Surprise! Polaroid announced THREE new interchangeable lens cameras today

But wait, there's still more! Polaroid did not announce one interchangeable lens camera today. They announced THREE of them! Details and CSI detective work at Digital Camera Info. Polaroid also makes mention of Micro Four Thirds compatibility but it's not quite certain yet what they mean - it appears to be through some sort of an adapter.

The leader of the pack is the iM1836, that's the only one that runs on Android. Then there's the iM1232 with Wifi and the iM1030 without Wifi. The prices are $400, $350 and $300 respectively.

More coverage and comments on these at Engadget and The Verge.

If there is still confusion, I hope Engadget can ask the Polaroid CEO to clarify when they interview him live on Wednesday at 4pm NYC time.

As of the time of writing, there is no mention of these at the Polaroid news page or their digital camera page. Hopefully if/when they put them on their website, we will have more details?

Just like a good soap opera, we have to wait for the next episode in order to find out more :)

UPDATE #1: Basic specs of the leader of the three, the IM1836, can be found at the Sakar website (via For an incomplete and slanted history of Polaroid, check Wikipedia (that's what the wiki article says on top!)

UPDATE #2: This turns out is a modular type of a system similar to Ricoh GXR. Check the latest updates in this soap-opera.
