Former Polaroid Employees to Invent New Instant Film

Although there have been new Polaroid camera knockoffs to lessen the pain of the discontinuation of the original Polaroid camera and its instant film, we all know that the Polaroid camera is irreplaceable. Well André Bosman, former Polaroid employee, and Florian Kaps, a former manager of the Lomographic Society, feel the same way and are now in the process of collaborating with others to invent a new instant film pack.

According to The New York Times, they purchased old manufacturing equipment from a Polaroid factory and are hoping to start production as early as next year. Here's what Kaps had to say about this initiative:

This is a last chance to keep another analog iconic medium from disappearing. This is a unique medium and it deserves a second chance.

Appropriately entitled The Impossible Project, Bosman and Kaps hope to revive the popularity and love for analog photography with their new invention.

eowynnie, Polaroid film IS still out there, at affordable pricing! I stocked up on some from www.adessoalbums.com. It's a site that not only sells 600 film but also sells Polaroid cameras and photo albums to put your Polaroid pictures in! Right now, Adesso is offering a “buy two, get the third FREE” sale on Polaroid 600 film. A friend brought this to my attention and I thought I’d share the news: http://www.adessoalbums.com/polaroid-600-instant-film-single-pack.html.

Yaaaay! I'm still sad that once my stockpile of film packs run out, my Polaroid camera will be idle. :(

I think this is great as well. I guess my only concern would be that there was a reason they had to discontinue it. I guess if you produced it in a much smaller scale without as much overhead you could do it. It would never be a real money maker though :-/ Good for them for taking on the task. On a side note, that's a good looking website.

Good Luck! I love Polaroids! If they could make them smaller and cheaper, it could work.
