Gone, Gone, Gone

Polaroid is dropping the technology it pioneered long before digital photography rendered instant film obsolete to all but a few nostalgia buffs.

I've often been late to the party and getting the news about Polaroid is no exception. While I don't do a ton of Polaroid shooting, I keep it for moments when I'm trying to achieve a certain look. I'm realizing that much of my style is a softer, old school type as I shoot more and more. And Polaroid certainly qualified on that score. It appears Fuji will still be in the game of instant camera film, but it won't be the same. Shooting Polaroid with my Bronica medium format still allowed me that whiff of film shooting (I have my film developed and then scan it when I shoot it) that I miss by being in the dark room. I'm sure many blogs have been and will be draped in black on this one.
