Re: P.O.P and diginegs and babies

This is too weird--my grand daughter's name (born a week ago in between my classes in my home and both the midwife and I missed the birth it was so fast! or did I already say that onlist, I'm just toooo proud....) is Lela Grace. She's little enough to bathe in my alt process trays! JUST KIDDING, FOLKS...

Yes to Polaroid 55 film successfully in a pinhole camera--it was in a Polaroid 545i holder in both a 4x5 box pinhole and a 4x5 springback pinhole camera. Watch reciprocity, though. I use Polaroid to test exposure all the time in those cameras, mostly the color film type 59, though.

Bring sodium sulfite with you in the field--you can plop a couple tablespoons in a ziploc baggie and add a cup of water, if you want to clear them in the field.

Hi Folks,

Well after a disastrous summer spent (not)gum-printing, I have adjourned to the UK pending the arrival of new grand-daughter, baby Kate. Shortly thereafter, a somewhat longer journey to the Antipodes where my son and his wife are expecting baby Lilly Grace in Sydney in October. Assuming no further birthing or bombing incidents I should be back in Turkey by February which brings me to my Alt question. I intend visiting Cappadocia in spring, a terrain which lends itself, I believe nicely, to POP images. I have a couple of queries. Has anyone eve used Polaroid 55 film successfully in a pinhole camera? AND, will I be able to create digital negatives capable of printing well with Centennial POP? Any responses would be gratefully received as would any old baby clothes, money etc..
