Proving to be a leader in the POV camera space, Polaroid is now shipping the new Polaroid Cube+ Wi-Fi-enabled lifestyle action camera, just in time for holiday shopping.
In 2014, its predecessor, the Polaroid Cube lifestyle action camera, challenged the notion that action cameras were solely the tools of extreme sports enthusiasts. With its stylish, cube shape, fun colors and accessories, competitive features, and reasonable price-point, the Polaroid Cube opened up the market to everyday consumers and families wanting to capture life's moments in HD.
Now the Wi-Fi-enabled Polaroid Cube+ continues to push the boundaries of what's possible in the segment with pairing to smart devices. With the free Polaroid Cube+ iOS or Android app, users can access a viewfinder, control the camera and save images and videos directly to their tablets or phones. With better image resolution and improved memory and battery life, the Polaroid Cube+ Wi-Fi-enabled lifestyle action camera continues to innovate while remaining considerably more affordable than its competitors. Led by industrial designer Robert Brunner, the Polaroid Cube+ was designed by Ammunition, the design studio behind award-winning consumer brands like Adobe, Beats by Dre, Square, Lyft and Williams-Sonoma.
In addition to its new Wi-Fi capabilities, the Polaroid Cube+ lifestyle action camera features other upgrades including image stabilization, the ability to capture 8 megapixel still images, and video capabilities enhanced from 1080p to 1440p at 30 frames per second, all with simple one-button operation. The Polaroid Cube+ also boasts a memory slot to record up to 128GB (up from 64GB) using a MicroSD card (class 10). Users can record up to 107 minutes at 720p at 60 fps thanks to the high capacity battery. Mountable to almost anything, it's shockproof, weather-proof, splash-resistant, and ready for every kind of family adventure.
"We have a longstanding commitment to delivering fun, easy to use and instant capture products that evoke our brand's heritage but are relevant to today's digital consumer, without putting a large dent in their wallet," said Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid. "We brought the Polaroid Cube to market over a year ago, and since then have listened to the feedback we received from our consumers. With the holidays right around the corner, we are proud to meet your needs with a Wi-Fi-enabled lifestyle action camera so you can instantly capture and share your favorite moments wherever your adventures take you."
With the launch of the Polaroid Cube+ Wi-Fi-enabled lifestyle action camera, Polaroid will also be introducing the Polaroid CUBE Club, a virtual community of amateur photographers and videographers uploading content for sharing and entering their work for prizes. The evergreen, user-generated contests run on social media channels and encourage participation at www.polaroidcube.com/cubeclub for Polaroid Cube users, Polaroid Cube+ users, and everyone else. Thematic "assignments" include seasonal and cultural elements. This holiday season Polaroid CUBE Club members are submitting entries to categories like Let's CU BE Spooky, Let's CU BE Thankful, Let's CU BE Festive and Let's CU BE Merry. Winners in each category receive a free Polaroid Cube+ bundle, which includes the camera and accessories.
"With the holiday season around the corner, we are excited to offer the Polaroid Cube+, perfect for capturing memories at holiday festivities and winter adventures," Hardy added. "Consumers are all about instant gratification and catching adventures off the cuff, enabling them to revisit memories. The Polaroid Cube+ is an essential everyday companion to be sure you never miss a minute."
