hi i really admire you! I just got this beautiful Polaroid Land Camera the J66 model and i was wondering if you knew it can be restored. idk if there is still film for it, but if not then i guess it would make a really cool room decor piece! thanks!
Haha thank you, I can’t say I’ve had any admirers before.
The J66 is a gorgeous camera no doubt. However it unfortunately takes Polaroid Roll film which was discontinued some time ago.
But fear not! Because of it’s enormous size and rather large lens. If you have some know-how, it can still live to shoot another photograph! By removing the rear and converting it to a 4x5 you could shoot sheet film. And, with the right adapter, even shoot Polaroid land film from it! Here are a few links with more information.
Just got the call from Blue Moon Camera. The lens board I had made for it came in today and the camera is all ready to go! Now I just need to put on one of the pieces of ground glass that I made and I’ll be all ready to shoot! Ugh, 4:30 needs to come sooner so I can leave work.
