    I wonder. Whichever is a simpler product to make is probably what they will have first. I am not big into the manipilations so I don't really care either way. Harmon Technology is in on the project so I would hope the black and white would be nice.

    Do you know if they bought the exact formulas from Polaroid?

    They stated repeatedly that they cannot begin anything with the original formula as some elements neccessary are no longer produced and thus they have to seek for alternatives, which will end, if at all, in a different film.
    Furthermore they are only capable so far in manufacturing a receptive layer and pods, and doing the assembly.
    They need a partner in manufacturing the negative.

    I would laugh hysterically and ironically and retreat to my cave if they announced "we have failed. bye bye" tomorrow. They've tried to leave us in suspense though I'm guessing they have completed it.

    I don't know who would coat the color film. I heard that Polaroid originally stopped making 600 film because they had run out of the negative layer. They had to contract the coating out and for the last few years cut existing stock down until they ran out. I'm not sure how truthful that is but AgX is right in that they need to coat color film somehow. If they can do that they may as well fire up the kodachrome machines too

    This quote "Being the only company worldwide capable of manufacturing analog Instant Film" is blatantly incorrect. Fuji currently manufactures instant films, and Kodak can but will not!

    Well, the sale starts soon. I wish them luck.
