R.I.P. Polaroid!!

If you still use the iconic Polaroid camera--whether to shake it, shake it or actually take pictures, this is your last call to buy film!

Polaroid just announced that it has ceased making the film and after its all gone, there will be no more. They estimate the supply will last about 6 months.

STOCK UP PEOPLE!!

Sad, I loved the instant gratification. I guess you can still have it, it just takes a few min longer (and you have to carry your printer around with you).

My husband's grandmother uses Polaroid all the time. Next time we call her, we're going to tell her to stock up. Thanks for the heads up!

That sucks!!!! We have a Polaroid and we use it all the time for parties, holidays, etc. The immediate gratification of an instant photo in your hands to pass around is fun - and without the "how do you work this thing" from the crowd....

Thanks for this thread. My grandmother uses Polaroid all the time, other cameras are too complex for her. I'll need to get her a big box of film for Christmas.

This will cause some issues w/ taking the kids to see Santa after this Christmas, or at least it may take even longer now.....I have fond memories of polaroids as a kid too.

Now that I think about it, this is really stupid. Just from the responses so far, there's still got to be a market for them.

This sucks.

I agree with the whole "instant gratification" feeling.

I think a lot of 'moments' will not be as genuine anymore due to digital photography taking over.


Such a loss

Wow, just went to look for some film on ebay - $100 for a pack of 15 and that's for an expired film! I don't know if it's always been this expensive as I've never bought any before but that's pretty crazy. Does anyone know if they make digital cameras with like one or two buttons max ?

Oh I loved polaroid camera when I was little! I have lots of old polaroid pics! So sad!

We had to search for a polaroid camera to purchase for my work & our manager had to search for days to find somewhere to actually purchase a polaroid camera!
