Polaroid Now Review

 

Fun, retro design ; Large, square instant photos ; Rechargeable battery ; Color and black-and-white film available

Inconsistent autofocus and exposure ; Expensive, finicky film ; No selfie mirror or tripod socket ; Experimental emulsions no longer in production

The Polaroid Now is an instant camera with an iconic name and a low cost of entry, but the hardware itself is anything but legendary.

Review: Polaroid Now

 

In 2008, Polaroid shut down its instant film production, ending an era of photographic fun. But that era didn't want to end, and the appropriately named Impossible Project revived first Polaroid film and then Polaroid cameras. Whether it's nostalgia...

Classic design with fun colors. Comfortable to carry around. Autofocus lens handles greater variety of shooting situations. Improved flash eliminates washed out images. Just plain fun to use.

Expensive film Inconsistent outdoors OneStep+ has more features

When it comes to instant cameras, the Polaroid Now is an instant classic. It delivers superior image quality to the trusty OneStep2, and does away with the extraneous controls for a straight-to-the-point-and-shoot experience. The OneStep+ is packed...

Polaroid Now review

 

The Polaroid Now is an instant camera that brings new treats, including autofocus. But is it an instant hit?

Shoots classic, full-size polaroid film Autofocus gives consistent results Long battery life and USB recharging

Bulky shape not easy to carry around Inconsistent exposures and inaccurate viewfinder Cost of film quickly adds up

A range of improvements make Polaroid's updated instant camera even easier to use, and take a lot of the guesswork out of shooting on instant film, even if exposures can still be inconsistent. The iconic shape makes the Now less portable than some...

The Polaroid Now might spark nostalgia, but fiddly controls and inconsistent results mean there are better instant camera options.
