Title: Polaroid sx-70 One Step Rainbow Camera
Camera: Polaroid sx-70
Film: Impossible Project PX680 Color Shade
This was my first attempt shooting with the sx-70 AND using Impossible Project’s PX 680 film. The effect of the film gives off an artsy/vintage look to it, however, I find the film very unforgiving. After taking a few more shots, I noticed the films were slightly overexposed. Apparently the first few seconds of the development process is very crucial, it’s very sensitive to light. After reading a few tips and tricks from Impossible Project’s website, I was able to keep my films from being overexposed.
Overall, I think the film is “somewhat” difficult to use, basically it’s a give and take and you never know the outcome of the photo until it is developed, BUT, it is a real rewarding feeling if the photo turns out successful. What I think attracts die-hard photographers and artist to use this product(s) is the challenge and the anticipation it gives off. The end results of a photo/film is very unique and unusual, and it is ONE of its kind, in my opinion, not even Photoshop can mimic it.
Photographers, I do recommend using this product!
