How to Use the Worlds Largest Polaroid Camera "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Back in its heyday, Polaroid made seven 2024-inch instant cameras, and only six of them are known to exist today. Marco Christian Krenn of Analog Things recently paid a visit to the camera found at Supersense in Vienna. In this 10-minute video, Krenn shows how this ultra-rare camera is used.

We get to see the chemistry pods and finely-tuned rollers in the processor, which, unlike mainstream Polaroid cameras, is separate from the camera itself.

The camera weighs over 235 pounds (107kg), and its film holder is huge.

After setting up some studio lighting, Krenn shoots a portrait using the camera and processes it by rolling the positive and negative papers and chemistry pods through the processor.

Peeling the papers apart, and voila! The photo emerges.

This is a Photographer Covering the Wildfires in California "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

As dry and windy conditions cause raging wildfires in California, there are brave men and women putting themselves in harms way to document whats happening and serve as the eyes of the world. This incredible photo by photographer Noah Berger shows photographer Justin Sullivan braving wind-blown embers while covering the devastating Camp Fire in Paradise, California.

The ongoing Camp Fire is the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the history of California. Since starting on November 8th, it has caused at least 42 deaths, burned over 125,000 acres, and destroyed over 6,500 buildings. By the end of its first day, it had essentially destroyed the town of Paradise, which had a population of over 26,000 people.

Berger and Sullivan were covering the fire together as it scorched the worn, and Berger captured the above photo while Sullivan, a staff photojournalist for Getty Images, went low to photograph a KFC restaurant burning down. Heres the photo that resulted:

Embers blow in the wind as a Camp Fire burns a KFC restaurant on November 8, 2018 in Paradise, California. Fueled by high winds and low humidity, the rapidly spreading wildfire has ripped through the town of Paradise, charring 18,000 acres and destroying dozens of homes in a matter of hours.

Berger is a veteran wildfire photographer, having covered a number of major fires in years past. You can find more of his work on...

This $23,000 Nikon DSLR Kit on the ISS Had a Delivery Fee of $130,000+ "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The astronauts onboard the International Space Station get new cameras delivered from time to time 10 Nikon D5s arrived in late 2017 after NASA ordered 55 of them. But did you know that its extremely expensive to stock the ISS astronauts camera arsenal? That camera kit you see above cost at least $150,000 to send to the space station.

This past weekend, German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst Tweeted photos of himself giving Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev a haircut in the Zvezda Service Module. That service module is where the stations Nikon gear is mounted to the walls, so Gersts photos provide the latest look at what camera gear the astronauts are shooting with.

In a discussion about Gersts photos on Reddit, Redditor ultrahello points out that it costs $10,000 per pound when delivering anything to the ISS.

This Photographer Found Money in a Photo "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

While some photographers are struggling to make money from photography, Romanian photographer Florin Kiritescu is finding money in his photos. Literally.

Kiritescu, a portrait and wedding photographer, did a photo shoot for a friend of his in a park this past weekend. While editing the photos today, Kiritescu zoomed in to 100% to see and work on the details of the shot.

Then, in the corner of the photo, he suddenly noticed something blue.

It looked like part of a Romanian bill, Kiritescu tells PetaPixel. Heres what the back of a 100 lei bill looks like its the second largest frequently used denomination in the country and is worth about $25:

So, Kiritescu hopped into his car, drove back to the park, returned to the exact same spot in the photo, and found the bill exactly where he spotted it under the tree.

This is how to make money from photography, Kiritescu says. Happy me!

I Bought the New iPad Pro So You Dont Have To "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Im no stranger to the iPad. In fact, it once caused me not to get a job at an Apple store shortly after college. I was asked in an interview, What do you think of the new iPad, and I answered honestly (mistake number one in a job interview I would learn).

Im not sure how I feel about it, it doesnt really do what I would want it to do.

I didnt get a call back for a second interview. Little did I know this would be the start of my rocky relationships with tablets.

In 2012, I bought refurbished a 32GB New iPad. With its retina screen, I told myself it would be the perfect portfolio alternative, and I could make myself look so cool by bringing a digital device to a client meeting, instead of a printed book.

Who prints photos anymore? Clients will see me as cutting edge!

That device currently is sitting on the floor next to my bed, unable to be updated past iOS 9, with a dead battery. I rarely use it anymore because of how slow it has become. And it certainly didnt win me any clients. I think I may have used it professionally once or twice to have someone digitally sign a contract or a model release.

When the first iPad Pro was released I found myself holding it and thinking, Wellit sure is big, before using the newly launched apple pencil to crudely draw a penis on it and handing it back to my friend. I still didnt see a good use for what was essentially a laptop without a keyboard.

Flash forward to 2017, where I found myself standing at the counter at my local Apple store looking at the three size options in front of me for Pro level iPads. I was sold (or so I told myself). I just needed to know what size fits me best. After a few hours of going back and forth with the demo models, I eventually decided to walk away. It just didnt hold up to the experience I was getting from my laptop.

When the 2018 Apple announcement of the new iPad Pro came through, I once again found myself enamored with the idea of getting a laptop replacement. I studied the keynote, watched every review video, and made an appointment with myself to visit the apple store as soon as possible to play with one myself.

This Short Film Was Shot Through the Viewfinder of a Hasselblad "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Heres a new short film titled Peripheral by freelance film photographer and cinematographer Casey Cavanaugh. An interesting thing about it is that the story is told entirely through the ground glass viewfinder of a Hasselblad 500C/M.

It was shot entirely through the viewfinder of my Hasselblad 500C/M via a custom mount I built, Cavanaugh tells PetaPixel. The story tackles the idea that perhaps wanting to document everything in your life will cause you to miss out on what is truly important.

Photographers often struggle with the difficult choice between putting the camera down and experiencing a moment fully versus picking the camera up and documenting the moment for a lifetime, so this short film may strike a chord with you.

Cavanaugh is the same photographer who recently built himself a DIY Hasselblad Xpan. You can find more of his work on his website, Instagram, and YouTube....
