    Lift/Transfer - Polaroid Type 79

    Will 79 lift and transfer? I notice its not mentioned on Polaroid.com with the other lift/transfer types.

    Anyone with experiences to tell?

    It will transfer just fine. I've not tried a lift. Just extend the processing time before you separate the negative because the film has recently changed from a 90-second film to 120 seconds. So whereas with about 10-12 seconds of development with the ISO 80 films, like type 59, I'd start with 30 to 45 seconds and see what you get.

    It also gives a distinct golden cast, so think about your image selection more carefully than you would with Type 59.

    Use nothing but distilled water and treat it very gently. Avoid running water and simply change out tray water several times for a wash.

    That said, I love the stuff! Here are a couple of examples:

    This is from an infrared negative:



    And this one is from a color infrared (Kodak EIR) negative:

    Yes, shopping around for a good price is important - this stuff isn't cheap! Good luck. Thanks for the kind words, too.
