    SX-70 Blend New Site

    OK, here's the latest ~ http://www.sx70blend.com/ It seems to be a (new, improved) variant of 600 chemistry wrapped up in a SX-70 cassette with ND filter pre-attached. The site says the film is not supposed to be manipulable but has a couple of example polaroids where an Italian chap & polaroid manipulation master Filippo has successfully manipulated the film!

    Thanks for the info artpunk.

    Ordered a pack today with a SotD coupon, looking forward to trying it. Looks different to the original, i'm hoping not too much.

    Hey people, centecente (who is the creator of the image that Fintan linked to) is an experienced hand at all forms of Polaroid film manipulation. (He authored the ebook about it which is available as a pdf download from polanoid.net) - he knows all the tricks!
    Because the film is basically based on 600 film chemistry I surmised you would have to be PDQ in your manipulation techniques! I asked Filippo about it and he replied:
    "yes you need to work really quickly in order to manipulate the film
    is not like the old sx 70 film but is possible to have some good effect also with this new unbelievable film..."

    He gives a little bit more info about what he did in these cases:
    "manipulation on SX 70 Blend film using wooden and metal tools, refrigerating the film and adding textures"
    So although certainly not as easy as traditional SX-70 manipulation, it does appear do-able!
    Cheers.

    P.S. Here's a link to all of Filippo's manips using the new SX-70 blend so far:

    Nice stuff! He does good work.

    hmmm....is it time for that mood of cautious optimism to rise? I'm interested in getting more details on this. Might have to give in and snag a box over the winter.

    A good time to be getting into Polaroids, apparently. Very interesting indeed, great news.

    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.
