    I have a Polaroid back for the Hasselblad 503CW, (Polaplus). What film does this take? 667 is it?

    I've come across a large supply of sealed 667, dated 1993 and wondered if it was any use to me?

    Thanks

    The Hasselblad Polaplus magazine takes any 6** Polaroid packfilm, such as 664 (Polapan 100), 665 (negative/positive, no longer manufactured), 667 (3000 ISO), 679, 689 and 690 color films.

    Polaroid 667 at 3000 ISO is useless for proofing and the tonal range isn't to write home about either. If it is dated 1993 the developing agent has almost certainly dried out. The chance that this film is still useable is almost zero.

    Cheers for that.
