The Land List

An Ongoing Project in Cataloging Polaroid Cameras

The Land List15th Anniversary?!

"From this evolved two theories. First, Land was correct to ignore conventional wisdom: he was teaching the American public, and by extension a world market, that the Polaroid camera was not a lifetime acquisition, but an evolving idea, an ongoing adventure, an exploration of technology." "Second, yard sales were invented to get rid of old Polaroid cameras."
Peter Wensberg, Land's Polaroid, p.178

What's New (02/09/2008):
Wow, just as I was working on updating some of the FAQ page info (and specifically some of the notes regarding film availability), I received some emails from site visitors with some depressing Polaroid-related news. So as not to keep you in suspense (if you haven't already heard about it), here is the bad news in a nutshell:

All Polaroid film products (including all formats of instant film) will be phased out by the end of 2009.

Yes, this includes all formats, from 600 integral film to 660-series peel-apart films, to 50-series 4x5 films-- all of them will be discontinued by the end of 2009. For more details, you can find a number of news items about it via Google News (for example), but here's a link to a Bloomberg news article: Polaroid to Exit Instant Film as Demand Goes Digital

Now, while this is certainly bad news to Polaroid fanciers, there are a few rays of hope that you should keep in mind:
- First: Don't forget that Fuji makes a line of Polaroid-compatible packfilms, so I'd assume those will still be in production. The Fuji instant films have generally had very limited distribution in the USA, but with Polaroid leaving the film market, one would suspect that this will improve.
- Second: In the meantime, Polaroid is actively trying to find a licensee to take over the production of instant film products, so it's quite possible that production of Polaroid film will continue under a new company.

What's New (01/17/2008):
Hey Hey Hey! I finally started doing some updates on the site! Yeah, yeah, I've said that before, but this time it may actually happen. I'm sure some of you out there will be glad to know that I finally updated the Film page to reflect all the films that have been discontinued the past few years. (There may be more of those still to update as far as that goes). Soon, I'll get the FAQ page updated with some new (and updated) content. I've also got some camera info updates in the works.
Hmm. While writing this, I realized that The Land List will be turning 15 this year. A lot has happened in the photographic industry in general the past 15 years. Polaroid Corp in particular has had a lot of ups and downs-- well, perhaps a few ups and a *lot* of downs. We've seen the incredibly rapid growth and maturity of digital photography-- what had been primarily seen as an expensive toy for most people has become the mainstay of the camera industry.
On that note, I've started putting together a new section regarding early Polaroid digital cameras. Digital photography seems to have become almost a forgotten part of Polaroid's product development history. As many of you know, for the past several years, all of the Polaroid-branded digital cameras (and other consumer electronics) you've seen in stores have actually been produced under a trademark licensing arrangment-- Polaroid Corp itself really hasn't had much (if anything) to do with the actual product designs or even their marketing. However, in the 1990's, Polaroid was actively involved in the development of digital photography, and some of the cameras they produced were actually fairly interesting for their time. For whatever reason, Polaroid Corp had a lot of trouble making a corporate transition to the digital era. So, while Kodak and Fuji have managed to survive in this new era of photography, Polaroid never really got there.
...However, as some of you know, some news last year indicated that one of the 'old' Polaroid Corp's last such development projects may be coming back to life and finally reach the marketplace. Back then, Polaroid was developing a new inkless themal-based color printing technology that they code-named "Opal" (along with a monochrome version called "Onyx"). Opal never quite made it into a product-- the closest I saw was a press release some years ago regarding a photo booth vending machine, but I don't know if it actually made it to market. Now the Opal process has been ressurrected under a spin-off company called "Zink". They announced and demonstrated a pocket-sized mini photo printer last year. Will we actually see it? I suppose time will tell..!

What's New (02/28/2007):
I've updated this page again to bring you two entirely unrelated Polaroid film news reports. I've got some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first? Let's go with the good news first:

