You don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

As I'm sure you've all heard by now, the amazing novelty turned art form of instant Polaroid is no more. Film production will stop next year and camera production has already halted. Polaroid cameras and pictures have always held a fascination for me and, of course, now that I finally have time to indulge in this hobby (I swear, the past 10 years of my life have been a blur), it is being discontinued.

I have decided to take as many pictures as I can before this happens but, in the interest of the future, I have investigated some alternatives.

Now, nothing is the same as Polaroid, but has anyone tried any of these other options out there?

The fujifilm Instax camera line produces either "mini" or "wide" pics (depending on the camera and film you use).

And the slightly more novelty-ish and less artistic Polaroid portable printer:

PoGo photo printer paper is even sticky - instant stickers! Does this remind anyone of the gameboy camera? I totally had one of those. Now that's a classic.


  1. AHHH that sucks so horribly.
    You just can't beat instant Poloroids. :( They're classic.
    Well I feel your pain.

  2. Thanks for the empathy... is there a petition somewhere we can sign?


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
