Instant Snaps At A Price
Just when you were convinced that the mobile phone was killing the camera for all but the specialist up pops Polaroid and new instant digital camera, the Polaroid Pogo or Two.
On the plus side you simply point click and adjust and print and out of the box in just over half a minute comes a physical print. The camera is 5.0 megapixels so competes with the best of the smartphones the 3” LCD screen certainly shows you what you have taken and a 2x 3 inch print takes us back to the good old Polaroid One. You are able to adjust the digital image and record to a memory stick to transfer them and the battery is good for some 15 prints.
What’s the downside is the price a whopping great £229.95. The price may make it at under a £100 but why buy a snappy camera when you have 90% of that on a decent mobile? Is an instant print that sexy and worth the money – we think not.
