Normally, I preference posts about The Impossible Project by saying things like, “The Impossible Project has made the impossible possible.” Not today. No, today, I’m saying this:
Sweet Holy BeJesus On a Stick They are Selling SX-70 Film Once Again!
It”s not just the impossible becoming possible again. It’s real. It’s here. It’s in the store now, right now, as I type this. They have not only done it but, well, they’ve done it in spades. The film is back!
In case you have not been paying attention, the good folks over at The Impossible Project had a press conference yesterday. At this press conference, they announced they have started to manufacture and sell a new film suitable for use in Polaroid SX-70 cameras. It comes in sepia-tone and it’s manipulatable.
That means we can do manipulated Polaroids again. Maybe now they’d actually be called “Manipulated Impossible Project Film Sheets” but, like, you get the idea. Polaroids are back and better than ever.
Impossible. Ha! You guys didn’t fool me for a minute. I knew all along you’d be able to pull this one off (um…gulp….yeah right!)
Until next time…
I have read where film is making quite the come back among amateur photographers.
The gauntlet is thrown down…if you use this film, let's see what you can make of it.
Mythopolis, I hope I'm worthy!
Kala, I think film is making a comeback and Polaroids have remained very popular. The only thing I worry about is the profitability of such a project as The Impossible Project. Instant film is not cheap to produce and I hope the continuing demand will be there to not just get it started again, but to keep it going over the long run.
