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!

Perfect for: Great All-Rounder, Portraits, Street Photography, Creative/Abstract

I prefer to use B&W Polaroid film as colour can be a little inconsistent sometimes, and this is a solid film for i-Type cameras (coming in slightly cheaper than the 600 version). The current version of Polaroid Originals' B&W can be a little hard to expose sometimes due to low latitude, but is generally decent with flash. It has a slightly warm tone to it which works well with portraits and candid shots.

In my experience it has lasted well past the expiry date - I've shot packs over a year expired and they were fine, so you don't need to worry about shooting it all at once.

Could be better

Some of the shots I've taken with the B&W iType film have been outstanding. Others not so much. There's room for improvement with the film. And the B&W tends to turn brownish over time. So expect a vintage sepia look after a few months/years.

Perfect for: Great All-Rounder
Enjoyed it

Used a frozen Polaroid Originals pack from 2016. Once you put it in, be sure to shoot it all in a few days, because the later shots I took had already partly dried up. The emulsion does not live long in these, but I'm glad we have something ;)
