well the pink tint isn't too much of a problem but i find it hard to make my pictures look good with push because of lighting.
is there a special ND filter for my polaroid? or do you just use any? again.. i'm not very experienced with this yet ^_^
Cool, I’m super glad you like the pink tint, lighting is so hit and miss sometimes and can be a challenge. I can assure you that it is totally worth the effort to learn. Try to take pictures in as sunny as possible :)
for my polaroid sx-70 camera is the 'push!' film the best one to buy? or can you get film for it that is colour shade but not the push film. I read that push film gives the photo a pink tint, and some of my photos are very pink and i just wondered if you could get normal? I've looked around but i'm still new to the whole film thing so i am quite confused! :)
There are currently 3 types of impossible film that you can purchase for your SX-70 type camera.
PX-100 Silver Shade (this is a black and white-ish film that is ISO 150)
PX-70 PUSH! Color Shade (this is a bit older generation of colour film)
PX-680 (the newest in colour film but is ISO600 so requires ND filters or modifying your camera.)
The PX-70 PUSH! is a bit older generation in chemical formula thus has some problems with colour and tints etc. Its not bad when you have really good lighting…but even slightly cloudy can mess your colours up! PX-680 is made with the newest chemical forumla and gives really good colour results. But once again will only work on your SX-70 camera if you have a Neutral Density filter or have the camera modified to accept ISO600 film.
My advice to you would be to either buy a ND filter and some PX-680 film for best colour results OR just stick with PX-70 PUSH! but be very careful with the lighting conditions, but no matter what I believe that some of the pink tint will still remain. (you can always photoshop out a bit of the pink tho)
This is the first time the Impossible Project has made any color shade film for Image/Spectra/Type 1200 cameras, and I expect it to be almost exactly the same as PX 680 Color Shade First Flush, which is to say awesome. Strangely enough, IP is not calling this first flush, even though its defects and characteristics are the same as its PX twin.
