    I hope Polariod does OK. I notice that it is kinda expensive.

    I wish them luck but at that price I'm not going to consider it.

    There was a piece on NPR this morning about Polaroid and the Impossible Project. While, personally, I don't need this, I do hope this survives as a viable enterprise, because at some point in the future, probably all commercial film production will rely on projects like this one.

    I would be willing to give it a try. And then wait for the color versions and the 8x10.

    i've been searching for a working SX-70 Sonar on the auction site in anticipation of this... will have to stick with Fuji for my pack film addiction in the RZ67 for now I suppose.

    i was all set to test a pack of the sx-70, but the only thing i could find was the Black stuff, which i don't want . Quess i will have to wait and see what else they come up for that camera.

    the other stuff looked interesting, i have another polariod body hanging out someplace, that i think will take that film so i might try it out. funny, i meant to post that camera for sale and see if anyone was interested, but just kept forgetting.

    Would love to try it but 21$+shipping and tax is a little steep for 8 photos. Regardless I am sure there are a lot of excited people out there, which is good.

    $21 is kind of steep. The 600 film which shall come out in 6 weeks will be 10 photos for $21. But, this is basically the same price that Polaroid had before they closed.

    I remember selling 600 pack film 2 years ago(late 2007) for like $12.95/pack. I hope the I.P.'s film prices will be more consumer-friendly.

    I have to get rid of some 200+ boxes of Polaroid film I hoarded when Polaroid went under. I'm glad they proved me wrong though and came back from the dead. I hope they team up with Lomography and Flickr too and get more orders then they could ever get here.

    Regards, Art
