Polaroid iM1836 Android Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera

Polaroid just announced the first Android-powered compact interchangeable-lens Wi-Fi digital camera. The new 18-megapixel Polaroid iM1836 camera is powered by the latest Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” operating system and comes with a 10-30mm optical zoom lens. Polaroid says any Micro Four Thirds system lens will work with an adapter.

The camera is produced by Sakar International, an authorized Polaroid licensee. Its Android capabilities allow consumers of any skill level to get professional-quality results without the cost and complexity of a professional system. The lightweight device is portable and compact, perfect for dropping it into a backpack or purse, ready to capture outstanding images wherever and whenever they happen.

The Polaroid iM1836 even captures wide-angle panoramic shots for impressive landscape photography without the added cost and weight of high-end equipment.

Tthe iM1836 camera also captures 1080p HD video. Plus, the built-in HDMI output turns this compact device into a multimedia player—just connect it to any TV or monitor to view video or photo slide shows.

With built-in peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and easy-to-use Polaroid photo sharing apps on board, the Polaroid iM1836 camera lets users instantly upload and share stunning, professional-quality image creations with friends via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flikr, Vimeo and more, all at the touch of a button. When Wi-Fi isn’t available, built-in Bluetooth connectivity pairs the Polaroid iM1836 camera with any Bluetooth-enabled device to upload images and video through a mobile phone, PC or even iPod Touch.

“People often take pictures with both their camera and their camera phone to get the image quality they want and the ability to share the moment with friends on Facebook or Twitter. Too often they miss the shot because they’re switching back and forth,” said Sakar President Jeff Saka. “This great little compact camera solves that problem, with exceptional Polaroid quality and the ability to upload and share those same images in real time.”

Price and Availability
The Polaroid iM1836 will be available in March 2013 for about $350.
