    New film for Polaroid SX-70 - Blend film?

    Does anyone have any contacts in Polaroid that could comment on this "news"

    Not with Polaroid, no, but Alex Falk (of Mr. Cad) told me about it at photokina. He's part of the consortium that paid to have it coated.

    Cheers,

    True, it would be great if it would manipulate but if it doesn't I'd still be glad to have it at a reasonable cost.

    I'm not totally sure the manipulators are in the majority though Ann, I think theres a huge amount of users that just love the colour and feel of it.

    But fingers crossed it will make a comeback and will manipulate.

    I'm not holding out much hope for manipulation, unless they have the actual Time Zero formula in hand. More than likely, this new film will address the difference in film speed, and do away with the problem of having to compensate with ND filters to get images when using 600 film in their SX-70 cams.

    That said....it would totally ROCK if it could manipulate! I'd be in line with cash in hand! That was a process I really enjoyed.

    Alex gave the distinct impression it would be manipulable.

    It's being coated on the old Polaroid machines.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the info Roger. Please update us if you hear any more info.

    I do think theres a huge market for time-zero film and it is sustainable. Just looking at the amount of time-zero on websites like www.polanoid.net amazes me.
