Polaroid High Definition (35mm, 200 iso) User-Review

4

The last Mohican: I found this film really unexpectedly. Everything started that day when I discovered Lomography. I was browsing the lomography site and then in the shop I saw Smena Symbol. I somehow knew my parents used to have something like this camera, so I went down to our basement where all old stuff goes, and dug for it. After couple hours of hard searching I found it. Working and smelling fantastic! When I moved the the film advance lever I noticed the rewind crank moved too, meaning there is a film inside!

I had no idea what kind of film was loaded in it and how long it was sitting there, so I decided to shoot with whatever it was inside of it and after a couple of days shooting with the whole roll, I was surprised. Upon opening my Smena i said to myself: “What the hell!” There it was loaded a Polaroid High Definition 200 film. I have never heard that there was a 35mm film made by Polaroid.

It turns out that the film was expired at least 7 years ago and I was really lucky that after developing it that I still got results. The pictures came really lovely and with sense of oldness. I love that natural colours and grain. This film really loves light!

You should try this film if ever you find one. I’m so lucky to have found and tried this film on its state of anitquity.
