The Demise of Polaroid Film

Polaroid recently announced that they were getting out of the film business. I knew that less photographers were using Polaroid but I never imagined that they would no longer be making this magical film. There are a lot of websites trying to save Polaroid film including Photojojo and Save Polaroid. A great Austrian-based company called Unsaleable sells a lot of Polaroid film including this fantastic Chocolate Film 80 which you use with a Holga Polaroid Back camera. I just love the tone and feel of this film.

Both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times featured articles regarding this subject. Click here for the Los Angeles Times article and here for the New York Times article.
