Polaroid Type 55 is back! (update: NOT)

The Impossible Project is releasing its version of the beloved Polaroid Type 55 film.

Thanks to Zane Davis for pointing out that Polaroid Type 55 is not in fact “back” as I hastily and incorrectly posted. The Impossible Project has created new instant films, but the Type 55 that they’re selling–for $223.00–is the original Polaroid film leftover from when it was still available. Keep those comments coming in! Zane, the head of the fact-checking department at Picturedujour has “resigned” to “spend more time with his family.”