SX-70 film is back?! Really?? Well, sort of. As many of you already know (and if you don't, check the previous few "What's New" items), Polaroid discontinued SX-70 Time-Zero film last year. However, apparently not everyone took that sad news sitting down. Indeed, some SX-70 fans decided to take matters into their own hands, and approached Polaroid Europe to produce a 'special' run of 600 film with a custom-altered emulsion designed to mimic the color balance and contrast of SX-70 Time-Zero film. The film is called SX-70 Blend film, and is available through Polanoid / Unsaleable (Europe and worldwide) and Lord of The Lens (USA)
NOTE: I have no affiliation with either of these parties, nor have I actually used this product (at this time at least); I'm providing this general information just because it may be of interest to other Polaroid camera fans. Please use the contact info found on those sites if you have more questions about this product or availablity.
Here are a few bits of general information that I am aware of and should help answer some basic questions that I'm sure you're asking yourself now (just as I was):
Q: Can I do SX-70 photomanipulations with this new SX-70 Blend film?
A: No. It's based on 600 film, and so shares the same lack of mallebility.
Q: Do I have to make any modifications to my SX-70 camera to use this film?
A: No. It doesn't require any changes to the camera, nor does it require any extra filters or other accessories. It's designed to be ready to use in any SX-70 camera. The film cartridge is SX-70 style, so you don't need to cut off any plastic tabs or use any cartridge loading tricks (like you usually need to do when using 600 film in a modified SX-70 camera). However, since the film is based on 600 film, the film itself has the same film speed-- ISO/ASA 600. To compensate for this, the film cartridge has a built-in neutral density (ND) filter to reduce the 'effective' speed to be like SX-70 film.
Q: Wait-- does that mean I could remove the ND filter and use this film in a 600 camera if I wanted?
A: Hey, I'd imagine you could. Perhaps I'll ask if anyone's done that.
Q: So, what's the deal?? Isn't this just regular 600 film in a custom package with an 2-stop ND filter stuck in in the film cartridge opening?
A: No, not exactly. I don't know all the details, but I have confirmed with Lord of the Lens that it does indeed have a different chemistry than regular 600 film. There are some sample photos on the above web sites that illustrate the differences in color response and contrast between 600 film, the new SX-70 Blend film, and the old SX-70 Time-Zero film. In general, SX-70 Blend film has higher contrast and an emphasized blue range similar (but not identical) to that of the old SX-70 T-Z film. So if you really like the SX-70 "look," and don't care about photomanipulations, this may be a good product for you.
Q: Can't I buy this SX-70 Blend film from Polaroid directly or through my local camera dealer? I don't even see this film on Polaroid's web site.
A: This film was made by Polaroid Corp, yes, but it was a custom run made specifically for (and financed by) the folks at Polanoid.net (note the spelling!) and so is not a regular Polaroid catalog product. I might also speculate that as such, Polanoid and Lord of the Lens are almost certainly taking a significant financial risk on this venture, so I wish them best of luck in this project.
Anyway, it's an interesting product idea, and it's nice to see that there are enough motivated Polaroid SX-70 fans out there that such a product even could be possible. [ Hmm... Perhaps I really should approach Polaroid about making a custom run of Type 47 or 42 film... :-) ]

I did mention that there were two news items, right? Now for the bad news:
A Sad Day For 'Squares': Just three short years after its "re-introduction," it appears that the 80-series 'square' packfilm format is going away again, this time for good. I hadn't even noticed until a reader pointed it out to me today; indeed, it has already happened-- as the Polaroid web site points out, the 80-series films are all being discontinued "within the last 3 months of 2006", so if you want to stock up on some 80-series film, you better get it now while you still can...
I guess Square Shooters never win after all.

>>In other news, assuming you're still reading this stuff: I'll probably regret this, but now I'm going to link to a page for an unrelated 'project' page I originally wrote a few years ago but never before put up for public consumption. It's called The Adventures of Grammar Repairman. This really started as a sort of private joke. Every so often, I encounter something online that is just *riddled* with glaring grammatical errors, but is otherwise fairly well thought out. [Of course, you're probably thinking the same about this very web site. Or at least the first part of that sentence.] Anyway, check it out if you dare or care. I'm kinda wondering how long it will take for someone to find some embarrassing grammatical errors on that page.

