Polaroid Originals, the leading authority in analog instant photography, entered Cebu in July 2018, marking its very first provincial hub in the country.
Last month, the Polaroid Interactive Photo Exhibit in Ayala Center Cebu allowed guests to experience how Polaroid Originals cameras, such as the One Step 2 i-Type camera and the Vintage 600, can capture life’s best moments in the coolest way possible. It’s like travelling back in time, as it triggers nostalgia of using analog vintage cameras, but with the perks of having modern features and a contemporary design; particularly for the One Step 2 i-Type.
Inspired by the original OneStep camera from the 1977, the OneStep 2 is an analog instant camera for the modern era as it blends classic design with contemporary style. Updated to create a simple easy-to-use instant camera which works as soon as you take it out of the box, it’s easy enough for a child to use.

Upon closer inspection, the OneStep 2 boasts heavy-weight features, with its built-in strobe flash, high-quality 2 feet to infinity lens, and self-timer function, users are assured of a completely unique photo each time. Plus, its long-lasting rechargeable battery means longer shooting time wherever and whenever in the world. To be precise, the camera has a 60-day battery life.
And the best part? The OneStep 2 enables users to fully immerse in the glory days of analog photography as it runs on all the styles of Polaroid Originals’ i-Type Film and 600 Film. Whether it’s colored, black and white, or soaked in rainbow hued frames, there’s a whole world of possibilities simply waiting to be developed.

Eighty years since Edwin Land changed the way we keep memories with his breakthrough invention, Polaroid is back to capture life’s best moments in the coolest way possible. Introducing Polaroid Originals, a new category of products dedicated to analog instant photography in its original, iconic format.
Launched on September 13, 2017 – the 80th anniversary of Polaroid’s foundation – Polaroid Originals marks the next step in a journey started by The Impossible Project who kept the dream alive since 2008. As the clamor for nostalgia peaks, it didn’t take long for the rest of the world to catch up as Polaroid stakes its original claim as the leading authority in instant photography.
Recently, Polaroid Originals collaborated with self-taught photographer The London Vagabond to capture the backstage magic of punk royalty Vivienne Westwood’s AW17/18 collection. As one of the most historic artifacts of the 80s, Polaroid Originals also made an on-screen appearance in one of the episodes of the much-anticipated season 2 of sci-fi web series Stranger Things – laying proof of the world’s enduring fascination with Polaroid.
Fast forward to this day, sentimental fiends and tastemakers alike can rejoice as Polaroid Originals rolls out with refurbished vintage cameras that are nostalgic as they are good as new.
