Rate & Review

The Impossible Project Impossible Instant Lab creates beautiful instant photos from your iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S or iPod Touch 4th/5th generation. While we recommend impossible film for Polaroid SX-70-type cameras (ASA 160), the Instant Lab can be used with any Impossible film both color, and black and white. It works with new, battery-less film packs for Impossible cameras (coming soon), as well as classic film cartridges with built-in batteries. Exposure times for various Impossible film types can be easily set within the Impossible Project App, but feel free to play with different settings on various film types. We can't wait to see your results!

Note: iPhone NOT INCLUDED.

Unlike a photo printer, the Instant Lab doesn't spray ink onto paper. In fact it is bridging the gap between the worlds of digital and analog: Being a real camera, it uses a special four element coated glass lens to take a photo from your iPhone's display and lets it develop inside the layers of the integral film. It's a purely photochemical process that results in a unique analog photo that is completely different from the output of a printer. Get an Instant Lab now and try it for yourself you'll be amazed.

At the heart of the Instant Lab is the Impossible Film Processing Unit (FPU) a new high-precision platform that processes and develops Impossible instant film and guarantees great photographic results. The Impossible Instant Lab was made possible with the help of over 2700 backers on Kickstarter and Campfire who supported this idea with more than $600,000, and more importantly, with their passion for analog instant photography. And finally, after many months of development you can experience it as well.

The Instant Lab is designed to be operated as easy as possible. No unnecessary dials, buttons, controls. Simply place your phone on the cradle, pull the shutter slide out, then back in and press the eject button that's it. The Impossible Project app guides you through the whole process and helps you getting the best results.

Many details guarantee a smooth experience the app takes care of perfect exposure times, the cradle holds your iPhone or iPod touch perfectly, and the built-in frog tongue protects your photo from unwanted light during development. It also comes with a USB power-chord to charge the Instant Lab's battery wherever you are. Falling in love with instant photography has never been easier.