What's New (01/18/2005):
Another Polaroid news bulletin: As several observant visitors to this site have emailed me (and I keep forgetting to post up here), SX-70 Time Zero isn't the only Polaroid film product now heading for the chopping block. According to the Polaroid web site, Type 665 film will be discontinued "within the first 6 months of 2006 due to the phasing out of components used in this film." Not surprisingly, its 'square'-format brother, Type 85, will be gone as well (unfortunate, since Type 85 was introduced scarcely two years ago). What is surprising, however, is that Type 55 (the 4x5 sheet-film version of this film) will still be in production. ...Which seems rather curious, since Type 55 is essentially the same film in a different format, yet Type 665 is supposedly being discontinued because its material components are being phased out. So, who knows what's really up with that.
Anyway, for those of you out there who are fans of Type 665 (and its nifty ability to produce high-quality instant negatives), you might want to stock up your refrigerator before it's too late. Fortunately, Polaroid B&W film keeps particularly well in the refrigerator, and should still be perfectly usable years in the future. Since Type 55 will still be around (at least for now!), that's also a viable option. Of course, if you don't already have a 4x5 camera (and Polaroid 4x5 film holder), that means you'd have to invest in some new equipment. I'll elaborate on this topic if there's interest, but if you're looking for an easiest-and-cheapest solution, your best option is probably to find yourself an old 4x5 press camera (such as a 4x5-format Speed Graphic / Crown Graphic, or B&J Press) and a used Polaroid #500 or #545 film holder. (See my FAQ page for an important caevat about the #500 holder though!) I also know that some folks have converted old Polaroid Pathfinders to accept 4x5 backs, so that's another option.

What's New (10/12/2005):
My stack of "Updates I Should Make" for this site keeps growing, and someday I hope to get around to it. :-)
However, today I learned of some news related to the world of Polaroid that I felt was important enough that it should be put up here in as timely a manner as possible. If you're a fan of Time-Zero film and/or SX-70 cameras in general, be sure to read the announcment currently found on the Polaroid Corp. web site at: http://www.polaroid.com/sx70
Following is the main part of the English version of the notice: "Please be advised that Polaroid will be discontinuing the manufacture of its SX-70 / Time-Zero film within the first 3 months of 2006 due to the phasing out of components used in the production of this film. We realise that this is disappointing news for our loyal SX-70 users and we would like to underline that, although the circumstances made it inevitable, it was not an easy decision. We are very sorry for the inconvenience."
:-(   Well, I know that a lot of SX-70 artists aren't going to be happy about that. Sure, there are ways of using 600 film in an SX-70 camera (some are even outlined the Polaroid.com web page accompanying the announcement), but that's not going to be a viable solution for many people. I do wonder if Time-Zero film would have been discontinued long ago if wasn't for the evolution of 'photo-manipulation' techniques that photographers and other artists devised around the distinct characteristics of this film. Interestingly, the same mallability that transformed Time-Zero film into a hand-craftable art medium was originally considered by Polaroid to be one of this film's deficiencies-- an engineering problem that was finally solved with the research and development that went into 600 film.
Then again, to borrow a couple of common maxims:
"One man's meat is another man's poison"
"That's not a bug, that's a feature!"

What's New (09/10/2004):
Actually, there's not a lot new here right now (though the FAQ has a few updates), but I figured I'd plug a future project while it's still timely. (drum-roll) First, there was The Land List. Then came In Living Portacolor. Now, coming soon to the Whirled is yet-another product-specific virtual museum-- The Radaranger Lookout Post! Right now, it's just a placeholder page illustrating the preparation of corn-on-the-cob ala Amana Radarange. Bon apetit!
If that weren't enough, other Whirled projects you might see at some point in the vague future include...
Phonografun: A collection of odd (and not-so-odd) novelty phonographs. For example, one of the items in this picture
is actually a phonograph designed to play full-size 45s or LPs (though does so very badly). Can you guess which one?
Classic Computer Battle! Canon Cat vs. Cambridge Z88: Two people. Two visions. Two computers. Two user interfaces. Two 'modeless' office productivity programs. Two marketplace dead-ends. Can there be one winner?

What's New (06/04/2004):
Various minor updates have been made to the FAQ and the Non-Polaroid Instant Cameras pages-- including some photos of (and commentary about) the KMZ Foton. I've also added a few new camera images scattered about the regular Camera Listings pages. Also, in response to the increasing number of queries I receive about how to safely remove old grime (or yard-sale price stickers) from old Polaroid cameras, I've added a new "HowTo" page on that general topic.

