New cameras that combine old-fashioned prints with modern features like Bluetooth offer the best of both worlds.
The new Polaroid Now+ is an analog camera with Bluetooth connectivity and five physical lens filters. The filters can be clipped onto the camera’s lens to change your photos’ contrast or add new effects. The rise of these hybrid cameras is fueling the debate over whether digital or film cameras are superior.
“Film gives the photographer a ‘classic’ look,” Paul J. Joseph, a professor of mass communications at Methodist University in North Carolina, told Lifewire in an email interview.
