Sometimes the prints lack contrast.

I have the same Brown tint as the other reviewer. It does work but the colors are pretty bad -- all brown. I guess it's artistic. I worked for Polaroid and I remember when "Time-Zero" film came out in the late 70s. That stuff was phenomenally fast and the colors were great -- Edwin Land was personally in charge of the Time-Zero project. But Land is dead and so is the real Polaroid. I suppose the Impossible people are doing everything they can. I wonder if their SX-70 or 600 film is better than this Spectra film? The full-sized Fuji Instax film is great but too bad there are no decent cameras to go with it!!! There is one good camera for the mini-films, but the pictures are too small! What's an instant photographer to do? The peel-apart Fuji films for Polaroid cameras are fine but when are they going to be killed by Fuji?

It's getting tough for the Polarized among us! I don't have the courage to buy some Zink thing...it ain't film.

Oh, I figured out why the Impossible film has only 8 pictures. They say it's because they can't get the original material for the film, but this struck me as a bit fishy because the Impossible pictures are perfectly thin. So I tore about the Impossible film pack and the culprit is the battery -- it is some weird, very thick replacement for the original very thin Polapulse battery. This makes sense because I was wondering how Impossible could deal with the batteries. But why aren't the Impossible people up front about this? "We can not replicate the original thin Polaroid battery so we had to create our own battery, which is much thicker, and therefore does not leave room for the original 10-pictures."

Talk to me about this -- and all things Polaroid and Impossible: ssalemi@earthlink.net

All of my pictures turned out with very muted colors and an unattractive brownish tint. I tried to vary the temperature and exposure, but the muted colors and brown tint did not change.

I found Fuji pack film in a Polaroid Automatic 100 to be much, much nicer.

I have owned a model of every new Polaroid camera made and I would love to have the means (film) to continue their use. When Edwin Land designed his SX70 cameras, he wanted to be sure that the photographer would not encounter a dead battery so he invented a new kind of battery and put into every pack of film. Now, with current battery technology and with perfect hind sight this idea was a disaster. The chemical process is still superb and Fuji is using it in an uncomplicated camera which holds a standard battery. Impossible uses a battery that requires more space so each pack produces only 8 photos (the camera picture counter still starts at 10 so the number of remaining photos is not correct). The colors are marginally good but the BIG problem is that the word INSTANT really does not apply since it takes 35 to 40 MINUTES for the film to develop outside the camera. It is a shame the Fuji, Impossible film and Kodak, (remember that they produced an Impossible PRD2787 Color Film for Polaroid Spectra Camerasinstant camera and were a supplier to Polaroid of critical film elements) cannot work out a solution, even if it requires producing a new camera. Another downer for Possible is the cost of a print. A single photo costs $3.00 .

My daughter found my old Spectra camera and really wanted to use it with her friends-so glad I finally found this film-a bit pricey (but it always was as I recall) but it gives the teenagers an "old time" film experience that they really enjoy. Nothing like watching a picture develop slowly in front of your eyes-so much more fun than digital instant gratification pics.

I bought a pack of this film to use in a Spectra camera I got off of eBay. All of my prints have poor color balance. Sometimes the prints lack contrast. Sometimes they lack saturation. I have had prints that were tined brown and others are tinted blue. The performance of my film pack is very inconsistent. Do your research you'll see that this is a common complaint about the film.

Others may disagree and I can see why. There are scans available on Flickr and other photo site of beautiful shots with wonderful color tones and contrast. Maybe they got lucky with their combination of film and camera.

My problems could be due to the camera. Perhaps the rollers aren't spreading the developer properly.

Cost is also an issue. Each print is about $3. That's an expensive mistake if your shot is over or under exposed. I am surprised that the batteries of today are so much thicker than yesteryear that the pack loses two shots. If Impossible does thin out the battery and add two more shots I doubt they will lower the price. Overall this film should cost half of what it does today.

I am surprised that with so much technology at our disposal Impossible cannot produce a consistently performing film. Perhaps Edwin Land really did take his secret formula to the grave. Maybe the technology is locked up in patents. Hopefully Impossible will figure things out and update their film here.

This film pretty much stinks. Photos taken indoors with a flash have way too high of a contrast. Only 8 pictures per pack, when I was expecting 10 per pack - like the original Spectra Packs. Admittedly the old Polaroid film wasn't great, but you could at least make out the image. (The old Kodak instant cameras took great pictures until Polaroid sued and put them out of the instant camera business) And 30+ minutes to develop is silly. Save your money. For the cost of three packs of film you can buy a decent low end digital camera.
