Design: Shake it Like a Digital Camera? Polaroid Jettisons Last Vestiges of Instant Photo Biz



Ah, The Polaroid. This was the coolest thing when I was a kid, my family had an awesome Polaroid Land Camera with brown leather-like inserts and sonar (like a friggin' bat!). The whole 70s coked-out aesthetic seemed designed for the harsh unforgiving exposure of Polaroid instant film.

However digital cameras and cell phone cameras etc. have rendered the technology obsolete and Polaroid -- having stopped making the cameras last year -- will wind down film production this year.

I'm still shaken by this News - I just purchased two boxes of Type 55 - at $80 a box! That's 40 pictures...

I should probably buy more!
