  1. Interesting experiment typing on the photograph. It’s good to know one can now purchase film for Polaroids again.

  2. Yup, only one drawback — $20/8 pictures… (polaroid was always a bit expensive and this is the same….)

    On the other hand, when I stopped shooting color film… I was pretty much calculating $1 for every press of the shutter button… assuming I was lazy and said, “develop and make 4x6s of every frame…” counting the film cost.

    Nowadays when I shoot film (rarely, and usually B&W)… the processor does “develop and disc” — I get back negs and they are scanned onto a disc… so they can go right onto the web, but I also have permanent negs to print from.
