Polaroid proofing before digital
Way back in the time when photographers developed film and printed photographs using wet processes, I shot a lot of polaroids. On any shoot pro or promotional, I would always pull a “Roid” to confirm focus and exposure. I was also always doing snip tests on roll film and single sheets on 4×5 or 8×10.
Polaroid was our digital camera screen, the cost could add up quickly. Polaroid had a great product line of films. I could take my 4×5 Graflex and with a polaroid back shoot and get the output of a negative, transparency, or print almost instantly.
The SX-70 camera and film afforded Polaroid a place in consumer instant photography history. The SX-70’s image processing and the needed chemicals were fully encapsulated within the image container itself.
