The I-1 features an advanced ring flash that provides soft, diffused light. We recommend to always use the flash for every shot, unless you’re shooting in bright, direct sunlight. Due to the high power requirements of the ring flash, we recommend that you always charge the I-1 before use, using the USB charging cable provided. If you plug this cable into a smartphone charger, you only need to charge the camera for 20-30 minutes. Or if you are using a laptop power supply, you should charge for up to 2 hours.
The I-1 ring flash is made up of 12 individual LEDs. 8 LEDs (1 red, 7 white) provide the main light source and give status indications - these are supplemented by 4 smaller LEDs. When you take a photo, all 12 LEDs will flash at once, to provide a bright but soft light.As well as lighting photos, the ring flash also gives you information about the camera’s current status.
You can use the ring flash to see how much film is left in the pack, how much battery you have left and to connect your camera to the Impossible I-1 App. Read more on how to check how much film is left in the pack Read more on how to check how much battery is left in the Impossible I-1 Read more on how to connect the Impossible I-1 App to your camera.
