My friend Adrienne actually sent me this article and we are both very excited! She was also the one that got me interested in Polaroid a few years ago. I didn’t know about the older models such as the 680’s, and the SX-70’s
I did want the Polaroid that took sticker pictures, but by the time I was able to get one, they had discontinued that product.
There was news that Polaroid was going to stop making their instant film in December 2008, but there were a lot of websites and groups that popped up such as http://www.savepolaroid.com/
It looks like there is someone that will continue to make the film (see article below/click on the photo for the link)
My favourite line of the article is:
“The project is more than a business plan; it’s a fight against the idea that everything has to die when it doesn’t create turnover,” said Mr Kaps.
this is the 680 Adrienne got me for Christmas last year-ish . . . Love it!
