IMPOSSIBLE ND FILM PACK FILTER
Staying in the shadow helps staying cool, and making use of the shadow allows wider possibilities for Impossible films . You can now easily use all PX 600 and PX 680 films in your SX 70 camera with this new, re-useable and nifty device:
The new Impossible ND Film Pack filter was developed to use 600 ASA Impossible Film in Polaroid SX 70 cameras. Inserting this filter on top of the Impossible film cartridge will adjust all PX 600 and PX 680 films to approximately 100 ASA and make them compatible with your SX 70 camera. It will also work with the new PX 70 film, as an alternative to the adjustment of the lighten/ darken wheel. This filter is easy to attach, detach and use and does not require any changes to the camera itself.
Step 1 - Store Cool!
Before departure and as long as the film pack is still unopened, make sure to store it at 5 to 18°C (41 - 65°F) to guarantee best image quality upon usage.
Step 2 - Packing Correctly!
Never squeeze a film pack or you will lose part of your picture. Always hold the pack by its edges.
Step 3 - Checking In!
Traveling with Impossible Instant Films through an X-ray scan does not harm the film. Any film below 800 ASA is save to travel through an X-ray scan.
Step 4 - Beat the Heat!
If the thermometer shows more than 28°C / 82°F, Color Shade images tend to turn towards orange/yellow, Silver Shade images towards brown. To prevent this drifting off the regular color spectrum, make sure that the film and camera are not getting too hot and cool the shielded images immediately after ejection from the camera - hold it against a cold drink can, put it in the fridge or even into cold water. And always, make sure to shield your images from light as they eject from the camera immediately!
Step 5 - Perfect Timing!
The color performance of Impossible Films depends on the available light. Natural light is perpetually changing in color, direction and quality. Don't shoot around noon but wait for mid-morning or afternoon light, which are best for instant photography.
