This is not a comprehensive repair guide for the Lomo LC-A but I present only the techniques that I used with my camera. For information on various types of failures of the Lc-a see the Lomo Repairs group on Flickr.
Tutorial authors know that very often would be useful to have a third hand to be able to take pictures while hands are busy. As a workaround I created for my Nikon D5100 digital SLR camera a foot pedal.
Polaroid SX-70 cameras are great but now are 30 years old and so it is obvious that start to
deteriorate. With this post I
can not explain how to repair any failure of the sx-70, but I
will discuss one common defect, which I personally found on
my two cameras. I put a new pack of
film, close the door, the motor starts to spin making noise, no picture
is ejected, and the motor does not stop until I extract the
cartridge or until the battery runs out. The problem can also occur suddenly after shooting few pictures. However,
looking around the internet I found some valuable information from a
Flickr user, Redlomo, in a discussion that explained the steps needed
to fix the sx-70. Following
this advice I managed to fix both my sx-70 and, to make life
easier for those who want to try on their own, I tried to film the second repair in order to make available this tutorial.
the photographers who use Polaroid films the most famous is Maurizio
Galimberti. His portraits are amazing and you can admire them on his website.
Just to be clear: to shoot like Galimberti you need study, smartness, creativity and sensitivity, and a real artist should still try their own way. So there's no surprise to see Maurizio Galimberti showing his technique. Galimberti
actually works with many techniques, but probably the best known is
that of the Polaroid "mosaic".
Everybody knows that the first stocks of Polaroid-compatible film produced by
Impossible Project suffers from an annoying problem: when the camera eject them they are still too sensitive to light and therefore there's the risk of ruining them.
