I had an old Polaroid Land Camera lying around that was broken. With some glue and a light socket it became a lamp. And with a LED-light inside it’s also very safe because it produces very little heat. Here are some pictures from the process:
OK, it’s not my favorite camera, but it’s close. (The 5d will always win this battle). The Polaroid SX-70 from the 1970’s is a great camera in many ways. It looks good, takes cool pictures and the pictures are printed instantly. All sounds very good except the film is radically expensive. 8 pictures costs about 24 dollars form The impossible project. And that’s not including tax and shipping. And the camera tend to break down. Therefore I now had to buy a new one.
Even though, this is not about the price or that the pictures sometimes turn out to be over/under-exposed. It’s about the feel of having to think through every frame you shoot. Now you can not just delete a bad photo. Or, wait. You can throw it out, but then it going to hurt the wallet.
