Article: The Impossible Project
When Polaroid stopped production on their traditional line of cameras and film a few years back, die hard fans of the brand scrambled to get their hands on the last remaining packs of film from eBay and the like. But once those packs were used up or worse, expired, thousands of perfectly fine Polaroid cameras became obsolete, doomed to a dust-collecting fate on some out-of-reach shelf. (You can still buy expired film on Ebay, but for exorbitant prices, and no one can vouch for the quality of photos you’ll get.) In the meantime, the folks behind The Impossible Project were busy working to develop their own brand of instant film.
