Polaroid SX-70

My darling husband surprised me with a Polaroid SX-70 for my birthday.

This is a mighty machine that I've been drooling over for much of the past year. Most people know that Polaroid has ceased production and you can  read my friend Jay's thoughts about it. So not only does this camera need to be modified to fit a different kind of Polaroid film, even that is hard to find and pricey! (We're talking $25 for a 10-pack of 600 film).

Despite all of this, I have fallen in love. I am slowly getting a little better at my exposures. To see some of the ones so far, check out my new set over at Flickr. For more amazing SX-70 goodness, check out the SX-70 Flickr group. Maybe someday I'll get the courage to submit one of my own.