What's New (12/29/2003):
"Polaroid Says It's Hip To Be Square..?"
I don't generally comment much on Polaroid product introductions on this page, but (now that I finally got around to updating my Film Listings page appropriately) I thought it might be nice to highlight some additions/changes made to Polaroid's line of peel-apart packfilms a few months ago, for they might be of special interest to classic Polaroid camera owners.
For one thing, you may have noticed that the 80-series ('square'-format) packfilms had long appeared to be increasingly on the Polaroid "endangered species list", especially in the USA. When was the last time you saw 80-series film in stock at your local camera store? Even a lot of the large mail-order stores stopped carrying them. Type 87 film actually disappeared from Polaroid's USA web site years ago (and presumed discontinued), and Type 88 was often hidden away on the site, separated from its more glamorous rectangular-format bretheren. However, it appears that Polaroid has just had an abrupt change of heart for the lowly square-pack. Like a phoenix, it has been reborn, stronger than ever-- this time as a new product line consisting of not just two, but
five different films, and even a re-designed OEM film back. Now Type 88 and 87 have been joined by three new "pack"-mates-- Types 84, 85, and 89. Yes, that new Type 85 is a 'square' equivalent to Type 665 positive/negative film. ...And Type 89 is based on the all-new Type 690 film. Even plain-old Type 88 is now based on Type 669 rather than the creaky old Type 108 film emulsion. Also, like all the new 80-series films, the 'improved' 88 will now have 10 prints per pack rather than eight. Square Shooters of the world rejoice, for you can once again be bathed in the flash of a blue Electric Zip.
Speaking of the new Type 690 pack film, I've received several emails from people who have tried it, and most have generally regarded as the best color instant pack film Polaroid has ever made. Not only does it have even better color rendition than the previous champ, Type 689, but the chemistry is apparently now almost "self-timing," much like Polaroid integral films. In other words, no longer do you need to keep a close eye on your watch to make sure you don't overdevelop the film. This in and of itself is perhaps the biggest single technological improvement to reach Polaroid pack films in quite some time.
In any case, the resurrection of 80-series film has nothing to do with some sudden empathy at Polaroid for owners of 30-year-old plastic Square Shooters. What Polaroid is really doing is re-positioning this film as a more efficient/economical format for use in film backs for professional medium-format cameras-- one application that has likely (so far) had a somewhat more minimal impact from digital technologies.
Now, (*heh heh*) if only we could come up with a plausible new market for the old 40-series format... ;-) C'mon, Type 49 film? Can't you just see it? :-)
  [ *rrring* *rrrring*  "Hello? Is this Polaroid Product Development? Um, haven't you noticed that deckle-edged prints are coming back in style? No? How about prints with a big triangular-shaped tab on one side? You haven't seen that either? Well, trust me-- they're considered really arty these days. My point? Oh, um, well, I think Polaroid needs to take advantage of this new, um, 'trend' by re-introducing 40-series roll films, and perhaps even introducing a new camera for that format, let's call it the Model 950. Doesn't that sound great?   *click*   Hello?? Hello??" ] Oh, well, maybe I should have said "Model 110C" instead.

What's New (11/16/2003):
After much delay, I have finally (!) crunched the numbers on my Serial Number Project, and have updated the Cameras -> Rollfilm and Cameras -> Packfilm pages with my first preliminary set of estimated production numbers. See the Note following the Key to Symbols at the top of those two pages for some quick tips about how to interpret these numbers. I will update my Serial Number Project page in the near future with more details about how the numbers were determined (for those interested in such things), but I wanted to have something to put up for now. You may be surprised at the relative production numbers of some models. Some may be surprising simply because they're not surprising. Heh.

What's New (09/16/2003):
First, some shameless self-promotion: Searching the Google News archives, I see that my original (text only) incarnation of The Land List made its debut on rec.photo on Sept 10, 1993. Looks like I missed the 10th anniversary by 6 days. :-) Also, I see that the hit counter on this page has recently ticked over the 150,000 mark. Thanks to everyone for their support over the years!
In other news, remember the Serial Number Project that I started here about two years ago..? Well, it has been a while indeed, but little by little, the log of collected serial numbers has been sloooowly growing, and is finally reaching the point where I think I can make some fairly useful production estimates (or at least 'guesstimates') for many Polaroid rollfilm cameras and folding packfilm cameras. I probably won't be ready to "publish" the findings for a few weeks, but I felt a 'teaser' was in order. Also, I'd like to encourage anyone who wasn't previously aware of the project to use the form on that page to send in the serial numbers from any cameras on that list that they own. Remember, every data point helps! Thanks to everyone for their help.

What's New (05/29/2003):
It's been a while, but finally some new updates are coming to The Land List! Right now, I've added a few new items to the FAQ page, and added some content to the Cameras-Packfilm page. There should be some more stuff added in the weeks ahead.
In other parts of the Whirled, my In Living Portacolor pages got some major updates last month (look for the new Not-A-Portacolor page in particular), and I'm starting to assemble together another new "mini-museum" page which will feature some oddly-designed portable phonographs. More about that later.

