the world of film photography expands again…
While the original Polaroid is gone, a new one has been born.
The Impossible Project has now finished turning itself into a new Polaroid with the introduction of a modern take on a Polaroid instant camera… The OneStep 2.
OneStep 2 i-Type Camera
The OneStep 2 is an analog instant camera for the modern era, blending classic design with contemporary style. It’s inspired by Polaroid’s original OneStep, but updated to create a simple, easy-to-use instant camera that works straight out of the box. It’s got a high quality lens and a powerful flash to give you great photos every time, and its long-lasting rechargeable battery means you’ll always be ready to shoot, whether you’re on a brief excursion or a journey round the world.
This item is available for pre-order only. The estimated release date is October 16, 2017.Source: https://us.polaroidoriginals.com/products/onestep2-polaroid-camera?variant=971188666394
The OneStep 2 is available in two colors, graphite and white, for $99.99
There are currently only three film types listed for sale that are specifically for the i-Type camera. You have a choice between a color film, black and white, and a multi pack that features two packs of colored film and one of black and white.
Color Film for i-Type — Comes in an 8 shot pack for $15.99 ($2 per shot)
Black and White Film for i-Type — Comes in an 8 shot pack for $15.99 ($2 per shot)
Multi Pack — Two packs of Color Film, 8 shots each, One pack of Black and White with 8 shots for $45 which saves you about $3 over purchasing each individually.
However, on the OneStep 2’s product listing page claims that the camera is compatible with all 600 type films as well…
So you have options, expensive options, for your new film camera.
Ultimately the OneShot 2 is a pretty straightforward camera and there isn’t exactly much to talk about.
While I’m not exactly intrigued… people do love the look and feel of film don’t they…
