Top 5 places to eat...

...around the Vienna office

by Thomas Preyer

When you "survive" one of our tours, you will most likely be craving something tasty to eat. Therefore we gathered our favorite places to eat, close to the ending point of our tours, our office. Treat yourself after a long morning of sightseeing with something delicious to bite.

The PolaWalk office is located in Vienna's 9th district, Alsergrund. It is close to the metro stations Schottentor and Schottenring and right next to the tram station Schlickgasse.

Let's find out what the top 5 are!

The Jury is out! What other's say...

Bloggers on PolaWalk

by Thomas Preyer

A PolaWalk is an unique event and therefore an individual experience. No tour is like the other. Today we present you a number of bloggers that joined one of our tours. Just click their highlighted names and read what they have to say about their tour (some of them are in German).

Weibi brought here dog Puppi on the walk last year. That dog even has it's own Facebook page! Fräulein Catherine was on the same tour. They all pulled of a magnificent jump Polaroid. Catherine liked us so much she even mentioned us in here hotspots Top 10 for Vienna! That was even before we launched our shop. We got way more awesome since ;-)

Test Lab - New Impossible Generation 2.0 Color Film

Welcome to the Test Lab - Today: Testing new instant film

by Thomas Preyer

Hey everyone,

today we are testing the new version of "The Impossible Project" Color 600 film. It is, at the moment, only available to Impossible Pioneers and will be released to the public later in 2014.

New opacification layer

Among the most distinctive changes is the new opacification layer. That layer is made to protect your image from light, as there is, within all film, a negative layer in an instant picture. This dark blue, chemical layer currently needs about 30 minutes to fully disappear.

The new layer will start to disappear a lot faster, as you will see, after about 2 minutes. The picture will still need about 30 minutes to fully develop, but you will see a lot sooner if you have shot or not. This is, in my opinion, a huge step forward.

What else changed? Well, read on and watch the video for more information.

Project 365 - A Polaroid a day...

Our 365 project - A Polaroid a day keeps the doctor away. 

by Thomas Preyer

What is a 365 project?

We decided to challenge ourselves with a 365 photography project. What is that?

Quite simple: Take a picture. One each day. For a year.

365project.org is a website dedicated to these kind of photo projects and has a lot of useful tips, but we decided to do it on our Flickr page. Naturally we only use scans of Polaroids for the project.
