“Blend” of Old Analog & New Instant Digital: The Polaroid Z340

Got a wild hair one day last week and had a BLAST making this little video about the new Polaroid Z340 — a blend of old analog and new digital technologies. Hope you dig it enough to have a laugh, watch it again, and forward to your friends.

Polaroid has never been about specs or crazy high end performance, they’re about fun, instant prints, and kitsch. The Z340 delivers on that – perfect for the holidays and party time.

If you must know…
-14 Megapixels
-640×480 video
-2.5 inch LCD display
-SD card slot
-Zink zero ink prints in under 60-seconds (30 seconds faster than the old analog style…)

Available at here from B&H. Extra Zink paper can be found here. Happy holidays!

[Oh ya, that tune you hear in the background? That freshness is The Blakes. Check them here on iTunes. Aside: Remember I pimp Polaroid on the regular…AND…seriously… Don’t try this blending thing at home. I am a certified stunt man, and this can’t be good for your blender, your cameras, or your safety. Also: stay tuned for the outtakes… ]

    haha clever and well done. I like the simplicity. Reminds me of when I was a kid and used to watch movies where they’d destroy a perfectly good motorcycle. Always me cringe at first.

    OMG it’s super duper fun :_)

  3. Will December 20, 2011 at 9:54 am #

    Good one bud, bit wasteful though..

  4. Fahad Ayyad December 20, 2011 at 10:00 am #

    Haha I loved the idea

  5. James Kar December 20, 2011 at 10:05 am #

    Absolutely brilliant, great idea!

  6. chris December 20, 2011 at 10:05 am #

    damn. I need that blender.

  7. Scott Brown December 20, 2011 at 10:06 am #

    Bravo! Well done! Not what I was expecting!

    Now THAT was a fun day at the office….. Holiday Cheer!

      Heyy, you’re the KennaK from creativeLIVE right?

    • Chase December 20, 2011 at 8:30 pm #

      thanks kenna – was a blast ;)

  9. Jeremy December 20, 2011 at 11:07 am #

    Now…if they’d only make a way to print to this and the GL10 printer directly from the iphone. Very disappointed this hasn’t been worked out yet.

    Hope you didn’t breathe any of that dust, by the way…yikes…no telling what was in there. Lead, fiberglass, etc.

  10. Joshua December 20, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    I was totally surprised! I want to check the camera out now. Nice work.

  11. Kevin Fulton December 20, 2011 at 11:21 am #

    Very cool, but that poor 600!! Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. DanielKphoto December 20, 2011 at 1:46 pm #

    Haha very nice!

  13. jules December 20, 2011 at 2:01 pm #

    But…at the end…the camera can’t have taken that picture!

  14. Bruno Ázera December 20, 2011 at 3:21 pm #

    Awesome! :)

  15. Hunter Harrison December 20, 2011 at 3:31 pm #

    NOOOOOO! Poor 600. Please tell me you at least wasted a non-functioning camera. Finding old Polaroids is getting tough enough for those of us who prefer the real deal.

    • Chase Jarvis December 20, 2011 at 3:56 pm #

      Hi Hunter – don’t you worry. The cameras destroyed were inop, non-functional “stunt” cameras purchased at salvation army ;) Would never let a good 600 go to the sword! – chase

  16. John December 20, 2011 at 5:05 pm #

    Cool .. haha..

  17. Paddy December 20, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

    Nooo… I feel somewhat sold out by this Chase. I don’t expect any camera to survive a blender but it’s obvious money has changed hands for this video. I mean I love the idea of a polariod (though I’ve never owned one) but this is obvious selling out!

    • Chase December 20, 2011 at 8:29 pm #

      Paddy – I’ve had a very public relationship with polaroid for a long time – they even support my #cjLIVE show! I think they’re dope and I hope you do too.

    • JasonTobi December 20, 2011 at 9:29 pm #

      Besides isn’t that what we all hope to do someday – to sell out. Don’t we all want to make money by doing what we love?

  18. Mike December 20, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

    I like it, it does he job, i want one! Happy holidays!

  19. Luis Murillo December 20, 2011 at 6:38 pm #

    my main question here is…was that a blendtec blender? And that answers the question of “will it blend?”

  20. theo December 20, 2011 at 7:48 pm #

    I love how the “does it blend?” becomes the future product introduction.

  21. Christopher Shane December 21, 2011 at 5:33 am #

    Hahaha, definitely a good laugh and fun to watch. I’m sure it was a blast doing this!

  22. Guasch December 21, 2011 at 6:59 am #

    Woah coincidence, i was trying to repair my grandfather’s old polaroid 250 land camera yesterday! totally dig this, chase! great music too!

    • chase jarvis December 26, 2011 at 1:35 pm #

      thanks! Music is “Magic” by The Blakes. Avail on iTunes. check it…

  23. rcjaffe December 21, 2011 at 9:03 am #

    Wonderful, entertaining ad for a camera. Not completely clear if you wrote and directed this ad.

  24. Michael Tuuk December 21, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    Very clever…

  25. Shane Parker December 21, 2011 at 10:16 am #

    “Sell out” ??

    Jesus, that’s what we’re all trying to do! *slaps forehead*

    Great video, Chase!

  28. Armon December 21, 2011 at 11:11 pm #

    you realize that destroying an old Polaroid is pure sacrilege right?

    • Chase December 22, 2011 at 10:56 am #

      Armon – the camera that went in the blender was a broken, inoperable thrift store purchase. Hope that makes you feel better ;) stay tuned for the behind the scenes vid…

  29. Thomas MANGIERI December 21, 2011 at 11:11 pm #

    Really smart! I’m so glad I found your stuff on the internets. It’s been a real inspiration. (BTW: As a music junkie myself, I always appreciate the great tunes that accompany your vids.)

  30. Tyson December 22, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    What a great idea for a video. Plus I love those will it blend videos from Blendtec. Yours just has a little surprise at the end. Nice work!

  34. Genaro Menger November 18, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    Thanks for that article

  35. Haywood Barbero January 29, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    Thanks for the strategies you have provided here. In addition, I believe there are some factors which keep your auto insurance premium lower. One is, to take into account buying automobiles that are within the good list of car insurance companies. Cars which are expensive will be more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance policies are also in accordance with the value of your automobile, so the more costly it is, then higher a premium you spend.

  36. Heriberto Mcguinn January 29, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    One thing I would really like to say is car insurance termination is a horrible experience so if you’re doing the correct things like a driver you will not get one. A number of people do have the notice that they have been officially dropped by their own insurance company they have to fight to get more insurance from a cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates usually are hard to get from a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons with regard to auto insurance cancellation can help motorists prevent sacrificing one of the most essential privileges accessible. Thanks for the tips shared by means of your blog.
