Received a new box of Type 59 today. Its adorned with a yellow sticker stating that this product is being discontinued. Checked Polaroid's website, but nothing posted there yet. There was a post last month on the LF Forum alluding to this also, the information be obtained from Polaroid Customer Service.
Well, here we go again folks. Another great product with some unique artistic characteristics going away. Nothing has been said about discontinuing Type 59's brothers (669 and 809) but I sure liked working with the individual 4x5 sheets. Type 669 is still very affordable but since it is a pack film, its kind of a hindrance for taking emulsion transfer shots in the field. Type 809 is hugely expensive.
Time for a cry and a stock-up!
