    I recently shot a 12-exp roll of Polachrome, just to find out that the processing pack exploded internally. Does anyone have a leftover Polachrome processing pack that they think might be good?

    Forget this old polachrome-stuff. All films are dried out! unuseable

    forget it completely. Waste of time. you will not see anything on the empty film.

    stephen frizza had a large amount of this film, maybe he has some spoiled film and an extra
    chemistry pod. i have some of the blue polaroid film, and it might not be the same chemistry...

    I beg to differ, I used three or four rolls that I had six months ago and all of them worked fine.

    I've got a bunch of the Polachrome and Polablue that I use occasionally. Pods and film are still good. I can spare a pod.

    Thanks for the offer, but I just got another Polachrome roll and processing pack. I will develop the current film with the new pod, and will be sending the extra roll to Greg Miller at Film Rescue so that he might be able to successfully process the last type of film that he is unable to do successfully.
