Impossible Project PX 100 SilverShade On Sale Today!

Posted in News by Ray on 03.25.2010


After months of eager anticipation, the Impossible Project is set to begin retail sales of the new PX SilverShade monochrome film through their online store today (limited to 5 per person)!

Amidst the spectacular collapse of the Polaroid Corporation, TIP bought and preserved the last Polaroid plant in Enschede (Netherlands) to resurrect development and production of instant integral film for Polaroid cameras. 17 moths later, they’ve succeeded. The first to be introduced is a monochrome PX100 and PX600 SilverShade.

More info is available on their website.
