Demonstration Videos

When Polaroid announced discontinuation of their film, I purchased a few packs and stored them away for a rainy day. Well, today it was raining, so I got them out and had some fun taking photos with them. Although this film expired almost 5 years ago, it still works OK. Here are a couple of videos demonstrating the use of the Polaroid 450 with the focused flash unit, and the Polaroid 350 with flash bulbs and the portrait kit.

Over the years, I've shown these cameras to younger people and they are always amazed that a real photo is produced in the end. For those of you who have never seen a Polaroid in action, check out these videos:

Lately, I've worked on converting pack cameras to use other types of film. This extends the life of these cameras, since they are still fun to use.
