    John McCann, Director of Vision Research and a close associate of Polaroid Founder Edwin Land describes the process of creating the film for the 20x24 camera. Commercial peel apart film had clean edges by virtue of a mask and rail system. This system was attempted on the much larger 20x24 sheets but soon was deemed too impractical and expensive. In the end, Dr. Land had the solution.

                Ok, this is the first in a long (hopefully) series of videos of Tia (and a few others) to show what you can do with a little imagination a bit of creativity and a great model. Most of this blog will now focus ( bad pun) on cheap plastic cameras plus a few vintage pieces. This first video is a tester as there is a technical error in it (its easy to spot) I'm still trying to get used to Premiere Elements so the next videos will be better produced (is that proper grammar?) more on the blog www.nineteen68.co.uk

                    Despite the deep and complex chemistry of analog instant film, with new meaning, it has returned to our lives. Turning light into images, if not ingenious, is then the simple joy of watching magic develop.

                      The Impossible Project just released an amazing new black and white film for Spectra cameras. I got a chance to try doing emulsion lifts with it and discovered some interesting things. This photo was about a week old, and the chemicals dry ROCK solid. The clear plastic on top of the photo peeled off before anything! I got the emulsion to float off of this with regular warm water, but the chemicals are NOT budging. I've tried rubbing under running water, warm water, soaking in warm water, brushing under boiling-temperature water (which is what you see here) and nada. After a long soak in the boiling water, I was able to partially rub off part of one corner. The ONLY thing that finally removed the chems was adding a very generous amount of bleach to the water - chems are now mostly (not completely) gone, but the negative is pretty much wrecked.
