Polaroid Land Camera Heaven

I don't know how I only just now discovered this Land Camera website. This is so, so, so exciting for me! I had several Land Cameras at one time: there was 180, 195, 230, 240, 250 and my current 330.  They were never broken, only left behind for some reason.

In Austin one does move around frequently if not a homeowner. In the 22 years I lived in Austin, I moved a total of 17 times. I know I left a box of  books, art supplies, various vintage sundries and my camera behind in a garage apartment I once rented. When I realized I was missing boxes I returned to the rental but the door was locked and the landlord had taken the keys I left in the mailbox. I was unable to contact her for weeks and accepted the fact that I had lost 240. Another time I  broke up with a guy and left my camera behind with the thought that I would collect my things later.  I decided to just never return and that is how I lost 180. I let her go as if I never loved her.

What I have always wanted is a working self-timer for my Land. My 250 had one that only worked once. It was rusty and corroded. My cameras never came with matching flash boots or batteries. I was always running to Batteries Plus to have them make a replacement battery for me. Every Land camera I ever had always came with a sticky pack of smelly, ancient film stuck in it. I am so beyond thrilled to find a website that not only sells the Land but everything you could possibly want for it like self timers and portrait kits and you ca even purchase a camera with a rechargeable battery system. I will be doing a lot of drooling on this website until I can make some decisions.
