We’ve already seen a few countdowns to Memorial Day weekend this week (the unofficial start of summer holiday here in the U.S), which means that many of you are probably in the planning stage of your summer vacations. That means packing your instant film cameras (maybe even packing Impossible’s new I-1) and instant film. With that in mind, hopefully you’ll enjoy this round up of Impossible’s Tutorial Tuesday: How To Travel With Impossible Film.
