Polaroid Is Back!

It looks like Polaroid instant film and cameras are coming back! Polaroid film was discontinued last year. This created quite the uproar. For many people, Polaroid film was reminiscent of a simpler form of instant photography. Polaroid film and cameras will return midway in 2010.

Heck, this makes me want to get a Polaroid camera! There are some really cool Polaroid photo projects. What’s really great with Polaroids is it’s instant! You can get the photos right away. Almost like a precursor of what it would be to have digital photography. Speaking of which, the new Nikon D3S was announced. It costs $5,200 and can do up to 102,400 ISO. Sounds incredible. Personally, I’m fine with my D200. I’ll upgrade in 2010 or 2011 and keep the D200 as a backup camera. (via pica+pixel)

    Polaroid stuff ‘feels’ different from anything else. I know this is a strange thing to say about an inanimate medium but I am sure plenty of others will agree with me.

    I know. I remember when I had one when I was a kid. It was loads of fun. There is something very warm about the colors that come out of those Polaroid shots.

    Where did you hear it was coming back? Do you have a link to news or purchasing site? I’m curious to know if the film will fit the Polaroid cameras that were recently discontinued. I was disappointed to find out that Fujifilm, who was going to start up the instant film production in Polaroid’s absence, decided to release their own version of the instant camera and film, which meant that my old Polaroid would still be obsolete. This post has given me hope!

    It was a really bad time for them to discountine the Polaroid, seeing as the style is really coming back. Just the look of Polaroids are so funky, they would have hit it big…and will now that they’ve brought it back. Yay!!

    Think how sad it would have been to listen to Ooutcast “Hey Ya” in 10 years and have to explain to a child, “Well there used to be this camera….”

    Shake it like a polaroid picture!

    I hope they make some product design adjustments, though.

    11 comments! Wow!
    Yeah, this is awesome news. There have been some rare, genius photographers who have worked with Polaroid. I know one in Montreal, who founded the magazine Tokyo Journal back in the early 1980s.
