Polaroid 600 image bleeding! HELP

Postby Arielle » Wed 03 August 2016 / 12:31 pm

Hello all!

I am looking for some advice on image bleeding. I have searched, but i can't seem to find anyone having the same problem as me!

My Polaroid spirit 600 sometimes pops out images that have white smears across the bottom. I have attached some images (unfortunately it wont let me show you the fill image as the file size is too large). does anyone know what this is? I thought I may benefit from a Impossible Frog tongue, but wasn't sure if this is the solution!

Any replies very much appreciated!

Don't worry, you camera is fine.

We call this effect "flammèche" or "feu follet" in french. (spark or will-o'-the-wisp, thanks to google translate ;)).

All the IMPOSSIBLE color v3 films have this issue : http://www.polaroid-passion.com/galerie ... 285&from=m
Hope they'll fix this problem.

C'est joli, mais pas très efficace.
