Polachrome and other 35 mm films [edit]

Polachrome film in 135 cartridge and processing packaging.
In 1983 Polaroid introduced an "instant" transparency (slide film) system for still photography. Each roll of 35 mm film came with its own small package of processing chemicals. After the exposure, the film and its package were loaded into a small hand machine, called an "Auto Processor". [4] [5] The time it took toprepare a fully developed film for assembly ranged from two to five minutes, depending on the type of film.

Polaroid produced various types of AutoProcess compatible 35 mm film:

Polachrome was a colour slide film. It was based on the Polavision system and used the same additive colour (RGB filter stripe) process. A difference was that in Polavision the negative layer remained as part of the film after processing. It had a low optical density (up to 0.3), but still reduced the contrast of the image anyway. With Polachrome, the negative layer was removed after processing. [1] Professional photographers were instructed to make test shotsto evaluate the set up before the final exposure was made with their usual film. The distinctive muted colour rendition and the line structure that is visible in the enlargements, has in turn won a small public as a unique artistic medium. It remained in production for almost 20 years.
