With the discontinuation of Type 100 film by pretty much everybody, with the final nail in the coffin coming from Fuji in 2016, finding film for your old Polaroid 100-400 Land Camera became pretty impossible unless you wanted to spend an absolute fortune on eBay. There has been at least one attempt to revive the format, in the form of One Instant, but it’s also pretty expensive and appears to have been sold out for quite a while now.
A newly developed product by Clément Grosjean and his team, however, takes a different approach to keeping these older Polaroid cameras alive. Instead of releasing Type 100 film, they’ve designed an adapter that lets you use your Land camera with either SX-70 film cartridges or i-Type film without a battery. It’s called Newland and it’s launching through Kickstarter.
