At the on-going CES 2017, Polaroid is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the announcement of a new camera – the Polaroid Pop. It is an instant camera that can print out pictures using ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology, but what makes it interesting is that it is a modernised version of a Polaroid instant camera that is equipped with a 20MP sensor, allowing it to capture and store digital photos as well.
The Polaroid Pop prints out pictures in the iconic 3” x 4” format with the Polaroid Classic Border Logo, resulting in a 3.5” x 4.25” print. With a 20MP CMOS sensor on board, you can also take digital prints, and even videos at 1080p. Other specs include a 3.97” touch display, dual-LED flash, image stabilisation, and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 128GB.
On top of that, the Pop also doubles as a photo printer with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity on board. Just transfer existing images from your phone to the camera via the Polaroid Print app for iOS and Android, and print them out. The app also allows you to edit and enhance your prints with creative filters, digital stickers, effects and controls.
The Polaroid Pop will be out in the fourth quarter of the year in three colour models – black and white, colour, and vintage sepia for the iconic Polaroid look and feel. Sadly though, Polaroid did not mention anything about the price, but since the launch is so far away, you have plenty of time to save up.
