hey, how come my plants get hormones before i do?
@noiob is it like, just a mention in passing, or do they do songs specifically about canada? i usually like the former
sometimes i stop and actually have to think about it before my brain goes "oh right. shit"
@IceWolf probably because it was one less thing to keep track of
they would probably require you to use disposable batteries in a camera back then if any, so just having to put in a picture pack and know you'll have more than enough power to take all 8 pictures was pretty convenient i imagine
@IceWolf polaroid cameras use picture packs that are basically cartridges with 8 instant pictures in them, and a battery since the camera itself doesn't have one
they cost like $30 each though, and in getting only 8 pictures that you need to be able to take clearly and at a good angle and with good lighting on the first try... it's quite pricey compared to digital, or standard roll film cameras even
and also apparently there's a way to mod the picture packs to use the newer cheaper instant film for the cameras that have batteries built in
it's so strange to me that polaroid cameras don't have a battery built in, their picture packs actually power them
which is why you'd need to bring one to test the camera, though you can use a cartridge with no pictures left apparently
there are good polaroid cameras locally for less than the picture packs cost, at like $15 for a one600 pro and $25 for a sun600 lms
and you'd need a picture pack to test them
also i probably shouldn't be getting cameras that cost $30 for 8 pictures when i can barely shoot digital as it is
