Finger Painting by OmahaNebraska Finger Painting by OmahaNebraska
I modded my Polaroid one step that takes SX-70 film to accept a 600 cartridge and to compensate for the 2 stops of exposure difference between the films I taped (yeah, I know) a Old Warming filter (vernon A 38)that came with my Super I camera to the lense. it fit perfect!

This one got tangled up in the rollers so when I got home I microwaved it and used a fork to pop the dye pockets and spread them around with my fingers.

now my microwave smells like death...and it just got cleaned out from my last batch of polas :crying:

Aha! You've been abusing your microwave again I see :spank:

Despite the smell you have to endure I do enjoy your microwaved polaroids.

!! another good reason I want them around.

I know so many of you girls and guys on dA that haven't used them but I think would make something gorgeous.

you should get an old 600 before it's too late :hug: if you need any advice or help you know you can always note me or something!

Man, I so hope I can get one! I'm (hopefully) buying really old cameras off Ebay, so I'll keep an eye out. Strangely enough I had a dream about taking photos and then I was noting you for help. It was such a lovely dream.

:lol:

aaaw!! a dream, how sweet :giggle:

you should check your local thrift stores or pawn shops :) on the inside of the camera, where you put the film, it will tell you what kind it takes -- look for one that says 600 or SX-70 :)

I'm going to buy one of Ebay! It's pretty cheap. I got a Brownie camera, so I am so thrilled. :D

I'm always checking out the pawn shops. They mostly suck.

Love this.
As soon as I saw the thumbs with the cracked borders, I knew what you'd been up to.
Microwaves are such fun.

Unrelated to photography, but have you ever put a bar of soap in the microwave?

:O

how the hell are these people figuring this crap out.

it's almost as cool as a polaroid. The first time I nuked one I freaked out. there were archs of light and popping sounds :crying: I thought i was going to blow the whole place up or something.

Yeah, I got a little nervous when I did a pola the first time.

Oooo another one to try is a cd!
but obvz a cd you don't want, cos it fries the crap out of it.

oh, trust me, CDs i don't like are probably in the billions.

that should not be hard to find.

I had horrible taste in music during my school years :fear: It's a shame I can't get my money back for all that crap.

might as well blow it up!

Oh man, you have to try it. The soap litterally grows 5 times it's original size.
It doesn't make any sort of difficult mess, it smells a little, but the result is absolutely awesome!

Also, you should try a grape. Cut it in half lengthways and put them together on a plate, touching where their stalk used to be. Turn microwave, but be ready to hit stop. It creates a huge bright plasma thing. It's pretty radical.

oh look, here's a youtube video, this guy cuts his grape differently, but you get the idea i think...

Where/what are the Ink/Dye pockets?

How does the image really get exposed into the film? Like how does it not expose any more once it leaves the camera? It it the electrical burst from the battery? Where is trhe power stored?
Huh?
HMMM?

BTW, I accedentally bought some Polaroid Spectra film. I don't have a camera the it will work with. Have any ideas on what I might be able to do with this?

Well, once it's exposed you can't do it because the rollers that enject it pop and spread them.

how they work exactly I don't know :O I have conducted some dissections and what not and can't figure it out.

To explain a bit better, the film was jammed in the rollers. so I had to open up the film compartment and pull it out which ruined the top piece of film, so when I got home I microwaved it and then the dye packs or whatever are in the bottom, you know where the big border thing is at the bottom? that's what its for! They have all the colors in there, once it's warm they just sort of squish out, i used a fork to just push it up towards the top of the frame and it all came out.

hope that makes sense :O

uhhmmmm get a spectra cam on ebay? lol

other than that you could do just this, pop the dye backs in them and make pretty pictures. microwave them...bury them in the backyard (SO COOL LOOKING!) for about a month,

just generally destroy them.

What would I get out of it?
I don't even have enough money to send something in the mail, otherwise I would buy a camera that works with this. I think I will hold onto it until I figure something out. Maybe I could sell it on ebay?

Keep it in the fridge if you're gonna hold onto it.
