When I have some free time, that's fine.

These films are kinda rare, kinda slow, and kinda funky. If you have any kicking around that you'd like to shoot and use, let me know and I can hook you up. (I also have the slide mounter and an old AutoProcessor if you're interested).
>> The PolaPrinter:
>> This is a device for printing slides (or other positive transparencies) onto Polaroid Type 100 or Fuji FP-100 film. I've fixed it up and got it working well with FP-100C (which is still in production!) though it seems to overexpose everything; I suspect it was set up for the rather slower Polaroid film.
>> Other gear I have in this department includes a bevy of integral film cameras, including a slightly-broken SLR680.
>> If you'd like to use any of this stuff let me know. I can hook you up with film.
