An Unopened/Sealed Pack of POLAROID POLACOLOR 809 INSTANT FILM 8x10 Inch / 18X24cm LARGE FORMAT EXPJUN93. 30 days from 25th November until on and around 23rd December 2019. Have a total of 4 sealed 809s and 1 sealed 891, alongside one opened box of 809 (exp JUN93).
Have used the open box to check the Pods on the white receiver sheet on the open box of 809 - pods appear good - maintaining their integrity (ie, not discoloured or leaking) and are flexible/pliable to touch (gel has not solidified) - see photos 8-12. I have spoken to Polaroid Originals and other Large format specialists ; by Polaroids own admission the original 809 can not be replicated by modern day 8 x 10 stock (in part for the chemicals used no longer licensed, collapse of Polaroid's supply chain and dismantling of manufacturing machinery).
In their experience they suggested to tips to get the most from the film. Gently massage the pods before shooting. Shoot film between 21-27 degrees centigrade at time of use. Consider longer exposure times (x2, x3).
