Polaroid Cube

 

From an iconic film manufacturer, a simple but clever HD action cam

Polaroid Cube

 

The tiny Polaroid Cube is an excellent choice as a bargain-priced action cam, offering no frills, but surprisingly good video.

Good video quality. Tiny. Inexpensive. Simple to use. Rugged

Relatively narrow field of view for an action cam. Low-res still images. Limited video resolution choices

When Polaroid announced its budget-priced, miniature action cam, the Cube ($99.99), in mid-2014, I couldn't resist pre-ordering one. At worst, I figured, I would be out a hundred bucks. But it has proven a wonderful purchase. The Cube is compact, very...

Polaroid Cube review

 

Polaroid's Cube isn't as tough as a GoPro or as high-quality as a handheld cam, but at $99, the easy-to-use action cam makes a novel way to shoot from new perspectives.

Polaroid Cube review: Hands-free video in an ultrasmall package

 

It might be indelibly linked to instant cameras and film, but the Polaroid brand has long been seen on other products like tablets, televisions, headphones, and, yes, action cams such as the XS100i .

The Polaroid Cube is an ultrasmall and lightweight action cam for catching life's little moments on the fly. It can be used for capturing HD-resolution video, snapping photos, and as a dashboard cam.

The only mount included is its built-in magnet. No microSD card is included for storage. Video quality is just OK considering the price. Video is split into 5-minute clips while recording.

The eye-catching Polaroid Cube is an inexpensive 1080p action cam with video quality that takes a backseat to design.

Polaroid Cube Review

 

What do you do with a cube that fits in the palm of your hand, sticks to metal with a magnet, and takes photos and video? You capture the world around you, of course. You capture it casually, and you capture it with the playfulness and joy that the...

Is the Polaroid Cube worth the cash? Absolutely. Even without apps, even without a viewing screen. Even without the ability to toss it down a mountain. You’ll be able to pick the Polaroid Cube up in Orange/Red, Blue, or Black (we’ve got Black)...

Polaroid Cube Review: A Tiny Adorable Camera

 

The Polaroid Cube is a delightful little camera that takes still shots and video. Like the name suggests, it's a tiny little cube just 35mm on a side. It sticks to any and all magnetic surfaces — even your dinner fork. It can be tossed around and taken...

Great concept ; Cute design ; Loads of mounts

Tough to use outdoors ; No internal memory or bundled SD card ; No compelling case to replace your smartphone camera

The little light above the power button is tough to see in full daylight — aaand kind of when it’s dark out too. When I started my pre-dusky bike ride, I had to hold the thing right up to my eye to make sure it was flashing red and I was actually...
