iZone Countdown

The Polaroid iZone camera is one of my favorite toy cameras. The photo it takes is only about 2 inches wide and an inch tall. While I am sure it was intended for teens taking spontaneous pictures of friends and such, what it is perfect for is landscapes and broad subjects. The effect can be hazy and magical. They stopped making iZone film well before announcing that they would stop making Polaroid Instant Film altogether. This morning when Pumpkinrot and I went out to shoot some photos of Johnny Appleseed I took the iZone along and had eight shots left...and by left I mean for EVER. Now I have six. Using two was well worth it. I absolutely love the results.

It's sad that they aren't making that film anymore, those are some great pictures. If I ever come across any I'll let you know.

I guess you probably knew there was some on ebay, but it is pretty expensive. (If that is the same kind you use, that is.)

Yep, I know it's there. The problem is that more than likely it's no good. The shelf life of iZone film is pretty short. I bought a whole bunch of expired iZone film before the prices shot up and it was all completely useless. But thanks for looking out for me! :)
