Digital cameras let you see a picture instantly but we don’t really keep those memories in a solid form. Instead we share via internet and email or just show off stolen moments on cell phone screens. The Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera is bringing back the physical photograph.
There are like a million polaroids in in my house documenting all the bad hair and terrible fashion choices of my life. Taking a polaroid was a staple of my interactions. Sure, you can accomplish the same action with a cell phone selfie but there’s nothing quite like handing off a physical photograph. The camera prints the photo on 3×4 zinc paper that mimics the look of the classic white bordered photographs.
Of course this being a digital camera it’s really upped the ante when it comes to instant photographs. It comes with decorative boarders and effects as well as options to change the light profile for better pictures. It’s important to note that this camera wasn’t designed to take award winning photos (although, I’m sure with the right eye, you could), so don’t expect stunning masterpieces. Instead, relish in the joy of instantly sharing a photo for scrapbooks.
