Pam, you are much too kind. You and Peggy are the special people. I'm just an old man who was very lucky to meet the two wonderful Ipernity women in person.

... never had one, but even the great Ansel Adams used it to demonstrate, that the cam is only the tool of the photographer and exhibited once only polaroids (so I heard)

i'd forgotten that Ansel Adams used one. I'll have to look that up. Just saw wonderful documentary movie called 'The B-Side' about Elsa Dorfman who used the huge Polaroid camera 20x24.

A terrific present! My mum adored her old polaroid (a bit too much, it often got in the way of family events!). She hasn't taken a photo since those days; no digital or phone cameras for her!

There are a couple was to take instant photos these days. Fujifilm has some instant cameras. I believe they are all small format. Then if she still has a polaroid camera, you can get film for it now from 'the impossible project' impossible film can be found online and in some stores. the u.s. website is: i believe there is a european website for them as well.

A very good idea, Laura. Thank you very much!
I will investigate - because it might be just the thing for my mum!
I will let you know what I find out.

I didn't know you could still get Polaroid cameras, let alone the photo papers. You have fun and enjoy playing with them

raingirl club has replied to Jenny McIntyre club
As micritter says below, the cameras aren't "new", just new to me. You can, however, buy refurbished cameras from the impossible project (pretty expensive - i just search goodwill etc). and the impossible project has created new film for the cameras. kind of a renewal a bit like we are doing here on ipernity! i was in on the start up of the project in that i bought test film that helped fund them learning how to make their chemicals work well. i loved the test film, kind of sorry to see it go, but the important thing is that there is film for the cameras.

Thank you raingirl, and thank you all for your much-too-kind comments. I should explain that those were old cameras that I know I will never use again and they were just taking up room in my drawer. I knew from seeing her images that raingirl used Polaroid-type film, so she was gracious enough to allow me to reclaim some drawer space by accepting them.
