We know a bunch of you were upset to hear the news that Polaroid was going to stop developing their iconic instant film. We share your pain. The good news is that Polaroid has not closed up shop for good, at least not yet. The R&D-heads at Polaroid are working on a new camera that will feature an integrated Bluetooth printer.
Of the few details that the blogosphere has gotten is that the new camera will be a 'professional and business' model with an integrated printer capable of printing photos up to 4" x 3" in size, the same size as the famous polaroid snaps themselves. This will definitely feel like an old friend.
Polaroid is also asking Amateur Photographer readers to help design the camera. A survey on the site allows readers to specify attributes like pixel count, print quality and the battery's print capacity, with prizes for the best suggestions.
The new cameras are due out in 2009.
