I've got about 5 boxes of Polaroid Type 55 hidden in my basement. Currently a single box is going for $200 on Ebay. I'm so glad I stocked up when I did. We took some time this weekend to waste a shot of 55 on a quick family portrait. I really love this film. I'm so glad New55 is on the way.
I attempted to tintype today. I failed. I learned a lot though.
Fell in love with a camera this weekend at Glass Key Photo, my neighborhood vintage camera and film store, mere steps from my own door. It's a Super Speed Graphic from the very early 1970's. The best part about this camera is how you cock the shutter.
Grab the lens hood and twist it clockwise. Its such a satisfying mechanism.
