I dropped my old SX-70 a couple years ago, bending and warping various components while cracking others.  :-[

But I just bought a refurbed replacement from the Polaroid Originals (formerly Impossible Project) folks. Along with a three-pack of film (2 color, 1 b&w).  :D

What are the results like with the latest film ?
The first two packs I tried a year or two ago were effectively useless.

I kept my sx-70, so somehow saved 400$.
:-)
On the other side: I had 6 packs of original film, expired 10 years or so. Always wanted to keep them for special occasion. Only to realize now, they are spoiled of course. Or at least the output is very "artsy".

We'll see when the camera & film arrive. Should be later this week. My old SX-70 was on its last pack of original film when I dropped it. Haven't yet tried the new stuff…I've read it was inconsistent earlier on but has improved recently.
