Here are my personal favourites ^ from using The Impossible Project's PX70 so far. They don't all really contain colour, but - to me at least - all have something very beautiful about them. I'm camera-lickingly excited for the future of these materials if those industrious chaps holed up in Enschede keep on the way they have been. I hope you all show them support by buying their films and giving them feedback.
~~All these photos have been posted to Flickr and Polanoid so just click on them to find them.
However, i've also taken some shots with the PX70 that just don't do it for me . And 'cos i'm stupidly vain I won't be posting them on the web anywhere else, so keep on scrolling to see what I mean. They're a bit lifeless, lacking in contrast and colour, and most importantly weren't very good photos to begin with. I reckon good advice early on is take shots of colourful subjects in good natural light with a normal exposure (that may seem obvious, but it's the last thing I normally do). Keep an eye on how they change over time and do let me know how you get on with this stuff when you first use it, won't you.

And DON'T FORGET. Send in your best PX70 shot to TIP by August 16th and become an official tester of the next versions of the film.
