I saw it and commented. So how much Polaroid do you have left? Can you still get it? What happens to Shen-Hao when you run out?

I have about half a box of the color stuff (type 79) left, so maybe 10-12 sheets. I have a full box plus another half of black and white type 53, so maybe 30 or so of that. I can still get another box or two of this stuff, but it is getting more scarce and more expensive. A box of Type 79 is between $80 and $90 a box for 20 sheets. The type 53 is more like $60.

When it is all gone, I'll just shoot film in the Shen-Hao. Color and B&W are plentiful and cheap. Just don't get the instant feedback. Developing B&W is easy, and I'll try color next week.

Yikes! I checked B&H and they list type 79 as "discontinued," so no more from them. Adorama has it, but for $110 a box! Freestyle has it for $85! This color sheet film developing better go well, cause it looks like the color Polaroid stuff is history for good. A sad day.
