Testing Polaroid Type 55 Positive/Negative Film

Posted by Surplus Camera Gear on

No frills demo testing the efficacy of our stock of Polaroid Type 55 4x5 in Positive/Negative Instant Film (1) 20 Sheet Box. This case was among the last Type 55 film manufactured by Polaroid before they stopped production. Each box bears the yellow “Product being discontinued” label as seen in the main product image. The “Use before” date on each 20 sheet box is JAN 09. The test image was made with a sheet of film from a box that I had opened some three years ago; the boxes available for purchase are all still factory sealed in their original packaging.
