PLEASE READ - Overview
The Impossible Project now makes new film for your vintage Polaroid 600 camera. Impossible films do not use the original Polaroid film formula. This new, exciting and experimental Impossible Project formula creates marvelous monochrome (Silver Shade film) or color (Color Shade film) images that have imperfections and unpredictable results. It is this unpredictability that makes Impossible films special and has film photographers coming back for more!
Temperature, humidity and exposure to light after the film ejects from your camera greatly effect your final image. Please shield Impossible film from light when it ejects from your camera and place the picture face down to develop.
NOT the Polaroid Formula
Before purchasing Impossible Project film, it is important that you understand that the chemical structure of the film is very different from what Polaroid was producing for SX-70, 600 or Spectra cameras. Impossible films are experimental and unpredictable. It’s what makes Impossible Project film fun and exciting to shoot but let’s face it, your Mom and Grand Dad may not like it! If you’re looking for the look of original Polaroid film we suggest that you check out the Fujifilm Instax series of cameras - http://filmphotographyproject.com/store/instant-film-cameras/fujifilm-instax-cameras
Impossible films LOVE light and work best outdoors or in very well lit spaces. Once exposed, the film is very sensitive and must be shielded from light as it ejects from the camera. Immediately turn the print upside down or stash it in a dark pocket.
Whether you are shooting Impossible film or any instant film please note that instant film hates the cold and any tempature under 70 degrees (21 celcius). Suggestion – immediately stow away your image into a warm inner pocket for optimum developing.
Experimentation is a must
Every vintage Polaroid camera has it’s own set of idiosyncrasies and will expose Impossible film in a slightly different way from camera to camera. Most vintage Polaroid cameras are twenty years old (some models are forty years old!) Film Photograpy Project founder Michael Raso is an avid Polaroid shooter and has done a number of tests using many packs of Impossible PX-600 Silver Shade for Polaroid 600 cameras. He found that results vary camera to camera and recommends that you get to know your camera and what settings work best for Impossible film. Experimentation is a must! Know your camera and it’s particular quirk!
There’s Always Vanilla
Polaroid photography with film by the Impossible Project has been a fun and rewarding experience for many visitors to the Film Photography Project website and listeners to our Film Photography Podcast. Shooting with Impossible film presents a lot of new possibilities and has given many analog folk great options when not in the mood for vanilla. Best of luck and most importantly, enjoy shooting!
