Jerry Conlogue is worried about his mummy. Or make that pictures he takes of mummies. The Connecticut reseacher uses Polaroid film to take X-ray photos of ancient mummies deep in the Peruvian jungle. Now, he and other Polaroid devotees are wondering what they'll do when their supply of the instant film runs out. Polaroid announced last week it's closing factories that make the film. The Boston-area company says it's seeking a partner to acquire licensing rights to keep the film in production. Even in this age of digital photography, there are still plenty of people using Polaroids for technical or artistic reasons. They're stocking up on their favorite film while they still can get it.
