(UPDATED June 25) A detailed look at the Impossible I-1 camera

UPDATE: You can now watch a recording of the Impossible I-1 camera keynote on Vimeo (embedded below). I have also added many interesting details about the camera to this post, including detailed specifications that were just posted on the I-1 website.

Bloomberg Design Conference 2016: Oskar Smolokowski from Impossible on Vimeo.

Sections (roughly): 00:00 to 10:00 (about Impossible and why they made the camera), 10:40 (first look at the camera), 13:30 (flash), 15:00 (app), 17:00 (example photos taken with the I-1), 17:20 to end (live demo).

As you have probably already heard, Impossible unveiled their IP-1 I-1 camera at the Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference on April 11th. I promised you to write a post after the announcement to cover all the details that were unveiled. Here we are, 12 days later, and it’s not like I forgot to write or something. The problem is that there‘s was not much to report until now: Impossible annoyingly chose to postpone any info outside of some basic points of interest until May 10th, when the camera goes on sale. Luckily, the BW keynote video is now public, meaning I was able to add tons of info to the post. Enjoy!

As expected, the camera looks a lot like the ugly child of a Polaroid Land Camera 1000, an Impossible Instant Lab and a rotary phone:

Polaralps – Hiking with my 600 CL

Last weekend, my family and I travelled to Kitzbühel, a town in the Austrian Alps. As teased earlier on Twitter, I took my Polaroid 600 CL camera and Impossible black-and-white instant film with me.
Here’s a gallery with the surprisingly mystically beautiful results.
