The Impossible Project To Start Selling 8x10 Large Format Instant Film

You definitely shouldn't shake these giant Polaroids

The large format film photography community is a relatively small, but very dedicated one. Smaller still is the subset that shoots instant Polaroid-style sheets. But, that group will surely be happy to hear about today's Impossible Project announcement.

Starting at the end of the month, they'll be selling packs of their PQ 8x10 instant film with 10 exposures for $189. It's certainly not cheap, but this kind of picture-taking never has been and that's part of its allure.

Polaroid introduced their 8x10 stock in 1973, but it has since been discontinued. The new version works with all the original equipment, however, so if you happen to have a large-format camera with a full Polaroid back and processor, you're in luck. If not, you can still pick one up on eBay for under $100.

The Impossible Project will be showing work shot on their new stock at their art space this month to celebrate.

Again, this is an extremely niche product, but it's the kind of thing that helps keep photography as dynamic and interesting as ever.
