Polaroid Film Being Discontinued

The digital camera has done in Polaroid film. There's a website called savepolaroid that hopes that somebody will continue to manufacture the film.

And yes, the last batches of film are selling on ebay, of course. Although it's still selling on their official site with an official notice of its discontinuation.

I'm not one for "the good old days" when something clearly better arrives on the market, but it's true that looking at a polaroid picture creates instant nostalgia, even when the photo is crummy.

See the ABC News piece "Polaroid Goes Out of Style"

Who knew "shake it like a Polaroid picture" would date so quickly!
