Polaroid Made an Instant Camera for the Instagram Era

The Bluetooth-enabled camera has a portrait mode and plenty of cool effects

Polaroid's newest instant camera was just released. And while it looks similar to its predecessor, the OneStep 2, the all-new OneStep+ is packed with useful and modern features that are sure to please film enthusiasts and social media users alike.

For instance, it's the first instant camera by Polaroid to have two lenses, the standard lens and a specialty portrait lens that allows you to shoot clear close-ups from only 12 inches away with a subtle background blur. It's also the first Polaroid instant camera to have built-in Bluetooth which syncs with an easy-to-use companion app.

The app gives you access to six creative tools. There's a manual mode which offers ultimate control, a double exposure as well as a noise trigger and a cool light painting feature that turns any light source into a paintbrush of sorts. There's a long-lasting (and USB-charged) battery and brighter flash which means you can you shoot anywhere, at any time. What's more, the camera has a pretty impressive self-timer, which allows you to set the camera down on a table or tripod and use your phone as a remote shutter to capture the perfect group shot or solo travel image. In short, it's an instant camera that offers you much more control and leaves you with great looking physical photos.
