Polaroid has always been known for its ever recognizable snapshots. Since 1948, the company produces models for Polaroid pictures, but with the digital era, the company has lost ground to cameras from Samsung, Sony, Nikon, Canon and other companies that have advanced in the industry.

The printer Zink Prints 2″ x 3″ photos on ink-free paper – hence the name ZINK (Zero Ink) – making smudge-proof and water resistant photos. The Poloraid Socialmatic comes in black or white, and looks exactly like an Istagram Logo. The camera will be available on the market in early 2015.
