Polaroid Spectra (Instant/Polaroid, 640 iso) User-Review

I found lot of spectra film already expired from 2005 and 2007 and you know what? I am just lucky to have a Polaroid Spectra camera myself!

I like this instant film because it is a general-purpose, high-speed, medium-contrast film for high-definition instant colour prints. It is balanced for daylight and electronic flash exposure. Also produces clear sharp prints in less than a minute under a wide variety of ambient temperatures.

Firstly, I tried using the Spectra expired in 2005 and the result is more like yellow and vintage colour. Maybe it’s been too long beyond its expiry date and I am not sure how this was stored or handled previously. And after that gave the pack from 2007 a test and surprisingly the prints came out ok. You can see the vivid colours in the picture like the green, red, yellow, black, white and the others between the spectrum.

This experience made me totally happy and in fact I am deeply in love with this Instant film!