What's New (12/12/2002):
Lots of updates these past couple of weeks, including a number of corrections and informative tidbits sent in by site visitors. Thanks to everyone! I've even updated the credits page. :-)
Also, to coincide with the addition of the new More! navigation page, I've added a new 'feature'-- namely the Polaroid Advertising Archive page. Have fun!

What's New (08/02/2002):
Another old 'cobweb' in the corners of this site is finally getting some badly-needed cleaning! Yes, it took long enough (about 3 years!), but I'm finally updating the Non-Polaroid Instant Cameras page. Sheesh! This is actually 'Phase 1' of what should be a complete overhaul of that section.
In other news, (in case you care) the 'hit counter' for the main Land List page (the page you're reading right now) finally reached the 100,000 mark in recent weeks. Thanks to everyone for their support!
This got me thinking, though. The Land List (including its original, non-Web incarnation) is approaching its 10-year anniversary. (!) Perhaps you've noticed that while this site contains plenty of product information, there has never actually been any product for
sale on this site. Is there any merchandise (including merchandising items) you'd like to see available here? ...Would you actually buy any such products here if they were available? I'd be interested in your comments.

What's New (05/27/2002):
Lots of small changes here and there. I also added a new "Mini-FAQ" page which will replace the mailto: links on some pages. This should help direct attention to the existence of the main FAQ page, which may otherwise be overlooked.
Also, I've added a Legal/Privacy info page. Yes, it seems like every site has one of those these days. I tend to look for them too. So, here's mine. It's sort of a work-in-progress for now though.

What's New (02/04/2002):
Okay, so it wasn't in the "next few weeks," but here's the start of a new Using a Polaroid Rollfilm Camera HowTo page. Yes, a Polaroid rollfilm camera user guide seems almost academic at this stage in the game, but I do get asked about that from time to time, and I thought it'd be a nice idea.

What's New (12/14/2001):
Various minor changes have appeared from time to time in the months since August. I have now added a few new questions to the FAQ, as well as a new HowTo page about Close-Up Kit Substitutes for the Model 180/195 Cameras. Another new HowTo page will probably appear in the next few weeks.

What's New (08/07/2001):
Made several minor updates to some camera and film descriptions.

What's New (05/28/2001):
The FAQ hierarchy of pages now includes a new Serial Number Info page. However, right now, it's a bit meager in terms of depth. Even so, I'm placing it on the site, as it relates to a little project I've been wanting to launch for a while. The project involves gathering serial numbers from as many rollfilm and folding packfilm cameras as possible in order to try to estimate production runs and other statistics which are otherwise unobtainable. You can help out by visiting the S/N Data Gathering Project page and submitting the serial numbers from any such camera that you happen to have. It's painless, and if enough folks pitch in, perhaps in a year or so we'll actually be able to generate some useful statistics out of all this!

What's New (05/24/2001):
Believe it or not, the Film Listings page has been updated for the first time in (almost exactly) four years. (!) It has been completely overhauled, and contains considerably more information. In fact, in terms of HTML text size, it's close to 5 times the size as the old page. It also now has image links like those found elsewhere on the site. Speaking of images, the image links there and on the camera pages now open in a separate window. If you leave the 'link' window open and continue to click on image links, they too will open in that same window. Hopefully this will be more convenient without being more annoying.
In addition, a few additions have been made to the camera listings pages, and the new navigation bars (and other navigation improvements) continue to be phased in.

What's New (05/04/2001):
Regular visitors here may notice some major changes to the navigation bars found on various pages on this site. Hopefully, they'll help make the organization (or lack thereof) of this site a bit less confusing. I'll probably tinker with the style a bit as I phase them in, but even now it should be an improvement over the old, static, navigation bars.
Also, the Accessories List page has been updated for the first time in over 18 months, and (finally!) starts to include image links like those found on the camera pages. More acessory images will be added as time goes on.

