The eagerly anticipated Polaroid Cube lifestyle action video camera is now shipping and cracking open the high-octane action market for everyday consumers who want to capture videos with friends, family or pets anywhere. In recent months, the camera has piqued everyone’s interest, as the Polaroid Cube is a cute, fun, lighthearted camera that truly embodies the Polaroid DNA.

“Just as Polaroid did with photography in the 70s, we are expanding the lifestyle action camera market for the family, or everyday user. We’re not all cliff divers or extreme athletes, many of us would like to be able to capture and share a monumental moment such as our child’s first bike ride, a walk in the park with the family dog or a family weekend beach excursion out on the water,” said Scott W. Hardy, President and CEO of Polaroid. “The Polaroid Cube offers the everyday user a fun, easy to use way to capture the exciting action unfolding in their daily lives.”

Innovative Design
Embodying the Polaroid commitment to helping people capture and share life’s most memorable moments, the Polaroid Cube lifestyle action video camera features an iconic one-button design, a rugged, rubberized exterior, and built-in magnet allowing it to attach to bicycle handlebars, helmets, household appliances and more. Renowned design firm Ammunition created the product and packaging design of the Polaroid Cube and its accessories. Led by industrial designer Robert Brunner, Ammunition is the design studio behind award-winning consumer products for brands including Adobe, Beats by Dre, Square, and Williams-Sonoma.

My Take on the Book
This is a great portable camera that allows you to truly take the world with you. No matter where you go or what you are doing you can take video or still images on the go or while standing still. The camera is so small, but it does take good quality images. I gave this to my daughter to try on the go and she took to it like a fish to water. She loved being able to connect this to her bike or to her skateboard and turn on the video component. She enjoyed showing the videos to her friends and loved being able to just put it into her pocket at the end of the day and take it with her again on her next adventure.

While I had not tried action cams before, this camera made it easy to be able to capture the world around you. I enjoyed that the camera allowed you to be able to expand the memory with a micro SD Card. I had an extra 32GB Micro SD and it allowed me to be able to record videos for a long time. My daughter has made quite a few videos and she has only struck the surface of the memory.

I have yet to speak of the design, but the camera is stylish. The magnet that comes with this is powerful and can hold well to any metal surface no matter what direction you place it. I also have found that it seems to stick on almost any metal surface that I have tried thus far.

All-in-all this was a great, versatile camera that my daughter is still having a blast with!
