  1. hi stepen,
    love the podcasts.
    realy love instant photography, got some 80 type viva and chocolate for my holga and 600 for my slr 680, also got a polaroid image and a fuji instax 100.

    the best of these instant films is that you can see the picture come to life as where you in the darkroom.

  2. Hi Stephen,

    Heard you on Inside Analog Photo with Scott Sheppard. Very happy to see you also embrace the Polaroid format. Please visit my blog, covering all things Polaroid, at arthurpolaroid.wordpress.com. Thanks for helping to keep analog such a wonderful, viable artform.

    Greetings from Massachusetts,

  3. Stephen-

    Totally with you on TIP films. I have used the ones for the SX-70, Spectra, and 600 series cameras. None of them with decent results. While what those folks are doing is admirable, the films just are not there yet. I LOVE my Fuji pack films, and Polaroid 300/Instax Mini films. They are gorgeous.

    Original Polaroid films are selling for lots of money online. I have been very reluctant to try, as you never know if the owner really did store it well.

    Hope you will check my blog out- it is truly out of love for the format.

  4. Stephen- do you still stay in touch with Barbara Hitchcock? I have been speaking with the folks at the MIT Museum about helping them catalog and archive their Polaroid artifacts (They have thousands of them) . Wondering if she has any connections there, as I haven’t heard back from their curator in a while as to the status of the project.

    Thanks,

    Arthur
