I make my living photographing things and people that move. I do that with a Nikon camera in my hands. Currently my D810 and D5 bodies take 95% of those frames. I am very OCD when it comes to details of the scene, the lighting and how my subject fits within that rectangle.
However, for the past eight years, sitting quietly in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator tucked away in a thick plastic bag has resided 45 exposures of old (and expired), Polaroid Type55 PN black and white 4X5 film.

The Impossible I-1 is the first new 600-type instant film camera released in many years and is now shipping at B&H Photo.
The notable advances in the Impossible I-1 include iOS and WatchOS compatibility, an 82-109mm lens, a 5-zone AF system, a built-in ring flash and the inclusion of a rechargeable battery. Having its own battery means that the new I-Type film, which is made for this camera, doesn’t have to include its own battery pack. This seems to shave a couple bucks off the cost of a pack of film.
The I-1 instant camera retails for $299. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
