Polaroid SX-70 B&W Film 8x
Polaroid SX-70 Film
Polaroid SX-70 cameras work a little differently and that's why they have their own type of film. SX-70 film has a lower ASA, which means it needs a lot more light to get a good photograph. It's also the reason behind all those dreamy colours and textures, which artists adore. All folding-type cameras (except the 680/690 SLR models) use SX-70 film.

Store chilled, shoot warm
Temperature affects how the film works. Keep it stored cold in the fridge, but never freeze it. Ideally you should let it adjust to room temperature before you use it. That’s around 55–82°F (13–28°C). When it’s cold out, keep your photos warm in a pocket close to your body while they develop. Or if it’s a hot day, make sure they stay cool.
Shoot with the light
The more light in your shot, the better your photo will turn out. Instant film loves light, especially natural light. Use the flash for all your indoor photos. For best results we also recommend using the flash for outdoor shots, unless it’s a bright sunny day.
Develop in the dark
All photos appear blank at first. They’re most sensitive during this time, so don’t bend or shake them. Shield them from the light, and place them face down as they develop. Keep B&W photos shielded from light for about 1 minute, and color film for about 6 minutes.
Care for your camera
Your camera has a set of rollers inside the fi lm door. Each photo passes through these rollers as it’s made, so it’s important to make sure that they
stay clean. If the rollers get visibly dirty then gently wipe them down with a soft, damp cloth.
