Remember the days of the instant camera? For a brief, glorious time, convenience met portability. Then digital cameras came along and no one seemed to want instant cameras anymore. Polaroid thinks there's still a market for that sort of camera, and so the Polaroid PIC-300 was introduced at CES 2010 this year. Now it is coming soon to a family reunion near you. (PhotographyBay)

This new instant camera doesn't work cheap though. While it only costs $90, the film will set you back $10 for a ten pack. A buck a picture? The slower, digital method is starting to look better and better all the time.

Also; these $1 photos aren't as large as the ones you remember from the old-timey Polaroids. They are around the size of a business card. At the moment, J&R is the only place to find them. The question is; are they worth a buy?

I don't see this camera being very popular for travel, but for school outings, family gatherings, and sporting events, I imagine it will find a place. The PIC-300 is extremely compact, which helps a bit to offset the extreme price of use. Not much, though.
