The Impossible Project, the ongoing effort to keep classic Polaroid cameras alive and well-fed, has added a splash of color to its catalog with three new special edition SX-70 that films sport gold, silver and colored borders instead of the usual white.
The gold and silver editions are pretty much self-explanatory. But the “color” option is a bit of a “wheel of fortune” deal — each of the eight exposures in a film pack has a different color border.
The films, which work with any SX-70 style camera, are on sale now priced at $ 23.50 for a single pack of eight exposures or $ 67 for a three-pack. A special three-pack with one each of gold, silver and color frames costs $ 56. According to Photography Monthly, all three films feature the Impossible Project’s latest color protection formula for “improved colour saturation, a high level of detail and sharpness, and stunning image quality.”
Formed in 2008, after Polaroid decided to exit the instant film business, the Impossible Project brought a film production plant formerly run by Polaroid to ensure that the estimated 300 million Polaroid cameras still in circulation could keep shooting.
