The original instant camera. Reinvented.

The first new camera system for the original Polaroid® photo format in over a decade, the I-1 brings a design icon to a new generation.

Unlock the potential of instant photography with the I-1 app

Manual mode

With the ability to adjust aperture, shutter speed, flash and focus distance, Manual Mode lets you take full control of every exposure.

Remote trigger & self timer

Shoot from in front of the lens with remote trigger, or use the self-timer to put yourself in the frame.

Creative Techniques

With the I-1 app, digital innovation empowers the analog world. Now you can create double-exposures, light and color paintings, or even use noise triggers to capture split-second moments.

The I-1 App

The I-1 app is available for Apple devices running iOS 8.0 & up, and Android devices running version 4.3 & up.

Make great portraits with the ring flash

Capture every detail in any environment: the I-1’s advanced ring flash works with the I-1 app’s light sensor feature, providing the perfect flash for portrait shots.

I-Type Film

The I-1 works with any 600 type film, but our I-type film is optimized for I-type cameras and doesn’t contain batteries, making it cheaper and more energy efficient.

How it worksS

Instant photography is a complex chemical process that brings an image to life in the palm of your hand. An image is created when light enters the camera and hits the film, which is coated in developer paste as it exits the camera. The result is a unique image of a single moment.
