It's discontinued, that's why it's crazy. People who want to do image manipulation want it, since it was the last film it worked with. The prices will calm down when it's all old enough to be unusable.

Your only hope is an out-of-the-way drug store that doesn't know to rotate their film stock.

Unless you are looking to do image manipulation, look into the neutral density filter and 600 series film solution.

The replacement SX-70 film can be found here: http://www.unsaleable.com/instant_photofun/

It's not exactly cheap either. Buy a pack of this and use the filter on the pack with more readily available and cheaper 600 series film. You'll also get some more advice (in my opinion) if you post this in the Alternative forum here at Photo.net.

I hope that helps.

There are a number of different ways to modify SX-70 cameras to accept 600 film. None will give you the same 'look' as SX-70 but at least you can still use the awesome SX-70 camera.
