Just when you though it was safe to write Polaroid film off to the annals of history, The Impossible Project has reintroduced film for Polaroid cameras. At this time, the Impossible Project only produces black and white film, which is far easier to make than color film. Film is $21.00 a pack.
So, dig through your closets and attics, find your old Polaroid camera, and renter the world of analog photography. Rediscover the joy of not knowing what your photo looks like until you see your final print.
Will this new film find a market? I don’t know, but I’d love to hear from anyone who has used it.
