Polaroid Android Camera IM1836 with Interchangeable Lens introduced

The first Android based Mirror less interchangeable lens camera from Polaroid (iM1836) is now official and it is indeed produced by Sakar as previously reported. Polaroid, the company which once attempted to launch a digital camera with the Android OS, has now come into the news again, with another attempt in the same concept. “There will be an Android powered, interchangeable lens camera introduced by Polaroid at CES 2013,” Scott Hardy, president and CEO of Polaroid told Imaging Resource in an emailed statement.

The new 18 megapixel Polaroid iM1836 was announced at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show, the first and only Android™-powered compact interchangeable-lens smart camera. Featuring the latest Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the iM1836 comes with a 10-30mm optical zoom lens which has sensor that can capture 1080p at 60fps and provides consumers the option of using all Micro Four Thirds system lenses with the camera, using the accompanying adaptor. 

The Polaroid iM1836 is the first camera of its kind to pair interchangeable lens options like those previously found only on D-SLR cameras with the intuitive Android™ operating system. Lightweight and portable, it's a great option for capturing professional quality images and 1080p HD video on the go. Its built-in peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and easy-to-use Polaroid photo sharing apps allow users to immediately upload and share their images via social media. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity pairs the camera with any Bluetooth-enabled device to upload images and video when Wi-Fi isn't available.

It Also Packs With Wi-Fi And Bluetooth for East Transfer between devices. It is significantly smaller than the Galaxy Camera and Cheaper also, Its comes with a 3.5-inch multi-touch display And Some apps Comes Pre-loaded Like as Facebook, Google plus, Playstore etc. This may sound a bit strange, but the maker argues that this means that there's no need to worry about getting dust in the sensor when you're swapping lenses. Not that there are actually any other confirmed to choose from right now.

Not only does the Polaroid iM1836 better spec’d than its immediate competition, but it will come in at $399, some $200 cheaper than the Galaxy Camera, and includes a 10-30mm equivalent kit lens. The Polaroid iM1836 camera looks like fantastic value, especially since it will be compatible with any micro 4/3 lens with an adapter.
