The Impossible made Possible? Impossible Project now redirects to new Polaroid Originals site, and the Polaroid One Step 2

When news broke sometime ago that the majority shareholder of Impossible Project was also now the majority shareholder of Polaroid, rumors exploded. Our prediction? That the Impossible was indeed possible, Impossible Project was Polaroid. Not the pale version of the brand we’d come to know in recent years, but a rebirth of the instant film legend. 

Now it seems that this is a reality. Impossibles site (http://impossible-project.com) now forward directly to (https://us.polaroidoriginals.com) and the announcement teased by Polaroids site and social accounts turned out to be just what we hoped for, a brand new camera, the Instant One Step 2.

The Polaroid One Step 2 works with all types of 600 and I-type films. Features include an upgraded flash and lens as well a battery life of 60 hours, and the I-type film doesn’t require batteries, whereas the 600 film has the battery pack in the film cart.

OneStep 2 i-Type Camera

The OneStep 2 is an analog instant camera for the modern era, blending classic design with contemporary style. It’s inspired by Polaroid’s original OneStep, but updated to create a simple, easy-to-use instant camera that works straight out of the box. It’s got a high quality lens and a powerful flash to give you great photos every time, and its long-lasting rechargeable battery means you’ll always be ready to shoot, whether you’re on a brief excursion or a journey round the world.
