Nifty post here from the Film Photography Project, tipping me to a piece of gear I had not seen: Polaroid’s slide printers. You slip your 35-mm. slide into a little slot, fire the shutter, and it’s printed on Polaroid (or, now, Fuji) pack film. It’s pegged to 100-speed film, so you are limited to Fuji’s color film or the out-of-production FP-100B, but if you’re doing this chances are you’re more interested in the process than in distinctions like that. Will keep an eye out for one of these printers–between the diminishing interest of slides and the diminished use of Polaroid pack film, I have to assume they’re not selling for a lot of money these days.
