What caused this spread failure?

I picked up a pack of the new Polaroid 600 film for my Sun600 LMS since I do not know how long he has left, but I know my time is limited. While I'll live with the spread issue as it only one bad photo (plus you know, the flaw is unique) the others are fine. This camera has been around for like 2-3 generations so it's not new, but it's proven itself since it's survived under my use and my grampa. If anything it's a testament to how long lived the old 600 land cameras are, even if the film is more expensive because it can't use i-type like Polaroid Now.

Could this have been due to the fact the camera hasn't been used since they stopped making the original film and I didn't use it at all during the original Impossible Project era due to cost and batch improvements? It seems like now that I put a Polaroid Originals pack in there with the current Impossible Project formula, the camera just needed to be exercised again.

Yes, I did consider grabbing a few "expired" packs of the original formula from the old Polaroid but it's way too expensive and risky.

I will say if anyone wants to buy this film, don't buy expired unless you can burn the cash basically -- you're playing storage lottery now. I might gamble on that stuff but I want it to be from 2008/9 as those are the last batches. The rest are junk or very high risk.

For the new film from Impossible Project, plan on the first pack or two being a bum, or less then ideal results for the first time. What I found helped me is I will adjust the exposure +/- 1/2 (give or take) based on lighting which is why my first photo looked bad but my second one shown is fine (relative to the fist try which has the defect). Even the original stock from the old Polaroid had issues in low light since it's an analog format.

Don't let the fist misses stop you if you really want to use it. The current formula is nothing like the Edwin Land formula (you can thank our wonderful US gov't for restricting or banning the chemicals from the original formula as a outright ban and not using common sense).

@oldturkey03 have you ever see this on the Impossible stock or you've never used it?

Plastic parts have a finite life as normal everyday atmospheric exposure and plastics have a curing period right after they were made. New car smells were finally revealed from the chemical industry descriptions as outgassing, the continual curing of injection molded hot plastic. Great when new but years of uv exposure hastens curing until they become brittle and eventually breaking at unannounced moments. The chemical outgassing are the vapors given off new plastics in our cars, trucks and suvs. Not conducive to human health but was always sold as the new car smell.

A very old Polaroid instant camera has many plastic parts that has a finite life but beware of these plastics drying out over decades then breaking. Even when stored in attics, heat from unventilated attics accelerates plastic drying and becoming brittle.

I noticed snapshots of the Polaroids, presuming you're using either a digital camera or cellphone. Can you print those snapshots with a color printer as another way to create the equivalent of film prints but on paper. Photo quality paper is better too for longer lasting photographs. Even Polaroids fade over time. Digital electronics can duplicate photos with photo quality inks and papers, no different from outdated Polaroid instant film.

Last time I had an inkjet printer was what... about junior year of high school when I was running a Deskjet 842c after multiple pieces of junk that were new? It's been a minute. Those were the only 2 with issues, so I suspect bad film or non-use for years.

Technically I could, but I would need to get another inkjet (6 color, not 4) to achieve anything meaningful to justify the thing; CMYK stinks for photos with ink (unless you're not particular). I'd want something with CMYK/LC/LM or 7 color (6 color, but with +LK).

There are inkjet printers with photo quality inks with photo quality papers. There are also color laser printers. You might be surprised, progress as photography moved from Kodak/Polaroid to extremely high resolution megapixel digital imaging in cameras and cellphones to inkjet/laser printers with photo quality prints. Enough decades have passed to allow evolution in imaging processes. I would suggest visiting a Staples or other store and see if a printer (inkjet or laser) can print one of your favorite snapshots from digital camera or cellphone. Transferring data to a thumbstick, sd or sim card to allow interfacing with each printer to print an image. Some may accommodate a request to print on photo quality paper in 4x6 or 8x10 size. Maybe negotiating, buying photo quality paper and having each printer print to display their best attributes. It may take some time and effort to persuade stores to print photo quality prints but may be worth the effort if improvements overcome scepticism.
