They say good things come in small packages and that’s definitely true of the Polaroid Cube+, the next generation of the popular Polaroid Cube. While the Cube+’s form factor remains unchanged from before (a 35mm cube with a single power/record/toggle button), there are some welcome additions: an increased camera resolution (8MP vs the previous 6MP), Wi-Fi capability, and an accompanying app (for iOS and Android devices).
The Cube+ is equipped with a microphone and a 124° wide-angle lens, and can record video continuously for 90 minutes after a full battery recharge. Recording is simple – either use the camera button or the app which, by the way, lets you do some cool stuff like take slow motion videos and burst mode photos. Once you are done recording the app lets you wirelessly transfer your videos and pictures to your phone.
The Cube+ is weather resistant and splash proof, but there is also an optionally purchasable waterproof case for shooting under rainy weather conditions or capturing some underwater action up to 10 meters below. Apart from the camera case, Polaroid provides a host of mounting options such as the suction mount, the tripod mount, and the strap mount. Additionally, the Cube+ has a built-in magnet so it possible to just stick it onto surfaces such as your bicycle’s handlebar.
The Polaroid Cube+ is available in black, blue and red color options.
