2.75 stars. I love Impossible but still not worth the price tag. Disappointed.
By I. Hernandez
I was excited to see an "upgrade" from the previous Impossible Color 600 films. I also noticed that with Prime, it was a few dollars cheaper than getting it at my local photo shop. I have used all other Impossible 600 films and I'm unsure if this film was an upgrade and could even be a downgrade from previous versions.
The film has an expiration date of later this year. I used the film with the Impossible Lab 2.0 Impossible Instant Lab 2.0 Universal for iPad, iPhone, Android, Window Smartphones & Tablets with Color Instant Film + Cloth to compare it with Fuji Instax mini film Fujifilm INSTAX Mini Instant Film Twin Pack (White). I used the Instax Mini film with the Instax SP-2 printer Fujifilm INSTAX SHARE SP-2 Smart Phone Printer (Silver) in the comparison.
I compared these two films as I do not have the older generations of the Impossible Color 600 film. The Impossible Film tends to expire rather fast. The Fuji Instax film tends to have an expiration date 2-3X longer than the Impossible Film.
Maybe the picture doesn't do it justice but the Color 600 film leaves a lot to be desired.
Maybe the Fuji Mini film also leaves a lot to be desired too but I find that the details are more noticeable.
$24 for 8 photos
Takes 40 minutes for a near full exposure to develop.
Very sensitive to light. (Impossible suggests to leave it completely covered (even after ejecting it) for 6-8 minutes.
$12 for 10 photos (cheaper in different packages)
Takes 15 minutes for near full exposure to develop. 80% within a few minutes.
Not nearly as sensitive to light.
I keep buying the Impossible Film because I find the traditional (patented) Polaroid format to be much better than Instax Mini or Wide. The Wide has it's own problem, such as composition issues with the Instax Wide Cameras. That's another topic for another day.
If you're looking for a quick developing option to justify the $3 per exposure price tag, you're not going to find it yet with this film stock. Maybe I got a bad batch?
I will continue to support them as I am thankful they saved the Poloaroid--- but they still have a ways to go to catch up to Fuji, in both image quality, image processing time and price.
In an idea world, Fuji would work out a deal with Impossible to manufacture film for Impossible cameras and old Polaroid cameras.

Okay so this film is really great, I bought it for my polaroid 600. A couple things you need to know is that the film is very sensitive to light, put your photo in the box the film pack came in as soon as possible after ejecting the camera and then wait 30 to 40 mins to open it. The first 5 seconds the film is exposed to the light are crucial to how your photo develops. The filters this film creates on the photos are awesome, I uploaded a couple of examples. The photos are much better in person but you get the drift. Definitely get it.

I have taken a few photos with my instant camera with these films and they're great. The colors are great, granted that you take the photo in a well lit room or area. Love them.
I use this film with my Polaroid One600 Kenneth Cole Reaction camera. I know some people had mentioned that this film doesnt work with the One600 types but it has been working well for me. Only thing is that my frog tongue doesn't protect the film too much when it comes out so I just have to grab it quickly and store it in a dark box (I use the box the film came in and put tape on the top flap so it closes well) so that it doesn't begin to develop as quickly.
Love the colors on this film and I'm excited to continue to experiment with Impossible film!
