My New Camera - Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 215

   Remember when I told you about my 80's Polaroid? It is guilty of an instant camera craze that took place in my house. My partner and I became obsessed with Polaroid and instant photography. Then we found Michael Raso and learned about his Film Photography Project, his goal is to "put a Polaroid Pack camera in the hands of every film-curious shooter!". That convinced us that we should invest in a Polaroid Automatic Land Camera. Mainly because of how easy their film is to find and how affordable to buy, not to mention how AWESOME they look. Here it is, in all its glory the 215 model.

   This one has a plastic body and lens, which means that it's one of the lightest models compared to its metal body and glass lens siblings. This picture was taken on top of my cupboard and you can see my mushroom canisters in the background. I love this picture <3.

   It came with its cover and was in excellent condition. The battery was upgraded so I can use a CR 123 battery (still available from many stores) and they sent me a DVD with any instructions and information I might need for my camera model or any other.

   Since the film was so easy to find and comfortably priced we decided to get at least one film pack a few days after we bought the camera, and here is my second attempt at shooting a picture with it. The first attempt was a fail because of the lighting setting. I'm not showing it here because there's nothing to see, it was almost black. To take this picture I increased the light setting and it's much better than the other. I think you'll be seeing many more pictures from this camera here in the blog because we recently won an auction on eBay and got 5 more boxes of film. I'm SO happy! Not to mention I have another camera model on its way!!!!!! I'll tell you more about it as soon as it arrives.

What about you? Is there any new camera in your life? I'd love to see it.

  1. What a beauty. I still don't have my hands on a polaroid land camera, but recently treated myself to an Instax Wide and have been enjoying that. :)
