We, the artists and photographers whose work relies on Polaroid instant film types and cameras, have recently had our preferred artistic media taken away from us. In a recent article we learned that Polaroid is, in fact, interested in licensing its technology so that some other interested party may continue the manufacture of its instant film types. In particular, we are targeting Fujifilm, which seems like the most likely candidate, though we would be glad to present this petition to other interested parties. This is an art form which should not yet die. Please, sign to help keep the instant film types available to artists and photographers!

Sign the Online Petition

www.ipetitions.com/petition/Li…


Also, feel free to write to the likeliest two candidates to carry forward the manufacture of our magical films to let them know how you feel:

FUJIFILM U.S.A., Inc.
200 Summit Lake Drive, Floor 2
Valhalla, NY 10595

ILFORD Imaging Switzerland GmbH
Case Postale 160
CH 1723 Marly 1
Switzerland

I'm pretty sure that Fujifilm already makes another type of instant film...?

But still, I'd like to see the classic Polaroid film come back...just so that don't have to buy a new kind of camera! Also, you can't pull off those neat Polaroid transfers with Fujifilm...so sad...

Signed- I've always wanted to try using polaroids at some point, and I'd rather like it if they still existed when I got around to it. :p

Just to keep up with the Jones'. Today I made a purchase of 10 single Spectra packs for $9.99 at TRIState camera. [link] While another site offered a dollar and some cents less, shipping was RIDICULOUS...so I went with Tri. Also got 4 twin packs of Spectra at Walmart last night. I think this will be my final purchase for instant film. :(

Is it ok to make a flyer of this (with your petition information, the petition link, and this article) to pass around my school?

I really appreciate that you did this, and I want to help support it. However, I don't have many people emails, so I think I'd do a better job with handing out hard copies.

Thank you so much for doing this. I love instant photography, and film photography. Just two or three days ago, I had a conversation with a friend about how traditional film and instant film services/products is become a dying art. I wish those words weren't true.

I really do.

Hey, that's technological progress for you. Just try finding the old-style records these days. By old-style I don't mean 33-&-1/3rd vinyl: The first records were not flat discs, but cylindrical & could only hold a few minutes of sound.

Do any of you have any idea how expensive it is to make instant film? If you wanted Polariod to keep making film, you should have bought more of it, much more.

signed too. haven't seen them in years, but as I was looking for a new camera and figuring out where to get supply for it, i read the news in the papers. i really don't think that it's not profitable anymore, it's like with films now there's a problem to get decent b/w prints here as they all print them on colour paper and i don't have the machinery at home anymore :(
