This year it was a real shame that Polaroid Week just snuck up on me. It serves me right for not watching social media a little more closely. But I still managed to get out on the last day to get some Instant film shooting in. This year I was sort of limited. My wonderful Automatic Land Camera Model 250 has a dead battery and I didn’t have time to fix it up with the AAA battery fix. Also I didn’t get in any order from Impossible to run my Spectra (the only Integral Polaroid I have working), and didn’t get a couple packs of Instax Mini to run through my Lomo’Instant. But I did have a semi-shot box of Polaroid Type 72 film, a 545i back and my trust Intrepid camera. So I headed out into the campus on a beautiful spring day to get in some shooting! The Intrepid certainly garnered some looks as I went around shooting, and like most expired Polaroid (This stuff expired about ten years ago) there were some misses. One thing I did notice is that you really have to double check your alignment of the 545i holder so that it’s tight or you’ll get some light leaks, but overall it worked really well!
