With Kodak going bankrupt (or out of business or something like that. I know they dont make kodachrome film anymore.) I have been thinking about how sad it is to not have a little envelope / folder thing with a whole roll of film and the strips of negatives. My box of photos is in the second on the list of what to grab if there is a fire (sorry but the kitty has to be first!). I love how if you are lucky, there is a date stamped on the back. I also think about how fun it was when i had my Poloroid camera that shot the long rectangle photos that i took on my second trip to Hawaii. I loved the smell of those photos. I loved the waiting anticipation of everyone gathering around to see what the picture was going to develop into. And i loved that there was a big place to write whatever on the edge of the photo. I loved those dang Poloroids. Needless to say i have been mourning the loss of that slowly dying industry for a little while now.
So, imagine how excited i got when i came across this… on Photojojo.com. (by the way, this is a really cool little company that i stumbled upon that turns out to be based right out of here in San Francisco. It is a company i am going to keep my eye on. They find the coolest stuff and i think that they just may have the stuff to make it for the long run. Watch for a post i am going to be doing regarding a job posting of theirs and you will see kind of what i am talking about.).
It is a DIGITAL POLOROID CAMERA!!! YIPPEE!! I am going to be saving all of my loose change and maybe in a while i will be landing my hands on one of my very own! In the mean time, i am here to share it with you while i am waiting (and preparing for all of the fun and memories i am going to be able to create some day soon!)
