Polaroid done with instant film, the world tears up

polaroid_wildwoodPolaroid was once the hipster of photography but their day is gone. Digital cameras have pushed the need/fun of instant photos to the wayside and the storied company is going to stop manufacturing the instant film at the end of this year. I’m sure most of us have pleasant memories waiting for the sub-par photos slowly emerge from the grey film. Those still enjoying the format should know that this news isn’t all that bad though ’cause Fujifilm still has a line of instant film cameras and they haven’t announced a production cut – yet. We wish Polaroid the best of luck in this fast paced, digital world and the namesake will always conjure up fond memories.
