This makes me sad, not because people won't be able to use Polaroid to take "instant" photos any longer, but because all of the other artistically important things you can do with Polaroid film will become more expensive (as stocks gradually run out) and, perhaps, eventually come to an end. To me, it's like discontinuing oil paint because you have painting tools in Photoshop."The company, which stopped making instant cameras for consumers a year ago and for commercial use a year before that, said today that as soon as it had enough instant film manufactured to last it through 2009, it would stop making that, too. Three plants that make large-format instant film will close by the end of the quarter, and two that make consumer film packets will be shut by the end of the year, Bloomberg News reports.
