    What do you think about the PX-100?

    I recently bought a SX-70 PolaSonar and happy with it. And now I have the PX-100 in it. The guy in the only shop that have analog photography as a specialty near where I live said that the PX-100 was "shit"! I had no time to ask him why at the time, but why would he say that? I know the film is very sensitive when it comes to the tempature, and have to be shot between 17-24C and have to be protected against light the first 30 sec.
    Is the emulsion so unstable? if it is, why to they sell it? I also know that they had to do the emulsion from the beginning.
    Is the grain to big, not sharp enough?

    I wanna know!

    They're selling it to let people know that instant photography isn't dead. They're essentially knowledgeable amateurs trying their best to revive something many people think is already dead. Of course, they need some time to come up with material that is competitive.

    There are some hints how to get pictures more stable on impossible project site. For me worst thing is that you must cover picture immediately after taking shot: I would like to look how picture develops slowly . But ok: baby steps will be gone soon - I hope

    That┤s what I think too. Right now I like the look of the film and the sepia toning to it.
    I wonder how the color gonna look like!? It┤s here soon!!!

    Tricky stuff. It can give some very nice results but it's not easy to shoot well. I summarized my experience with my first two packs in a couple of blog posts at feelingnegative.com.

    Hopefully those will help you some.
