Polaroid instant film cameras to be produced once again

October 13, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Polaroid has announced it is bringing back its classic instant film cameras, after abandoning its instant film business last year, and shutting factories in Massachusetts, Mexico and the Netherlands.  The company filed for bankruptcy in December, on it’s second run through Chapter 11 reorganization.

Polaroid confirmed that it’s teaming up with The Impossible Project to bring its classic instant film and instant cameras back to life in 2010 in Hong Kong on Tuesday morning.  The instant cameras will be made in China by Summit Global, the company which bought the license to the Polaroid name after the company collapsed.  The company released its first digital version of the traditional instant camera, the Polaroid Two, earlier this year. However, the company says it will be complementing its digital offerings by bringing back a range of original cameras and film products, including the Polaroid 600 instant film (photo top left) and the easy-to-use Polaroid One. The company has also announced that it plans to bring a new instant digital camera to market – the Polaroid Three – that will produce 4”x3” while you wait.
