This is a sad day.

An essential part of our childhood is going into extinction.

Polaroid has announced that they will stop making Polaroid instant cameras and film.

For reals!

Instead, the company is going to focus on making digital cameras and manufacturing TVs.

Buy your Polaroids and film on eBay. They're gonna be a thing of the past real soon!

Such a bummer.

    Not so fast !

    People are going to pay out of the ass for Pro film and cameras that use instant film.

    Why Polaroids.. not everyone wants people to see their photos. While you can print your pics from a Dig camera at home, its not the same.

    You had better stock pile the film more than the camera. I am quite sure it has been out of active production for months. They will sell the inventory then no more.

    That's idiotic. They'll never get a good market share, and the Polaroid is a cool niche.

    for those who have worked in the photography industry this is not news to me, I have been a photgrapher for 3 years and worked in several studios and labs that develop pics, we stopped selling poloroid like 2 years ago and thats when they told us poloroid was phasing out instant film and cameras'

  70. Duh says – reply to this

    First of all, you need to get your facts together. Polariod will continue production of the product through the end of this year. They're currently looking for another company to take over production of the film, and possibly the cameras. Even if no one decides to produce the film in place of Polariod, Fuji makes the film too, so it's NOT going to be a "thing of the past" just yet.

    71

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

    Polaroids are all I use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. Schpooge says – reply to this


    72

    That kinda sucks. I wanted one of them ever since I was a kid and now that I can finally afford one they get canned.
    Just bought a Minolta X700 a coupla years ago too and now that's obsolete.

    74

    Yawn. Is this news?

  75. hnybny says – reply to this


    75

    Seriously people, its not a big deal. The film is already made by Fuji and Polaroid will probably be selling its camera license to someone else. Don't freak out.

  76. goddess says – reply to this

    wat are all the emo ppl going to take pics with now?

  79. sexy white boys says – reply to this


    79

    WHITE PEOPLE DON'T EAT WHAT THEY FUCK

    The reason why white people are against eating cat and dog is
    because they love to fuck them and profit from it.
    Many animals are raped and sexually abused every year by dirty Europeans.
    White people love to watch their bitches fucking animals in beastiality pornos.
    White people love watching their women being degraded and sucking
    horse dick.
    White people are sick,immoral dirty fucks.

    Japanese eat whales
    Chinese and Koreans eat cat and dog
    Africans eat mud
    Europeans and Americans rape animals.

    BAN BEASTIALITY.

    What The Fuck. Thanks perez I seriously just went on ebay and am going to stock up.. the only thing that's shitty is that the film totally has an expiration date so eventually it's inevitable that they'll run out. We should try to convince them to sell it online only because I know one of the reasons it go so expensive was because people were stealing it. However, people were only stealing it because it got so expensive..

    This is the worst thing I heard in a long time. Taking away Polaroids is as bad as taking away a painters brush, or a potters wheel. Just because it is not as popular as other photographic mediums, does not make it any less important.

  84. ev says – reply to this


    84

    F.Y.I. They stopped actual manufacturing of the cameras a year ago

    Polariod digital cameras suck!! I had mine for about 20 minutes when I realized how bad it was and returned it the next day.

  88. jack says – reply to this


    88

    looks like jenny craig will have to start using a digital camera for their before and after photos….I wonder if they are easier to touch up than the polaroids?

    this really pisses me off. i was going to buy a bunch to have on the table at my wedding reception!!!

  90. Kelly says – reply to this

    Don't bother hording the film, Fuji will still make it. You can buy some at B&H Photo.

  91. Laurel says – reply to this

    SAD! It's a tradition in my family to take a polaroid of each person on their birthday. We have them all lined up on the side of the fridge like a timeline of us growing. I wonder how long polaroid film lasts? I might have to get my mom to stock up before they stop making it! The film is really expensive though - about $1 per picture.
