Blue with Yellow Accents Polaroid 600 Camera

Blue and Yellow Polaroid 600 Camera

The blue Polaroid 600 camera with yellow accents is one of the more modern version of the 6oo Polaroid cameras. It was made in the late 90’s to early 00’s. It has a plastic body that is a midnight blue in color with bright caution yellow accents in the shutter, “close-up” lens knob, and light management slider. This camera can sometimes be found in stock in my Etsy Shop or you can also find them on Ebay and in thrift shops. Since they are somewhat “newer” than a lot of other Polaroid Cameras they tend to be in good shape. The main problem that I tend to see when I get these types of cameras are stuck shutter buttons and broken straps, so check that out first if you are able.

Boston Marathon 2013 Tragedy

Yesterday I started off the day somewhat bummed that I had to go to work and that I really hadn’t thought about taken the day off to go see the Marathon. I have lived in Boston and Cambridge for over 6 years and have never gone to see it. I generally work for small businesses that never take the Patriot’s Day Holiday.  I guess it was a blessing in disguise for yesterday. My thoughts an prayers go out for the victims of the bombings and I hope that they find and bring to justice the people that are responsible.

In homage to Boston I am posting some photos that I have taken with some of my analog cameras. I hope to show the beauty and strength that this town possess and how it will continue to stand tall despite all that has happened.

Kickstarter: The Pop-Up Pinhole Project

The Pop-Up Pinhole ProjectThe time has finally come that Kelly Angood has resurrected her cutout pinhole camera project again! After having to cancel her first Kickstarter project due to the possibility of  legal action that might be taken over the design of her original camera, she has created a brand new design in the time span of less than a month.  Her new camera is called the Videre, and it is a medium format pinhole camera that she specifically created by keeping in mind the community of pinhole camera lovers in mind.

The camera will be a do it yourself kit that will be printed on to thick cardboard stock. You can then pop out all the pieces and assemble the camera yourself learning about the pinhole style of photography in the process.

The Pop-Up Pinhole ProjectThe delivery date for the camera is currently set for November 2013, so as she says herself it would make an excellent Christmas gift for budding photographers or students that are interested in learning about photography.

As a bonus for backers that purchase the kit, Angood is also working on a 35mm printout version of the camera to be available as a free printout around the July time frame.  This gives backers the ability to have 2 camera designs for the price of one.

If you would like to back her project you still can at her KickStarter page below:
