    8X10 Polaroid processing with 81-01 no loading tray design 30 seconds ago

    Here I go again. Trying something for the first time.

    I have Polaroid 891 8x10, six sheets. I just exposed one.

    The processor instructions do not make sense to me. I have the OE manual. The unit is the blue AC powered 81-01 processor no loading tray design and the correct 81-05 holders.

    I have loaded the positive as best I could. Was I surprised when I lifted the holder up and find the positive on the bottom outside, next to the dark slide. This puts the dark slide between the pos and neg.

    OK, maybe that's correct.

    The next step is to put into the machine and push the button?

    How would that work. How does the darkslide get out of the way?

    I guess the rollers pull both the neg and positive out of the holder and through the rollers.

    I think I got it. By the time this is read I will have tried it.

    5 minutes development coming up...

    I am unhappy to report. No image. Dry Pods I suspect. Everything went as planned. 5 more sheets to try...

    Well, now I know to use it. Plenty of ways to mess up and I found them all. My film is all bad, I had 2 that almost worked. Mainly I wanted to learn how to use it and if my machine and holders work. They do, way better to waste these sheets than a $200 box of IP.

    This is my only 'image'. I put it on my lightbox, I didn't want to risk my scanner. This stuff also stinks badly.

    So, wait, the 81-01 processor *doesn't* use a loading tray?

    No it does not and does not need it, but you do need 81-01 to 81-05 holders.
