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.
A few weeks ago I posted that The Impossible Project came out with some experimental film called Cyanograph. It was a monochromatic all blue film and was made for use with SX-70 model cameras. It was relatively cheaper then their normally priced film so I managed to buy a few packs of it.
Below are some of the results of the film using several different cameras, though I believe the best came from a folding SX-70 SLR. The first few are from non-folding box SX-70 cameras and were mostly taken outside in sunlight.
This first photo was taken with a non-folding SX-70 camera with an electronic flash. I think that the contrast between the sheets and Mark came out really well and it’s one of the best lit photos that I was able to take.
The Impossible Project just launched some new experimental film for SX-70 cameras called Cyanograph. It is described as “experimental monochromatic, low-contrast all blue film”. The film just went on sale today, but I would expect for it to be sold out in the next few days. This was offered to Impossible Pioneers first and now it is being offered to the general public.
