WARNING: If you are looking at the white box of SX-70 film, DO NOT BUY IT. Impossible has released a new, improved batch that comes in a black box, that is more stable and with faster development times. You can find this at their official website (Google "Impossible Project"). The white boxes will now be sold at even more inflated prices, by third party sellers. The newer film is called SX-70 (rather than PX-70), and the logo/name is on a black box on a white background, rather than on an all-white background.

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!

I bought this film to test out an SX-70 Model 2 I picked up at a yard sale for $15. I used the darkslide to shade the film as it ejected, despite the color protection; no sense taking chances on a bright day! It worked beautifully! I've taken 3 shots so far, and they are all fantastic. The color is very nice, and the image has a great softness to it. No exposure problems or undeveloped spots. It takes FOREVER to develop (first shot took over an hour) but it was still fun, and the end result was worth it.

This is an awesome film for use in older SX-70 type Polaroid cameras. While not perfect, this is an experimental film that has been well stabilized for integral use and has a beautiful cool blue tone to the image, while still remaining fairly warm overall. It reminds me of Kodak Porta in terms of color rendering. Highly suggest for all applications!

I'm still waiting for The Impossible Project to make a film comparable in quality and convenience to Polaroid's old film. Based on the hype on the Impossible Project's website, I had hoped that this film would be it. On the plus side, it was fun to see my old SX-70 power up again after all these years, but at $3.00 per shot, this film's convenience, color, and image quality pale in comparison to Polaroid's $1.50 per shot trouble-free Time Zero film. I will not buy this film again.

Certainly the best Impossible film yet - but I would still advise anyone using it to shield it well directly after exposure. The difference in contrast, sharpness, and color accuracy is massive.

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!

I found an SX-70 and needed film for it. Seeing that this is the only film that is made for the camera anymore, I bought some. Although the film is not perfect, it is still the only thing that it is being made. Thus, putting to use the SX-70 I have.

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.

Loved it! Easy to fit in my polariod and had no trouble at all! As soon as you put it in it takes pictures great. Make sure when you take the pictures you hold the camera very still or else it will come out all blurry and smeared looking. don't take pictures too close or they will be blurry. pictures come out the best 6 or more feet away.
