Polaroid Snap – A Digital Camera That Prints Photos on the Go
Polaroid is the company best known for its instant-film camera from the 70’s which revolutionised photography back in the day. An old school, no non-sense camera that made it easy for anyone to become a photographer, and in the true sense made photography a thing for the youth.
It’s been decades since the release of the photo spitting device, but Polaroid still thinks it can attract new, younger customers to the brand with this refreshed take of the old concept. And, to be honest, the marketing guys at Polaroid have got their thinking right.
The Polaroid Snap is a cute looking digital camera that throws out instant-film prints and it even has the iconic rainbow stripe. Since this is a digital camera, it comes with a couple of nifty features not present on its predecessors. A 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD on the back of the Snap lets users line up shots or even select photos to print at any time.
The Snap’s bluetooth capability allows other devices carrying photos to connect to it and lets them print from Polaroid’s printing barrel. The Snap has a 10-megapixel sensor, shoots 1080p Full HD video, and has a microSD card slot for expandable storage. No launch plans for India have been revealed, but considering its price $99 (Approx Rs, 6,500) if it indeed lands on our shores, this camera is sure going to have a lot of takers.
