THE FILM ITSELF
Impossible film, this is not. After having taken 16 pictures (you may scoff, but that's $50!), I wouldn't call any of them total duds-- any mistakes could be blamed more on me than the film itself. Always keep these extremely important tips in mind:
- SET YOUR EXPOSURE DIAL: Start your SX-70's exposure dial from the darkest setting, and work your way up. I've never had to go past the middle point, actually. You will probably never have to set the dial to the brightest setting. Indoors, darkest/ second-darkest did the trick, while outside in the day it was anywhere from second darkest to least dark. Not sure yet about night shots.
- SHIELD YOUR POLAROIDS: Immediately turn your camera upside down the moment it spits the camera out, or shield your hand over it, or install the Impossible Frog Tongue. Any light hitting the picture in its first few minutes will dramatically affect the exposure.
- DEVELOP PROPERLY: Polaroids should develop face-down in a dark, warm place (the darkness is the most important part, warmth is optional but helpful.), NEVER in direct sunlight or lamp-light. DO NOT SHAKE THEM!Read more ›
Immediately out of the camera, throw it in either the cardboard pack, shield it with your hand, or otherwise keep it safe for about 30 minutes from light. This applies especially in direct sunlight: that orange, washed out look is entirely optional. If you keep it dark, it'll look much more like a 'normal' exposure.
Still expensive, but at least it's keeping instant photography (and the awesome old Polaroid cameras) alive!
The Impossible Project is still experimenting with the film, it is better than the film last year, because they updated their process to produce the film.
The quality of the image is okay, but still if you want a better looking image, there is always digital. The image does not bother me, because it gives the image a different quality than film or digital images. The exposed film takes sometime to develop (around 30 minutes), so be patient.
One thing that I would recommend getting is a frog tongue that is also sold by Impossible. It helps the image quality substantially. The other options are to make something out of a black bag, which I have not tried or immediately shield the exposed image from the sun with your hand or something else.
Overall, I would recommend this film if you have an old SX-70 and want to put it back into use.
