January 10th, 2014 by Judy Davis

Sharing the love today… Sharing the news….  “Shakin’ it like a Polaroid Picture” will come back in style in 2014, baby!  And I know this because it was announced at CES this week.  Good ol’ CES… Don’t we love Technology and  Photography Day!?  and especially new technology announcements…  Bring on the excitement!



SocialMatic has joined forces with Polaroid to create a hot new little toy all of us will want to buy!  Introducing the Polaroid SocialMatic, a 14 megapixel camera; Wi-Fi enabled and completely ready to download social network sharing sites and apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.  As the website touts, this new camera has the appeal of the classic Polaroid cameras paired with today’s technology, bringing nostalgia of photo sharing to a whole new level.

Some are calling it the “Instagram Camera”  – most likely because of built-in filters featured in Instagram that you creatively apply to your images.  But in keeping with Polaroid history and familiarity, it has a built in ZINK printer, producing 2×3-inch color prints, right out of the side of the camera.  ZINK is the technology for Zero Ink printing for smudge-proof, water resistant and tear resistant photos.

It’s an AndroidTM-based OS with a 4.5″ touchscreen LCD display.  And for those of you Selfie fanatics, it has a built-in rear facing camera, as well.  Images will be stored on a MicroSD card or the camera’s internal 4GB storage.

Now I can’ get that song out of my head!  Hey Ya!  by Outkast

I’m gonna go Shake It Like a Polaroid Picture and celebrate!  ~and keep my eye on retailers for this fun little toy!!!  Coming Fall 2014
