Created in 1973 the polaroid 8x10 inch is composed of many references of films, holders, processors and other accessories that you can find on the site. Features, videos and explanatory photos will complete this data to help you understand the use of this photographic process.

The 800 Series films are used for shooting with the 8x10 inch camera and require the use of a holder and stand-alone processor. The Polaroid 8x10" processor features a pair of motorized rollers to crush the pods of chemistries and thus develop films in a homogeneous way.

 

Indeed the 8x10" Polaroid holder does not have autonomous development rollers as one could find in the 4x5" format . The 800 series films were initially sold in boxes of 10 individual photos in their first version and then sold in boxes of 15 from the late ‘70s.

 

Polaroid Originals (formerly The Impossible Project) has chosen to return to offering 10 photos per box.

POLAROID 8x10 - The films

The Polaroid Originals films

Polaroids Originals' 8x10" films are integral films with no neutralizing agent and no woven trap at the top of the Ph acid sponge film as can be found on smaller formats, such as 600 or SX70 which have brown spots on the ends of the film due to the alkaline paste that remains near the negative/positive duo.

 

Originally, the Polaroid 8x10 film was detachable with one side negative and the other positive. This had the advantage of being able to peel the glued paw and thus remove the excess chemicals. Since 8x10" Polaroid Originals full-length films do not have these attributes, it is advisable to cut the trap area after development is complete. Warning: gloves are required to prevent chemicals from coming into contact with your skin.


Note: Provide 95° alcohol, type material, and paper towels to clean the processor rolls. The black and white version has a larger amount of chemistry than the color version. Wait until the rollers are dry before making a new development.
