    As a 30-something that grew up with a classic polaroid glued to his hand this is the revival i've been waiting for. Its not perfect by any stretcher of the imagination, but for right now, its perfect. Everything about the photo quality is just as I remember it. Development times are faster than the previous iteration, impossible project, but slower than original Polaroid film. All things considered its a little expensive for 8 exposures but you really can't put a price on nostalgia. I'll keep buying it.

    The only issue is being limited to ordering 3 at a time so far on both Amazon and through Best Buy. Since I purchased this and the camera to take photos of our new hires, this creates a problem of having enough on hand at all times. If I knew that before I wouldn't have purchased the camera. At $18 for only 8 sheets of film that's extremely expensive and takes away from the fun and spontaneous nature of the camera.

    I mean what are you gonna do it’s the required proprietary film for your camera. I might have gotten a pack that was a little expired or had been partially crushed or something, but the first 2 pictures looked like I was taking pictures of the rapture, weird color, cracking ink, something that looked like lightning, the ones that didn’t come out like that were fine

    For owners of original polaroid 600 models this film is what you're looking for! Polaroid Originals hit it on the head when they created this. Its much improved over Impossible Project film and provides much faster development times and more vibrant colors. The quality of the film gives a nostalgic feel as it is not complete crisp an absolute must for seekers of orignal film that don't want the headache of dealing with expired film and dead batteries.

    Good Film, Only 8 Shots

    I remember back in the day these packs used to come with 10! The counter on my old polaroid 600 even has a shot counter that goes up to 10. I hate that they only have 8 shots now, even the generic packs on Amazon have 8 shots. Anywho, these are great retro-looking film packs! I recommend using them with ALOT of light. These pictures look best when your shots have A TON OF CONTRAST!

    Bought extra film for my granddaughters camera for Christmas so she would have enough film. There is no instructions as to how to put the film in the camera. We couldn't tell which side was up or down, we had to try several different ways before we got it installed. They need to put instructions in the box.

    Best Film Available

    This is the best film available for original vintage polaroids. It’s not fair to compare it to the original film, but this is the chemistry we have available now. It’s new and it works fine. Shipping makes it lose one star *Some packs were open, but film was still good.* Like they were just pulled from the rack and the tabs opened.

    Love the new Polaroid Originals products. The chemistry its spot on, and if you want to do more (emulsion lifts, transparences) then this is what you want. Fujifilm is great for the color you can get but cant take apart the film. different design. I suggest picking both up for different reasons.

    Excellent Polaroid Originals Film

    This is for the Polaroid 600 and i-Type Cameras. It is a lot better than the Impossible Project film. The only thing I don't like is that it only has 8 sheets of film, instead of the 10 that originally came in these packs until 2009. Oh, and it should be less expensive, but Best Buy has nothing to do with this.

    The classic Polaroid

    I love this stuff in my vintage cameras. It's not perfect, but that is why I love it so much. Every batch has a bit of a different look. I've never had issues with pods bursting, the film jamming while being ejected, or a dead battery, and some of my cameras are forty years old.

    Too expensive! I personally don’t think all of it was worth it but it was a gift and they enjoyed the nastalgia, has a nice retro Polaroid look which makes photos look like they were from the 90s which is cool but you’re looking at like 2 dollars a picture and only get 8

    Good, but not equal quality to the original film

    It is nice to have fresh film available for my Polaroid cameras, however, colors are not as good as the original 600 film of the now defunct Polaroid Land Co. Also, developing time is longer, and the cost is about $2.38 per print. Hopefully, quality will go up and price will go down in the future.

    The quality is par for the course as far as polaroid film goes and same for the price so I'm definitely satisfied. The classic white frames always leave you with a crisp photo

    This film is pretty good. I've been using it since they were the impossible project. They have come a long way on improving it. However it does not compare with fuji film [the film you use for instax cameras]. This film usually gives you a faded "back in the day" look.

    My granddaughter found my old Polaroid camera that I had forgotten about, and did not know if it worked. I was amazed to find Polaroid film at Best Buy that fit my camera. My granddaughter took very nice color pictures on Christmas morning.

    The pics look nostalgic as in old school. The quality is good and in the white space of the photo you could write a brief caption of what the picture is about. Build memories in an album

    I am so happy to have found these at the store. I just recently got a polaroid camera and was in need of the 600 film. Even though I feel the price is a bit steep, I am very happy with my purchase.

    Both packs i bought of the 600 film got stuck. Exposed the whole roll and ruined both. I use an itype camera, and don’t have many problems with the itype film. This stuff is total trash. Wasted $30+

    The quality was as good as it gets for Polaroid and all of my pictures turned out great! Sometimes when I get film some of the photos don’t ever develop and they stay white - not the case with these!

    I bought these for my friend for her birthday. These are kinda pricey so it’s always nice to be gifted them and she loves it! Polaroids are so unique and special
