Team Up!

Spring is here! I can tell because I’m sneezing a lot… like really a lot. haaaaaa-CHOO! Time to brush off the cabin fever (and 10 gained fatso pounds) and get outside and shoot some film. The latest test batch of 3.0 Impossible film has my hopes way up! It’s a great formula and another step closer to truly “instant” film. Seems there’s a lot going on with instant film lately. Fuji axed FP100c and Doc’s out in Japan saving it, 3.0 integral from TIP is unbelievably promising, Instax is making its way into theaters (saw one in Deadpool last night) and hands everywhere, Mint released their TLR70, and everybody’s got fingers crossed for the new Impossible cameras. So what’s going on with 2nd Shot…? As I mentioned in my previous post, and probably a few others, I’m looking for different ways to take this little camera gig for 2016 and I think I’ve found quite a gem.

I’m pleased/stoked/jumping up and down to announce that 2nd Shot has teamed up with Polaroid SX70 guru Roger Garrell, aka Fastcat99, to offer top-notch quality sales of Polaroid SX-70 cameras! Roger has been a huge contributing factor to keeping instant photography alive by offering SX70 sales and service to enthusiasts and photographers since 2003 with over 4000 satisfied customers globally. Hailing from Lake Orion, MI, Roger is a degreed Mechanical Engineer with 37 years of experience in the automotive industry. High engineering standards and fit and finish principles learned in the auto business are applied to Roger's work with Polaroid cameras. He’s an active amateur photographer and shoots with a Canon 60D DSLR, a Polaroid 250 Land camera, and a 35mm Stereo Realist camera. Roger's other interests include astronomy, travel, and auto racing.  Very very cool factoid (coming from a VW guy myself) he’s a retired amateur racer and is a High Performance Driving Instructor with the Porsche Club of America. Did I mention that he’s a helluva nice guy too?

All sales will be through the 2nd Shot site and inventory will be constantly changing so I’ll be updating social media when new cameras are available. Please refer to the blog for pricing and always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns and availability. Now back to this pile of “tested” Ebay cameras…. HAW!
