Polaroid, synonymous with instant photography, is back with a groundbreaking release: their brand-new, all-manual instant film camera, the Polaroid I-2. This release marks the first of its kind in nearly 50 years, seamlessly intertwining the nostalgic essence of analog with the precision of contemporary engineering. Armed with comprehensive manual controls, photographers are offered an expansive canvas, allowing for a more intricate connection with the world of instant film. This camera is about taking risks, pushing boundaries, and fine-tuning your art. With full manual control, you can execute your vision as you see fit, exploring instant film's true possibilities. I've had the utmost privilege to test this bad boy back in my hometown with new friends, putting all the settings to the test to really unleash my creativity in a comfortable space. Let's dive into what this camera is about and my honest thoughts on whether it's worth the hefty price tag.
- 6 different shoot modes in the camera.
- All-new built-in manual mode.
- It has the sharpest lens EVER.
- Continuous focus 3 lens system.
- An F/8 gives us the most depth of field in a Polaroid camera.
- Pricey with a $599 tag.
- It still holds that instant film charm (slightly unpredictable).
