The photo sandwich will come through the rollers, breaking the reagent pack and spreading the reagent between the photo and negative. It should operate like any other peel apart Polaroid camera. The paper tab, when pulled will cause the photo sandwich tab to appear between the rollers. If it does not, you may have to adjust the tension on the springs that hold the pack in the camera. Sometimes, these can be pretty stiff and impede the photo coming out in the correct fashion. You can see the spring here. It is the metal spring right above the "Keep Rollers Clean" warning. Good luck!
Any 35mm film with sprocket holes will do. Without a flash, I'd stick to outdoor scenes. I'd stick to 400 ISO film as a go to film with this camera.
I meant E-6 of course 8-/
Ronnie, Thanks for the tips! Always appreciated. It looks like you joined Instructables just to reply...so I know your tips are high quality!I've moved recently, so I have not tried this technique in some time, but will as soon as I can burn through a roll of C-41. What is your opinion on sunlight for fogging? Some suggest that it can lead to color shifts, but you seem to say that it is required for d-max? Does UV play a significant role or is tungsten OK??
Thinner is better. The scanner has a very limited focus range, so I think foam core material may be too thick. The material I used was essentially black card stock....a heavy paper. I'd go with the poster paper!
Hey, thanks for the comments. I made these with the instructable motif as a proof of principle. If anyone wants one of these "limited edition" coins, just instructable-mail me your address. One will easily fit into an envelope and I'll take care of the minimal postage...even overseas (places other than Texas). I have about 20 left (the rest were randomly dropped around Manhattan on a visit there). If they are popular, I can always make another round! Cheers!
Sorry, I see that the sculpture is a biorock installation...nice!
Would the transplants survive better with a biorock installation? From what I understand, it would mean putting a low voltage current through the rebar.
Sure, they should be just as light tight as a regular pack. Since they are out of the factory foil package, I'd store the pack in a heavy duty quart freezer ziplock bag. This will protect it from dust, moisture and mechanical damage. If you could find them in black...all the better 8-)

If someone wants them for this conversion or a conversation piece...fine. However, Even under ideal storage conditions, those film packs are long dead for their original purpose. They will not produce an image.
Ahhh, the old Pleaser! Probably has not pleased anyone in quite a while! I don't think that you could really convert a Pleaser to pack film. It was an integral type instant camera, not a peel apart instant camera. I've converted a Kodak instant camera to a cut film camera, but the results were not that great and was not worth the effort. Better to have it as a decorative object or doorstop 8-)
