should I only use polaroid film for my transfers?greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread
I used to do image transfers on my Vivitar instant slide printer, with polacolor ER type 669 film and polacolor 2 type 108 film. I dusted off my old Vivitar this week and went to buy some film, but was told that Polaroid no longer makes those films. The camera shop suggested I buy Fuji FP-100c. I tried it, with terrible results. Not only did the film jam in my printer, but when I was able to make a transfer with it, it was mostly green. Can you help me? That was an expensive mistake!

I don't know anything about 108 film, but you can order 669 film from www.bhphoto.com and it should work with your image transfers. It is $9.45 plus shipping for a 10 pack.
Good luck! Angela www.angelawinholtz.com
