If you want a real treasure look at the Charles and Ray Eames film for the Polaroid SX 70: http://youtu.be/4EdwmaQltHc

That's a gorgeous bit of video there. Thanks for sharing.

"Since 1947, Edwin Land and Polaroid have pursued a central concept, one single thread: the removal of the barriers between a photographer and a subject."

The ubiquity of the cell phone camera has delivered on Land's goal in a way unguessed at when the SX-70 came out.

Oh but the SX70 is much more fun to use. Creating an object like that, with the picture slowly appearing is much more magical...

Funny thing is, the Polaroid existed to quickly give you the image. No sending the film off to a Kodak lab for processing.
