IMPOSSIBLE ANNOUNCES BREAKTHROUGH IN ANALOG INSTANT CAMERA DEVELOPMENT
NEW MODULAR PLATFORM IS BASIS FOR VARIOUS NEW ANALOG INSTANT DEVICES
FIRST CONCEPTS INTRODUCED IN KICKSTARTER CAMPAGIN AND AT PHOTOKINA 2012

New York, USA, 10 September 2012. – After 18 months of intense research and development, Impossible today introduces a groundbreaking module for analog instant photography: A high precision platform named “Impossible FPU” (Film Processing Unit), that processes and develops Impossible instant film. This highly advanced device is the basis for a range of new analog instant cameras and hardware concepts to be introduced in 2013.

When Polaroid discontinued camera production in 2007, all know-how, machinery and components linked to analog instant camera production were being disrupted. With Impossible being dedicated to today’s creative market of analog instant photography by re-inventing new instant film materials, the development of a new analog instant hardware was the next major ambition. Impossible reinvented the FPU from scratch, based on today’s available components and materials and new expectations and demands.

Location over view of Chelsea Hotel roof top

by JamesNYCMay 27. 2012 08:44

Chelsea Hotel NYC - Location over view of Chelsea Hotel roof top.

The Chelsea Hotels long history of being the playground and home to the artists of the past and those to be determined in the future are now long gone.

The hotel has changed hands yet again and is currently being completely renovated.

The art and images that had previously adorned the hotels enterance are gone.

The footage of the roof top in the coming months will no longer be valid as the development company has plans to strip all of the existing 'Character' of the roof in order to bring in a more corporate presence on 23rd street.

If anyone has any desire to shoot at this location you had better do it soon; before the remaining elements of this historic Hotel are stripped and sold off.

Strobe and daylight mix lighting setup 5 Beekman St. NYC.

by JamesNYCMay 14. 2012 05:59

Here is a lighting setup we used on the roof of 5 Beekman St. for 1 of 40 we did on Saturday.

Strobe was around 1 stop over ambient to give that dark background look. This effect is best done using a camera with a leaf shutter but can be achieved with any DSLR with a flash sync of 1/200 sec. or better. A Pola filter will enhance this effect.
