Don’t Throw Away Your Polaroid Camera Just Yet…


The NYTImes is currently featuring a story by Carter Dougherty entitled “Polaroid Lovers Try to Revive Its Instant Film.”

Dutch scientists in a small German town are teaming up with an Austrian salesman to reinvent Polaroid instant film, which Polaroid stopped making last year. The group wants to “recast an outdated production process in an abandoned Polaroid factory for an age that has fallen for digital pictures because they think people still have room in their hearts for retro photography that eschews airbrushing or Photoshop.” They hope to start production later this year for distribution in the United States, Europe and Asia and are convinced there is still an eager market for Polaroid film packs.
