Since I am an Impossible Member, I sometimes get emails to try out some of their experimental film or film that is still in the early stages before it goes into mass production. I have reviewed some of their other film in the past and you can check two of them out below:
I think both of those films were pretty great and they were a lot of fun to work with. The Impossible Project has made some other experimental films in between which I have regrettably missed out on, so I jumped at the chance to try this new film they are calling Duochrome Black & Red Film. They claim it is a similar formula as their regular black and white film, which is my favorite. I like it because it develops much more quickly than their color film and is much less sensitive to the elements, such as temperature and light.
I have had my SX-70 camera for a few years and I really love it. This review is on my own very early version of the original Polaroid SX-70. It is the first single lens reflex or SLR instant camera that was manufactured by Polaroid starting in 1972. Many variations were made and eventually Polaroid produced cheaper non-folding plastic box instant cameras that also used the SX-70 integral film.
Before I moved to California and traveled a bit I managed to purchase some new experimental film from The Impossible Project. It was a completely pink film, or as they called it a monochromatic magenta. It was very similar to their Cyanograph Film, which was completely blue. I bought 2 packs and I brought them along with me to my trip to Ireland and Spain. The film was made for 600 series cameras, but I used it with my SX-70 folding SLR camera with a Neutral Density filter. The photo above is of Slane Castle in County Meath, Ireland. Many great concerts have been performed on the grounds including U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The above photo was taken in Barcelona Spain in Camp Nou. It was a pretty hot and sunny day, and I was surprised that the photo came out as well as it did without it being completely washed out. You can just make out the stadium seats spelling out MES QUE UN CLUB.
