Polaroid Reverse-Engineered, Smartphone App Added to I-1 Camera from @Impossible_HQ
This camera looks absolutely gorgeous! I’d love to see a video of the transaction between camera and smartphone – Booooooom says the device uses Bluetooth, but there are no specifications listed on the product page. More info to come soon I hope.
The I-1 is the first new camera system in over 20 years for the original instant format. It’s an easy to use point and shoot instant camera, with a variety of unique and innovative features designed to take your photography further. Works with Impossible I-type and 600 type film. The I-1’s uniquely designed ring flash provides a diffused light that’s perfect for portraits. You can also connect your iPhone with the camera to experiment with creative tools like light painting, double exposure and more. This is the only instant camera that lets you take full photographic control of aperture and shutter speed, using the I-1 App’s manual mode. The I-1 is analog instant photography reinvented for the digital age.
