(don’t) shake it like a polaroid

I guess the news is a few weeks old, but I was very sad to hear today that Polaroid, who quietly ended production of instant cameras some time back, has also ceased production of Polaroid instant film.  There were always a few weddings a year that provided a Polaroid and a few stacks of film cartridges for the guest book table, so guests could have fun while signing their name.  I’m sure that other technologies will rise to take its place, but tonight I raise a glass and toast, to the little machine that inspired so many of us.

  1. Sigh … it is sad to see it go. End of an era, for sure.
    But there are cool new digital photo booths like http://www.usnaps.com that will also be really fun to have at receptions and events … hopefully they’ll be as inspiring and instantly gratifying as the Polaroids of yore!
