The Polaroid Mint 2-in-1 is a digital camera for the selfie and Instagram generation. Social media may have eliminated the need for printing photos but the return of instant printing cameras says a lot about the need for instant keepsakes.
The camera is a 16MP wonder that saves photos into a microSD card (up to 256GB). It also features an automatic LED flash.
Like other instant cameras geared towards the selfie crowd, this too has a built-in selfie mirror so users can check whether they are in the frame. Yes, this doesn’t have screens of any kind so image composition is practically left in the hands of the mirror.
The camera also features a timer, which is helpful in getting everyone ready for a shot.
The Mint 2-in-1 digital camera uses inkless ZINK technology for the printing of photographs. Users can choose to print images in color, black and white, or sepia. They can even decide on whether or not a frame should be added to the picture.
The camera is available in several colors, including black, white, blue, red, and yellow. It costs about $100.
