    Re: film

    A Polaroid 500 back would loaded with polaroid film and inserted into a conventional back, If you can't get instant film, you'll need a few 4x5 cut film holders which you can load (in the dark or with a changing bag) and use.
    Enjoy your new camera!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
