“Help me Impossible Project. You’re my only hope.”

Polaroid Type 500 Instant Film

After discovering the defunct Polaroid Type 500 Instant Film format (along with the awesome Polaroid JoyCam & Captiva SLR camera), I tried to acquire Type 500 film, only to find it almost impossible to find.

Polaroid JoyCam

Impossible…that’s it! If anyone could re-manufacture 500 film, it would be The Impossible Project! After all, these guys have the Polaroid JoyCam on their site. It won’t be long before they make their PX film for Polaroid 500 cameras, right? Right?? Right?!?!?

Sadly, no.

Hello Impossible,
With the thousands of Polaroid Captiva SLR and Joycam cameras in the world
combined with the growing cult around Polaroid 500, will Impossible produce
new Type 500 film?
Best to everyone at TIP,
