    Polapan 35 Processor

    A friend gave me three rolls of the film but didn't have the little developer mechanism needed to process the film. I figure someone's got to have one here which I could buy cheap?

    Thanks!

    Don't bother. The film is far out of date and the processing chemicals have dried up. Don't ask how I know about out of date Polapan.

    I tried some a couple of years back and it worked reasonably well...

    You're right, I'm not going to try anything which may not work.

    A couple of years ago I used old Polaroid 600 with success. Recently I got one box - all frames were bad, very bad. I guess with Polapan it is only worse.

    I'm not saying it's going to be perfect, I'm saying I have the darn things, I'll never have them again, I may as well give it a go.

    I say go for it. I'm intrigued by the stuff and have read reports of people getting acceptable results. Check with jnanian. He had a processor he was going to send me, but I never got around to experimenting.

    Give it a go - but with no expectations . And let us know the results

    Will do, and thank you for the optimism.
