It’s a similar camera, another update on the classic Polaroid instant camera of the past we all know and love and like that camera, uses the company’s new i-Type film. So what’s new? Well, it’s all about your smartphone.

The OneStep+ can be paired with a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, which means you get access a many more features via the Polaroid Original app.

That allows you to take images remotely via your phone, use a painting feature to enhance your photos, choose different modes (such as double exposure for example) and adjust the likes of shutter time, aperture and exposure. The app also gives you details of battery life and how much film you have left.

Some of which might take away some of the fun of just taking a photo. But you don’t have to use any of it. It’s all just there if you want it or need it and with that retro look, it can happily pass for a retro / vintage camera when you do bypass those extras, not least because that design is based on the original 1977 OneStep camera

Want one? You can pre-order the Polaroid OneStep+ i-Type camera now for £149.99.
