way cool do you remember the days of click and peel ?

Nostalgia Never Dies:

By Leslie Lasiter –

Amidst the slew of top-of-the-line, hi-tech photography gear, it’s refreshing to see something old made new again. The Polaroid Instant Camera has been a mainstay in garage sales and thrift stores, eventually finding a home with a member of its large cult following. Despite its antiquated photo processing and bulky shape, the Polaroid is beloved for its stuck-in-time quality, and dreamy, if not slightly blurry, images.

The new Polaroid Z2300 shares many of the treasured qualities of its predecessor, with its simplistic layout and paperweight-like quality. If it were a car, it would likely be dubbed a “clunker,” but its heaviness should not dissuade the devout instant camera fans from giving it a shot. The camera has a three-inch LCD screen and 10 megapixel sensor, and can print photographs the size of a business card on ZINK paper.

In photography chronology, the Polaroid Z2300 occupies a space somewhere between the old Polaroid 600 Instant Cameras and Instagram. Staying true to its roots, the Z2300 prints out photographs within seconds to give you something tangible to put in your wallet or stick to your photo album (the photographs have a peel-away adhesive on the back). However, if your photo album has already made the jump from scrapbook to Macbook, the Z2300 has a USB port for easy uploading.

Much like Instagram, the Polaroid Z2300 allows users to choose from a variety of vintage filters, and even adds the classic Polaroid white border. The Z2300 can be pre-ordered now for $159.99 and has an August 15th ship date. A 30 pack of the ZINK paper costs $14.99, a bargain considering the hefty price tag on a ten pack of Polaroid 600 film. For lovers of low-tech cameras, the Polaroid Z2300 puts a hi-tech twist on a classic.
