    New Polaroid Camera

    Polaroid cameras and film are to be produced again: http://www.polapremium.com/news?date=2009-10-13

    And they'll be available before the Leica S2! I can see John Stovall doing a report soon.

    Re: New Polaroid Camera

    More on this wonderful news...

    "Polaroid cameras and Polaroid film should both go one sale by the middle of 2010, less than two years after the company collapsed for the second, and what appeared, final time.
    The instant cameras will be made in China by Summit Global, the company which bought the license to the Polaroid name after the company collapsed.
    The film, meanwhile, will be created by The Impossible Project – the company rescued from the ashes of the Polaroid manufacturing plant based in Enschede, The Netherlands. Over the last year former managers of the factory have worked, as mostly a labour of love, to recreate the magic of the film on a low budget..."


    Full story...

    I want one but it'll have to wait on the X1 and M9. I'm #12 on a list for an X1.

    I do hope they make a Black one that White one looks like it is just lacking a "Hello Kitty" sticker.

    But on reflection a "Hello Kitty" sticker might look so neat.
