Polaroid Originals Instant Lab
Pluck your memories from the cloud and bring them into the real world with the Polaroid Lab. It features a 3-lens system that acts like a desktop darkroom to turn your digital photos into instant Polaroid pictures. No printing or scanning required, just 100% real film chemistry. Plus, create and communicate in more ways than one with collage and augmented reality functions. Make for you, or make for someone else. But never lose a moment again.
Bring Your Still Images to Life
Go where a Polaroid camera has never gone before with this Instant Lab. You can create collages of up to 9 frames or bring your stills to life with the augmented reality tool using the Polaroid Originals app.
How Does It Work?
The Polaroid Lab uses a 3-lens system to project the screen image from your phone, exposing it onto Polaroid film. A unique chemical process then develops the image into a Polaroid picture. No printing, no scanning required, just an instant formula to create timeless images.
Collages Made Easy
Using the Polaroid Originals app, you can create seamless collages of up to 9 frames composed in any which way you like.
Digital to Analog and Back
The new augmented reality tool brings your memories to life. Using the Polaroid Originals app, you can layer still images with motion, all built into the chemistry of the photo.
Polaroid B&W Film for i-Type Cameras
Got a camera? Need film. Polaroid i-Type cameras have their own film: it's battery-free (unlike the standard film for vintage cameras), so it's easier on the wallet. Compatible with the OneStep + and the Now cameras, plus the Polaroid Lab. There are 8 instant photos in every pack.
The fridge is your movie's best friend. Temperature affects how Polaroid film works. To keep the film fit for recording, we recommend storing it in the refrigerator (not the freezer) and allowing it to reach room temperature (55.4-82.4 degree F / 55-82 degree F) before loading it into the camera.
Care for Your Camera
Clean rollers make photos clearer. Each Polaroid camera has a set of rollers inside the film door. If these rollers are dirty, the chemistry cannot so easily spread across the film frame. If they look dirty, give them a gentle cleaning with a soft, damp cloth.
Shoot with Light
Whether you're using natural sunlight or a studio setting, always shoot with the light behind you or at your side. If you look at the camera in the light, your photos can end up dark and dull. We also recommend always using the flash for excellent results, even on a sunny day.
Develop in the Dark
You need light to get the best picture, but you need darkness for its magic to work. When taking a photograph, thousands of chemical reactions occur within that small film frame. For best results, let your photo unfold face down in a warm area protected from light.
