    After speaking with ImPossible again today, they have said that the 600 is coming very soon and that the PX-100 First Flush is no longer manufactured and will be replaced by a reformulated PX-100 that is easier to work with as soon as the current stock sells out.

    hmm....sepiareverb, you're a lot more forgiving than me. Only 4 good pictures out of 16? That would just get me so frustrated. Especially since you don't have any manual control over the exposure. From what I'm reading, it seems like it's just pure luck whether the pictures turn out.

    I do want to try the film...some of the pictures I've seen look pretty cool, almost like Van Dyke prints. But I just hope the film isn't as finicky and unstable as people have been saying. I understand the film is still new and experimental...if half of my pictures turn out, then I would be happy with that. But 1/4th...not so much. Not for $21 a cartridge and only 8 shots.

    EDIT:

    Ok, Patrick I just saw your post. That sounds good. Apparently, a lot of people have been saying the same things and Impossible Project is hearing them.

    Do you have an SX-70 Chris?

    Since their website says that the PX-100 is at a special "Introductory Price" I asked what it will change to and it will only go up $1 USD when the Introductory price is over...

    The same as praising it to those who don't like it.

    Is it not allowed, in a thread devoted to "the first impressions" we have of something, to say anything else than how great that something would be?

    I probably will look around for an SX-70 and I will try at least one cartridge just out of curiosity.

    Look around for a One-Step. They're cheap, take SX-70 film, and have a nifty multicolor racing stripe.

    Are all the SX-70 cameras pretty much the same, or are there some models which are better than others?

    There are SX-70s that are SLR type and they are extremely high quality and then there are all plastic SX-70 that are more like most of the 600 but they all have a nice retro flare to them. See these photos.

    wooo hoo!

    600 film just announced. I bought a couple of packs today and I'll be looking forward to trying them.

    Yeah, I just got an email too.

    Notice how they're already reacting to the mixed reception of PX100.

    quote, "A completely new material with totally different characteristics than the PX 100, precise, sharp and simply astonishing. "

    Indeed, it does look better. So, indeed, progress already it appears.
