Video: SuperSense One Instant Packfilm Is a Major Disappointment

The SuperSense One Instant packfilm is disappointing in so many ways.

Years ago, Fujifilm discontinued their peel-apart film–otherwise known as packfilm. It was instant and for years had been used by professionals shooting film to get a preview of their exposures. But, it experienced a bit of a revival when people started to get back into Instant film. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to keep it alive. And Fujifilm instead does Instax. But, the folks over at SuperSense decided to recreate it themselves. They’re a small team mostly working on a passion project–and it shows. I personally backed their Kickstarter a while back and received my film last year. But we were super busy, and it was frigid out, so summer 2020 just seemed like the best time to test is. So how did it do? Well, I’m pretty sad.

The Return of Peel Apart Instant Film Is Close, First Batch On its Way

There are now nearly 2,000 ONE INSTANT films (and counting) ready, as production is well underway to keep up with the 18,000 Kickstarter pack films.

Each time we get news from the SUPERSENSE team about the progress of ONE INSTANT pack film, it feels like opening presents on Christmas Day. In their latest Kickstarter update, they tell us production is “cruising in 4th gear” and has now completed 10% of the whopping 18,000 pack films ordered by backers. With the coming weeks and months set for “a full-court press, 5th gear, mad dash, cartridge making frenzy,” the first batch will soon be out the door for delivery to First Run backers. The update, as always put together by Christopher, also showed that the 1,977 completed ONE INSTANT pack film cartridges are now being packed really nicely. First, the triple packs are slid into light-tight black bags that resemble coffee bean packaging. “These bags not only look good, but they provide a light-tight and secure home for the films,” he said.

HOLY CRAP PACKFILM IS COMING BACK AND THIS IS HUGE OMFG!!!!

This Kickstarter is probably our last chance to ensure that Packfilm returns to the world; let’s not screw this up!

We’ve previously reported on Florian Kaps being hard at work to bring back packfilm–and now we have learned we’re at the final crossroads. Today, him and Supersense are announcing a brand new Kickstarter campaign. This campaign is asking for funding to get the film production back up and running. For the uninitiated, Kaps was one of the folks behind the Impossible Project which later became Polaroid Originals. Without his help, much of the film for the old Polaroid cameras would be gone. This new peel-apart pack film is going to be called ONE INSTANT.
