Meet My Monster


Good day to you dear readers!

Today I would like to show you my latest acquisition to my growing camera family.
Meet my Polaroid Image 2 (known as a Spectra in some places)

This is a monster of an instant camera. A proper tank!
Thankfully it has a long strap attached to it so I can carry it on my shoulder.

This Polaroid takes 1200 film which is larger than your regular 600 type.
The film is not as expensive to get hold of and so at the moment it is a better deal.


Here are the 1st few shots that I took with my new friend.
Hope you like them

"Petticoat Lane"


"Leadenhall Market"


"Tree Tops and Cloud Streaks"


"Someone Else's Garage"

The film used in the above shots expired in 2007 but I like the extra wishy washy effect.

  4. The way you describe the size of the camera makes me think you wear it like a small purse... collecting photos the way one collects various knick-knacks and necessities that push a purse to be bursting!

    Tree tops and cloud streaks is probably my favourite (it reminds me of a beautiful sunny day here) but I do have to say, I like how polite that parking sign is! I wonder if it works?

  10. the photo of Leadenhall Market is great! I like the washed out effect from using expired film - I was surprised with the photos I got back when I used a 10 year old roll of film as well!

  16. Did this 'Monster' Polaroid appear in one of 007 movies? 'From Russia with Love' or 'On her Majesty Secret Service' ??
    The wishy washy effect on your pictures are really retro and moody..

  18. Man, we had some expired film lying around at work a few months back but my colleague chucked it after a few test shots because he didn't like the effect...I like how it looks in your photos though.
