The Polaroid brand has been licensed to CES gadgets for years now, and so of course it’s back again this year on another new camera that mashes up digital and physical photography. It’s called the Polaroid Pop, and it shoots (and prints!) 3-inch by 4-inch instant photos using inkless Zink photo paper.
The Pop is just like its predecessors in that it’s not just an instant camera — it’s also a digital camera, meaning you can shoot in either format or both at the same time. What’s refreshing about the specs of the Pop, though, is that this time around the internals actually seem decent on paper… More at The Verge.
