Did You Own A Polaroid Camera? You'll Want To Get This New Version

If you grew up in the 80s, your childhood photos are probably printed on the iconic squares that show they were taken by a Polaroid camera.

Snapping a picture, taking it out of your camera, and shaking it until it developed was a ritual everyone learned, but Polaroid's instant cameras gradually became less popular.

Today's cameras - and even our phones - take really great photos, but there was just something cool about taking a picture and watching it develop before your eyes. Fortunately, the company has introduced a new version of their classic product to celebrate their 80th anniversary this year.

The Polaroid Pop combines the snap and print technology that made Polaroids beloved around the world, with a few modern twists.

The Pop is a digital camera that also prints out your snaps in under a minute.

It uses a special technology that prints your photos without ink, so you don't have to worry about replacing cartridges. Unfortunately, that also means there's no reason to shake your photos anymore (but we're sure Polaroid won't mind if you still do it anyways).

The camera even has a 4 inch touch screen on the back, so you can make sure your photos look perfect.

Plus you'll never have to worry about losing your photos again. The Pop prints out smudge, water, and tear resistant photos. They even have an adhesive back, so you can turn any picture into a sticker for easy decorating. You can also save your photos on a micro sd card inside the camera, so you can give a snap away to a friend and still keep your own copy.

Don't rush out to the stores to get this awesome camera, because it won't be available until later this year. Still, it's exciting just thinking about all of the great pictures we'll be able to take with this.

The Pop seems like the perfect combination of nostalgia and modern technology, and we can't wait to have it!
