Polaroid is Back

Polaroid is Back

09_21_17_onestep2_main

Eighty years after Polaroid began and forty years after the release the original Polaroid OneStep, The Impossible Project’s mission to keep Polaroid film alive is finally accomplished with the reveal of Polaroid’s new subbrand Polaroid Originals, and a new OneStep 2 camera.

Did you get that? Polaroid is BACK thanks to the crazy passion of The Impossible Project team and their dedication to keeping Polaroid’s films alive for the past nine years. With blood, sweat, and some tears they pushed instant film forward and many of those team members now call Polaroid home.

What about this new camera?

While the look is reminiscent of the original OneStep, the new version has some modern upgrades like a higher quality lens, a rechargeable battery via USB, a more powerful flash and a self-timer function. OneStep is pre-ordering now in 2 colors for a cool $99.99, with delivery as early as October 16th.

 

What about the film?

With The Impossible Project being absorbed, we’ll all be buying film from Polaroid once again and at a better price. The new OneStep 2 is compatible with all the 600 series films we’ve grown to love like color and black/white, but also the newly developed i-Type (batteryless) film that runs only $15.99 per pack compared to the 600 film at $18.99.

What about the vintage cameras?

One of the coolest things about The Impossible Project was their vintage camera refurbishment program of the 600, Spectre and SX-70 camera models and that’s still here under the Polaroid name again and they have a wide range of old cameras available from $119.00-$609.99 and the films will be available for all them again very soon.

So in review, analog instant photography FROM POLAROID is back!!! and calls Polaroid Originals home. We’ve got some shopping to do.

Hawkesmill Leather Camera goods

Hawkesmill Leather Camera goods

We were just introduced to the England-based premium leather goods maker Hawkesmill a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love with their beautiful product shots of their camera bags and camera straps. I don’t think we’ve ever said “well that’s a beautiful picture of a camera strap” until now. The attention to detail they displayed throughout their site elevates the goods from the “like it”, to “love it”, to the “gotta have this gear” level. Seeing the well shot products made us want to touch and feel them for ourselves and a few weeks ago we got our clean white Royal post-delivered package adorned with just the right amount of hawk-themed custom packing tape and inside, our very own Westminster strap awaited it’s unwrapping inside a drawstring Hawkesmill-themed bag nestled softly in a piece of you guessed it hawk covered tissue paper. Thankfully, the the straps which range in price form £56.00-£115.00 are as lovely in person as the pictures portrayed with fine craftsmanship and attention to detail and that oh so delicious smell of freshly made leather goods. The strap was soft and feels good around the neck. We’re excited to see how the strap wears in over time and how the underside patinas over the years to come.

At their core, the Hawkesmill set out to simply create the best camera bags and leather camera straps money can buy. While the products give off the vibe of generations of mastery, they only concieved the brand in 2012 and spent their first TWO YEARS developing a camera bag that met their standards of style, durability and in the field functionality. TWO YEARS! They wanted to get it right, and I think they did. Take a tour of their site your self and put one of their products on your gear wishlist.

I’m Possible – Jeremy Cowart’s Story

I’m Possible – Jeremy Cowart’s Story

“I can’t do this. I’m not good enough. I’ll never be a success. These lies keep us from living, working and dreaming. It doesn’t have to be this way. In I’m Possible. I share my story.” –Jeremy Cowart

Join Jeremy as he shares in a really creative way his story of unlikely success, as a kid with bad grades from the suburbs, who despite the odds, was crazy enough to believe “impossible” means “I’m possible.” His parents made sure he believed one thing, and it’s made all the difference .. as he’s now a famous photographer, humanitarian, inventor, teacher … the list goes on.

If this one idea could do this for Jeremy, what could it do for you?
