Time Capsule

I found this little gem, a blogpost from 2009 written by Seth that serves as a nice time capsule and also maybe the original seed of PPP. This is from 9 years ago and there’s still Polaroid film available. I believe this is pre-Impossible Project. So maybe there’s hope for the peel-apart fans now that Fuji has discontinued both the BW and Color FP films. If the history below is any lesson, then at least those films should still be circulating around for quite a while.

I’ve removed most of the links because they just didn’t work anymore and/or they crashed my browser. But if you want, here’s the original post.

As photogs and artists continue to “mourn” the loss of polaroid film, I thought I’d share some places that are keeping the faith. First, there is polanoid.net. A user generated site based in Europe that posts all kinds of polaroid albums and goodies. There are projects and open galleries to participate in; lots of fun. They also used to sell film, but that is now being handled by POLAPREMIUM.

Polapremium is a polaroid “affiliate.” They scour the globe for all types of polaroid film and cameras. Each item is for sale (with no substantial markup) and there is a countdown of availability.

Save Polaroid is an online petition, tin cup soapbox site that has the latest and greatest news/rumors about the fate of polaroid film and patents. Go, sign up and maybe someone will pick up where polaroid left off.

Like Fujifilm, who is releasing the INSTAX system here in the USA finally. Buy ’em at ebay, lomo, or soon at B&H photo.

Last, but not least, POLAROID and their Zink licensed POGO camera. A digital instant printer that has wireless capabilities and will print a 2″ x 3″ image from computers, cell phones and digital cameras. No transfers or manipulations, but it beats the preview on the back of a digital camera anyway.
