Polaroid is one of the most widely recognized consumer brands in the world, thanks to the iconic status of its instant film cameras. The company was founded outside Boston, Massachusetts in 1937 by American inventor Edwin Land. His first instant camera debuted eleven years later, and it was called the Polaroid Land Camera Model 95. The product launch was an instant success, and Polaroid continued to innovate over the next several decades. 

The Polaroid instant camera became a part of popular culture like no other camera before or since. Artists, photographers, and consumers embraced the distinctive look of Polaroid photography, which was initially dismissed by critics as a passing fad. Global sales of Polaroid cameras peaked in 1991, but the years following were not kind. Although Polaroid was among the first to release a digital camera (the PDC 2000 in 1996), the company was slow to adopt the new technology. In 2001, Polaroid filed for bankruptcy.

A restructured Polaroid emerged and continued to sell instant film cameras until 2006 when production was finally halted. Today, Polaroid produces an affordable line of digital point-and-shoot cameras across three series, sporting features like large LCDs, colorful designs, and waterproof bodies. In a nod to its past, the company recently introduced a digital camera that prints photos directly from the camera itself.
