Impossible I-1 Instant Camera Review

 

We take a look at the Impossible I-1 instant camera with manual mode and remote trigger and self timer.

The Impossible Project launched in 2008 with the aim of reviving the defunct Polaroid format, which had not long before announced it would stop creating its classic instant film. Starting with creating film for existing Polaroid cameras, the Impossible...

The Impossible I-1 camera is a great achievement in terms of bringing back a classic style of camera, all the while giving it a little bit of a modern twist. Adding bluetooth connectivity is a great innovation that gives you good control and adds some...
