On the April 15th The Film Photography Podcast (Internet Radio Show) gave away a Polaroid 600 Camera. Chris Nielsen from New Zealand was the lucky winner!
Today, I received the following correspondence from Chris:

The camera has arrived!!! YES!!!!!
It's very exciting to have my first Polaroid camera, and the photos look awesome!!! I took it with me over the weekend on a couple of trips and took some photos which I've posted.

I also found out the fun of giving Polaroids away! There was a group of loud guys at the kids soccer game that thought a Polaroid of them was just the best thing ever!!! I also gave a photo I took of my friend's 10 year old to him after our flight in the weekend (I took him and his mum to the beach for lunch in a small plane). I think he took the photo with him to school to show all his friends !!!!
Anyway, thanks again! I'm so excited about this I'm like a little kid :-)
