What is Peel-Apart Film?
This film is called peel-apart film or packfilm – as you might have guessed it's called like that because you have to peel the picture apart after it's fully developed.

What is really interesting is that Fuji is still producing this particular film! It is available as color film and black and white film was produced until recently as well.

What does a packfilm Polaroid camera look like?
There are a variety of cameras that can take peel-apart film. My personal camera is a Polaroid Land Automatic 100, which was produced at the beginning of the 1960s. And it still works like a charm!
