Polaroid is building its lineup of photo accessories to include LED lighting, tripods, flash and filters for pro and enthusiast photographers. They've come a long way from instant cameras.
New Polaroid items at the show are:
112 Bulb LED Light Bar
The 112 Bulb LED Light Bar is compact and features 112 cool running LEDs for even, natural lighting. The light’s flicker-free, consistent illumination is said to be suitable for shooting portraits and macro work. The light bar features a built-in adjustable dimmer, and removable barn doors for control over the light. Expected Adorama price: $79.95
Dual Flash & LED & Auto Zoom
This Dual Flash features full TTL dedication and a continuous LED light so it can be used for both still and video shooting. It also offers five levels of power ratio, 1/1 1/2 1/4 1/8 1/16, an automatic shutter speed setting, auto and manual zoom from 24-28-35-50-70-85mm, a flash readiness indicator and red-eye reduction and LCD display. Expected Adorama price: $129.99
Variable Neutral Density Filter
This filter is 6 filters in 1, offering a variable range of ND3, ND6, ND9, ND16, ND32, ND400.
The filter uses larger aperture settings in bright light, permitting a shallow depth of field and more background blur without affecting the color or detail of a scene. It also helps photographers eliminate overexposed & washed out images. Look for it to cost $49.99 at Adorama.
65" & 75" Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head
This tripod’s 100% carbon fiber tube design is 50% lighter than metal, yet Polaroid says it is every bit as rigid and durable. It includes a fully articulating ball head with removable plate. The tripod’s multi-section stay set flip lock legs are engineered for easy and precise setting, and the internal gasket design prevents dirt and grit from getting into the legs. This tripod is ideal for shooting on uneven terrain with ease thanks to the solid rubber tipped legs with retractable spikes. The tripod also comes with a padded case. Expected Adorama price: $149.99
All of the new Polaroid accessories will be available soon at the Polaroid Department at Adorama.
