LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Polaroid Originals, a new brand dedicated to analog instant photography, will make its CES debut at this year’s show. On display from Polaroid Originals will be the Polaroid OneStep 2, the brand’s new instant analog camera that debuted in September 2017 to mark the 80th anniversary of the Polaroid brand. The Polaroid OneStep 2 will appear alongside the latest consumer electronics offerings from the Polaroid brand in booth #16615 located in Central Hall January 9-12.
“To celebrate our 80th anniversary in 2017, Polaroid returned to its analog instant photography roots with the launch of Polaroid Originals and the Polaroid OneStep 2. Our booth this year at CES is the perfect blend of old and new that truly embodies the Polaroid brand DNA,” said Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid. “Visitors to the booth will have the chance to experience the magic of analog instant photography that the brand is so famous for, as well as discover new easy-to-use products that make the latest technologies accessible to users all over the world.”
The Original is Back
CES will be the first immersive Polaroid Originals experience showcased in a colorful and creative exhibit. Visitors will be able to interact with the Polaroid OneStep 2 camera – an analog instant camera that is a proud successor to the original Polaroid OneStep camera that democratized instant photography 40 years ago. Attendees will also have the chance to vote on their favorite future Polaroid OneStep 2 concept camera, have their picture taken on the latest color and black & white Polaroid Originals film and experience various creative photographic techniques like emulsion lifts.
Retro Meets Modern
Visitors to the Polaroid booth will also have the opportunity to experience the Polaroid instant digital line of cameras and printers. Polaroid instant digital products are the perfect blend of retro instant prints and modern digital camera technology. All products in the line use the revolutionary ZINK® Zero Ink® printing technology which uses heat to produce full-color, high quality, long-lasting and smudge-proof photos. The Polaroid instant digital offering is highlighted by the Polaroid Pop camera which enables users to shoot and instantly print full-color photos as 3.5×4.25″ Polaroid border prints, or capture 1080p full HD video or GIFs. The camera can also connect to a mobile device using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing users to further share their photos with family and friends. The Polaroid Pop will be available to demo along with other popular models in the instant digital line.

Polaroid has always believed in making the latest technologies accessible to all consumers and the brand continues that proud tradition in 2018.
On display in the booth will be the new line of Polaroid 3D printers.
