    Polaroid 779

    Has anyone used Polaroid 779 film? It's supposed to be an "improved" version of Polaroid 600, kind of like the consumer/pro dual product line of other film manufacturers. It's still available:

    And it sells for the same price as the 600. I'm just not entirely convinced it makes a big difference, but if anyone would care to comment, I'd like to know what they think.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Supposedly a variation of this is used in the SX70 Blend film replacement for TimeZero film. I have seen examples that were a bit cooler overall tone, with perhaps slightly more contrast than 600 film.

    A neat alternative usage for this is cutting and pulling apart the print. Then you can wash and rub off the chemicals. This leaves a transparency with irregular edges. Further rubbing or scratching on the back can give other effects.
