The Impossible Project Announces New Instant Film

Film Photography News Uncategorized

New Instant Film From The Impossible ProjectPolaroid stopped production of its instant film line in early 2008. Most people probably think of a trademark white frame and soft, quirky snapshots when they think of Polaroid. The truth is, there’s a passionate and flourishing fine art community that uses Polaroid instant film and cameras as the foundation for their art. The Impossible Project was founded in late 2008 to preserve Polaroid-style instant film and allow people to continue enjoying instant film photography and existing Polaroid instant film cameras. Today, The Impossible Project announced PX100 and PX600 Silver Shade monochrome film – their first instant films. The new films will be available on Thursday, March 25th. The Polaroid art photography community is very excited about the new film and looking forward to more from The Impossible Project.

I’ve been following The Impossible Project since it was announced and will continue to follow it and keep our readers updated. We should have a guest article on this subject soon. I find The Impossible Project especially compelling because it’s a new business that appears to be almost totally motivated by artistic passion. That’s special in this day and age and deserves our recognition and support. The new Impossible Film packaging is pretty nice, too.

    Great news about The Impossible Projects new SX70 film! I was afraid that I’d have to consign my camera to a life of dust accumulation on a lonely shelf at home. I will be following this with interest,
    Good work!

  • Horrible results says:

    I tried the Impossible film and I have to say I am very disappointed. The stuff is sooooo temperature sensitive making it very difficult to use. On my first pack, out of 8 shots i got ONE that was acceptable. five packs later, and i even tried a different camera and different exposure settings, i cant get consistent results when the same temperature is maintained. You basically need a controlled temperature environment, to store the loaded camera, take the shot and develop the picture. Lastly, one of the packs i got would not even work. I think there is a lot more work needed here and i hope future results are better. But for now I am going to stick with expired Polaroid film – the real stuff wherever i can get it. So far I’ve had great results with expired film. Good luck
