I recently bought a stock of color and black and white film for both SX-70 and 600 Polaroid cameras as I was running short on film and wanted to try the last generation of film. Yesterday was a sunny day and so I brought a SX-70 camera and a pack of Impossible SX-70 color film produced in January 2014 (01.14 marked on the film pack).
I wasn’t really impressed with the results, I was expecting better color rendition. Even though the weather was sunny it was also pretty cold, so I think that could have been the matter in the color rendition. There is a green-yellowish color cast in highlights and a pink-purple cast in shadows. This really reminds me of the old “PX-70 Push!” film and kind of bothers me. The blue of the sky is totally missing this way. I will have to test the same film in cloudy weather and let it develop in warmer environment, and try shooting with studio flashes. I hope to get more accurate colors, if not I will simply learn how to get the best out of this film with lighting and filters. I’ll test the 600 color film soon too and let y’all know.
