    Its not good. Hopefully some company will pick it up...if they can arrange a licensing agreement with Poloroid.

    Hey Simon...maybe Ilford should add this to their product line.

    The irony is that this Audio slideshow on NPR is being sponsored by Epson. :rolleyes:

    It is bad, but not all that bad, most folks dont know that Fuji makes instant films that fit Polorid holders. But not the very large format.

    Fuji does make B&W instant pack film, but not P/N.

    Just heard the story on ATC, which includes some good clips from Elsa Dorfman.

    None. But their 4x5 pack film will fit a 550 holder.
