The Polaroid Socialmatic camera is scheduled for release in late 2014/early 2015

ADR Studio first revealed the Socialmatic concept design back in 2012. A year later Polaroid announced that the chunky photo sharing and printing camera would hit stores by the close of 2014.

Gizmag takes a hands-on look at the Polaroid Z2300 digital instant camera

Although most people think of Polaroid instant cameras as retro relics from the 70s and 80s, those cameras did do something that today’s digital models don’t – they provided you with an on-the-spot photographic print.
