I don't know, but this is old. L
Polaroid do still make instant-print cameras, just slightly updated.
There's still a market for instant-pics (which don't need a PC / leave a trace on) - but I guess you pay heavily for them. Ever watch The Man Who Fell To Earth? L
Bowie? Alien looking to get water for his home planet? Years ago, but I remember very little of it.
That's the one, but he brought alien-instant-photo technology with him as I remember. And failed to save his planet... L
I challenge you to find a way to make homebrew film for this. You may want to enlist the help of chemists and photo hobbyists...
It should be available soon, since a bunch of enthusiasts acquired the machinery for making Polaroid film when the factory closed.
It won't be cheap though, will it? L
Knowing the pattern of DIY communities, someone's going to come up with a way to use their own urine and baking soda to make it work. Or something.
B&W maybe. But full colour is the sort of technology that could pay for it's self for a period in the not too distant past. Not now though. L
Beyond me, it would require resources I don't have / wouldn't spend large amounts of money on. Over to you? L
Granted, but you got finished prints in a few minutes. A full photo-lab in one small package. L
I wish film wasn't so expensive. I bought an old Polaroid for three dollars at a thift store, and got another for free at a garage sale. Film, however, costs over a dollar per shot, if you can even find it.
Oh yes. Part of it is the flat battery pack, some years ago they made stupid-sized pocket-torches (with the same) to support the plant. With little other use they cannot be cheap. If only they'd put a normal battery compartment in the camera, but this is part of the original load-and-shoot design. L
