(Pocket-lint) – Polaroid is pretty much royalty in the instant camera world, at least as far as brand awareness goes. Ask anyone on the street to name an instant camera and there’s a good chance they’ll go with its well-worn name.
It’s a more competitive market than it seems, though, and while Polaroid still has some great modern instant cameras, there’s always room for improvement in a world where Fujifilm just keeps on making great Instax alternatives.
Now, Polaroid has debuted the Polaroid Go – the new world’s smallest instant camera, and a great-looking little bit of tech. It’s just 10.5 cm long, 8.4 cm wide, and 6.1 cm tall, which is a long way of saying that’s it’s genuinely tiny.
It packs bespoke miniature Polaroid film to go with the new form-factor, too, making it a clear competitor to the smaller Instax format that has served Fujifilm so brilliantly.
The camera has a few standard tricks up its sleeve, too: a new selfie mirror to make framing shots easier, a self-timer, dynamic flash, and the option of double exposure, which always looks great on instant film.
The camera is on pre-sale today, and available fully on April 27, for £109.99, with a double pack of film coming it at £18.99.
