Happy Polaroid Camera Day!

Say cheese! Did you know that the retro-chic Polaroid Camera has its very own annual holiday? In 1937, American inventor Edwin Herbert Land became interested in polarized light and established the Polaroid Corp. which manufactured camera filters, sunglasses, and headlights. Land later introduced the first Polaroid Camera, which delivered black and white pictures in a matter of seconds. Not only was he the inventor of Polaroid Cameras, but he also invented the process of creating instant color photographs in 1963.

Although most of us have traded in Polaroid Cameras and manual point-and-shoot cameras with high-tech digital cams, there are fun new cameras like Zink's Digital Camera/Printer Combo, that boasts the same point and print technology that a Polaroid has.

Do you know what year the Polaroid was invented?

To find out,

The Polaroid Camera was invented in 1947.

The Zink thing seems reasonable So why oh Why is Polaroid holding out on an instant digital camera? I mean what a bunch of BS. I want a Polaroid with a nice small screen that I can choose the pics that I want to instantly print out (preferably on Polaroid film). Is that so hard?
