as a film photographer i am always amazed by imaging technology. from the earliest concept of camera by ibn haytham, to the modern camera device made by many european scholars in the 18-19th century.

Or… you can use a smartphone and take a ultra HD picture in second.

How is the developer released/put in contact with the film?

Still a very cool, fun, and relavent thing. I’m using HP’s Zink. My twin nieces have asked for a Polaroid camera for their birthday. They love the shape of the print, and they use it a lot in scrapbooking, journaling, and homemade cards.

Am I the only one wondering who is the person in the photo at 0:40? I guess someone from production, tho.

The film is amazing, but what's even more amazing is the machinery engineered to make it, and the geniuses who originally invented it all! Not to mention the fact that this machinery is still in operation today…

Nice, but how the process happens after taking an image ?

Shane Manzara May 11, 2022 - 8:38 PM

I love shooting instant film. Thank you Impossible project, now Polaroid, for recreating this.
I hope someone can recreate Fujifilm FP-100B and FP-100B. I love the peel apart instant film!

As a teenager, I once made a pin hole camera using a shoe box and a 4×6 sheet of b&w emulsion. Exposure time was about 15 minutes, and while it was cool, it satisfied my curiosity. The process for making "instant" photographs has always amazed me, though.

Wow.. so this is how it's made

Arisu Sanchez May 11, 2022 - 9:50 PM

In my headcanon that was a narrator face reveal.

Krusty Bunion May 12, 2022 - 1:52 AM

I would fall asleep if I had to work in that factory in the dark

I still have an old Kodak Instamatic Camera, and it looks new and works perfectly. The film is a little expensive though.

TopGear34 May 12, 2022 - 4:15 AM

How It's Made is the best show on Science Channel :D

Craig Jensen May 12, 2022 - 5:19 AM

0:42 So THAT'S what the narrator guy looks like!! Absolutely nothing like I pictured.

Destin from Smarter Every Day saw this and said "Hold my beer."

It was a great day as an 80s kid when Mom let you put a pack of Polaroid film on the checkout counter at the store

Rob P. May 12, 2022 - 7:10 AM

Too complicated to understand –

Brian M May 12, 2022 - 7:18 AM

I wonder how much film had to be ruined by having the lights on for all this??

Looking back in time makes one appreciate the smartphones even more. What a marvelous technology it is.

Dave Baker May 12, 2022 - 10:27 AM

I have a Poloroid land camera and have kept it in my car for photographic evidence in case of accident, however it is very difficult to get film anymore and when it is available, the price is beyond outrageous
