Polaroid brings back a classic

Polaroid is back with a new analog camera AND film. The One Step 2 Camera, available in two colors, is rechargeable via USB and has basic features like built-in flash and a self-timer. The $99 price tag makes it affordable, but you’ll want to be choosy about what you shoot since film comes out to $2 a print. Still, it’s good to see Polaroid back in the analog game after playing around in the hybrid space for so long. Pre-order here for delivery in mid-October.

70s snaps for days

It’s hard to believe (because I baseline everything on the 90s), but the end of the 70s was almost 40 years ago. I’ve always looked at photos from that decade with fondness because although it had its problems, I’m not sure we can top its film photography, goofy humor, and short shorts on EVERYONE. I’m not sure why I was searching for photos with the term 70s picnic, but I was happy it led to my discovery of My 70s Tumblr. Dig in and remember what it feels like to get lost in a Tumblr instead of social media. That will be 40 years old before we know it too.

Want more? Yeah you do.

Film photos that make us want to GTFOutside

Even amongst those who treasure it the most, film has become less accessible. There are precious, few places to develop it and in my experience, it can quickly become an expensive vice. But take one glance at the photos from Molly Steele and you just may be inspired to ditch your iPhone and splurge. Just try telling me these photos don’t make you want to GTFOutside.
