I've been trying to recreate the Polaroid 600 on my old Olympus, since it has about the same aspect ratio. I'm pretty sure 48mm f/5.6 1/48th is the way to go from what I could find out, but I'd like some advice if anyone remembers the exact specs, along with thoughts on the results.

Online it mentions a 116mm 1 element plastic lens. But the user guide mentions a 106mm lens with a f/14.6-45 range of aperture. Shutter speed falling between 1/3- 1/200 of a second. So pretty much any digital camera will outperform the 600 quality wise. I'm kinda confused as to why you didn't include borders in photshop since that seems to be a very Polaroidesque feature.
>>
>>3419024
Yeah, it should be 50mm, 48mm effective on a 35mm equivalent. f/4.5 - f/5.6 equivalent, depending on the model, and Big Shot had fixed 1/48 speed, so I'm basing myself off that. It's not quality, it's the grain and fixed focus that used to be there, it created a nice DoF. I don't really want to have a 1:1 polaroid print, that's why I don't bother with the borders
>>
WTF are you trying to recreate here? Go get some preset.
From what you wrote, I get the strong impression you're stupid as fuck. Your camera doesn't even have "about the same aspect ratio".
Trying to recreate the focal length and even shutter speed is nothing more than stupid nonsense and your results are just underexposed snapshots of nothing.

He is making a preset. From the look of it, he's actually getting somewhere.

If he's making a preset, then why does he mention focal length and shutter speed? You know there already are presets for this?
>>
>>3419039
>Your camera doesn't even have "about the same aspect ratio".
Not as classic Polaroids, no - but if I'd like to take something like a Big Shot photo, I'd need a 4:3, not 3:2 ratio.
>>
>>3419050
Because he’s trying to recreate the specs of the original camera, then add a preset onto that to try to recreate the Polaroid look, you can go about doing this many ways but that’s how he’s trying to do it
>>
>>3419051
Have you ever seen a polaroid? It's not 4:3, but almost 1:1 (off by 1mm).

>>3419052
But he's thinking too complicated here. There is no need to use the same focal length here to recreate the look.
>>

>Have you ever seen a polaroid? It's not 4:3, but almost 1:1 (off by 1mm).
And if you'd read my post, you'd know I'm leaving myself wiggle room for 4:3 Polaroid films like Packfilms. Cropping to 1:1.3 (if I remember correctly is easy enough.
>But he's thinking too complicated here. There is no need to use the same focal length here to recreate the look.
Not all Polaroids, but Big Shot and 640 had fixed minimum focus length on 3-4ft. If you were to use a different focal length, the depth of focus would be affected, and it's one of the things I'm going for.

You're wasting your time, but at least it's photo related. Best of luck for your project.

Thanks. I know it's pretty pointless, but it's still fun. All things considered, I think the two biggest obstacles are the smooth lighting (PX 680) films especially had very blurry shadows, and the colors, but i don't think this offy vividness can be achieved in-camera. I'll try to see how these settings would work in daylight, there's way too much grain in those

Polaroid made multiple different types of film in several different aspect ratios. The 600 and Time Zero film was roughly 1:1, but the older 100-style peel apart film was pretty close to 4:3.
