We have to say that at heart we are Analog folk and so now we bring you new Fujifilm Film . Even though we have our fair share of digital compacts, iphones, and now even a Nikon D800 in our collections when we want to ‘Really’ capture a scene or portrait we think Film still triumphs. And although Digital photography has struck a few blows in it’s Analog older brother we think there is room for both in this world.
Today we take a look at a camera that is a Classic in all senses of the word, the Polaroid SX-70. It took a further 25 years since Polaroid’s release of it’s first instant camera, the Land Camera Model 95 to get to the SX-70. Previously instant cameras had relied upon complex techniques and instructions in order to obtain a usable ‘instant’ photograph but when Polaroid founder Edwin Land stepped up at annual company meeting in April 1972 with his new camera he was about to change the course of photographic history. He immediately proceeded to shoot and print 10 images in just five seconds much to the amazement of those present.
We’re very excited to announce that although we’ve been very quiet over the last month or so we’ve been working on a lot of new goodies for you all!
First up we have a whole range of new products coming to the HolgaDirect store starting with this very cool new film being produced by our friends at Revolog.
