The gloves are off...

So we all know that Polaroid corporate are the idiots who decided to walk away from this amazing medium back in 2008 and The Impossible Project are the absolute legends who rode in on their white horses and saved Polaroid film from a uncertain death - so it comes as no surprise they are somewhat pissed off at Polaroid for introducing a new camera last week called the 300, a camera that only prints out 'business card'-sized instant prints after striking a new partnership with Fuji film... not the 1000 model promised that was compatible with the impossible projects 600 film. You can read the full story here.

People if you want to dabble in mini Polaroid's buy a Diana and get a instant back, don't buy this desperate attempt at cool that Polaroid have just released.... better yet get onto eBay and find a Polaroid from back in the day, you know from when they weren't trying so hard to impress the masses.

  1. They brought one of these 300 to a photo artworld party a month ago and not only does it look as ugly as a Fuji instax, the pictures are awful. Horrible. Plastic lens, bad color, bad aspect ratio, and tiny image. REALY!? Really.
