Default Fading Polaroid

I went on a Polaroid film buying binge today. I bought two twin packs of 600 for my modified SX-70, and I ordered some type 664 and 667 for my pack film cameras. I also picked up some 4x5 Polaroid film (type 53 and type 79) for the large format camera. Polaroid is apparently getting out of the film business this year, so get your Polaroid film while you can.

Bob

I thought someone was going to make this for awhile? Is that true? Or is it gone, gone?

Fuji makes pack film, which is bigger than the one step stuff. That will work in my ColorPack III and my two Polaroid Automatic Land cameras. That's about it though for instant film. 4x5 too. There are rumors that both Ilford and Fuji are interested in picking up the process patents. It would be a shame to see it go. I know it isn't as cool or high tech as digital, but there is something magical about seeing the image appear before your eyes.
