Polaroid Snap Touch is an instant camera with digital flair
Missing physical prints? The Polaroid Snap Touch has you covered.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 11/27/2016

The original idea behind photo sharing is back with a newly remained camera. the Polaroid Snap Touch is technically a digital camera -- it uses a 13 megapixel digital sensor -- but it spits out instant prints true to Polaroid's past.

The camera works by using a built-in ZINK printer. ZINK paper has ink crystals embedded inside, which are activated by heat. That means you can print a photo by only reloading the paper, no ink necessary. That allows Polaroid to take a digital photograph and spit out an instant print while still making the camera compact. Built-in Bluetooth and a Polaroid app allows users to share electronically without a computer as well.

The Polaroid Snap Touch is scarce on the details however -- we don't know how large the sensor is, or even how fast it can shoot, just that there's a burst mode included. With the $179 price tag, we're expecting that the best thing about this camera is the built-in printer. If the idea is to share images instantly in both the traditional and social media sense of the word, then the camera is a good option. We're just not sure it would be capable of winning any photo contest -- but only some experience with the camera will determine that.

The Polaroid Snap Touch is a fun camera that's great for sharing photos -- it adds a touchscreen over the original Polaroid Snap -- to make accessing the camera's controls even easier. The latest version also has a new photo booth mode and a mirror on the front to assist with framing a selfie. The camera comes in six different colors and will be available in November 2016.
