No more shaking it like a Polaroid picture. The Times reports that Polaroid is getting out of the instant photography business.
After a move, I lost my Polaroid camera that I got for my Bar Mitzvah. But up until a few years ago, it was my main camera. It was perfect for taking really close up pictures [and not much else]. Now those cameras have since gone on to be quite the hipster go-to for backstage pictures and even wedding pictures. And the cameras seem to be flourishing on Ebay.
The Times reports: “The company, which stopped making instant cameras for consumers a year ago and for commercial use a year before that, said today that as soon as it had enough instant film manufactured to last it through 2009, it would stop making that, too.”
Here’s a news story on the company.
