For those of you who are curious what kind of images Impossible Project I-1 camera creates, this post is for you.
I got this camera during my trip to Japan. I wasn’t able to find I-1 films over there, so I used the Polaroid 600 Type films instead.
It’s not the easiest camera to bring to photowalks . . . It’s size and unique shape tend to draw people’s attention . . . and the fact that the flash is quite powerful turn people’s heads. But, the images it creates are completely stunning!
Also, since the film cartridge only holds 8 instant films . . . and changing the cartridge while standing or walking is not an easy feat . . . I really had to think before I shoot. Even so, I had to conspicuously swap cartridges (on sidewalks) a couple of times that day. But, it was worth the effort.
And, while I was stranded on an airport while I was waiting for my connecting flight, I couldn’t resist capturing a few images as well.
I’m looking forward to scan these images using a high-resolution scanner. But, since I’m still out of town, these images I “scanned” using Impossible Project iPhone App should suffice.
That week, I brought both my Impossible I-1 and Lomo’Instant Wide cameras pretty much everywhere. And, whenever possible, I used both cameras to capture the same scenes or objects . . . that way, I can find out and compare the kind of images both cameras and films can create. In my next post, I will share some of the images I captured using Lomo’Instant Wide camera. No worries, they won’t look exactly like the ones you see in this post.
Despite the slight defect on my viewfinder (the hinge keeps on popping off the piece, and I have to gaffer-tape it to my camera for now while I’m waiting for the replacement viewfinder I purchased to arrive), I really love the camera and the images it creates.
