View Full Version : polaroid 195...
luckily happened upon a polaroid 195 and have been taking it through it's paces...pretty neat camera...i've been shooting mostly 665 with it, which is a beautiful, albeit slow as hell film if you want to print from the neg...anyone else shooting with one of these? lets see some pics? :)
lol, don't have one anymore. buyer lives in la, too.
I had one years ago. Beautiful cameras.
Shot a lot of 665 with it.
I also loaded single sheets of 4x5 film (mostly Plus-X if I remember correctly) in empty Polaroid film cassettes and used them in the 195.
whoa...wait....can u explain how you did that? load 4x5 film into it? :) that's one reason i was attracted to it...ability to shoot a larger neg without groundglass focusing ...
whoa...wait....can u explain how you did that?
I bought sheet film (I think it was 4x5 though there may have been a slightly smaller size) and, in a changing bag, loaded single sheets into empty Polaroid film packs.
I had to take the changing bag with me when shooting since the exposed sheet/pack had to be removed from the camera in the dark.
Cumbersome ... but it worked.
I did the same thing with some of the 400 series pack cameras after selling the 195.
