Expensive but does the job if you need 600 series compatible
on April 13, 2013
I decided to experiment with Polaroid film but really, be careful as the old cameras generally don't have good lenses (I'm not discussing professional / press Polaroid cameras with removable lenses). I appreciate that Impossible is making new films, but at $24+ per box of 8 shots, with the film being finnicky and often having development "effects" and visible grain of crystals (even when properly drying out in desiccants) I think the film has to be desired by a certain artistic audience. There are other cameras still produced that use cheaper Fuji instant film, but for those wanting the 600 series film, at the least, it creates great interest at parties. Please note -- and this is also said on their website -- that this film is very light sensitive and after 3 boxes of the silver shade (one box of their color film proved black-and-white is better) i've almost given up trying to get proper light exposure. For me, too expensive of a hobby on mediocre quality, but I know partly this is due to the limitations of my 600 series Polaroid Business Edition camera. Mixed feelings. I've seen good results from others but too sensitive for casual user I think.
