Impossible Project Film Sensitivity without Frog Tongue

Impossible Project's site says that its film (presumably including its new film) is light sensitive after ejection. But the site also lists the Polaroid SX-70 Frog Tongue as discontinued. Bad combination. Does anyone know if the new film is in fact light sensitive after ejection and, if so, whether newer film will not be? Best alternatives, including DIY alternatives, to a Frog Tongue?

Hello,

The SX70 Frog Tongue never worked well for me :(.
Therefore I use this trick : http://vimeo.com/20367465 . It works pretty well on my SLR680.

They have improved their color stock significantly in that shielding is almost not required anymore, though I haven't tested their new black and white film yet.

That's right. The new films don't need as much shielding as before.
However, strong lights still require shielding. As I often shoot outside, I'm careful with the sun.

In most cases, flipping the camera upside-down as the film is ejecting is usually sufficient; just be sure to toss it in a box or some place dark ASAP for long-term development.
