No more Polaroid… instant film – and MAKE’s look at Polaroid projects

It looks like Polaroid is getting out of the instant film biz, if you use these for art, fun or whatever stock up! –

Polaroid is dropping the technology it pioneered long before digital photography rendered instant film obsolete to all but a few nostalgia buffs…

Polaroid instant film will be available in stores through next year, the company said – after which, Lee said, Japan’s Fujifilm (FUJI) will be the only major maker of instant film.

Polaroid got its start making polarized sunglasses in the 1930s, and introduced its first instant camera in 1948. Film packs contained the chemicals for developing images inside the camera, and photos emerged from the camera in less than a minute.

  1. Is this out of reach of mere mortals or is it possible to make a work-alike for one (or more) of the still useful Polaroid film types?
