Polaroid to flog camera with built-in Instagram filters

5 March 2013

Polaroid are going to release a camera with built-in Instagram filters next year, which is excellent news for those who can't work out how to download a simple app on their phone and get actual Instagram filters in the first instance.

The device will, of course, print out its own photos, but you'll be able to share them online too.

The camera will come with 3G and Wifi connectivity and 16GB of storage and the concept designs - top right - look pretty nice, but the actual product may look rather different.

With Polaroid going through bankruptcy twice in the last decade, this could be just the thing to spark some life into the company. Lomo photography is popular at the moment, so they'd do well to hurry this up.
