I bought some expired (July '03) Polacolor Pro100 film off eBay to play with and look at what it's doing!

The mess

I know it's not my film holder (545Pro) because I tested some of my good Polaroid 79 and it turned out fine. So what's happening? Anyone ever see this phenomenon?

Thanks for the help :smile:

prehaps it has to do with the age of the polaroid film,
it has been my experience that there isn't much wiggle room with the expiration dates with their products.

Typical of my experience will most Polariod films... Maybe this is why there is an expiration date?

I've found that expired colour polaroid is far more sensitive than black and white. But both products are sensitive to date.

Best to avoid buying any expired polaroid again. It's just not worth the hassle, aggrivation, and waste of time/money.

Sorry to not have better news for you,