What's New (04/26/2001):
For the first time in about 2 years, the Battery FAQ page has been updated. Also, the less-than-obvious Alphabetical Camera Index has been relocated to a more prominent place, as it is now incorporated with the main Camera Listings page. With all the new camera images that have been added to this site in recent months, I've started to wonder if the image links might be more convenient if they were to open in a new window. While I'm not of the opinion that web sites should assume that I really want new windows popping up when I click a link, I thought I'd give it a trial run on the gallery update page. Let me know if you think it's annoying (or not). If you leave an image window open, all the subsequent image link clicks should open in that same image window, so you shouldn't have to worry about your desktop being flooded with new browser windows.
In other news, the 'hit' counter for the main Land List page (the very page you're reading right now) has just hit the 50 thousand mark. Not exactly a big deal in the great scheme of things, but not so bad considering that while the first 25,000 took some 3 years to achieve (from the point when I first started keeping a hit counter), the second 25k only took ten months. Thanks for visiting!

What's New (03/23/2001):
Even more image updates...

What's New (03/21/2001):
Lots of pictures, that's what. Some two dozen camera images have been revised or added. If you're really curious which ones changed, you can take a look at the gallery update page under the heading for 3/21/01. In particular, I've concentrated on replacing all those old and/or out-of-focus and/or poorly color-balanced images linked from the rollfilm camera page. Whew! Oh, and a few listings have been updated as well.
Speaking of images, recently I started kicking around the idea (again) of putting up some scans of various old Polaroid advertisements. Some are really quite interesting, and they help demonstrate the evolution of not only Polaroid cameras, but the public perception/image of them as well. The problem, however, is that I'm not sure how to handle the copyright issues of providing such material here. We'll see.

What's New (01/12/2001):
By popular demand (?), there's a new "How-To" page detailing how to replace the Ni-Cd battery in a #365 flash. There are also several new/revised camera illustrations for International-model pack cameras.

What's New (12/09/2000):
Made a few minor changes to a few camera listings, along with some added camera images.
Incidently, some of you might be interested in a new (but much, much smaller) work-in-progress of mine. It's In Living Porta-Color -- The Story of the Color Television Design That Wouldn't Die.

What's New (10/13/2000):
I've started a couple of camera model "timeline" pages. These are pretty simplistic right now, and only cover rollfilm and packfilm cameras, but should provide a way to help see the progression of camera designs through Polaroid's history. Right now, it's a text-only table, but I may rework it as a fully graphical diagram sometime in the future.

What's New (07/05/2000):
Added or revised a number of camera illustrations.

What's New (06/30/2000):
Made several updates to the FAQ page, as well as some minor expansions to some of the descriptions in the rollfilm camera page. By the way, I see that the 'hit' counter for the main Land List page has gotten beyond the 25 thousand mark! This might almost sound impressive, except for the fact that this particular counter has been running for almost three years. :-) Then again, I see that the hit frequency has been increasing at an almost exponential rate-- almost two thousand hits alone are from just this past month, for instance. Yeah, well, it's still not much to brag about (perhaps I should just shut up while I'm ahead!), but I'm glad there are at least a few other people out there interested in old Polaroid cameras. :-) Thank you all very much for all your support!

What's New (05/24/2000):
Thanks in part to my new digital camera, new images linked to on the Camera Listings pages will now be improved both in quality and quantity (at last) ! [I started phasing in the new images in late April, so you may have noticed some of them already; the new images bear a copyright 'stamp'.] Image updates will probably be fairly random, though. Also, I hope to start adding image links to the Accessories List page in the next month or so, as none of the accessory entries have had illustrations on the site so far. By the way, if you're actually curious about finding the 'new' camera pictures since the last time you visited, you can check this gallery update page.
In addition to the new images, I've expanded some of the camera descriptions a bit, and have added a new navigation aid to the packfilm cameras page. I'm planning to add a similar 'pictorial outline' table to the other camera listings pages eventually, but this one will be the most complex. Also, I'll have to see if it's really useful or just adds unnecessary graphics to the page. (this may evolve into a camera timeline or something in the distant future, as far as that goes).

What's New (04/20/2000):
The rollfilm camera conversion page has been revised, and now includes a 'gallery' of cameras (two, so far) actually converted by visitors to this site.

Hey Hey! Thanks to a new domain name, now you can also directly access this page as www.landlist.org
NOTE: There's no need to change your bookmarks though, because it's simply a web forward. My email address stays the same too (though mail to mkuhn at landlist dot org should get forwarded to me anyway). ...not that anyone will care, mind you, but I thought it'd be fun to create a web banner 'ad' for the Land List now that it has its own domain. Don't worry-- it won't actually appear on the Land List home page-- but you can see your choice of static or animated versions. [the only animated gif to be found as part of The Land List pages...] Of course, you may use these banners for the purpose of web links to this site if you like.
