For any fan of the original instant camera, the news that Polaroid is relaunching the classic and much-loved OneStep camera, from 1977 is very exciting. The OneStep 2 i-Type retains the charm of the original model, but with updated features that bring it firmly into the 21st century.

Polaroid cameras have become a classic part of our culture and an easy way to document our lives. They made instant photography easy and affordable for a whole generation and even now earlier models are highly coveted. Even now in our digital world, there is just something about a Polaroid that has enduring appeal. It’s our love of instant film that has kept this format from disappearing altogether and now it’s making the ultimate comeback.

Described as ‘an analog instant camera for the modern era’, the OneStep 2 i-Type features a high-quality 2ft to infinity lens and built-in strobe flash designed to produce great photos. Whilst the rechargeable battery lasts 60 days to ensure it’s ready to capture those spontaneous moments.

When it comes to film options, you have plenty of choice in both colour and black & white formats, for total freedom of expression.

The Polaroid OneStep 2 i-Type camera is priced at £109.99 and currently available for pre-order. It is expected to ship on November 15th – perfectly timed for the Christmas wish list!
