Two years ago I went on a mad hunt for an sx-70. I got one from Ebay for a fairly decent price. Then a week later, a search came up on Craigslist from a guy who was getting rid of a collection of vintage cameras. A couple of Polaroids were a part of that heap. Figuring I could use them for parts in case one of them was broken, I scooped them up. That is how I ended up with 3 sx-70's. I have since sold one. I didn't ever get around to using the camera's. I never got up the nerve to shell out for the obscure film when I actually found it.
But now, as you may have heard, The Impossible Project scored major points with analogue lovers everywhere by bringing the beloved Polaroid film back.
After I get past the $50 shipping fee, I'll put these puppies to good use.
