by Thomas Preyer

We are kicking off the new year with an exiting new series of posts. This series is all about the little things you need to know about instant-photography.

Preserve your film

Instant-film is full of sensible chemicals. To help preserve you precious film for as long as possible, you have to follow a few simple rules.

This is how previously frozen film looks like... Not cool! Okay, somewhat cool ;)


  • Always store your film at a cool and dry place, i.e. your basement or fridge.
  • Never freeze the film!
  • Try to keep the storage conditions at a constant level.
  • Use Impossible film within a year.
  • Film is for shooting, not hoarding. Well, a little hoarding is okay :)

This is how I store my film...
