The Awesome Polaroid Look-a-Like

Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Don't have any polaroid camera?!
You can download and try the awesome poladroid beta software.

Poladroid creates Polaroid-style images from your photos. It's so easy and a lot of fun. Drop your photos onto the Poladroid "camera," and after a few seconds, it spits out your unprocessed print. Watch it slowly "develop," or speed up the process by -- you guessed it -- shaking vigorously.

You can create an image at any stage in your print's development by double-clicking and selecting "Take a sample." When your print is fully ready, a red "x" appears on the bottom.

This application, while in beta, is a whole lot of fun. I dropped a dozen pictures onto it in the first five minutes and the results are so great.

Look my result :

Don't Let PolaroiD die..!

Wednesday, May 6, 2009
For a generation, the Polaroid camera gave near-instant pleasure to millions of users around the world,but when digital photography came along in the 1990s – with instant images and the ability to edit and delete pictures before they see the light of day – Polaroid was doomed, its iconic white-framed snaps apparently defunct.

When Polaroid announced last February that it would stop production of its instant film, it seemed the much-loved camera was gone forever.

Why save Polaroid Film?!
It is extremely difficult to come to any sort of consensus about this question – “Why Save Polaroid Film?” In fact, there are as many reasons to save Polaroid film as there are people who use it.

"Polaroid film and the process of making photographs with Polaroid film is inherently imperfect. These imperfections make every Polaroid a unique piece, never to be replicated exactly." dave

"..watching a Polaroid picture develop is like watching a memory form right before your eyes. It appears out of a hazy nothingness and slowly forms into a beautiful but often imperfect image. A picture that mirrors the imperfections of life and memory." Sean

"I must confess, I am in love with the square. As in square format photography. And no other camera has promulgated the square as widely or as faithfully as the Polaroid SX-70/680 series. I cannot imagine framing an image any other way. Losing these cameras from my arsenal reduces, in my eyes, my artistic choices." Tod

"..why should those of us who shoot instant film have to give that up? I don’t want my instant cameras to turn into nothing but collector’s items! Before there was digital, there was Polaroid. Let’s keep instant film alive." Shelly

"Polaroid is personal. It happens in your body and your hands, from eye to machine to finger, needing no external interference, no other intelligence. Polaroid is unique. There will never be another image exactly like the one that just shot out of your camera and that developed as you watched. There are no reprints, only reproductions. This one is all you get; good or bad, perfect or (most likely) not. Like so many things in life, it is what you make of it." Cait

What can you do?!
