Polaroid is Back! Sort Of…

Polaroid is Back! Sort Of�

The Polaroid 300 Instant Camera purports to be the reincarnation of the hugely popular Polaroid which officially died in 2008. But its picture size is a puny 2.1” x 3.4” only, with an even smaller image size of 1.8” x 2.4”. Film SLR users can’t use this!

The Polaroid 300 is the lovechild of a union between the Summit Global Group, the exclusive worldwide licensee for Polaroid branded imaging devices, and Fujifilm. Yes, Fujifilm, that’s why this Polaroid 300 looks very much like the Fujifilm Instax Mini 7.

And the price? $90, ladies and gentlemen, for a camera which used to sell for $65. You pay premium, too, for the film – a dollar the each.
