Another appropriate question is; "Where do you get film to feed your Polaroid Camera?"
With the recent announcement that Polaroid is officially recognizing The Impossible Project, it looks like we will be able to get 600 Series film for a while longer. I do not yet know of the distribution system for that film.
Here in Latte Land, Glazer's Camera (www.glazerscamera.com) does carry Fujiroid in Fuji Film Type FP-100B, FP-100C, and FP3000B. I am not sure about any 4 by 5.
Here on the West Coast, Freestyle also carries instant film. www.freestylephoto.biz
Also Adorama and B&H both carry some, even a little 4 by 5 Fujiroid. www.adorama.com www.bhphotovideo.com
There probably are others in addition to those I know about. We may not be able to go into our local Safeway or Rexall or Walgreen Drugstore to buy it, but it is still available with a little prior thought and arrangement.
Now if I could just find the processing packs for my Polaroid 35mm Processing Box.

Well, I no longer acutally buy Polaroid brand film. I use the Fuji in my packfilms that I buy from Freestyle. I currently have bought my ImPossible film from their website but when it arrives at Blue Moon Camera where I have all of my color processing done I will just buy it from them.........
I hope Impossible starts up the 55 series again.
Can't make new 55. Not yet at least. The 55 machines were lost along with all the other peel apart machines. Only exception is the 8x10. We got those by luck since they were merely disconnected not dismantled. There's a long shot chance that 4x5 single sheet could come from the 8x10, but that's something that can't be answered yet. Then to see if we can figure out a Pos-Neg....also can't say right now.
And Polaroid doesn't have to 'recognize' us. We are our own company and are independent from them. The new guard there doesn't seem to want to talk about us more than they need to though.
Amazon.com has the best prices on Fuji, and it magically appears in my mailbox. I love the 21st century
KEEP YOUR ROLLERS CLEAN!
While in Portland, Oregon, just this last weekend, I detoured off I-5 wesbound on Lombard Street, and I located the Blue Moon Camera shop in Northwest Portland. They have Impossible Project film. I came home with a pack of the Spectra size to put into the Minolta Instant PRO. It will be fun to see how that old camera does this year. I did notice that it works out to $3.00 USD per shot with it, and I did learn that the Black and White film is still light sensitive when it comes out of the camera, and there was the recommendation to make up some sort of a light blocking receptacle for the ejected print that would start developing eventually, onto the front of the camera. A time period of 10 to 30 minutes was mentioned. It would seem that this is not quite the same as the old Polaroid made "instant" film.
Sometimes I think that life was more simple back in the days of the Type 47 roll film with the print coater in the plastic tube.

Anyone know where to get some Chocolate type 100? I will buy or trade some properly stored Sepia for some...!!
