These guys are trying to keep Polaroid photography alive by selling film and remaking some of the old cameras. In a way this technology is better than current digital because almost as soon as you take the picture you can see it and have a hard copy.
Polaroids also have a certain reputation. For those of you too young to remember the pre-digital era, once you took a picture you had to take the film somewhere to have it developed. This meant that with normal film other people got to see what you had taken and they got to see it before you.
With a Polaroid, the shot is taken, the print comes out of the camera and within a minute you have a finished photograph without taking it to the chemist. So, Polaroids were good for those ‘moments’ that you didn’t want to share with too many others.
I’ve never actually used one, so does anyone have any experiences with Polaroid photography – ones that they don’t mind sharing?
