Polaroids at last weekend's New England get together. This time, since I think only 7 or 8 of my 10 cards made it safely across the postal systems the last time, I may 'envelope' them to the UK and abroad. Blasphemy! Dunno yet ....

    I'm stuggling with the same choice. I shot more than enough Polaroids last week, so I just have to choose which to send. Easy enough. Tougher choice: part of the fun seemed to be just to put a stamp and an address on them and post them. But... they are officially too small (according to the rules of our postal service). I guess even more important than the mentioned "part of the fun" is that they actually reach their destination... So, I'm afraid I'm going to have to put 'em in envelopes...

    Or I can try sending just one or two for now, see if they arrive. I have a few spare photos, should it fail...

    Hmmmm... choices, choices...
