BECK:I've always loved my polaroid cameras, and while I may not have managed to hang onto my childhood version, over the years I have given a guernsey to the varieties available at the local oppy to mixed success. While the pinstriped white 70's version boasts my favourite styling the 80's 636 model I currently favour has been just tops when it comes to picture taking. It was with this partikeler camera that I once started an overly ambitious (and hideously expensive) project aiming to take a polaroid picture a day for a whole year ... I think I got about halfway through February when I realised I could have afforded a new digital camera with what i'd spent on film so far... still there's nothing quite as exciting as the buzz and whirr of a polaroid photo as it exits your camera and I remain a big fan, if not also a big cheapskate.
RAMONA: I'm still using the same polaroid Sun 600 I got for my 13th birthday and despite being loaded down with all manner of new technology it was my trusty polaroid that I took on a solo walk through Venice a couple of years ago. Now remember I am not a good photographer and everything you point at there looks amazing but even I still consider these some of my 'best work' - maybe I am better off being square after all?
