Polaroid 420

This is my new obsession. I found this old polaroid camera for $3.50 at my local thrift store. I've been wanting a polaroid camera that took the kind of film that you peel apart for some time, but just hadn't found the right one yet. I happened to have the film for the camera at my house leftover from some polaroid transfer experiments. I can't stop playing with it! I can't wait for more film to come from Amazon. Here are some photos from the where I work that I took on my lunch break.

The Polaroid-420 uses fujifilm FB-100b(or c) & FB-3000. This is a replacement for Polaroid 669. Since polaroid stoped making this film Fuji is the only option. I found a P-420 for $4.99 and tapped a 3v battery in it. BTW, you must put a battery in or the shutter will not work. I love the retro-ness of it and am amazed that film can still be founnd/ is still being made!
