Impossible Instant Lab Turns Your Digital Images into Polaroid Photos

by


Nothing is truly impossible, not if you’ve got the Impossible Team on your side. They’re known for producing instant films for Polaroid cameras when Polaroid officially shut their factories down.

Now they’ve come up with another first that instant photography lovers will love: the Impossible Instant Lab.

Impossible Instant LabThe Instant Lab is literally the first and only one of its kind in the world. What it does is take the digital images on your iPhone and turn them into instant Polaroid prints. Who knew that was actually even possible?

Apparently, these guys did. All you have to do is fire up the Instant Lab app, put the phone in the cradle, and slide the shutter on the base of the device open. Wait a few minutes while it does its thing and presto! The instant physical copy of your digital photo will be ejected all retro and awesome-looking.

The Impossible Instant Lab is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $229(USD) will get you your very own Instant Lab unit. If you hurry, you can become one of the Early Birds who can get the Instant Lab for just $189.

    I am very disappointed. Please hear me out on this. When Polaroid stopped producing instant film in 2008, we feared that the beautiful film that we had come to love would be lost forever. When the Impossible Project was announced, it seemed like all hope was not lost. I WANT to believe in the Impossible Project, but the quality of their product still doesn’t make the cut after years of production and tweaking. I enjoy the unpredictable effects of instant film. Some of my best shots have benefited from these characteristics. But, the Impossible film, at $23 per pack of 8 shots, often does not develop right at all. For several years, I have ordered packs of film every six months to see if the film is up to standard. I have to report that it is not there yet.

    Now, the Impossible Project is working to Kickstart the Instant Lab. I wish they would just focus their efforts on improving the quality of their film and making a decent instant camera instead—at least that would be authentic to the art form, and not just another copy. It’s already easy for people to edit iPhone (or any other digital photos) into a Polaroid-like border. Why pay at least $189 to do the same thing?—to hold it in your hand? It feels fake to me. You can call me old fashioned, but I have to tell you that the experience of shooting instant film on an instant camera is VERY different, and you will find that out when you try it. I am not these comments to troll, I am being very sincere—the Impossible Project’s efforts and your money (their prices aren’t cheap) are better spent improving the film and creating a real instant camera that gives you the real instant experience.
