Impossible Project Color Shade PX 680 Polaroid Film

Instagram IRL: Impossible Project's Color Shade PX680 Film

You love your Instagram pics, but there's nothing like an old-school Polaroid to add an analog touch to your photography. If you were lucky enough to snap up a Polaroid 600 camera when they were cheap (now prices are well above $100), you can put it to good use with the latest offering from the Impossible Project. Called Color Shade PX680, this film produces amazing colors when used properly.

You should know by now that the old saying "shake it like a Polaroid picture" is a myth. In fact, this film should be shielded from light for at least four minutes after ejected, and left to develop on its own without the aid of shaking. It's a sensitive kind of film, but when developed (and it could keep changing for days after development) it produces fantastically retro images like the ones you see above. Each pack of eight shots will cost you $22, but is a fun buy for photo aficionados.
