California Shows / Pack film fun

It has been an intense few weeks. I don’t have time yet to put up all of my Polaroid photography but will add what’s ready. I got my Land Camera 100 to work. Here is the first outdoor shot I got.

And now, on with the Polaroids from last week before the sessions.

Leroy of Hellbound Glory. Willits, CA. I am often blown away with the quality of pictures that come out of this Land Camera 100, the very first pack film film Polaroid. The Automatic [Edwin Land] Camera 100 was made between 1963 and 1966, retailing for a whopping $165. ($165 in 1963 had the same buying power as $1,225 in 2012)

Once I got back from the long weekend, I went out for some shots in the Virginia City foothills. I was excited to be carrying around a Spectra and two automatic pack film cameras.

I won an ebay auction for four polaroids. I was after a Land Camera 330 because it has glass lenses, but is otherwise very similar to the 320. Here is a crappy digital shot of my refurbished 330:
