Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture!

Did you know Polaroid Cameras was discontinued in 2007? Yup! I couldn't believe it. After I received this news I immediately became obsessed with finding a camera and film. During my search I found a FREE down loadable program that won't replace the camera but is a huge runner up.

It's on the website Poladroid. You can convert your digital photos to look like a Polaroid picture (as seen with Mochi's picture above). You can even "shake" the photo with your mouse just like you would with a Polaroid. I love it! Yes, and it's FREE although, donations are gladly accepted! I hear iPhone also has an application for this.

However I still wanted the real thing. I end up finding one on craigslist for 15 buckaroos. Now, I'm waiting with my fingers crossed for the film to arrive and hoping to see if the camera functions properly. Did you know the batteries for a Polaroid camera are located in the film pack? (Hence the crossing of the fingers).

Too bad I didn't know you wanted one sooner. I just threw out several when we cleaned up my Dad's house.
