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!

Unusual but ok

I’ve been shooting 600 film a while now but bought a new Polaroid camera and thought would give the i type film a whirl. Image quality is as to be expected and lots of light is recommended. It’s creates that dream like image so many kids are calling out for these days. I find i type black and white to be the more complete product.

Polaroid Originals Film i-Type Colour ISO 640

Lovely film when there's enough light. You can achieve some really creative results. I wouldn't recommend even risking using it if there's no sunlight.

Great to still have polaroid around, film still has room for improvement though.

I shot a pack of polaroid 600 film (production date 2/2020) which is chemically identical to I-Type with the exception that the film pack has a battery. The camera I used was a Polaroid SLR 680. This was my first experience with Polaroid, after switching from Instax. Really impressed with the images. Much prefer them to instax because of the size and overall aesthetic of them. Colours seem to be ok, but not perfect. Portraits had good skin tones but landscapes had strong green/magenta colour casts. There is also uneven lightness across the image on a couple of the photos. I assume this is an issue with the chemical pouch. The dynamic range is also poor, shadows have almost no detail and highlights blow out easily. However, when you get a well exposed photo, all the details pop. I think the black and white might be better since it won't be effected by the colour accuracy. Definitely recommend this film, but know what you're getting into so you don't get disappointed when your results aren't perfect!

Not bad not good

Magenta overcast - that's what every shot I've taken with this film has. Also prone to over exposing. Not sure what makes this different from the 600 film, but 600 is far more consistent. Hoping that they keep working on this film, because the new iType cameras have a lot of exciting features that need to be taken advantage of.

Not quite one thing or another

This was a strange film to use - or possibly a strange camera (the new one step camera that takes both this and the 600 film). I didn’t think this one quite captured the lovely vintage feel of the 600 film but also didn’t quite offer the same clarity or speed (or value for money) as some of the Fuji instant films. I am definitely sticking with my Polaroid 600 film for now but will be interested to see if this develops further (no pun intended!)
