    I picked up a couple of like new and working SX70 cameras at a estate sale over the weekend. The fact that i will now be purchasing Time-Zero film for these cameras could be a signal that it may soon be out of production.

    Only a few days after I returned to using Kodak paper did the word come down about Kodak discontinuing production.

    You have been warned.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Jim. Let me know if you start buying anything else.

    Oh, and have you considered going digital? Could be just the thing we are looking for! :D

    With Polaroids BK a couple of years ago, in actuallity I am really surprised they are still making the films they are, of course the new direction of polaroid has been decidedly slanted tword digital in the past couple of years as well..so only time will tell..

    Wasn't there something about problems with creative processes with this film ?
    Or is it another ? It was mentioned here on APUG.

    Funny, you can still get Fuji film for the Poloroid 550 holder which was discontinued sometime back.

    that has been an issue with being able to manipulate time zero film. Polariod has been working on correctly this problem.

    I think I have the same jinx Jim. Just as I had got going real good with Polymax and Azo, they cease production. I had just gotten into SX-70 manipulations when the Polaroid "change" to the film was announced. Now I feel the same about Polaroid sheet film. Just as I'm really starting to enjoy it, you watch, Polaroid will quit making it.
