Poladroid Crazy

I am so in love with the Polaroid. I have been wanting to buy a Polaroid camera ever since I had to babysit one during the Tony’s Pizza days. Back then it costs RM10 per cartridge for 10 shots. Recently, the price went up to RM50 per cartridge, and now that Polaroid has announced that it will no longer be making the film, it’ll soon be a collector’s item.

Khoo suggested that I just buy a digital printer and print my regular digital pictures using the polaroid frame mode but somehow that just doesn’t give the same anticipation and excitement that you feel as you shake the Polaroid and wait for it to develop.

There are a few online software that allows you to polaroid your pictures like Instantizer and Photo Notes which I have been using quite frequently. But the best, by far, is the Poladroid project, which you have to download and localize into your machine. The colour correction and resizing of the photo closely resemble an actual Polaroid, the frame even has the surface texture like the  real thing. The best thing is, the photo develops slowly; you do get a little antsy waiting for it to finish developing but the result, y’all, is fantastic.

One of my regrets is that I didn’t take pictures of the many places that I have been to. One of the reasons is that I was always travelling alone and had some work to take care of so taking photographs is the last thing that I had on my mind (often, never). Anyway, I tested out the Poladroid and here are some of the pics. Poladroid for Windows is still in its beta stage, still, it rawks. Below the gallery, Hey Ya by Outkast, for the having line ‘shake it like a polaroid picture’ in the lyrics.
