Do you still count birthdays of dead people?

Still available at B&H.  $69 for the camera, $11 for a roll of 10 pictures.

I thought we only counted important ages that are divisible by 10 or 25.

That being said the Chernobyl Disaster occurred 27 years ago today.

Bah! I remember the Polaroids you had to rub stuff on to develop.

I have an original SX-70 somewhere around here.

Considering the developing chemicals were contained within the plastic of the picture, blowing on it would have no effect whatsoever. Similarly, shaking instant film would not help anything dry or develop faster, but might instead cause the chemicals to shift and collect in certain areas causing an ill-developed picture.

For best results, one should lay the picture flat on a table, undisturbed, until developing is complete. However, that doesn't make quite the same catchy song lyrics.

A bit of clarification:

The Polaroid instant camera that you didn't have to manually pull the pictures out and peel the cover film off turned 41 yesterday.

Pretty much came here to say that.  Died at 36 in 2008 when they stopped making film for it.

They still make those cameras and the film for them?!?!

BTW - Thanks to Outkast, Polaroid had to release a statement that you should NOT shake the film because it will ruin the development process.

The death of the Polaroid has totally changed the strip club experience.

Having to pay $10 for a printout from a digital photo printer with the feature just isn't the same as waiting
for the polaroid to develop.

Fuji still makes Polaroid like instant cameras and film. I think there are adapter kits for some Polaroid cameras to use the Fuji film,

Squidgy little whine.

The SX-70's main claim to fame was that it really put an end to those awkward moments at the film processor's counter and those annoying visits from law enforcement.

/not that I would know about such things
