Alas, Polaroid Type 55 positive negative film is no longer made. It was rated around 50 ISO on the box which, in my eagerness, is what I exposed the image above at. Great for a well exposed print, but possibly a mistake for a negative if you want to print from it.
Polaroid type 55 positive negative film is wonderful teaching tool. Able to provide a 4×5 black and white negative for enlarging, as well as a positive print, it is an exception material for use in the field and at workshops.
My workshop film was getting old and I felt it needed using soon. With an expiry date of March 2006, saving the film, which I had kept refrigerated, seemed increasingly problematic. I need not have worried, all the images processed perfectly in my Polaroid 4×5 back.
