I've used their PX70 film in Polaroid SX-70 cameras. It works pretty good but I prefer the Packfilm from Fuji (FP-100c & FP-3000b) with my old Polaroid 100 Land Cameras. It's much cheaper and produces better pictures. I just hope they keep making it.

This is a Flickr set of their PX70 film I shot.

There is another company that is collaborating with The Impossible Project to make instant 4x5 film. It sounds like they are getting ready to produce some interesting Black and White film in the near future.

How absolutely, completely bonkers.

Sorry, but what???

I think of myself as old school analogue and think I can justify most moves into digital, but this is just crazy!!!
