All of it on the livingroom floor. Lot’s of Polaroid 664, Lot’s of Polaroid Sepia. A nice stack of Polaroid Image Softtone. A healhty amount of Polaroid 665. Okay stash of Polaroid 125i. Still some original Polaroid 600 left. Various oddities, and mixed 120 and 135 in the foreground.
I’m so “old” that I have been shooting film since before digital was around. I did take a three-year film-break around 2003, but returned with a vengeance. I experienced the magic of Polaroid around 2006 – before that time, it had been economically out of reach for me. And as my experience, knowledge and love for Polaroid grew, Polaroid itself declined.
I use almost all varieties of Polaroid-cameras, except roll-film and largeformat. My favourites is the SX70, SLR680, 190, 600SE and 340. I prefer the folding ones in whatever format, since they are easy to travel with.
Collecting cameras and film is for me about security, rather than a need for hoarding. It scares me that some day there might not be any type 100 (peel-apart) left anymore. Or that all SX70-type cameras are broken and gone. Okay, maybe it’s camera- and film-hoarding. But it is sort of rational.
I’m from Copenhagen, Denmark – that little part of cold Scandinavia, where our prime-minister shoots selfies with Obama.

here I come again (in your bag no.7 & 778). Here is my film provison.
On the left I have 35mm films: Kodak Tri-X, Tmax 3200 and Ilford HP5 for b&w; some cheap color negative 200 and 400 iso plus Agfa CT Precisa for color slides and Fuji Xtra 800 for color night shots.
On the center are 120 film rolls: Fuji 160 and 400, Kodak Ektar 100 for color negative, Kodak Tri-X (again) and Fuji Neopan Acros 100 for b&w, Provia 100 is my main choice for color slides in 120.
On the right I put the exposed rolls waiting to be developed by me (if b&w) or to be carry at the lab (color).
All of this films can be seen in my tumblr: http://robertonania.tumblr.com/
My modest hoard of films. Next step film mini-bar. I’m a 21 year old film shooter and this is all I can scrounge from my modest allowance, so I shoot slow and shoot to kill.
I just recently got those rolls of Shanghai GP3 for HK$20 each, can’t wait to run it through my TLR to see how bad/good it is.
