    A fitting eulogy for Polaroid's ending film production

    PC World's eulogy to Polaroid based on it's many years of commericals.

    "Polaroid in its heyday reminds me of Apple--it was a company led by a charismatic, long-serving leader (Edwin Land) that made slick, innovative, somewhat pricey gadgets. And in decidedly Apple-esque fashion, it marketed them really well. So looking at a few vintage Polaroid commercials is an entirely appropriate way to mourn the end of Polaroid photography. Thanks to YouTube, we can do that right here."

    I'd been thinking about a polariod back for my Holga... So it goes....


    All is not lost looks like I might could use Fuji.
