I love the idea of the Impossible I-1 the new instant camera and I must admit I would like to own one! The Impossible project have reinvented instant film and now they have reinvented the instant camera. You can control the camera by a mobile app as well and it has a rechargeable battery so the film packs don’t need to have one so it makes the film a little cheaper. It also means there are less battery packs going straight into the bin. For more information you can visit the impossible project website HERE and of course it looks cool to! I can beg, steal or borrow one I will review the camera at a later date. I have some impossible images HERE
