Polaroid's Cube+ camera more useful thanks to Wi-FiThis update to the original Cube camera keeps everything good about the original, but can now be controlled with a smartphone.
[MUSIC] When the Polaroid Cube came out in 2014, it made a big splash due mostly to its super small design and single button operation. The Cube Plus picks up where the first left off. Same cool little box with a magnet on the bottom for mounting, but on top the big power and record button is joined by one to kick on its built in WiFi With that you can wirelessly connect to an IOS or Android device and preview your shot as well as change settings and control the camera. Coming in at $150, it has a pretty small price tag too for what you're getting. It records in full HD and up to 50 frames per second, or you can drop down to 720 P at 120 frames per second For some slow motion clips. The integrated battery lasts for a little over an hour of continuous recording, and takes about the same amount of time to fully charge. The cube plus does stills and burst shooting, and time-lapse videos also, and again, all of that can be set up with the mobile app. The camera's video quality is good, better than the original for sure, but still not great, especially in low light. Shoot outdoors in good lighting and view the clips on your smartphone, and they'll look just fine. If you need better video quality in the same cube form factor, spend the extra 50 dollars and go with the goPro hero 4 section now that it's down at 200 dollars. But if you're just looking for a tiny camera to have fun with and then share that fun online the Polaroid [INAUDIBLE] is worth its price. [MUSIC]
