Description

Introducing a direct to Mamiya RB67 conversion kit  for Impossible Project Impossible Labs.

You’ll be able to use all new Polaroid Film on the market ( itype film, type 600, SX70), as well as old stock Polaroid Integral film (type zero, type 600).

This is NOT for instax film.

This is all you need to either convert your own Impossible Project Lab into a Polaroid back for your Mamiya RB67 (any version). You will need a now discontinued Impossible Project Lab to do your own conversion. Does NOT work with the new Polaroid Labs.

If you find/have your own Impossible Lab, I can also do the conversion for you (at no additional cost) if you send me your own Impossible Lab – and can also replace the battery (at additional cost for your lab).

Here are instructions on how to disassemble your Impossible Lab for conversion. And here are instructions on how to convert the Impossible Lab into a Polaroid Back using this kit.

If you’re ordering only a kit, you should think about also replacing the battery in your IP Lab, I sell fresh battery packs and I have instructions posted on how to replace it!

I  am NO LONGER selling complete and fully converted Impossible Project Labs. Just conversion kits. Used market prices for this not long discontinued product have reached ridiculous levels. I am concentrating my efforts into developing a new back based on the new itype cameras, subscribe to my blog for news on it. Yeah I know Rezivot promised a new back too, let’s see their pricing :D.

The chemistry is down in the resulting prints, and the dark slide and automatic eject are preserved. The image will still be mirror reversed.

Also, be aware that because of the RB67 film mask (72x72mm) and since the Polaroid Image Area is 78x78mm, all pictures will have a think black border around them. Nothing do be done about that, that’s the way all RB67s are built (they’re for 6cmx7cm frames, it’s in the name).

All complete backs sold by me (as in you selected Add Impossible Lab) come with a new battery, and free lifetime replacement service for the battery.

You do NOT need a P adapter to use this on your Mamiya RB67. It mounts instead of the revolving back adapter (unclasp the Revolving Back, mount the Polaroid Back, clasp it back).

Here’s a short video on how to use a complete back.

Available in black only, with the  “check dark slide” “sticker” and the frame counter either in black or red (I noticed red makes is a lot easier to read), please state your preference. I usually make the frame counter arrow a different color than the dial (red on black or viceversa).

US/Canada/Mexico shipping is free, and the international shipping calculator should work now.

    1. i updated the stock!
      but please do keep in mind that any new orders will ship after may 1st, i’m on a 10 day vacation 🙁

  1. What type of film does this shoot? Can you clarify what impossible lab means and is this fully assembled vs unassembled? Is this the impossible projects’ film (the one that runs polaroid and what film stock – 600?). Does this work with instax? I cannot understand these points and have no idea what this is or is not.

    1. Great questions:
      – It shoots modern Polaroid Integral Film – itype, SX70, Polaroid 600 – as well as any old Polaroid 600, Type zero.
      – It does not work with instax = different film differend company (Fuji makes instax).

      1. Will you make a back that takes fuji instax film for the RB67? There was a Company that did and then disappeared.

        1. Hi Kris,
          Yeap, working on an Instax SQ back. Meantime, look for David Lago de Montaña in Facebook, he makes them (but he’s in Denmark).

    1. Hi!
      I’m already offering this for MUP and P600SE too!
      It only works if one has at least 10mm of backfocus or so.
      This happens to be the case with RB67, Mamiya Universal and P600SE. You’ll notice how these three systems were using the same original Polaroid Back for Packfilm.

  2. Any idea if the complete included kit will come back into stock, if not I can try myself just figured I’d look to see if stock for the entire package was coming back up

    1. Hi Adam,
      As soon as I find more Impossible Labs! I am unfortunately dependent on the limited inventory of these now discontinued polaroid processing platforms. I am working on an itype camera based design but that will not come around till September at the earliest.
      You can join a short wait list if you wish.

      Thanks!

      Alin

  3. Would love to be on the mailing list for the fully assembled kit or when the type kit comes out. Thanks for making such awesome things.

    1. Hi Emily,
      Unfortunately no, that’s the Polaroid Back for Packfilm (peel apart). You can use it on your RB67 as is, but with old FP-100C or Polaroid 667 film (or other similar film).
      You would need an Impossible Lab for this kit to work.

      Alin

    2. What should I do if I only got a RB67 and want to shoot with your polaroid back?
      I have no ideas about impossible lab.
      Thank you

      1. you can:
        1) look for an Impossible Lab on ebay
        2) add your name to a waitlist for a converted one :). Let me know if you want to do the latter !

  4. Hello I would like to be added to the waiting list for the film back with impossible lab. Thanks!

  5. Hello,
    Thanks for your great job!
    Please put me on the mailing list for the fully assembled kit.

    Thank you
    Jens Häusler

  6. Hi Alin,

    Please add my name to the waiting list for the complete/ready to shoot RB67 back.

    Many thanks

  7. Hello Alin,

    will you please add me to your waiting list for the complete/ready to shoot RB67 back, too?

    Best regards!

  8. is there a waiting list for (orders fully assembled) out of stock orders, if so how long ?

    1. yes, there is one, and i just placed you on it. however, i have no way of telling when i find enough labs to satisfy the demand :(. i am on constant lookout.

    1. I am taking a break from conversion kits orders. Let me put you on a list till I come back in August.

  9. Hi! I was interested in being added to the waitlist for the complete/ready to shoot RB67 back!

      1. I would like to order your Polaroid Film Back for Mamiya RB67 (Impossible Lab Included “no” version) , but I would like to ask you to ship it outside the United States. Could you email me a quote for the item?

  10. Hello.
    Would you please add my name to your reservation list for Impossible Lab conversion kit direct to Mamiya RB67?

  11. Hi 🙂

    I love shooting with my RB and I’ve recently started enjoying instant film. I came across your site only for the excitement to end as you are out of stock 🙁

    Can I join the waiting list for an assembled impossible lab?

    Is there a waiting list for just the conversion kit?

    Do you ship to the UK, and at what price?

    Keep up the great work, Thanks!

    1. Hi!
      Yes I ship to the UK, shipping rates vary according to speed. DO you have an IP lab to mod? I’ll take orders for those in about two weeks, I need to clear up the order backlog. Doe your lab have a good battery too? I sell replacements too.

      Alin

      1. Hi Alin!

        Thanks for getting back to me.

        I sent you a reply to the email you sent me and Onigiri.

        No, I don’t have an IP Lab. Unfortunately, they are very hard to get a hold of here in the UK. Do you check and replace the battery on all Labs before shipping?

        Thanks 🙂

    1. done! also, expect an email too (from alintolea at gmail dot com, that’s me, i have just received a shipment of IP labs.)

  12. Hey there,
    Same as above, I’d love to get on the waitlist!
    I can’t wait to get back into Polaroid on my RB67!
    I’d need the entire package as I don’t have an IP Lab to mod.
    Let me know!
    Regards,
    Paul
