For the uninitiated, the old Polaroid company went out of business and was eventually bought out by the parent company of the Impossible Project. It is now known as Polaroid Originals and has released two brand new Polaroid cameras: the OneStep 2 and the OneStep Plus. The OneStep 2 (the one listed here) is your basic point-and-shoot instant film camera. The Plus model also has full manual control over aperture, shutter speed, etc. via an app.

This particular camera retails for $99.99 on the Polaroid Originals website. One of the benefits of getting one of the new cameras (as opposed to buying an old Polaroid 600 camera from a garage sale or thrift shop) is that these new ones have built-in batteries, which can take film packs without batteries, resulting in a lower cost per shot.

This camera does not come with film, so you'll have to buy that separately. It's not cheap, but it is definitely a fun retro thing to do with family or friends. There is just something special about the physicality of an instant photo, not to mention the uniqueness (since you can't make copies of it unless you make a crappy scan of it).

The film is $23 for 8 shots. That's basically $3 a photo. I like retro fun but that is insane.

Yes, you look through the view finder. The picture you see is a close preview of what you get.

I have 3 polaroid type cameras I bought last year. A couple that do the 'fuji instax wide' which takes a large/wide polaroid. I really like them. I got em cause i thought my nephews won't have cool 'old looking' photos just super crisp iphone photos so thought cameras like this would be easy and fun to show them when they are older.

It's actually $16 for 8 shots (so more like $2 per photo), and you can regularly find it cheaper on Amazon. Still not cheap... but again, it's a niche thing. If you want to get the cost as low as possible, Fujifilm Instax Wide is probably your best bet. I think you can get those down to about $1 per photo.

The cost of the camera isn't the major factor, it's the photos. Especially for older Polaroids (like those found at Goodwill) the photos can be incredibly expensive

Unfortunately, the original Polaroid formula for the film was lost to time, and the Impossible formula is not as good. It's close, but they take longer to develop, are more sensitive to light, and the results can be a little inconsistent. I've only been using vintage Polaroid cameras with the new film, but that's been my experience.

I also gave the Fujimax Wide 300 camera. The Fuji instant film is superior, but Polaroid has that nostalgia factor.

At this price, you can pick up a Polaroid Snap or Kodak PrintOMatic. More compact and photos are a lot cheaper.

...and they fade out to white in less than 10 years.
