    8x10 instant film is coming back via Impossible.

    Okay, so it may be early days but it looks like they're trying their best to get some new instant materials out there for all us LF shooters:

    I only hope they try to bring back type 55 and the like, now THAT would be pretty sweet!

    Well then, the if stuff works and doesn't fade too fast, I can start fire up my 8x10 processor and remember how to work the thing!

    At $570 per box I'm going to have to pass even though I own two 8x10 Polaroid processors. Ouch.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Haha scammer hipsters is all that is.... They can kiss my behind with their bogus, grossly over-priced, rapidly-fading, blotchy "film".

    Leave the dead alone, especially if you can't do it right.

    $570/15 shots

    bullshit.

    someone here mentioned about some actor that shoots 8x10 polaroid, maybe he'll buy some!

    I am looking forward to their new "integral" stuff, not sure what the pricepoint on that will be. They may also come up with a new "peel-apart" film...not sure. Not sure what the $570 is getting you, developer/reagent age is certainly relevant.

    $570/15 shots = $38/shot, which isn't cheap, but....

    US$570 is for a couple of boxes of old stock original Polaroid 8x10. The website does not say anything about the price they intend to sell the newly to be produced Impossible 8x10 stuff.

    Cheers,

    My wife knew my 8x10 Polaroid stash was valuable, so she kindly transferred it to the freezer!

    Hopefully the pods did not burst!

    Why $570? Are they gauging how much people are willing to pay for their stuff?

    Same here, I'm waiting to see how much the new stuff costs.
