However, the on-the-go teens got up and left....not taking their I-Zones with them. They moved on to greener and more digital pastures. Polaroid abandoned the I-Zone camera and I-Zone film in 2006. SInce then, these inovative cameras drifted into junk drawers and thrift shops all across the world.
The current state of the I-Zone:
1. Camera and film has been discontinued.
2. Legacy film has gone bad in the classic integral film way...dried up developing goop.
3. I-Zone.com forwards directly to the new Polaroid.com where you find very little information on the I-Zone camera.
4. The camera is easily bought used at thrift shops and auction sites and even new from Amazon (the non-availability of the film is glossed over).
5. Fuiji and Impossible Project folks have not indicated that they will take up the I-Zone film banner. This leaves your I-Zone in paperweight mode permanently.....or has it?
In this Instructable we will attempt to get your I-Zone camera off its lazy butt and start making exposures again by converting it to use APS photographic film.
Is it worth it? Probably not, but I never have let that stop me before!
