SX-70 Marigolds
Camera: Polaroid SX-70 Photo Location: Homer City, PA ISO: 100 
Posted By: steamloco76, 01-01-2020, 08:37 AM

My first image of 2020 was taken at near minimum focus distance with my 1970 original SX-70 Polaroid Land Camera using Polaroid Originals SX-70 B&W film. First photo with this camera in at least twenty-five years. Scanned at 1200 dpi. Levels, and sharpness adjusted in Photoshop Elements 12 for MAC.

always interesting to see old cameras at work - just doing it shows how much we have progressed since then.

I think the photo resembles something made in the 1850ís. At least the image was useable, I hate to was $2.30 per shot film on the trash can.
