Polaroid Originals Film Spectra B&W ISO 640
A wonderful black and white film to bring your Spectra Polaroid camera to life. Fantastic contrast and the timeless look of B&W, one of my favourite films for portrait shoots. NB: check your camera type and make sure you're buying the right film format (600/Spectra/i-Type/SX70) - check on Polaroid Originals if unsure!

Polaroid changed consumer photography in the 60s by condensing all of the darkroom processes and chemicals inside the camera itself to create the first "Instant" photography. Founded in 1937 and run by Edwin Land for four decades, the company was famous for its culture of engineering-based innovation, but unfortunately like Kodak and Fuji it failed to cope with the digital revolution. Bankruptcy in 2001 was followed by the company being sold off and wrapped up. Fortunately for photographers everywhere, the last factory producing their instant film in the Netherlands was purchased by "Impossible" who had to reinvent many of the chemicals and processes but kept producing. Then in 2017 "Impossible" bought the rights to the old name and have rebranded as "Polaroid Originals" with a new line-up of films and products that will bring your instant camera to life!

I used the monochrome version which gave very good results
I have used this as a test film in a couple of old spectra cameras and it gives some lovely monochrome pictures which don’t ever veer far into dramatic black - really nice for a soft portrait shot or a clear outdoor scene. Speedier developing time than the colour version too.
