Mission: Polaroid - Part 2 - Some problems

I continue my little blog for Polaroid 300 __
The problem: Flash. I’ve experimented two mode. First, I put my finger in front of the flash, but attenction, it is near the autofocus; For second I recommend, stay as far away as possible from the object and avoid reflective surfaces. Flash is powerful! It’s right, but at night maximum distance is 4 meters.

Another problem: sensitivity of films. 800 ISO. I wonder how I can do good photos during the summer day!

If a photo does not look good, don’t be sad, if you scan it, you can see many little details!

    800 ISO makes things problematic. But if it is overcast, you might be able to achieve some pretty results.

    @emperornorton of course, so I have many problems with snow and fog, few light
    @saidseni with lc-a can't you use a smaller aperture?

    No, I'm using it with the LC-A+, I can only change the ISO settings. I'm testing it and since they say 400 ISO for darker images, I didn't use the 800 and 1600 ISO. What I'm about to do! Thanks!

    @saidseni I don't know lc-a cameras yet, but I think it's an interesting experiment!!!
