Here are some random uncategorized photographs I have taken earlier on. They are of nothing in particular.
I recently picked up a new old used press camera from a bookstore here in N.D.G. (Encore Bookstore), the large format 4X5 Graflex Crown Graphic. It still had the rangefinder and viewfinder accessories and was in very good mechanical and cosmetic shape.
I wanted to test it and remembered I had some Polaroid 72 4X5 instant sheet film in my fridge from 2006. I had two minor issues, the first issue is the sheet film having expired in February 2007 and the second being the possibility of the camera not working at all. I borrowed the Polaroid 545 instant film holder and went forth with trying the camera.
Lo and behold !! The camera and the film still worked almost perfectly !!
I finally chose the best out of the 4 shots I did. That was the end of the Polaroid 72 instant film sheets for me as they have been discontinued a few years ago.
Here’s the photo:
