Giddy over Polaroid 300

Posted: 05/18/2010

I have to admit, electronics and hardware don’t excite me but I’d be lying if I told you that I wasn’t just a little giddy when United Parcel delivered a package from Polaroid today.

That’s me! Shot today by Joe Kolbek on Polaroid 300 film


Polaroid 300 Instant Film Camera


Polaroid decided to abandon film cameras and instant film in 2007 in favor of an all-digital line-up of products. With Holga, Lomography and The Impossible Project keeping film alive for the new generation of college-aged kids (and professionals too), I can’t help but think that Polaroid felt left out! (I’m sure their re-evaluation of film and its market share had some to do with their re-entry as well.)

On March 22, 2010 The Impossible Project announced the release of
their new film for Polaroid SX-70 and 600 film cameras.

Well, earlier this month Polaroid Corporation, with the approval of their spokesperson Lady Ga-Ga, released the pic-300 camera. It takes 10 pictures per roll on business card-sized paper (the film is similar to the old 600 and SX-70 type film.)

Here are some additional shots with my first roll of Polaroid 300 film:
