Mamiya RZ Polaroids

Mamiya RZ 67 Pro II Polaroid Photos (with Fuji FP100C Instant film)

Despite being a die hard Leica photographer I still enjoy medium format film photography such as using my Mamiya RZ 67 Pro II 6×7 camera.  I bought a Mamiya RZ polaroid film back so this year have been taking the occasional ‘special’ photo during model photography shoots (as a gift to the model to take away) or for wedding photography / event photography bookings.

I use Fuji FP100C film (gloss) (ISO100) so need good light to use the camera, either sufficient available light or strobist work using off camera lights.  I plan to bleach the film negatives when I get time, to scan, but so far have not had chance with wedding editing and teaching taking up a lot of my time.

 

Here are a few samples photos of what is possible.  Some of the images are an iPhone 5 photo of the original photo uploaded via Instagram to be shared on social media networks (most recent photos first):

Here is an example using the discontinued Fuji FP3000B Black and white film

And lastly here is my first Polaroid photo attempt using a Contax 645 + Fuji Instant FP100C (silk) – loaded incorrectly!  Silk film does not scan well and the 6×4.5 Polaroid size was too small to really bother with.

First polaroid test shot with the new Contax 645

 

I will do a separate blog post once I find time to bleach some Fuji FP100C negatives in the sink!
