don't shake it

Today is THE DAY!
What day, you ask? The day, my dear friends, that THIS GUY:


My dear old SX-70 land camera, purchased in college for $40 at the height of my Charles & Ray Eames obsession*, will finally be PUT BACK TO WORK.

How's that?

POLAROID FILM IS BACK!
The Impossible Project, who took on the task, has done the impossible and saved analog instant joy.


It's called PX SilverShade  / First Flush
Right now it comes in 100 & 600 ASA, and is only sepia and B&W but color is coming by the end of the year! The film is universal for any working Polaroid camera that uses the battery pack film (SX70s and 600s are the best).

Are you happy happy and full of joy?
I AM.
It's $22 bones for 8 frames but I don't wanna hear ya complaining.You can order it on their site starting today.


The darkslide comes with secret messages!
Before it develops, the film is YVES KLEIN BLUE!
It's delicious. I am high on life.

Time to make some magic.

THANK YOU IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT!!!!!


PS: *watch this movie!!!!

How are the exposures? Another blog I found shows the shots as all white or kind of ghostly...

Hello, I've read your blog a lot and its FREAKIN AWESOME
Anyway, in your main picture at the top of the page are you wearing John Fluevogs? Because those boots look pretty similar to John Fluevogs. And that's pretty awesome.
