    Incidentally, Jim, what you say is not consistent with my experience. I have refrigerated 665 going way back several years, it's still very good. I still use 2-3 year old stuff. Likewise the 55. I've had far more issues with the polaroid holders themselves than the type 55 or 665. What does have major aging issues is the colour polaroid, pretty much any of it.

    I feel like impossible is going out of their way to make a quick buck with polaroid stuff now and really don't have a great long term plan.

    We should call that guy in Missouri and tell him to buy it all and send it to us or else we'll never forgive him.



    Oh, sorry. I really gotta work on that inner dialogue.
    Thank you.

    Polaroid is trendy now, that's what's keeping the medium alive. That's what's keeping a large hunk of analogue photography in the mainstream. The same people who will pay $300 for a Diana will pay as much as you want for a pack of Type-55.
    Polapremium/The Impossibe Project is financed largely by the fact it's the cool thing right now.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    I personally would love to continue using P/N55. But it ain't quite THAT cool.
    Thank you.

    I felt it kind of weird that they keep "Finding" boxes or crates of film in "Hidden corners" etc... they've done this now like 8 times with different types of films.

    Well, let's remember that large format photography is rapidly becoming one of the "sports of kings" (and a few queens as well ) and prices on certain rare materials and kit will command outrageous prices that most of us will not choose to pay. At $233.00 per 20 exposure box, Impossible is already sold out of Type 55.

    Perhaps they're simply testing the market...
