Polaroid Unveils Four New Cameras, Including an Android Powered Micro Four Thirds CameraPolaroid has announced some surprising new cameras at CES, three of which are Interchangeable Lens (ILC) cameras that use the popular Olympus/Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lens mount system. The iM1030 and iM1232W are pretty much the same camera, with the exception that the iM1232W offers built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. While offering impressive features like a Micro Four Thirds lens mount, an 18-megapixel mFT sensor, and 3.5-inch LCD, they are shadowed a bit by the new iM1836; which really takes center stage.
The iM1836 offers similar specifications to its iM-series brethren, however Polaroid has done a first in the ILC category by incorporating Android's 4.1 "Jelly Bean" operating system, along with a 3.5-inch touch screen LCD and built-in Wi-Fi. This means you can easily download apps to your camera, like Facebook, and post photos and video to you and your friend's pages; right from the camera. All that's required is a Wi-Fi connection to the internet.
Lastly, they announced a new "bridge camera", the iS2433. This model offers a nice enlarged hand grip, a pop-up flash unit, a 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor, 3.0-inch LCD, and a 24x optical zoom lens.
