  2. "Perhaps I don't understand the question. Both are (nominally) fast
    panchromatic films; although the Polaroid was a color film, that
    emulsion would be sensitive to all colors. Presumably there would be
    some far infra-red light where they would not respond. Far infrared
    is not convenient to view unless you have an IR detector."

    Thanks, Peter, let me rephrase/ explain further....

    I have a "portable darkroom" actually used to process x-ray films and I'd
    like to be able to use it with either Polaroid 600 instant or Fuji fp-3000b
    film. The darkroom's original purpose was to allow for fast processing of
    dental x-ray b&w film. There is an amber cover that allows the processer to
    see what occurs as the film is processed through the solutions. I was
    asking if I could process the aforementioned (actually safely work with, not
    process) the instant films in this portable darkroom, viewing through the
    amber window, without either/ both of the instant films becoming exposed.

    Thanks,
    Deshawn
