Last batch of Polaroid will be February 2009

CNN's front page Monday night, December 8, 2008 has an story and iReport about Polaroid's sunset coming up in two months. Very sad. They interviewed a few people who run some of the Polaroid enthusiast websites, like Save Polaroid.

I'm just glad I picked up several hundred boxes a while ago! I keep them in a wine cooler I purchased specifically for this occasion. A lot more is in my pantry, mainly the black and white which keeps much longer than color.

Film article in Universal Hub - should have known you'd be the topic!

I may have to do this.

I hear that Fuji still makes instant film though?

Hi Kita, yes Polaroid makes packfilm for both the old 100/660 series cameras (they're everywhere... they cost about $10 to $30) and also 4x5 inch packfilm for those large format photographers who have a Polaroid 550 or Fuji PA-45 holder. If you want any help just holler.
