I absolutely love Impossible Project's 600 type film! The color film tends to be more unpredictable than their black and white film with bits of magenta and sepia hues showing up unexpectedly which to me is definitely an added bonus to using this type of film. They have kept the classic shape of the polaroid film. I also have a Polaroid land 104 camera which takes Fuji pack film FP 100C and 3000B and find this type of film a bit more predictable and more flimsy as compared to the Impossible Project's film.

          Comments about Impossible Instant Color Film for Polaroid 600-Type Cameras:

          The images are not perfect and are not crystal clear, but they are fairly accurate and the color variations give the images character. This film is great if you want to take unique and artistic photos.
          The film is delicate, sensitive to light, and pretty expensive, but I love it anyway!

          I use it with my One Step Close Up 600 Polaroid Camera.

            This product worked very well for me. I read the detailed and easy to follow instructions inside and kept the film chilled until ready to use. It was my first time using impossible film and was pleasantly surprised by the sharp, contrast of colors. With not many frames to work with, my only suggestion would be to take a lot of time and consideration before shooting. Some of the images I took came out overexposed and slightly off in color.

                Our daughter is getting married in October 2014. She would like a Polaroid picture of all her guests. I searched and searched for this film and B&H Photo had it in stock. I ordered it and loaded it into the vintage camera and it work beautifully! The transaction was smooth and shipped fast. The quality was outstanding !

                This film is super stable, colorful, and even beautiful. I am so happy that IP has been able to advance their chemistry and technology. This film is warmer than old polaroid, and still a bit sensitive to temp, but no biggie. It does take a while to develop, about 35-40 minutes, but I guess good things come to those who wait. Since digital is truly instant, why not let this analog medium take it's time and make us slow down a bit.

                  Comments about Impossible Instant Color Film for Polaroid 600-Type Cameras:

                  Impossible is on the right track. Prior versions of their film were an experimental work in progress with inconsistent results. The most recent versions work magnificently. No more undeveloped spots. Rich, accurate, saturated colors. And no more frog tongue is necessary. There is, however, still room for improvement. First, I'd like to see 10 shots per pack and, second, I'd like to see a more reasonable price. Finally, I'd like to see the film available in more locations.

                  Photos keep coming out either damaged or blue. But since it's the only film on the market it's what we're stuck with I hope they make something better soon.

                    Comments about Impossible Instant Color Film for Polaroid 600-Type Cameras:

                    I got a Polaroid 600 one step for a gift back in 2000, I only ever ran 2 film packs through it (which was the original Polaroid 600 film). Finally after many, many years I am able to use it again. I have done a comparison shot, one which was taken in 2000 and one that was taken today in the same spot. When comparing the two keep in mind that the pictures will not have the exact same look as the original Polaroid did, this new film has a 'vintage' look about it. I personally love the 'vintage' look, since it gives my photos a unique look. The picture I took today actually looks older than the one I took in 2000. One other thing I noticed about this film compared to the original 2000 Polaroid film, is that the impossible film feels thicker, more durable. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why they can only fit 8 in a pack verses the original 10 that it used to be. This film is great for fun quick pictures to show off. Just keep in mind that it does take about 30-40 minutes for the picture to come out, and make sure that it develops in a dark place. Also if you are taking pictures outside in the cold be sure to put it in your pocket as it develops, or it will take significantly longer for the picture to come out.
