Thanks Robert. Yes they are the prints scanned. I made these photographs within a few miles of my home in Galeton, PA located in the mountains of Northcentral Pennsylvania. Here's a youtube video someone made of Galeton.

Our own Dante was giving away free stuff to forum members, and I picked up a pack of FP-100c from him. Then got a 250 and heres my first results!



Everything went very smooth. No problems with the film pack jamming or anything! Hooked! Cheers Dante! (now I need a flatbed scanner!)

I have, in the past, occasionally used polapan land film and type 55 for art photography, but it occurred to me that I may not be figuring in materials cost into my pricing correctly. I don't have this issue with silver gelaten prints, or other fine arts mediums, but given the finaite nature of my small supply, I could use some input from other analog photographers who are activtily selling works in Polaroid materials.

Good to see that the new 4X5 peel-apart film by New55 is getting better and better. The stuff I tried back in the spring left much to be desired. Your print looks quite good. I may try a box again.

Polaroid 195 / Fujiroid. Bad v600 scan. I really need a better scanner.

My heart breaks for the discontinuation of the fuji pack film.

Ah man that sucks, but it makes sense with the way the film is now a days.

Funny story. The week after I bought mine Fuji decided to cancel the film. I paid high market price. A little over $500 and mine didn't even have a cover.

It was kind of heart breaking. Ive wanted the camera for about 4 years and never bought it. All that time I could of been shooting it for next to nothing. I think it was about a dollar a photo ($10-$12 per pack) when fuji was making it. Kinda kicking myself for procrastinating.

The crazy thing is, its still a better deal and easily better quality than shooting anything impossible project has. Even at the current pricing of fp100c ($20 a pack).

I wonder if fuji really did cancel it yet. There seems to be plenty of stock everywhere with fp100c.

I agree, it still has great value especially compared to Impossible Project films. Even if $2 a shot quickly adds up . I just got worried the camera would end up as a rather expensive shelf piece so I got rid of it before it got completely worthless.


I'll cry while I cheer if Fujifilm will continue to manufacture peel apart film.

Keep rockin that Polariod, mate!

I figure, c41 (lets say portra 400) cost about $8.00 for a roll. It cost me about $25 develop and medium size scans (richard photo lab). Not counting having to drive or ship the film in. Plus waiting a week to get it back. Thats about $1.00 a photo.

I dont mind paying $2 to be able to have the photo right away, plus an awesome 1 off print of it. Still seems like a decent deal. Impossible project not so much. Ive had several full packs where all the chemicals leaked and all the photos were bad, and thats $3 a photo. Although I do appreciate that they are doing it and Im sure they will get better with it as time goes.

I totally get the equation. If you develop and scan at home (automatic dedicated film scanner) it gets harder to justify the cost. But people witnessing the peel apart action is priceless. I always gave my prints away and scanned the negative. There's nothing like peel apart film. You got me looking at looking at prices now dammit.

Yeah, thats the path I'm on now. Working on doing all my own film, bw, c41 and e6. Just picked up a Jobo CPP2. Also working on getting a scanner. Looking at either a Nortisu LS600 or Frontier SP3000. The lab prices are just too crazy. I took in 18 rolls about a month ago and it was $400. I bought the Jobo for $600. The Noritsu is around $900 and the Frontier is around $1800. For all the film Ive taken to the lab I could of bought all that stuff twice for the amount Ive spent on film in just the last 2 years.

I just looked on eBay and theres a 195 for $325 starting bid. Guessing with the way the market is, no one will probably bid on it. B&H has fp100c for $20 right now even though their business practices are far from good. They are crazy racist and treat their workers like crap. I just bought a 5 pack off amazon and it came out to being $23.

Another scanner to consider would be the Pakon f135. A bit fiddly to set up but it's got nice Kodak colours and feeding it full length rolls is a dream. Although in the end of the day I'd pick the SP3000 over the Pakon.

Side note, I just bought myself a nice Polaroid 180 and 40 packs of Fp100c. A local store here in Sweden apparently decided that $15 a pop was reasonable.

I have a 4x5 Shen Hao, which I have not yet been able to use so far
I have a question for Donovan or some other expert willing to help.
If I buy a Polaroid 405 back it has to be loaded with Fuji FP 100c45 film?
Correct?
Is it compatible also with FP 100c film?
I see that B&H has no FP 100c45 film.
Is it because it is discontinued?
Regards
Paul

Both FP-100C and FP-100C45 are discontinued, though the smaller film was discontinued only recently and retailers are still selling remaining stock.

The 405 uses the smaller film (FP-100C).

Just got the Noritsu LS 600. Not sure if I like it just yet. Its pretty good but it highlights grain heavily. They didn't have the sp3000 or I would of went for it. Still might trade up for it. I think mine might be having some issues with temp control. Its under warranty though.

Thats awesome about the 180. Awesome deal on the 100c. Do they have any left at that price? If so PM me, Im willing to buy more, haha.

Thank you so much Oren!
Too bad. When I bought the Shen Hao, since I am new to LF, my idea was to practice and have fun with polaroids.
So I have to hurry up and buy the back and a stock of film!

I'm getting the SP3000 eventually, but I'm good for now.
And about the FP100C, I bought their entire stock unfortunately.

1st shot with Impossible 8x10 color. Cool stuff. A little tricky to load the holder for this newbie. Didn't get it quite right here.
