polaroid goes under : (

Sad - Polaroid is shutting down its instant film factories due to the overwhelming demand for digital cameras and the like. They already ceased production on instant cameras, and will only make enough film to last through this year. This really blows for the fashion industry, who rely on polaroids for instant unphotoshopped model shots, fashion show looks, makeup shots, and so on. And seriously...what will happen to roidrage?!

A photographer friend of mine told me about this the other day and i almost cry... this is sad indeed, and i totally wonder the same as you: what will it happen with the fashion industry that relies in polaroids so much??
I hope a new company will take over.

That's so sad :[ I love the instant polaroid camaras, and there's something so appealing about polaroid photos.

oh god no...

say it isn't so!

I would have thought that with Cory Kennedy prancing about with her supercolor poloroid over the last couple of years, that everyone would want a piece of the action.

God, I can't believe this, it feels like a big thing.

Sono production of the film? Ever again?

Don't model agencies pretty much solely support the poloroid "industry"?...

Honestly? Can it really be true? There is something so amazing about a polaroid. I'm quite sad that I never had the chance to buy or use one!

Re: anonymous
Well, I saw fashionologie's post as well, and I did notice the similarities...mostly because my post was up a few days before hers. So, fact check before accusing me of copying other peoples' posts, yes?
