I find polaroids fascinating! My father said he had a Polaroid Land Camera 250 (from 1963). I immediately looked for film and a battery.
The battery holder was broken but it was easy to fix. So first look for a new battery. Unfortunately this is a special 4.5V battery that is no longer for sale anywhere. There are a lot videos on the internet to find out how you can replace three AAA batteries but I’ve been looking for the 4.5V battery itself Found it through eBay and delivered within a week.
There are still two beautiful films made for this series of Polaroid cameras, namely Fujifilm FP-100C (color) and FP-3000B (black / white). The so-called peel-apart-type. Fujifilm FP-100C is a professional “peel-apart” instant color film with very good performance under different lighting conditions. The film is of fine grain and rich tonal gradation.
Film Size: 85 × 108mm
Image size: 73 × 95mm
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Number of photos: 10 per pack
Battery; check, film; check! Finally we can take pictures! Woot Woot!!! Remember to set the camera’s ISO right before you shoot.
Once you have taken a photo pull very carefully the white tab from the camera. Take your time because if you do it wrong you won’t be happy! As you can see, not all went well with the first few pictures.
At a temperature of 25 C (Celsius) (77 F (Fahrenheit) this film needs 90 seconds for development. That’s not really fast compared to the FP-3000B (black / white) because that one needs only 15 seconds with the same temperature. So if you have an old Land Camera 100 Series than try the FP100C! If you want information about the battery, camera, or film send me a message.
This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!
For many years, Kenny had already been purchasing film and accessories from the Online Shop before he noticed our bustling community. Looking for a place to connect with people who share his passion for shooting on film, he immediately created a LomoHome and started sharing his stunning collection of street photographs.
My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
In a country admired for sublime vistas, Réhahn chose the parts sheltered from full view. He became friends with the people who till the lands, as well as the unknown archivists of the ever-colorful folklore Vietnam is known for.
It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
There are quite a lot of festivals to choose from every summer and for sure everyone has his favorite.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
