At TARcon6 last February, my Polaroid was dropped (one drunken guy, long story) but the good thing that came out of that was that I decided that if I did go to another event where I'm going to need a Polariod, I would buy one then. Luckily, a few months later, I did go to TARcon7 - and I passed by B&H Photo to buy me this bad boy! It so much cooler than my last wimpy green one so I'm very satisfied. The only downside is that the film can be very very expensive. So I have to decide when "it's most advantageous to go for it".
