The NYT just visited the Impossible Project, a group of Polaroid lovers (which include Dutch scientists), who dedicate their time in bringing back Polaroid film.

Last time we saw these people, they leased a Polaroid factory and are trying to not just re-invent Polaroid film, but something slightly better.

What's interesting is that the "Project" was able to get ahold of vital pieces of technology because the man who held Polaroid's assets was arrested by the US. Polaroid's assets (including its name and IP) were sold off this month. [NYT]

I just bought a box of 8 picture SX-70 film for my old Sonar One-Step Land Camera, to the tune of 22 bucks from www.polapremium.com/. The camera was a find at my grandmother's former house some ten years ago, and I've still got no idea if it works or not. If it does, I'll have 8 chances to capture some cool 1970's esque soft-focus over saturated images. If all else fails, I'll put some vaseline on my dSLR and call it a day.
