The folks at Leica have done it again, releasing the brand’s very first instant camera. Even though digital photography holds reign nowadays, we can’t help but long for the retro cool of Polaroid film, with its instant developing and that classic white frame. Sorry Instagram, your filters will never be as cool as a Polaroid camera. Polaroid may no longer be making its iconic film, but luckily Leica just released something similar.
