Look at that, it's February already! I took a bit of a break from the old blog but I'm slowly getting back into it.
Things like this help:
**From Apartment Therapy**
The new PIC-1000 will work with the old Polaroid Color 600 Instant Film. The new model comes in metallic plastic or a retro wooden finish, and features a self-timer, flash and even red-eye reduction. Thanks to The Impossible Project consumers will be able to buy new film for these new Polaroid cameras. Units are expected to hit stores this year so be on the lookout.
HOWEVER...there seems to be a delay.
I'll be waiting with bated breath until March 22nd for further details.
From The Impossible Project site (which should be spell checked):
It is not for nothing that Alexander was called the Great, Ivan the Terrible and our Project the Impossible. Bringing back Instant Film and saving analog Instant Photography from extinction is not a breeze - it is rather like constantly scraping past an adventurous abyss and breaking down barriers.
The latter has currently to be done at our factory in Enschede, where an unexpected surprise of impossibility within production occured on the weekend of February 6th. This undesireable fact is now forcing us to reschedule our timetable - the NYC press event on 22nd February has to be postponed. The Project leader's Florian Kaps and André Bosman give themselves one more month to cope with the Impossible. On March 22nd 2010 they will disclose whether or not their Impossible Project will be possible.
