Although not a built-in feature, per se, creating double exposures with the Polaroid OneStep 2 is possible. It can be a bit addicting as well.
Note: this method also works on the OneStep+, though, connecting via Bluetooth and using the double exposure mode is a lot easier and yields more accurate exposures. Full article: here.
To create a double exposure on the OneStep 2, follow the steps below:
- Take a picture by depressing the shutter button, and keep holding the shutter button down
- While still holding the shutter button down, turn the camera OFF
- You can now release the shutter button
- Keep the camera OFF for 5 full seconds (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3...)
- Turn the camera back ON and take your second photo normally
- The photo will now eject as usual with the photo having been exposed twice
A couple extra tips:
- Turn the exposure compensation switch to darken (negative)
- The camera doesn't know that you're planning to take a double exposure and therefore will create an exposure to correctly expose the first scene. Doing this two times will therefore result in an over-exposed image. To help compensate, it is generally best to compensate to darken.
- Opening the film door works too
- If counting out 5 Mississippi's is beginning to feel like ages - you can substitute the turning the camera OFF / ON (steps 2 - 4) with simply opening up the film door. Ensure you keep the shutter button depressed while opening the film door. Then, release the shutter button, close the film door, and you are ready to take your second exposure.
