A while ago I picked up a couple of packs of Polaroid film from The Photographers Gallery in London. ‘The Impossible Film Project’ has started making film again for vintage polaroid cameras. Its currently a little experimental with long development times and the images not being fixed properly, so fade and discolour pretty quickly. That said, they are updating their formula all the time and I notice the warnings have been removed from their site so I guess its getting much better.
After tinkering with a couple of cameras I had laying about I got one working. During my tinkering the film packs were loaded and unloaded a couple of times so its likely that some of the films were exposed. Focusing is auto (apparently) but i’m not sure what it was doing most of the time. The camera intermittently lost power as well, reseting the film count so I was never quite sure how many shots I had left. The results are a little odd but i’m definitely going to get some more film and experiment more.
