A little bit of history about the Polaroid Instant Camera:
Polaroid Camera History starts back in 1937 when Edwin H. Land founded the Polaroid Corporation. On April 21, 1948, the 1st Polaroid camera was sold in the US. The company's original dominant market was polarized sunglasses.
By 1956, Polaroid had produced one million cameras. In 1976, Polaroid sues Kodak for copyright infringment over their instant cameras and goes on to eventually win the case.
In 1993, ninety-five Captiva Cameras are introduced by Polaroid.
I-Zone cameras are introduced in 1999.
Polaroid Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on October 11, 2001. A subsidiary of Bank One buys most of the assets.
