Pop Those Special Moments Right into the Photo Album
You don’t have to wait for prints with Polaroid POP 2.0
With phones and digital cameras in the hand of the young and old these days, there is no shortage of photos taken at any and all events. How often, however, are those pictures actually printed, and saved and presented? I know I hardly ever get the chance to print any of my photos and I take thousands every year. This is why I was so excited to get the Polaroid POP 2.0 camera. I can capture those special moments and print out the photo as they happen.

The Ease of Digital, And the Drawback
I grew up shooting with a manual camera on film. I even learned how to develop my own black and white film and photos. That film still holds a special place in my heart. But there is no denying that digital is quicker, easier, and much more convenient overall. Except in one area. I can take a million photos of my kids’ birthday parties, upload them to the cloud, and never see them again. At least until I realize I haven’t seen them and then I have to track down the ones I’m looking for through thousands of other photos.
Fixing the Drawback
I never had a classic Polaroid camera, but I had friends who did. And there is nothing as exciting as snapping a photo and shaking that little square to see how it turned out. Except sometimes it didn’t, and you just wasted film. The digital age has arrived, however, and Polaroid POP 2.0 camera has fixed this. I love that it has the convenience of a digital camera, the editing capabilities of a phone app, and the printing capabilities of a classic Polaroid instant camera.
Capturing Those Special Moments
With the holidays arriving much sooner than I am ready for, I’m so excited to pop out this new camera. Snapping photos of my kids decorating our tree is extra special this year as it’s the first year I can trust all of them to not smash anything. Plus my kiddos love to help. So I took a ton of digital photos of them helping, and a few other special moments, and printed out the best one after a few edits. I’m going to compile those photos on my scanner (or I can save the images to my phone through the wifi connected app) and turn them into this year’s holiday card.
Special Moments of Creativity
I also love that my little girl loves taking photos. Just like her mom. This has been a great camera to start her with (with supervision. She IS only 3.5). It is so easy to use and pretty darn durable. I do plan on getting a case for it to protect it even more, but it doesn’t feel like an urgent need. The photo editing is super fun and she loves picking special frames to frame her photos. And we know that it will print out perfectly every time. Each pack of paper comes with a calibration sheet to ensure the colors print correctly on the paper in that pack. It’s great and they come out wonderfully. The Polaroid POP 2.0 camera is wonderful all around. I know I’ll be saving these photos for years to come.
