Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3, 4

If you know us, you know we love instant film. A lot.

So, when we heard Impossible Project would be releasing two new & improved instant films, we jumped at the chance to give ’em a whirl.

First we met PX 680: A film that produces beautifully saturated prints that practically ooze with color.

Second, Black Frame PX 600 silver shade: A black and white film with sleek black frames for a classic, gallery-ready look.

Both films are so easy to use and versatile, your camera might write you a love letter for feeding it so well.

Plus: While experimenting, we found a technique that’ll let you transform your new black frame images into photo transparencies!

It’s simple, fun, and takes less than five minutes. We were so impressed with the results, we had to share.
