    Impossible Project announces 8x10 instant film coming summer 2012...

    They even have test pics on their site to show their progress! http://www.the-impossible-project.com/projects/8x10/

    I'm just wondering how much it will be...

    But you weren't wrong.

    Is this a pos/neg system or just a large print?

    Does it generate BOTH a positive and negative AT THE SAME TIME?
    Or no?

    99$ isn't bad for 15 sheets; it'd be cheaper than tmax.

    I don't understand how the polaroid 8x10 stuff worked; I wasn't in LF when that was possible.

    "Available in Silver Shade tones, this new integral instant film (NOT peel apart film) for Polaroid 8x10 holders awaits your testing, experience and feedback. One pack contains 15 negatives and 15 positives, for 15 impressive large format black & white images. The boxes also contain a quick start guide. The basis of this film is our 600 Silver Shade film with around 600 ASA speed. "

    Too bad they won't sell any to us poor unwashed. Pioneers only, whoever they may be.

    I've been told by Impossible Project that they will start selling 8x10 to the general public mid-July but probably at a higher price than their $99 test film.

    For the Pioneers, they had only 40 test film packs to sell and they sold out in a day, according to the same source at Impossible.

    I would say no it doesn't...it's based on their 600 ASA instant non-peel apart film.

    at a higher price than their $99 test film.

    When a European company sells the same product for EURO 99- or USD 99.99, you know 'instantly' where the market is, and who deserves a 25% rebate ...

    We also have prices like EURO 99,99, I don't know why the Impossible people have chosen a rounded price @99-
    Yes, our European gas stations know the trick of "the last-digit-fixed-to-9"

    I would be interested in product which gives an instant negative only in 5 x 4 and 10 x 8.
