Our first hand made packs of new 8x10 film have sold out like hot cakes within a few days. As production of one pack of this large format film still takes a whopping 200 times longer than one small format film pack, resulting in 2 man-hours per pack, availability of this material will continue to be limited.
Now we are glad to stock our European and US warehouse with 200 new 8x10 film packs each. Get yours now to experience the magic of large format instant photography.

THE 8x10 DRY AGE KIT
NEW SNUG HOME FOR 8x10
Finally available in a large format edition, the Impossible Dry Age kit will support your 8x10 photos in drying down and making them stable. Minor shifts in tone during dry down are still possible, but will be dramatically reduced. Store 1-2 photos per bag, adding 3-4 silica gel packs and leave the photos in there for 3-4 weeks. Regularly check the indicator to see whether the silica gel packs are still working. Once they've become too humid you can simply reactive them by having them in the oven for 60 minutes at 100°C / 212°F.

DRY YOUR 8x10 PHOTOS THOROUGHLY
A newly processed 8×10 photo consists of a layer of wet developing paste, sandwiched between a negative and a transparent sheet. In this "sealed" configuration, 8×10 photos can take 3–4 weeks to dry completely, and may change during this period. The faster the photo dries, the less the images will change. In any case we recommend scanning all photos for archiving purpose.
Two ways to stop further development and stabilize your images:
Use an Impossible 8×10 Dry Age Kit to speed the drying process.
Peel the negative and transparent sheet apart to keep your photos truly black and white. Find all details in the 8x10 USER MANUAL
