Polaroid 600SE

Today I went for a walk with my recently acquired Polaroid 600SE and some Fuji FP100C film. The film expired in 2013 but I wanted to give it a try, also because I got some quite expensive black&white pack films as well and I have to get used to the camera and the settings before using them.
Oh it was so much fun. People stop by to see what huge camera I'm using. Asking if it's autofocus and how many megapixels the sensor has *lol*.
This heavy beast is 50 years old and hasn't forgotten how to do the job !
Next step is to get prints using the negatives.

going online

it has been a while without a homepage. it took some conviction from friends to finally start and complete this project. in the beginning of 2018 a friend of mine finally kicked it off with helping me to select pictures which would become my portfolio and group them into categories (thank you so much Antonio).
throughout the year I had some shootings which enriched my stock of pictures and allows me to extend my online portfolio frequently.
and i found koken, the cms on which this site is built on. i not even discovered all the features yet, but it gives you a lot of freedom while guiding you perfectly through all the processes.

last but not least, special thanks to all people who believed in me and encouraged me to keep on going. first and foremost Ramses without whom i would never be where i am today !
(and yes i could be even further if i would listen to him)

some stuff about my latest invest

i have a Polaroid back for my Hasselblad camera since about two years and also was able to buy some color pack films for an acceptable price as prices increase due to the fact that this type of film isn't produced anymore. i bought this equipment because i've been sure that at some point someone will produce this type of film again, responding to the also increasing demand.

because the Hasselblad does only expose a 6x6 square of the picture, i wanted to have a camera which takes advantage of the whole exposable area to reveal the full potential of these precious films.

luckily i have my contacts and so i found an affordable Polaroid 600SE with a 127mm f/4.7 interchangeable lens. this has been one of the most professional Polaroid cameras at their time. and apparently I was on a roll because i also found a remainder of black and white packfilm that day. i bought three packs for a not exactly cheap price to find out a bit later that day, that there will be a kickstarter project launching later this year to reinvent the production of Polaroid 100 packfilms.
