    Herman, thanks a lot - hartelijke dank!
    When I think about Polaroid I'm in a sentimental mood. Many years working for JVCs tape business I spent a lot of time with the Polaroid people. The meetings had been done in Enschede, at our office in Germany and one time per year in Cambridge/Mass..
    Good o'l times......

    From a friend I got two SX70 cameras, both are loaded with the packages from the Impossible Project and I'll hope that they get the breakthrough with this project.

    Thanks Bernd for your kind words. I have been working at polaroid in Enschede (The Netherlands) as an hardware engineer for some time. I was located there via a consulting agency.
    Unfortunately I don't have a pol camera...
    Maybe you can show us how pol images look like?

    Herman, the world is small.....:thumbup:

    during my visits in Enschede I was so astonished to see the workers smoking inside the huge manufacuring halls. They told me "don't worry, the production is lightless running inside these big black rooms, no smoke/light can get inside. This was totally the opposit to our clean-room assy lines for videotapes assembling.......

    At those times Mr. Hennie Speek was the dutch purchase manager, a very fair partner in our discussions. Pola was our OEM customer for VHS tapes under their brand name.

    Herman, you need no cam, only this little program:biggrin:

    As you I had no Polacamera during this time. The plastic cameras were sooo ugly and the SX-70 (Alading) was expensive - but at this time I had nothing with photography - only windsurfing in Zeeland (Brouwershaven and Zonnemaire).

    Cheers
    Bernd
