Polaroid POP – something for the nostalgia lover


If you’re someone who loves everything retro, but you like your nostalgia to come with a modern twist, the Polaroid POP might be just the ticket. Print pictures instantly from the camera or transfer them to your computer – it’s up to you.

There’s something very satisfying about getting your hands on an actual photo, and there’s nothing more iconic than the classic Polaroid picture. If we had to name a handful of things that remind us of the 80s, it would probably go something like… Shell suits, The Goonies, The Sony Walkman, Donkey Kong, and the Polaroid camera.



But the POP isn’t just an excuse to take a trip down memory lane, it’s got some proper tech built-in. The camera itself boasts a 20MP lens, enough to rival any current smartphone. And as well as taking great quality pics, it’ll capture video in Full HD.

The POP also includes a Micro SD slot making it easy to transfer your photos to your computer. But if you want an Instagram feed with a true retro feel, try printing and scanning your pics – it’ll add a whole new level of authenticity and nostalgia to your photos.
