Polaroid Pop Camera

Polaroid has unveiled its new Polaroid Pop camera at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. The camera prints full color photos using Zink Zero Ink Printing Technology. This capability is also found in Polaroid's Polaroid Snap and Polaroid Snap Touch instant cameras. The Pop camera was designed in partnership with the Ammunition design firm.

The camera prints a 3.5 x 4.25 inch print with the Polaroid Classic Border Logo. The camera also has a 3.97-inch touchscreen LCD enabling users to frame shots and navigate the camera menu. The camera has a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and dual LED flash. It also provides 1080p full HD video recording.

Images and video are stoed on a micro SD card. The camera can connect to a mobile device using Wi-Fi and a Bluetooth chip. The free Polaroid print app can be used to edit and enhance photographs.

Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid, says in a statement, "Polaroid is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2017 and we could not think of a better way to kick-off this milestone year than with the debut of the Polaroid Pop instant digital camera at CES 2017. Perfectly blending nostalgia with modern design and functionality, the Polaroid Pop embodies the brand's 80-year history; staying true to the Polaroid core values of sharing, instant, fun and ease-of-use, while pushing the envelope with a fresh form factor and the latest technology."

The camera will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. Pricing has not yet been announced.
