- Polaroid Z340 instant Digital Camera – released in 2011 and possesses both old and new technology. It is a fully functional digital camera with integrated printer
The company also had its fair share of controversies. It was locked in a patent battle with Kodak where Polaroid one, forcing Kodak to leave the instant camera business in 1986. It announced its decision to discontinue production of film in 2008 but decided to bring it back one year later.
