With what seems like everyone and their mother using an iPhone to make “fauxlaroids” it almost seems silly for me to actually carry around my recently purchased SX-70 camera and spend money on the last remaining stock of Polaroid film (which is getting damn expensive at about $6 a shot when you factor in the shipping from Hungary). Did I say “almost” silly… no “almosts” about it. I don’t think I’ve seen a Facebook photo update recently without the fake Polaroid treatment being applied.
1080P HD video, 12,000 ISO, 65 megapixles and on and on and on. Cameras are getting more and more sophisticated and advanced. So with all this technology available, what do I do? I go out and buy a Polaroid SX-70 from the 70′s that I can barely get film for.
