Polaroid OneStep 2 Unboxing

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.

 

 

Fuji X-Pro 1 Unboxing

I’ve had the Fuji X100S for a while and started considering an upgrade to an X-Series camera with interchangeable lenses.  Last week, the camera gods sent me a sign on what i should do.  B and H posted a sale for the X-Pro 1 along with the Fujinon 35mm f1.4 and Fujinon 27mm F2.8 lenses.  I felt that this deal was too good to pass up and made haste with emptying my wallet. more “Fuji X-Pro 1 Unboxing”
