Polaroid expands their existing line of hi-definition sports action cameras at the International Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10 in Las Vegas, NV. With performance-friendly features including high-definition resolution, Wi-Fi, auto rotation, waterproof technology, and ultra wide angle lenses, the new cameras are tailor-made for all athletes and action enthusiasts. The point-of-view cameras also come with mounting equipment, allowing photos and footage to be taken practically anywhere and from any angle.

Polaroid is all about capturing fun, in the moment images and video from the user’s unique point of view and that is what this fast growing sports action camera category does the best,” says Polaroid President and CEO Scott W. Hardy. “Adding Wi-Fi connectivity to our popular XS100 model will now allow users to share their unique videos and images instantly, which is the heart of what Polaroid is all about. With these cameras, whether it may be biking, skiing, snowboarding or surfing, we want to provide users the ability to capture and share their finest moments and moves with the best possible coverage, at vantage points like no other.”

The Polaroid XS100i camera builds upon the success of the XS100 model but adds Wi-Fi with iOS and Android apps so consumers can adjust settings remotely, watch video in real-time and share videos instantly with friends, family or social media.
