    Finally impossible picture are not sensitive to light any more when ejected

    Hi all,

    http://shop.the-impossible-project.c...x680_bp_mum#p1

    As I am in pioneer program - I have already tested this film - and it is true, you don't need to shield pictures any more.

    IMHO - biggest problem (beside price ) is solved.

    Only thing is that you need to wait picture to develop quite long, around 20-30 minutes, but quality of pictures and colors are very good - comparable with instax wide.

    Next step should be to put this protecting layer in B&W films also.

    regards,

    I got the email about this new film from Impossible 40 minutes ago, and within 10 minutes of receiving it, I had placed my order for three packs. I'm really hoping this film lives up to the claims made for it by IP.

    I agree the price is atrocious. Eventually IP is going to have to compete with Fuji on price, else it will never rise above being a niche product.

    Only bad thing about fuji is that they don't have B&W instax film, and cameras are cool and nice looking only for instax mini, instax wide cameras are ugly - not even to start comparison with polaroid SLR's.

    The quality of the Fuji films is incomparable. Unfortunately, there isn't one that fits in my SX-70.

    Thanks for that coigach. I'm certainly brave enough to attempt it, but I don't have the patience for it. That is an incredibly tedious process to have to go through to use the Fuji film in an SX-70. I'm not sure I see the point, except for the sake of novelty.

    You can still get the Blend film for SX-70 on the bay every now and then though.

    I think next step for impossible will be to introduce film pack without batteries, and separate rechargeable battery. That would lower the cost of film pack + more eco friendly. In some of the interviews they sad that they are working on it.

    That would need some pretty fancy engineering to work in polaroid cameras, which expect a battery within the film pack.
