Not-so-instant any more

The New York Times posts that Polaroid is abandoning instant photography. They’re shutting down the factories, and will only have enough stock to last into 2009. Still, I’ll quickly miss the Type 55 P/N film that I’ve grown to love. Not having to muck with developing sheet film; having an ISO 25 or 50 large format B&W neg film; and being able to solarize my negs right out of the camera… This will indeed suck mightily.
