this past winter i refurbed a polaroid 180 so that i can shoot with it for fun. for me, polaroid pack film captures the "magical" experience of film photography without the hassles of roll film.
The Impossible Project has once again pulled off a minor miracle & designed & built a new Polaroid instant camera this year (thanks in part to Kickstarter).
The Impossible Instant Lab converts iPhone images to Polaroids. There's a shop close to me where I've seen it at work, & it's the real deal. I sincerely hope that this thing will enable them to scale up to where they can sell their film for less than two bucks a shot.
