Impossible 8x10 with a Polaroid 81-05
I made a short instructional video demonstrating how to load, shoot, and process the new Impossible Project 8x10 Instant Film with the Polaroid 81-05 film holder and standard Polaroid 8x10 Processor. You can download a PDF instruction manual for the 81-05 holder below.
If you have the Polaroid 81-06 Holder then you must also use the 81-09 Loading Tray.
I made myself a checklist that I follow. At $20 per shot mistakes can be costly.
- Open the 81-05 Holder
- Load Negative (“This side up” towards dark slide. Orange tabs on the two dashes.)
- Close Holder
- Pull out Protective Sleeve
- Check Rollers
- Check Focus
- Close Lens
- Insert Film Holder
- Remove Dark Slide
- Cock Shutter
- Replace Darkslide
- Slide Positive Into Film Holder
- Wait 5 -10 Minutes
