Poladroid – simple yet great

As I grew up with it, I too was sad to see that Polaroid earlier this year decided to stop with making polaroid film (after stopping making the cameras in 2007).  Much was written about it in newspapers, blogs and magazines. Dazed & Confused, one of the few magazines I have a subscription on, even did a 24 spread on Polaroid photography.

Who didn’t love the sound that the camera would make or the anticipation of waiting for the picture to develop in front of your eyes? No need to miss it anymore with the free application from Poladroid. You can drag and drop your photos onto the Poladroid “camera”, and after a few seconds it spits out your unprocessed print (with the original sound!). You can watch it develop and then save and print it. Pretty fun UI! For  cool examples, go to the special Poladroid Flickr group. See my experiment below :-)

  1. Yes, it was a sad day indeed. Wanted to stock up on some Polaroid 72 but, aside from availability, boxes were so expensive! I mean, they were becoming more expensive than the cost of the chromes and development! Sigh, still have a few boxes of color Polaroid left tho. Interesting magazine, Dazed & Confused.

  2. Hi Kevin, good to see you’re still around here sometimes! Luckily my mom still has a little stock left, but it won’t last very long with me around :-) Dazed & Confused is definitly interesting, can you get it in the US as well?
