[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid's future

----- Original Message -----
From: "Hemingway, David J" <HEMINGD@polaroid.com>

I'll never be a CEO. But, I can't for the life of me understand why
Polaroid would shrink back to its core instant film products as I have
read. It seems to me that instant film is on the way out, since digital
cameras are getting better at a increasing rate.

In the UK they have just launched a pinhole camera kit and you can hardly
get more backward looking than that.
No doubt, if they continue in business, we will see the introduction of a
wet plate kit and then something really, really special like a coated copper
plate that gives just one copy with the image back to front.

Speaking for myself I can hardly wait.

PS: glad to hear they are considering selling off their digital scanner
division, there's no future in that kind of technology by gad, no indeed.
