Re: polaroid film question pods
if the pods dry out all is lost. If the pods are pliable images can
generally be enjoyed. I have used Polaroid film that expired 20 years
ago and was cold stored in a fridge (NOT FROZEN) and it was okay.
Freeze drying pods is bad...

There are people on this list with a great deal more experience
with Polaroid film than I have so maybe what I've observed was not
typical. A couple of times I've refrigerated Polaroid B&W sheet
film only to find that something had happened to the development
pods. This was well thawed film but the material in the pods had
solidified and no longer spread out on the film. I don't quite
understand what happens since, presumably, the pods are sealed
until broken by the processing rollers but cold storage does not
seem to work very well. Perhaps Polaroid color film is different.
ALL Polaroid brand film is "DI" Last stocks on market now. Fuji
still makes most flavors but US distribution spotty. *** grab all
you can while you can Mark
Don't bother, if what you want to do is store it for use after its
expiration date. It goes bad almost immediately, no matter what
