Just read something interesting about how old Polaroid SX-70 cameras are in high demand. The folks in Europe that are making the film again, mainly for artistic type photographers, restore the cameras and apparently sell them as fast as they can get them to market. And get this, they are getting the equivalent of 540 euros for the things! Thought I would mention this if you happen to have one laying around the garage, basement or attic.
I also read some time ago that polaroid backs for view cameras are in demand as well. Some companies now package sheet film in to go in them so you don't have to load the film in the dark. Again I suspect most view cameras are in the hands of artistic types or pros these days?

I've always liked the Polaroid cameras, would buy one if film was readily availabe and not too costly.
The Impossible Project got the licenses to the chemistry and procedures for making instant film and has started cranking it out in limited quantities. Hard to justify the cost though although I guess they have a substantial artist following. An artist in New York used to do some beautiful pieces with super enlarged and manipulated Polaroid prints. She would have no trouble paying for the film given what she was getting for her work.
