  1. How many pictures can it print with the ink cartridge?

  2. Author

    *UPDATE* Purchase Link for The Polaroid Socialmatic Camera is LIVE & AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!!!!

  3. I agree with you! I want to know this information too! Totally want this!

  4. Where do I get this, and when does it come out? And how much would it be?

  5. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  6. especially since the public declaration of how void polaroid cameras are.

  7. @malbonster valid point, I often wonder the same. but fb seem to keep up with the times. would know for certain in another 10 or so years, will respond then, again. xxx

  8. i love photography and also instagram, and with this little camera i can bring my pictures to life! So i was wondering where i can get one?

  9. OMG!! I NEED THIS! PLease hurry and make this, i MUST own one! 🙂 Great idea and concept!

  10. Facebook bought instagram, so I think they are going to be okay either way 🙂

  11. L-O-V-E this concept, want to be a tester 🙂

    I’m sure along with the other million 😉

  12. The big question as Facebook paaetlus is can it avoid the fate of other social networks by becoming a broader utility platform. We could debate the levers all day, but it is a likely scenario that Facebook user numbers and usage per user could drop.Facebook seems to recognize this by trying to become a broader ecosystem. Tim Malbon @malbonster raised an interesting spectre over in his column at The Telegraph that Facebook’s extension into the entire web may cannibalize itself why visit Facebook when you can Like things or connect elsewhere? But this extension may be the best defense if Facebook can become the default log-in and sharing utility for the web universe.The real threat I think is what happens if consumers make a radical device usage change. If tablets and mobile really replace PCs and laptops, will Facebook be as addictive and easy to use there? I plug into FB via my iPhone now but Instagram seems so much more appealing in that small window.My bet, not to sound sour, is FB will fade eventually. Most of its utility is a multi-colored email interface, and consumers have a track record of moving on to better systems. We will see.

  13. Will it connect to our instagram profile on my iPhone? So I could use either camera and all be able to print off a photo on the instagram camera.

  14. A new, improved Polaroid camera. Smart. But probably not at all affordable.

  15. I don’t know how to feel about this.

  16. I don’t mind admitting that I would give serious consideration to purchasing such a device.

  17. It just wouldn’t surprise me if Apple already has a patent and can make this happen with a snazzy case/add on to an iphone. Snap a cool case/filmpack on your iphone, shoot as always with your phone, presto-photo. Afterall, the beauty of Instagram is that you always have it with you (in your phone). As a photographer, I always think about ways to have less gear, not more cameras.

  18. I gave my Polaroid camera away five years ago and was one of the last ones to have one. Too funny to see it now a hot “new” thing again. History is circles.

  19. Pleaaaaseeeeeeeeee make it available in markets soooon soon pleaseeeeeee 😀

  20. This is an even better product:

    gives you polaroids without having to carry around the big camera. just need your phone!
    right now they only have them to rent but apparently they hope to have them to sell soon!!

  21. I swear this could break records for being the most successful project on Kickstarter. I want one!!

  22. This is what Polaroid should’ve done to stay in the game, but just regular-ass digital photos.

  23. It’s a “new” polaroid camera… who cares…

  24. it’s cool I have an iPhone. BEEEAUTIFUL paper weight though!

  25. Why couldn’t they put it on Kickstarter?

  26. This is blowing my mind. They somehow have made an old Polaroid camera into something everyone is calling a “genius new invention.”

  27. About a million hipsters just came in their pants.

  28. When is it coming out!??!!?!?!?!?!!??!! SOON?! Please? <3 🙂 <3 🙂
