The I-2 needs a lot of light to create incredible shots. Whether you’re taking a photo inside, outside on a cloudy day, or at night, you may need an extra light-boost from your flash.
1- NO TRIPOD, NO PROBLEM
Turn the flash on in Auto mode if you see a ? symbol in the viewfinder telling you there's not enough light and your photo may come out blurry.
2- FLASH RANGE
The Polaroid I-2 flash has a 2.5m (8ft) range and isn’t powerful enough to fully expose large areas, so get close to your subject or direct them closer to the background if you want to illuminate the whole scene.
3- EXTERNAL FLASH
The Polaroid I-2 camera also features a 2.5mm external flash sync port, which is handy for shooting in with studio lights or any other external flash. Just deactivate the camera’s flash, make sure you’re on Manual mode and use a light meter for the perfect exposure.
If you don't have an external flash setup, you can play around with a flashlight or any other creative external light source for some unexpected results.
