Impossible Reveals Polaroid Originals and OneStep2 Instant Camera; More Info at B&H Photo

Photography News: Impossible has breathed new life into the Polaroid brand with the surprise announcement of Polaroid Originals and the brand new OneStep2 Instant Film Camera

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 14, 2017) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of Polaroid Originals, a revival of the once ubiquitous instant film brand by the Impossible Project. This rebranding initiative represents years of work by the leaders of Impossible in bringing the original instant film format back from the dead, including decades-old cameras that require specialized film packs to operate. On top of this, Polaroid Originals is taking things a huge step forward with the release of the OneStep2 Instant Film Camera, a sequel to the original OneStep camera first released in 1977 that features the same simplicity but in a retro-inspired body with modern features.

Designed to work right out of the box, the OneStep2 is a truly simple design that is intuitive and easy-to-use with a large red shutter release button located on the front of the camera. It features a 106mm lens with a fixed focus that will capture everything from 2' to infinity, and the camera has a powerful flash to illuminate dark scenes. In terms of modern upgrades, the OneStep2 is equipped with a 1300mAh Li-ion battery that will keep the camera going for up to 60 days at a time. It also eliminates the need for batteries in the film packs and supports Impossible's recent i-Type film in addition to the standard 600-type options. Additionally, users can enjoy a self-timer function and pick up the camera in either white or graphite models.
