Polaroid Corporation announced in february that all instant films
(the first process that could make a finished print in 60 seconds)
will no longer be produced after 2008.
Even if it was expected, I became instantly saddened by the news.
This is the end of an art.
Polaroid (created by Edwin Land) introduced its first instant camera:
the Model 95, in 1948.
My favorite familly pictures will always be those fabulous unperfect polaroids. Hopefully for the last polaroid users, a spokesman for the company says there will be enough film in stock to keep shelves stocked until 2011.
