The Return of Instant Film
As of March 25, 2010 it will be possible to buy instant film for your SX-70 camera. Hurray! I mentioned this to a co-worker and she was just thrilled. The Impossible Project has made good on it’s promise to reinvent instant film. Their first product is a black and white instant film in ASA 100 and ASA 600. The 100 film you can use in the SX-70 cameras and the 600 is aimed at the Polaroid One type of cameras. Of course you can use them in either type of camera with some adjustments. The best thing about the film is that it seems to be manipulable!
From the press release:
After 17 months of research and development, The Impossible Project announced that it succeeded in its task of re-producing a new analog Instant Film for traditional Polaroid cameras. Containing more than 30 newly developed components, Impossible today introduced a new, monochrome Instant Film – the PX 100 and PX 600 Silver Shade – and is therewith saving millions of perfectly functioning Polaroid cameras from becoming obsolete (as Polaroid discontinued its instant film production early in 2008).
I believe the price for the new films will be $21.00 for a pack of 8.
