    Availability of the holders and processors is going to be a huge bottleneck to their deal.

    And that sepia tone leaves much to be desired, if that's what it all looks like.

    As someone who managed to score a box of the new 8x10 Impossible film allow me to share some thoughts on this. The results I've seen so far are much better than on the BJP site. It's more B&W and uniform. Not perfect but getting closer. The results are much better than an old color film the seller included with the processor I purchased.

    Placing processed film in a drying bag as they suggests seems to have prevented the change to sepia. I've tried this with the SX-70 film with good success. The company is continuing to work on improving the results in B&W and color and have some a long way since starting.

    I used to think the holders / processors would be a big problem but it seems more and more are showing up for sale. I assume a lot of devices were sold compared to what current/future demand will be. The only unknown is how many were tossed out when the film was no longer.

    Many, many processors were tossed in the dumpster when the film was discontinued. However, Polaroid made bargeloads of them, so there are still plenty out there. They'll trickle back to the market once people clean out their basements and realize they can score $250 for that machine they never got around to using.

    The 8x10 Kodak I shoot is $15 / sheet, and it doesn't develop itself.

    I just posted a Polaroid Processor and an 8x10 Slide printer with holders in the For Sale section. Be a part of the Zeitgeist!
