The Impossible Project I-1 is Their Own Instant Camera
The Impossible Project first reverse-engineered Polaroid’s instant film manufacturing process about eight years ago and today, they’ve introduced their very own instant-film camera, the I-1. It’s set to be the only new camera for the original Polaroid 600 instant film format. This beauty is as analog as it’ll get with just a shutter button, a dial for exposure compensation, and a very approximate focus selector. The built-in ring flash features an ambient light sensor and couples that with the focus distance to brighten up the subject. What’s pretty cool is that they’ve paired it with an app, allowing users to fine tune settings, hit the shutter remotely, and manage multiple-exposure shots. You can charge the I-1 via USB as well. Interested? Expect to drop $300 when it releases on May 10th.
