Dump the digital camera and dig out that dusty Polaroid.

It includes a new monochromatic film, designed to work with the Polaroid SX-70 and 600 cameras, available at the company’s recently opened store at 425 Broadway in New York, which comes after shops in Vienna and Berlin.

 

The developments could generate a comeback of analog pictures this summer. The Impossible Project recently launched a version of the classic Polaroid 600 camera designed by Paul Giambarba, the architect of Polaroid’s corporate image in 1958. Sold in a limited edition kit with a pack of matching film, it instantly sold out.
