Socialmatic has announced the pricing of its Polaroid-like camera, which will become available in the first part of 2014.
Socialmatic came into the spotlight back in 2012, when the company unveiled a concept camera inspired by two very popular brands: Polaroid and Instagram. The former is a photography legend, which has gone bankrupt, while the latter is one of today’s most used photo-sharing and social networking websites.
Polaroid Socialmatic camera to become available sometime in 2014
After signing an agreement with Polaroid’s copyright holder, C & A Marketing, Socialmatic has revealed that the device will become available for sale in early 2014
The Polaroid Socialmatic camera comes packed with a lot of exciting specs, like dual image sensors. There is a 14-megapixel front-facing sensor, while a rear-mounted 2-megapixel sensor will be great for taking portrait shots.
The device also features an LED flash to light up darker scenes, a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen to control the settings, stereo speakers, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, built-in 4G memory, and an SD card to boost the total storage space.
Polaroid Socialmatic camera price to stand at $299
Meanwhile, Socialmatic has just announced the price of the upcoming Polaroid camera. According to the company, the shooter will sell for $299 across the world. However, the final amount will depend on taxes and other expenses.
This seems like a small price to pay for being able to take digital photos and instantly print them, just like in the good old days filled with Polaroid shooters.
Users will easily and instantly print their photos
Photographers will also be able to apply filters to their images. Most of them are inspired by Instagram and they will add a little creative touch to the shots.
On the other hand, the printing capabilities will be ensured by a Zink printer. Since WiFi is supported, the camera can be connected to wireless printers, so that consumers can print photos remotely.
Now that the Polaroid Socialmatic camera price has been revealed, all that is missing is an actual release date. The company promises that we will hear more soon, therefore potential customers should stay tuned.
