In the Ideal Gifts series, The Next Web team shares personal recommendations for gifts to give this holiday season.
When it comes to Christmas gifts, a little nostalgia can go a long way. Polaroid’s Snap camera has just the right amount of that, along with some nifty tech for $99.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
It was revealed in September but only went on sale last month and comes in four colors – black, white, red and blue.
Inside, the Polaroid Snap is a 10MP digital camera with an on-board printer that uses ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology, which allows you to print 2×3″ prints in full color immediately after taking a photo. You can continue to shoot other images while there’s one printing too.
When you’re shooting with the camera, you can choose between three image styles: Black and white, color and vintage, which adds an old-school faux-border to the photo.
