The Impossible Project—keepers of the SX70 flame—has had a tough go of it, and its name has, at times, seemed a little too on-the-nose. The company’s first films, released in mid-2010, were maddening to use, and some of them produced images that degraded to nothing within days. Every iteration of Impossible’s product gets a little better, however, and this week we saw the first photos on Impossible’s latest film, called PX70. Here’s a test image, by Flickr user Manfred von Koreander (his copyright; click through here to see more):
It is too soon to say Impossible has all its problems licked (opacification being the big one). But it has come a loooooong way from those early products. This film looks almost as clean as Polaroid’s own 600. I am impressed, hopeful, and heartened. I am also headed down to the Impossible store, to get some of this stuff for myself. Nice work, guys. Keep it coming.
