    The SX-70 Craze...

    Well the first one I bought for $60 I ended up returning because it was shot. I picked up another one, but it ended up needing repairs as well. After the repairs on this one, and shipping and losses from the first one, I'm in this SX70 for $225.

    The nice thing is that it now has a new motor, a new coupler, and newly soldered shutter contacts. The rollers have been cleaned, the film compartment blown out, the chrome has been polished, and its been recovered in light blue leather.

    I should get it back next week and I'll be able to try the rest of my Impossible Color Protection film.

    I also picked up a working Nissin flash for it so ill have that to try as well.

    That's why the ones you saw were so much, they had those repairs.

Expired TimeZero is/was a better choice. Not sure about the latest iteration of their stuff, maybe it's finally ready for prime time. They are good at marketeering, I'll give them that. But I have yet to see anything from them that's worth even half what they charge (e.g. the film). Hopefully soon though, I do want them to succeed (which means better product and lower prices).

    The real crime is that Fuji discontinued FP100c45 and FP100B in general. Those were/are the best instant film product ever, I think.
    I would say type 55 was the best, a usable negative AND an instant contact print!

    If I'm not mistaken, you can bleach the Impossible negatives just like you can with FP100c - which I have done and have a lot of fun doing so!

    I keep hearing about that but have seen no actual directions on how to do it... Does it work for color and B&W and what kind of breech, time, special notes, etc?

    EDIT: and you said "impossible negatives" you mean the integral film can be taken out and somehow turned into a negative also?

    Oh wait... I'm confusing emulsion lifts and bleaching negatives.

    Eta: maybe you can't get a negative from integral film. I think I might have been mentally confusing emulsion lifts and negatives. I've been working nights this week, you'll have to excuse me.

    No worries I know that the Fuji type 100 stuff can be bleeched somehow I just don't know how... And that's more interesting to me than the integral stuff anyway lol

    Go get some sleep
