polaroid onestep 2 review : The original Polaroid OneStep was one of the biggest selling cameras of the 1970 s and the new camera replicates the retro shooting experience brilliantly. However, in the digital era it’s more of an enjoyable curiosity than anything else.
Polaroid was the poster-boy for instant cameras back in the ‘70s, but times were so tough in 2008 that the company stopped producing instant film altogether. Luckily, film aficionados The Impossible Project stepped in to snap up Polaroid’s old equipment – and began pumping out new film almost as quickly as arty photography fans could buy the stuff.
Lots of film and several new cameras like the Impossible I-1 later, and the fledgling company had enough cash to snap up official rights to the Polaroid brand. Now called Polaroid Originals, the OneStep 2 is the first “real” Polaroid camera we’ve seen in what feels like decades.

The design of the Polaroid OneStep 2 is a perfect homage to the original with a similar black and white design and big, red shutter button.
It’s a bit sleeker with an addition of a flash and self timer for a nice modern update. (It also comes in a dark gray and black color scheme, but, for me, that loses a bit of the nostalgia.)
As a big fan of the original, I love their updated take. It’s modern enough for newcomers to love, and it has plenty of nostalgia to keep old film heads like me happy.
