Patriarch is the new Polaroid


READ ABOUT IT HERE.

POLAROID IS NOT DEAD.


However, even if it did die, I really, really, really heart my Instax...

Man I really hope they bring back some of the film that Polaroid discontinued. If they don't, how else am I going to grow up to be like my hero, Paolo Roversi?

Thanks for the news!

I hope the discontinued film comes back, too. I have enough film for 39 more polaroid pictures before my camera goes the way of the dodo.

i knew there was no way that instant film in all of its forms would ever go away. the rights to the technology will always be for sale to the highest bidder. it just wont be called polaroid anymore. as long as type 55 is around, i'm a happy camper. and bring back the sx-70 while you are at it. i will say calling it patriarch is pretty lame...

So there isn't any Polaroid film available anywhere right now? If there is, will you post it? I have about three that I have recently inherited and would love to start using them! thanks.

ah... i love polaroid. love love love it. i have so many reasons why i love polaroid...
1. i love not having full control of exposure
2. i love that it looks more like film than digital, but is quick like digital
3. i love color shifts i can't control
4. i love the square format
5. i love the nostalgic feeling
6. i love that it is not perfect
light/composition/exposure

i just love everything about it. please, do let us know if you hear anything about polaroid film being available.

Praises. My heart has been hurting and I have kept my film hidden so I am not tempted to use it all up. Blessed day.
