lawnpotter - thanks!

Jamie - As per my initial post, I used the rather clunky and decidedly 90's looking Polaroid 636 Close Up. You can pick them up for peanuts nowadays. And yeah, there's plenty of different Impossible films now. B&W and colour for both SX-70 and 600. Also colour for Spectra (which I have my eye on) and also Impossible have recently released a very limited edition cyanograph emulsion for the SX-70. More to come, I'd suspect!

Looking forward to more on this thread. I have a pristine SX-70 that I would like to use, but balk at the price of the Impossible film. Maybe I shouldn't, because it's not really more expensive, in todays dollars, than the film was when the SX-70 came out.

Thanks for the information. I'll start keeping track of the Impossible results.

If I wanna use the impossible stuff, is it more reliable to go Spectra or 600?

There's nothing in it, as the make up of the dev paste is the same. Only the format is different. As such, there has been a production issue with Spectra films recently, but its still available & Impossible is still a very young company, so you have to expect (and learn to love) hiccups.

Couple shots of PX600 (the old UV line) shot in an original model SX70.

It may not be the case, but a lot of the other results shown here look like what I was getting before I learned to not allow the film to see *ANY* light at all after being ejected from the camera. The old UV and pre-UV+ were just terrible in this regard.

I did everything wrong here: subjects in full sun, overexposed, film accidentally exposed to UV light in early stages of development. But still, I like it. Impossible 600.

I like it too. All I want to do is shoot polaroids cause I have lost interest in photography really. But I love taking snapshots with my polaroid cameras. No matter how boring my composition or subject matter, I always find the pictures interesting.
