The Instant Photo Printing Camera brings back the days of the old Polaroid cameras that shot out a piece of photo paper so you could watch your photo develop right before your eyes. I don’t think you’ll watch these develop, but using “a self-developing high-speed film, the camera produces a vibrant, scrapbook-worthy 2.5″ H x 3.75″ W color print in only 20 seconds.” The camera has a auto-retracting lens, automatic exposure control, built-in auto flash, optical viewfinder, motorized film advance, and an LCD control panel that displays focal distance and film count to make getting great photos easy. It comes with a snap-on lens with a mirror for close-ups and “selfies”, wrist strap, and four AA batteries, plus a 20-count pack of film to get you started. The Instant Photo Printing Camera is $149.95; Hammacher Schlemmer is taking pre-orders for shipping on 3/9/2015. Extra packs of the paper for the camera is also available for $24.95 per pack.
