Polaroid is dropping the technology it pioneered long before digital photography rendered instant film obsolete to all but a few nostalgia buffs.

The firm is closing factories in Massachusetts, Mexico and the Netherlands and cutting 450 jobs as the brand synonymous with instant images focuses on ventures such as a portable printers for images from mobile phones and digital cameras, televisions and DVD players.

Edwin H. Land was a genius, there's no doubt about that.

I think there is a small but defined market for the stuff in high end photography where people still use film. It's common to check a setup with a Polaroid shot before shooting the money shot...at least it was not too long ago.
