Explanation of dark & light settings

All Polaroid cameras we sell have a ‚dark & light‘ setting built on them. It’s either way a wheel (SX-70, SLR 680) or a slider (600, Image/Spectra).

Impossible’s instant film is a newly developed material. The ASA is a bit higher than the original film and therefor, it is important to put the settings in the following:

 

  • Bright Sunlight:

Polaroid 600 - slide to 1/4 in the dark

Polaroid SX-70 - slide to 2/3 in the dark

Polaroid Image/Spectra - slide to 1/4 in the dark

 

  • Normal Daylight:

Polaroid 600 - keep the settings in the middle

Polaroid SX-70 - slide to 1/3 in the dark

Polaroid Image/Spectra - keep the settings in the middle

 

  • Shadow in Daylight:

Polaroid 600 - slide 1/4 to light

Polaroid SX-70 - keep settings in the middle

Polaroid Image/Spectra - keep the settings in the middle
