Both have their drawbacks: You need an iPhone (at the moment) to use Instagram. And Polaroid film is expensive and difficult to find.

But if you had your choice, which one would you pick?

    Polaroid! I freaked out when they discontinued it and bought ton online. It’s still in my fridge. I love instagram for it’s ease if use, sharing and digital qualities but I’m old school at heart.

    Very hard choice… hhmmm.. with a polarioid you actually get to have a real life image – I hate the idea of all our future photos only existing in the digital world.. xxxx

  3. Natasha says:

    My love of holding a physical memory compels me to choose Polaroids.

    Polaroid! (Though I would be happy to have an iPhone) I cannot believe my father tossed out the Polaroid w/out asking me if I wanted it. Fume. xoxo

    I don’t have an iphone but I sure do love the look of these instagrams….

    I would love to have a polaroid.. but truthfully it would probably not be used as often, mostly because of the cost. So yes I do love my instagram! but now that you can print them I am slowly making a collection which I will turn into a book or something.

  7. i try to take pictures with my iphone, but i’m just not that into. i usually carry a camera with me wherever i go. 🙂

    I love my Polaroids and am so happy that the Impossible Project is around, but Instagram is so convenient and fun. I think they definitely both have their place and value.

    Polaroids! But in the absence of either the right camera or film I use poladroid to get the same effect from normal photos. Nothing but nothing has remained un-poladroided!

  10. Samantha says:

    i don’t have either- but i would say polaroids!


  11. SisterBatik says:

    I don’t have either – but “real” film everytime!

    I love the ease of instagram but you cant beat the real thing! I just wish that polaroids were cheaper and easier to come across!!

  13. Polaroid! I like Shake It Photo on the iPhone better than Instagram. Plus I think people overuse the filters like crazy and it’s ruining the whole thing anyway.

  14. anna says:

    I’m so broke that I can’t afford the price of film but luckily the instagram app is quite easy to use. I use it all the time.

  15. Jack says:

    I♥Polaroids. I try treat myself to film every once in a while. I know it’s expensive but I can’t help myself 🙂
