Do you think the Polaroid camera should be brought back into use?
Digital cameras have done away w/ the need for film, but there is still no on- the- spot "hard copy" like that of the Polaroid print.
Should the system be re-introduced to the photography market?
Not unless they could improve the quality. Yes, with Polaroid, you got the instant hard copy, but the quality was always much less than print film.
It's very unlikely as Polaroid went bankrupt due to the rise of digital camers, their failure to adapt and with how expensive the Polaroid cameras / film was to buy and use.
In fact, Polaroid is still alive and kicking and has several new instant print digital cameras. Fuji has similar models as well. You can go to their respective websites for more info. I was thinking of buying one myself, most likely Fuji, as it is cheaper and have better support, here in my country
I suppose that apps like Instagram and their use of square formatting and soft focus and vintage filters have replicated some of the visual effects that one would get from a Polaroid snapshot. It can be an effective way to get your Polaroid fix in an otherwise digital world.
