SX70 porn

Somehow I had the feeling to blog again today! Yes, I know! It has been a while. Somehow the motivation I had at instant addicts is gone. But I stop crying now and tell you something about camera porn. Simon and I, we are really no great fotographers. At least he isn't. And most time when we work together, we are drunk, but! but!  our biggest fun is building, cutting, destroying and sometimes repairing cameras. Shortly before Christmas when we finished our 110-SE-mods I started the idea of a perfect SX70 set. Some time ago, perhaps more than a year, I built my first f8-SX70. This is a really nice and special camera but you always have to use a flash (the bigger the flash the better). This time I tried the opposite, avoiding flashes as long as possible (and it was/is quite simple).
Motivated by mints SLR670 and unmotivated  by its price I took one of my Revue models and started collecting stuff. I wanted to use the PX600 and PX680 in it. I used the first one very often with pretty strong yellow and red filters but was always stressed when I was too lazy for adding a filter or didn't want to use a filter at all. But anyways, the filter-set went in the bag, also some 600-films. The filter holder is the reason I'm not using a SX70AF.
just look for filtes which fit in the holder

I added the magnet ring of a slr680 to use the crappy crappy 2.0 lens (which is so crappy, it's awesome again).
who needs sharpness?

Also a small tripod was added and the tripod was also the reason I am using my revue. All my other SX70s don't have a tripod stand but since selfie is word of the year and I have a self timer and a remote control cable I of course need a tripod with me!
"where's my body?"
Now I removed the face of this good fellow, cutted it a little bit so it fits to my revue and removed the ND-filter. I got this idea some years ago by Noah Kolb (dude your homepage is down so I couldn't link it). With the reomved ND-filter the camera acts faster. Thus you can use the 600s-impossible series with some aperture control. Also the 600 film is awesome with the weak weak crappy crappy mintbar on it. So, with a SX70 film inside I use the camera as always and by night I put an awesome flash bar on it.

"I like my new hat"
The 600-film gives me three options
- original face and flashing with a mintbar
- original face and using some strong filters
- new face and shooting by low low light
yeah, the bag I use is also by polaroid
Stuff you need to have with your SX70
- filter holder with some filter
- lens hood for the filter holder
- close up lens for the filter holder
- self timer
- remote control, also look here and here
- flash bars
- mint bar
- crappy crappy 2.0 lens

What I am missing
- the awesome 1.5 lens
- the mint-lens set (I'm not complete sure ;) )
- tell me more stuff this SX70 needs

Merry merry christmas

ps.: of course I never watched the youtube-vid, is it good?
