Polaroid is back! Forget Facebook and Instagram. The best way to instantly share a photograph is to instantly print it out of the camera. Now Polaroid has figured out a way to do it without the bulky cameras and expensive film packs.
These new cameras print out a photo but they don't use ink!
Instead of using costly ink that can add up to hundreds of dollars over a year, the new Polaroid Snap camera uses color-changing crystals to produce vibrant images straight from the camera.
All you have to do is point, aim and shoot your image with the Snap cam and the heat-activated crystals start working their magic on the 2 x 3 inch paper. The technology works like a pictograph box - the light is absorbed through the lens, or pinhole, and the image is reflected onto the paper inside.
This neat little camera will run you just about $100 and comes with modern-day features like a selfie timer, filters and a slot to store an SD memory card.
"The Polaroid Snap camera's minimalist design features an updated look that incorporates design elements of legacy Polaroid instant cameras, such as the iconic Polaroid Color Spectrum," the Polaroid website boasts.
We think this camera seems like a fun alternative to the clunky, giant HDR camera, but what about you? Should we take a step back in time with this pictograph cam or should we stick to progress and hold true to the HDR cameras?
