Across several generations, people regard Polaroid as one of the most trusted, well-respected and recognizable brands when it comes to technology.  The history of Polaroid began 75 years ago, with its roots stemming back to Polaroid instant film, cameras and camera accessories – thus was the introduction of the famous Polaroid Classic Border Logo which is still recognized today as a true landmark of photography.

In recent years, Polaroid has expanded its range of products in consumer electronics and photography, such as 3D TVs, tablets, instant cameras and mobile printers, e-book readers, digital high-definition camcorders, waterproof digital cameras and more. People can expect to see new Polaroid products that will deliver the fun, instant gratification and value that the brand has long stood. For more information, visit www.polaroid.com.

The newest additions to Polaroid’s robust instant camera and camcorder offering, the Polaroid XS sports video cameras provide users with the ability to take videos and still images in a variety of sport settings. 

Waterproof technology, low-light capabilities and a sleek, lightweight form enable action enthusiasts to capture and share all of life’s adventures. Additionally, video and images can be captured virtually anywhere thanks to a variety of mounts that come standard with each model.  

The Polaroid XS100 is ready for action with its easy-to-use single button record. Features include:

  • Professional 5MP sensor, HD video in 720p, 960p and 1080p video and 3MP, 5MP and 16MP still images.

  • Aerodynamic design, shock-proof exterior and distortion-free ultra wide lens, which provides 170° of coverage, helps ensure the highest-quality videos, even during extreme action.

  • Adjustable frame rates like burst shooting mode, time lapse and fast and slow motion, allowing users to see their action in a new way.

  • Auto rotation G-Sensor so the camera will always capture the best shot, no matter it’s position.

  • Waterproof for up to 10m and features professional low-light performance for shooting in all environments.

  • Dual file recording with every HD video, creating an additional smaller file for easier uploading and sharing to social media sites.

putting Polaroid to the test

Polaroid has always been synonymous with cameras, but have now entered the action cam market. The Polaroid XS100 is a simple to use, and ready to hit the water action cam. Easy on/off button, but you can also take a snapshot with the push of a simple button. The XS100 is fairly light and easily attaches to any camera mount, and best of all it's waterproof for up to 30 feet. The video is of a good quality, and I was impressed with the video that was taken in low light situations, such as at dusk. Videos are easy to download as well. Overall I've been pleasantly pleased with the quality and abilities of the camera. My complaint would be that it is not remote capable, and the angler has to manually turn on and off the camera. The XS100 action cam provides quality video out on the water regardless of the angle. The ability to simply shoot hi definition video, but also take still shots at 16MP is an amazing feature. The price point for this camera is what truly sets it apart from its competitors. At a retail value of just under $160, this action cam is priced to allow everyone a chance to record their epic catch while on the water.
