An evening with my Impossible Instant Lab – Creating Instant Photos

Since my bedroom wall is supposed to be decorated with Polaroid instant photos, I spent an evening with my Impossible Instant Lab, developing a series of photos with an iPhone 5 and the Impossible iOS App. The result being a bunch of color and black & white photos soon to be displayed in my personal little art gallery. It comes at a price, though. 8 instant photos produced with Impossible Instant film sum up to 20 €, not considering the […]

A Vintage Car Junk Yard

While looking for decent vintage car dealers in northern Germany (believe me, there are only very few, if any), I came across a vintage car junk yard in Trappenkamp, 75 km north of Hamburg. In fact, it is the backyard of a local vintage car repair shop and I can attest that the cars for sale did not look much better the ones you are about to see… still, they made up for some nice pictures, all shot with an iPhone.

Instant – The story of Polaroid

I just recently read Christopher Bonanos’ Instant – The Story of Polaroid in a special limited edition published by Princeton Architectural Press, October 2012. On the back of the book it says: “Edwin Land was one of Steve Jobs’s first heroes, and this book shows why. He created a startup in a garage that grew into a company that stood at the intersection of creativity and technology. This is a fascinating saga, both inspiring and cautionary, about innovation and visionary leadership.” – […]

POLAROID SX-70 with Impossible film material

While testing the POLAROID SX-70 LAND CAMERA SONAR AutoFocus I used film material from The Impossible Project. They develop instant film material for Polaroid cameras in both color and black & white. The film material is made in a former Polaroid factory in Enschede (Netherlands) which they bought in 2008. They basically had to reinvent new instant film material because it was already a dead technology and original color dyes were no longer available. Since their first new instant film in 2010 they […]

Impossible Instant Lab – The App Let’s You Scan Instant Photos

When I tried The Impossible Instant Lab, I used the corresponding iOS app to choose the digital images I wanted to create instant photos from as well as the exposure time for the instant film material I used. The app let’s me create analog images with the instant lab, which basically is just a housing case for the instant film cartridge and the iPhone while exposing and is manually operated. But the app also works the other way around. It […]

Leica T System

Leica introduced a new camera system with interchangeable lenses and a new Leica T mount, the Leica T. It is supposed to be positioned between Leica’s X lineup and the M System and is priced at 1.500 €  for the body and about the same for each of the two lenses available at launch, a Leica Summicron-T 2,0/23mm and a Leica Vario-Elmar-T 3,5-5,6/18-56mm. Of course, many reviews have been published over the internet already, most of them praising the new […]
