New Polaroid Camera Available!

After Polaroid discontinued 600 film, lots of dudes like me curled up in a corner and cried for a while. You didn't take pictures with a Polaroid for photographic reasons; you took it for the instantaneous satisfaction of having a hard-copy photo in your hands, no matter if the colors were wrong or things were poorly framed. Don't even get me started on the fun of self porn-photography with Polaroids: the fun is passing around the pictures right then and there, without having to be annoyed with how long the pictures take to pull up on the computer.

Polaroid has come back with new technology in what appears to be an old box. Shaped like several different Polaroid models from the 80s to today, this new camera is wholly digital, but with a new inkless-printing system that gets you an 'instant' 'photo' right out of the camera. Kick ass, Polaroid...kick ass. Too bad it costs an arm and a leg; the awesomeness of Polaroid was that you could pick up a $1 thriftshop camera and $10 worth of 600 at White Drug and have an awesome time. I'm sure price will come down someday; gotta fleece the early-adopters, of course.
