With the release of the KODAK STEP, instant photography has come full circle. This small point-and-shoot camera is a great alternative to whipping out your phone at memorable events. As one of the classic photography giants, KODAK has got the balance exactly right with their STEP model. It’s a great mix of digital and traditional photography.
The KODAK STEP is slightly bigger than your phone and lets you shoot and print immediately on 2″ x 3″ sticky photos. Alternatively you can save your 10MP shots to an sd-card.

KODAK STEP vs Fujifilm Instax vs Teenage Engineering I-1
I’ve owned the FujiFilm Instax Mini as well as the Teenage Engineering I-1 (Impossible one indeed) in the past.
The Instax Mini is a fun and cheap point-and-shooter, that’s easy to use, but kind of a bulky device. This camera may miss some of the flexibility to configure your shots to be the best in every situation.
The Teenage Engineering I-1 was expensive at the time of its release. The design is beautiful, but it’s tough to get a good shot out of it. The I-1 excels in portrait photography with its soft, diffused light. The price has become pretty competitive right now with the release of similar Polaroid models.
