i guess, those people putting them on ebay (or buying them from) probably know of the project.
still i think prices are way too high there, so look arround your local 2nd hand sources, i found much better prices there.
the impossible film is still quite experimental, so don't expect results like the instax.
don't forget IMPOSSIBLE had to start completely from scratch and re-invent the whole chemistry.
I've got maybe 15 packs of 665 in my fridge, so for me, for the moment, Polaroid remains an option. I'm trying to save if for subjects I think are worthy.

Also, from a handling perspective, though Polaroid advertised it as a handheld, my expereince over the decades has been if not tripod mounted, there was at almost any exposure speed the camera shake is evident even using a cable release.
Well, I know that if I clear a Fuji FP-100C or B negative and want to scan it, I certainly can't use a transmissive scanner that only takes 120 or 35mm. For this reason, I think the cheapest thing I could get is an Epson V700.
So from the perspective of buying scanners for the negatives, it might as well be large format. Only exception might be if you use a polaroid back for a hasselblad or something, then clear the negative and trim it. Then it's 6x6cm 120 format.
Haa, yes the Impossible Project has been making film for SX-70 long enough that my first batch already expired and dried out on me. Have to use it while it's fresh.
