Polaroid History

Digital photography? You wish to spendA  a couple of hundred pounds on a camera that doesn’t even give you a picture in your hand until you’ve downloaded it to your computer and then printed it on your trash (or very expensive) color printer? Go ahead. But I’m sure I’m a lot more happier with my Polaroid 600 instant camera, with that oldskool polaroid 600 film. The prints are instant, which means that each picture is a unique artefact. Your photo is not a print of a negative which survives elsewhere; it is a really unique picture. And they are square, which is a lovely shape for a picture.

 

The polaroid 600 films are very overpriced, that’s really sad. There is some project called the impossible project that want’s to return the polaroid 600 film. Polaroid is also bringing back the polaroid instant camera with a funky new design, that also works on the oldskool polaroid 600 film! So I consider the polaroid 600 film will come back!

First of all get back in the time. On 21 February 1947, Edwin Land, the founder of Polaroid Corporation, demonstrated instant photography to the Optical Society of America. The first commercially-available instant camera, the Polaroid Land Camera Model 95, was in the stores before Christmas of the following year. The first films were sepia-tone; black-and-white Polaroid film was presented in 1950, but for color films we had to wait until 1963.

Since then, Polaroid has slowly honed its range of popular instant cameras. In 1977, the OneStep Land Camera was a big hit, and it held on for around four years which made the Polaroid OneSetp the biggest-selling camera of any type in the world. Throughout the 1990s, Polaroid have made 600 series cameras (that worked on polaroid 600 film) which have varied in outward appearance very slightly, but have a similar basic design.

Throughout its history, Polaroid has given some resources to photographer-artists in exchange for feedback about its products so they could improve them. The first of these, landscape photographer Ansel Adams, was hired by Edwin Land as a consultant in 1948. In his autobiography, Adams recalled that Land was “convinced that images can be as effective as words, and that every person has a latent ability to make effective contact with another through visual statements”.

 

Polaroid 600 Camera

Since each polaroid picture is very unique, people went to experiment with it. They experimented with their photographs, they used chemicals for it, but also a very intensive light or heat source and they used drugs for it also….
The ‘artist’s studio’ part of the Polaroid website tells you about some of this. There is also a nice book, Innovation/Imagination: 50 Years of Polaroid Photography (Abrams, 1999), for interested people to gaze at.

The new digital minded people can always scan their polaroids, so that they can be manipulate the polaroid with for example Photoshop and put it on the internet, or whatever. If you don’t have a scanner yourself, libraries, colleges and community centres have them, or reprographics shops will charge you an annoying but relatively small amount of money for scanning.

 

The polaroid 600 films are very expensive, that’s really bad. There is some project called the impossible project that want’s to return the polaroid 600 film. Polaroid is also relaunching the polaroid instant camera with a new age design, that also works on the oldskool polaroid 600 film! So I think the polaroid 600 film will come back!

Love it

A great find!
By  J. Corbett  March 13, 2014

In 2011, I started using The Impossible Project after three years of pining for Polaroid film. I purchased a very beat up Polaroid SLR 680 SE and went through many disappointments throughout the months.

Over the course of two years, I had a love/hate relationship with the film. As soon as I planned on giving up using the film, there was that one shot that dragged me back in. Sigh.

In 2013 (or was it ’12?), The Impossible Project introduced Color Protection. Not only was the film more reliable (every shot came out) but shielding the film wasn’t necessary. I still do it as a precaution, but I don’t feel guilty for peeking.

This film is a slightly modified version of the Color Protection film. It’s reliable. It’s easy to use. The only time I don’t get great results is when lighting is off or I’m impatient and “just shoot.” This film isn’t for just shooting. For $3+ a shot, it should be a sure shot. The colors from this film are fantastic. This film definitely has a mind of its own sometimes, and you’re not going to get true to life colors. You’re also not going to get Polaroid colors. This film is definitely very unique, and I would highly recommend looking at The Impossible Project and Flickr website to see what kind of results others are getting from this film.
