Well in 2008 the Polaroid company discontinued production of their instant film. This left a lot Polaroid enthusiasts without a place to acquire the film. Where to buy? eBay? The film was gold and was selling for the price of gold!
The Impossible Project, formed by a group of European Polaroid fans and ex-employees, worked hard as a labor of love to bring back the film. The results? They will start producing film and some Polaroid Instant Cameras in 2010! A new digital Polaroid will also be on the market.

Porter is a photographer and has a fabulous blog, the Porter Hovey Polaroid Project , where she shares Polaroid photos that she's been shooting for 4 years. She's a young hipster on the east coast and has a love for the good old Polaroid.
I'm thrilled that the Polaroid is coming back. Just shows that we still crave nostalgia in spite of these digital times!
