Last fall in NYC, the two shops organized a picnic for any film and analog lovers to get together and hang out in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Probably 100+ people showed up and about three times as many cameras! It was a great time and I shot a variety of Polaroids that day as well as a roll of expired Plus-X Super 8 film to remember the event with.
As far as the variety of cameras, there were Polaroid Land cameras with peelapart film, Polaroid SX-70s, Hasselblads, Contax 645, a Mamiya 7, a WIDELUX, plenty of Lomography cameras, a Hasselblad tintype camera by Kevin Scott, a few odd 35mm cameras, and of course, my Polaroid 110B and my Nizo 801 Macro Super 8 camera. In the 110B I shot with expired Polaroid 669 peelapart film which is really lovely as well as some Impossible Project B&W 600 film.
It was really cool seeing the different cameras and chatting with everyone about film. Dave Bias of Film Ferrania (which is doing their best to recreate color reversal Super 8 film) hosted a small raffle for bags of film goodies from a ton of different film companies like Film Ferrania, BFC, Lomography, Polaroid Originals, Mike Padua, and tons of other little patches and what not. And of course no gathering of film photographers is complete without a group Polaroid from Nick McManus.
Enjoy the Super 8 film from the event below and looking forward to more film meetups in 2018!
