Snap happy: Polaroid photography is back

The new Polaroid Two camera is set to hit Australia and NZ stores this month

Contrary to popular belief, the Polaroid is not dead — it’s making a comeback with a new Polaroid camera set to be launched in Australia.

The Summit Global Group has announced a partnership with Hagemeyer Brands Australia that has culminated in the launch of the new Polaroid Two Instant Digital Camera. The camera will hit Australian and New Zealand shores in May.

The Polaroid Two camera brings the brand into the modern photography era by incorporating both digital photography and instant photo printing: The 5-megapixel digital camera can prints images on the fly.

The Polaroid Two will retail for $269.95 and it prints 2x3 inch photos instantly using the ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology. The images are printed on Polaroid ZINK Photo Paper, which has an adhesive backing.

Hagemeyer Photographics' John Rule said that recent success of the Polaroid brand in US and Europe means that they have high hopes for its reception Down Under. “We’re ready to take this iconic brand to the next level in this exciting chapter of Polaroid's history,” he said.

Polaroid ZINK Photo Paper is available in a single pack of 10 sheets for $6.95, or a pack of 30 sheets for $19.95.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
