One of the most retro elements that exist (outside the NES) is back: Polaroid instant photography. But this return is not due to Polaroid itself, but to ‘The Impossible Project’, a grandiose initiative that kicked off in 2008 with the goal of bringing back all the retro glory of the Polaroid photos. Today they have finally succeeded.
OneStep 2 the Old Polaroid Snapshot
This new OneStep 2 also incorporates a battery of 1100 mAh that according to the company will offer up to 60 days of autonomy and which can be recharged via USB. It weighs 460 grams, has a 0.6m lens with a focal range of 106mm and a field of view of 40 degrees.
It will be compatible with special film ‘i-Type’ and ‘Polaroid 600 film’. The i-Type film has been created specifically for this camera and is optimized for longer life and better colors. This film includes eight shots and will not be compatible with old Polaroid cameras, this mainly because it does not include the battery that these retro cameras need.
