Polaroid film was awesome, basically you took a photo and the picture came immediately out of the camera, and then you could watch it develop before your eyes. There is not really a digital alternative that can yet do this with such speed and in such a small package.

However despite this and despite Polaroids legendary status and its legions of obsessive followers, not to mention the amount of business who still depend on instant film in one way or another, Polaroid have ended production of all Polaroid film. Other manufacturers are still producing Instant film.
