SX-70's are going like hotcakes on eBay these days. Maybe this was a big scheme by Polaroid to discontinue the film to make the cameras popular again, at which point they remanufacture Time Zero again (:-p) badging it as the "original" and "true to the camera" film. But then why allow SX-70 blend to be made? Decisions, decisions.
I'm going to try this SX-70 blend, but just to be safe I'll keep my last pack of Time Zero in the refridgerator. Maybe I'll use it on my honeymoon, if it's not too far off.
So, has anyone here actually tried this film and tried manipulating it? Still haven't thrown my SX-70 away.

i want to try a pack of this blend stuff, but haven't had the time to check it out. I don't find black out lining to be my style of manipulation, but thought i should try it first hand
i still have two cameras with flash and have been thinking about getting rid of at least one of them as i have no interest in using 600 film or even the blend if i can't get it to manipulate in a manner suited to my style.
i find it hard to believe that polariod has discounted this film only to bring it back as a marketing ploy. This film is very complicated to make and if they had been making money they would not have discounted this product.
It is all interesting. But what kind of "manipulations" you guys talk about?
This is one of my own done on the old Time Zero film.
