Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 brings back a genuine instant experienceIf you like the look and feel of Polaroid prints, this new point-and-shoot instant film camera is the real deal.
[SOUND] No one can argue the convenience of shooting pictures with your phone. But, sometimes it's just nice to shoot, and have an actual print. That experience is something POLAROID ORIGINALS is reproducing with it's new ONE STEP 2. A simple analog instant film camera [MUSIC] Load the film in front of the drop down door, turn it on, and you're ready to shoot. There's a flash, the self timer, and a switch for slightly adjusting exposure, but really that's it. Lights on top let you know how many shots remain and a built-in battery last for up to 60 days and charges by micro USB. Though it does take old Polaroid film, you can also use Impossible's Color in black and white I-Type and 600-Type film, which has eight shots to a pack and sells for 15.99 each or a little less if you buy three at a time. That's pricey, but at least the camera itself isn't at $99.00 or ��110.00 at It's in the UK. [MUSIC] Compared to the prints from Fujifilm's instax mini and square cameras. The onestep 2 springs are larger with the same sort of dreamy results the original Polaroids were known for [MUSIC] They can take up to 15 Minutes to fully develop too, so, the whole experience is very different from the rapid-fire shoot and share life you're probably used to. But again, there is nothing like being able to shoot and share a print immodestly with the people you're with And that purity of the format is captured with the with the OneStep 2. [MUSIC]
