Last year at CES, Polaroid teased a new instant camera (the PIC-1000 – shown below) based on a classic retro design and created quite a buzz about the coming camera.
Unfortunately, the PIC-1000 never came to fruition even though it was supposed to ship in 2010 for less than $100. Instead, we got the $90 (now $80) Polaroid PIC-300 (below) that printed wallet-sized prints costing $10 for a 10-pack (or $1 per print for you math majors out there).
This time around, it looks like Polaroid is teasing another instant camera to be revealed at CES 2011, which will hopefully bring back the traditional 3.1″ x 3.1″ prints from the old 600 cameras.
I’ve been a bit of a fuddy-dud about these early analog rebirth cameras/film from Polaroid and Fuji, but I might be able to warm up to a more traditional format Polaroid camera.
What about you? Any interest in a new Polaroid camera? What’s the ideal price-point for camera and film to bring you to the table?
