So initially I didn’t have any immediate plans to get the new camera from Polaroid Originals assuming that it would have been a few hundred and probably out of stock for a while. I dropped by Salt Kakaako to check out Hungry Ear Records for some new music. On the way out I did my typical stop in at Treehouse to say hi, low and behold the new Polaroid was on display. To make it even more tempting, the price wasn’t excessive like I had expected it to be. In total this will still end up costing a pretty penny, but this new camera uses cheaper packs of film thanks to the battery being removed. This price drop for i-type film is even more noticeable when you count the extra few dollars discounted once Polaroid Originals became official and not just Impossible film.
The camera will have a difficult time indoors without the use of flash but I still felt the need to test how it would be. I also have to remember to make sure I’m a few feet back for the focus to be accurate. I’ll be taking it out more when I do some outdoor shoots and if I can find enough light indoors too. I’m generally not very comfortable with direct flash but maybe this is something I’ll have to get used to for using this camera.
