Hi Skorj, I´m new on polaroid so your review was very useful for me.
I´m planning to buy a 600se and I go catched with the fact that you can adapt it to use SX 70 film as it would give me a wider range of available film to use.
About the adapted back to do so, I was wondering if you sell them, or if you know about any tutorials to learn how to do it myself.
I would really appreciatte your help in this issue!

you pretty much have to get an sx-70 back from ebay. used to be cheap, like in the $30 range, but recent Impossible Project stuff has brought the prices up to $130+. And you still have to make a mount yourself (and find a 600SE to use for the project). Same principle as what I have done here with the 4x5 back and Mamiya Universal:

I've bought two sx-70 backs and neither worked, so still haven't done this for myself...

Hi, been meaning to post here for some time, I do hope my message gets read (this is a great resource for the GOOSE).

I have 3 diopters for my Polaroid, I recently purchased the Mamiya focusing hood. And more recently the necessary M adapter.

(I already have one film back and I have also ordered the film back model which will shoot, 6x4.5, 6x6 and 6x9, so I knew I needed to order the M adapter eventually).

I have also been watching some macro extension tubes on ebay. These appear to come in 5 sizes (so offer more variations than the 3 diopters).

My question is if I do invest in the macro tubes, is it absolutely necessary to also purchase the back spacer? I mean what would happen without that, would the image just appear blurry?

Thanks in advance.

I was looking for the spacer set but eventually gave up, and settle with putting diopters over the 127 & 150 mm lenses.  That gave me decent images down to half life size.

When using indoor, I always found the ground glass focusing screen fairly dark.  It is hard to image how much darker it will get after adding the spacers (i.e. extra distance).
