What caused this spread failure?
I picked up a pack of the new Polaroid 600 film for my Sun600 LMS since I do not know how long he has left, but I know my time is limited. While I'll live with the spread issue as it only one bad photo (plus you know, the flaw is unique) the others are fine. This camera has been around for like 2-3 generations so it's not new, but it's proven itself since it's survived under my use and my grampa. If anything it's a testament to how long lived the old 600 land cameras are, even if the film is more expensive because it can't use i-type like Polaroid Now.
Could this have been due to the fact the camera hasn't been used since they stopped making the original film and I didn't use it at all during the original Impossible Project era due to cost and batch improvements? It seems like now that I put a Polaroid Originals pack in there with the current Impossible Project formula, the camera just needed to be exercised again.
Yes, I did consider grabbing a few "expired" packs of the original formula from the old Polaroid but it's way too expensive and risky.
