Hi All,

I just bought a box of quite old (Jun 95) Polaroid Type 51 and it seems different from the Type 51 I'm used to, i.e. the one with a negative and iso of 640.

This one is iso 320 and doesn't mention having a negative. I could open the box and try it but if it doesn't have the neg I want to re-sell it so if any one has any information you might same me some $$$ :-)

Thanks

Rob

ISO 320, print-only sounds more like Type 52 (actually a ISO 400)...

Rob,

In the early days Type 51 was print only, I know this because I work with it for a long time. And Polaroid has some of my prints in the Polaroid Collection. The film went through a number of incarnations the last has a negative. The box till say pos/neg on it. You can down load a pdf of the film from the Polaroid Site.
